After you finish wiping the tear out of your eyes, you will have just begun to appreciate the talent of filmmaker Brad Kremer and his snowboarding subjects. This week’s video features Nike Team members Sage Kotsenburg, Louie Vito, Gjermund Braaten, Jamie Nicholls, Ethan Morgan, Jan Scherrer, Peetu Piiroinen, Austin Smit and the ever-mischievous Danny Kass. Aside from the epic riding abilities of the team, the equally amazing setting of Montafon, Austria took this edit to an entirely different level. The combination of state-of-the-art camera equipment, fantastical landscape and artfully crafted terrain park allowed Kremer to create a true masterpiece.

Even Brad Kremer was beyond impressed with the setup at Silvretta, saying, ”I’ve seen a lot of amazing parks in my days, but I have to say that what they built at Montafon for Nike was at the top of the list.” He went on to say, ”This project actually brought me back to my roots. “It’s a little more on the raw side compared to what I have been doing lately. A polished raw, of course. I think that’s why the end result is so fun.”

This is one snowboarding edit that is well-worth the second play through. But why stop there?
