The Inertia

For every snowboard or skiing clip you’ve ever seen, it’s very likely that each trick wasn’t a one-and-done. Success is built upon a foundation of failures, after all, and when your success comes from bucking your body off of something large or down something steep, that foundation is difficult to build.

The Collective was a really good ski film from Faction Skis, and like every other good ski film, behind each nailed line and every stomped trick, there was a series of crash landings and failed attempts. The Collective crash edit tells the story of all the times things didn’t go as planned, and the result is six minutes of tomahawks, missed knuckle hits, and all manner of almost-made-its.
