Procrastinators Corner, Ski / 21.08.2015

If there's anything out there that hypes me up for the winter. It's a solid edit or upcoming film. Sometimes we get a trailer that just gets the blood pumping with excitement.

GoPro's fist Line of the Winter Award along with $20,000 was awarded to Leo Taillefer this past weekend. After watching the edit, there's no doubt they made the right choice. This edit is sick! It was actually a little more fun watching Leo get the news that he'd won. Such a humble and cool dude. Leo has quite the background skiing Val d'Isère in France. Growing up, that was his mountain. He talked about how when he was younger he would sneak off and...

This descent is a great feat and...

The WSJ wrote up a fabulous article exposing Djokovic's secret to his phenomenal play. I know right?! Maybe you too can now play at the high level of all the pros. It really doesn't take much. Just some snow, 2 sticks under your feet and 2 poles in your hand. You guessed it. Skiing. The Joker's been skiing since the age of 2. His family owned a pizza parlor at a ski resort in Kopaonik. That said. Now when you watch him play,...

I gotta be honest. Sometimes when I go down a mountain, I treat it like a video game in my head. Avoiding crowds, getting points off sweet jumps, nailing a clean landing etc. Nikolai Schimer must be a mind reader with his latest GoPro edit. The GoPro's Youtube page posted Nikolai's edit and it's not disappointing in any way. It's like he took what I envisioned in my mind and slapped all together. Everything from the 8bit lettering to the awesome music....
