Tasty urban and pow action in your Swiss buck Elio Fumagalli's part from the new Mindset PRDCTNS movie, A Love Like Mine Is Hard To Find... Get 'er in ya!
Switzerland has been blessed with its fair share of super styled riders over the years. From the likes of Michi Albin and Darius Heristchian to Nicolas Müller and Fredi Kalbermatten, there seems to be something in all that cheese and chocolate that brings out the swag in a person's snowboarding.
The new generation don't look too shabby either, and seem to be carrying on the Swiss tradition of silky style with the precision of a surgeon. Unsurprisingly a bunch of them are base in - or regularly ride - Laax and its epic combination of rad backcountry terrain and the much-feted park setup there. Elio is one of a crew of young up-and-comers, and we've become accustomed to seeing his riding in the regular Crap Show edits, and those from the Laax Surf Club crew of fresh-faced senders.
But most of that is focussed on the park. For his part in the new Mindset PRDCTNS, however, Elio peaced out on the man-made terrain and instead focussed his attentions on bossing the streets and pow. As the Laax crew who passed this on to us say, it's "a debut that promises a bright future for the maestro."
Indeed it does. Filmed in Laax, Italy and Finland, Elio's got some bangers in this for sure - we were digging that waterfall rail to 270 out - but we also have to throw some shakas to the Mindset boys here too: we were digging the filming, editing, tune and general vibe to this. Once you've had your fill of Elio's part, we'd suggest heading over and checking the whole movie out - go watch A Love Like Mine Is Hard To Find here.
