I have been shooting with the pirate crew a couple of years now. Those trips are always a guarantee for producing great footage of really talented snowboarders, in this case Fredrik Evensen. We were looking for natural features on that trip as the snow was piling up – more than two meters in a couple of days – and it kept snow-ing and snowing. We found a spot close to Arabba in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy.
There where a lot of boulder rocks lying around but just a few of them had doable in-runs and landings. Fred found this one and stomped this backie on the first try. It wasn’t easy to shoot in those conditions because my lens caught a lot of snow due to the heavy snowfall but it turned out to be one of the best shots of this trip. The lens I used was a 16mm fisheye paired with my Nikon D3s.
