“The Provo video had sick angles that were creative and gave me an exciting perspective on hitting lines and riding powder; there was great light, the video traveled through sick terrain, cool landscapes, skier and snowboarder, shredding in the mountains.

“Mindset was awesome. These guys used the cam in a lot of unique ways, with all the different mounts they captured a unique view of the action. They set the scene with a cool vibe that was full of tree ripping, air sending, chute railing, madness.”
