It’s not so often we get to post about the Russian snowboard scene, here at Onboard HQ. There was a belter of film from Quiksilver Russia a few seasons back, there’s the Rome Snowboards project, the infamous WEARE2012 posse who just won an award at the Snowboard Garden Film Festival, and now we’ve got ПОВОРОТ, which means ‘TURN’ in English.
We’re feeling the urge to do another Kamchatka trip after this. Looks like the chaps got more than their fair share of the white gold. Featuring Maxim Balakhovskiy, Andrey Moskvin, Artem Teymurov, Yura Chemodurov, Evgeniy Ivanov, Artem Sheldovitskiy, and others, – here’s what they had to say on the new feature flick:
ПОВОРОТ is a new Russian video project by Quiksilver and Unity Films in association with Nissan, Svyaznoy Travel and Helipro
Two years of searching and exploring the new snow regions of Planet Earth, epic performance by the best Russian snowboarders and the world-known stars in the most decent mountains, high quality shooting and editing — the new action film by Andrew Pirumov is going to become a historical moment in Russian snowboarding. The movie will hit the screens in November, 2015
