In Northbound, four Norwegian skaters traded the sidewalks and rails for ice, driftwood, waves and frozen sand. What\u2019s astounding is that the lads pulled it off! It turns out mad urban skills can be applied to the most uncanny environments.\r\n\r\nThe skaters found that the cold and sand made it very challenging to perform tricks they could usually stomp with their eyes closed. Their trucks got stiff from the cold, so the skaters didn\u2019t have any board feel. But then again, it made it so much cooler to stick the basic tricks.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe guys even built a ramp out of wood and filled it with sand and fresh water. A few days later, a big storm came in and washed the whole ramp away, so they were lucky and got the perfect ending to the film. It\u2019s the lighting conditions that make this imagery truly memorable. \u201cThe amazing thing about travelling north is that the light is so different there. In summer the sun never sets, and in winter the sun never rises\u201d said J\u00f8rn Nyseth Ranum, Director of Northbound.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNorthbound has been out for a few months and its only 8 minutes long. So if you haven\u2019t seen it yet, what\u2019s stopping you? Certainly not ice or sand.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
