Classic Clip: Eliel Hindert,This Kid Goes F*ing Huge

March 29th, 2014 by

Eliel Hindert can be described with two words: Bouncy Ball. He’s basically a 15 year old boy trapped in a 22yr old body. Eliel is the the most excited human you’ll ever meet and he’s always doing something, always moving (trust me people this is more than add). This is a video from Eliel’s 2009/2010 season. Filmed entirely by Dendrite Studios. It’s F*ing sick! The kid sends. 

Highlight of the video: 2:36 (into space)

-Also if you haven’t seen Dendrite’s award winning movie Out of the Shadows I suggest you download the flick ASAP. It’s really cool because just like you and I the masterminds at Dendrite Studios are also starving ski bums and have thoughtfully made Out of the Shadows available online at a “pay what you want rate”. Cool eh! But if you’re feeling frisky, maybe you just won the lottery, or you have your dad’s credit card why not donate a little more…

Still Awesome: A Skier’s Journey – Dubai

“In 40 degree heat, in the largest sand desert on the planet, Chad Sayers and Chad Manley go looking for the one of the world’s strangest of ski environments: Ski Dubai. In the midst of a city of dizzying ambition, this ‘local hill’ climbs 60 vertical meters out of a luxury shopping mall. Inside the frigid, air conditioned space, they find a dedicated ski community of desert-dwellers, growing in the unlikeliest of places.”

Still Funny: Corbet’s Couloir Fail With Real Time Call Out

November 13th, 2013 by

This guy sends it off the headwall of Corbet’s, to an epic fail. Despite the dissuasion of the cameraman, this kid sends it anyway. Props to the camera man for actually calling him out before he lands, following up with an insult before he stops rolling. “How’s your back!?”
