Vans presents: First Layer - A short snowboard film

‘First Layer’ is a unique project showcasing Vans’ dynamic European snowboard team.

The edit includes riders such as Arthur Longo, Sami Luhtanen, Will Smith, Sparrow Knox, Markus Keller and many other talented snowboarders from all over Europe. This short film isn’t a feature length epic, but is neither a webseries or a podcast: it’s a raw and condensed look back at the 2015 winter, documenting our journey through the night of Lapland to the mountainous terrain of Patagonia and deep Alpine powder.

Delivering a blend of street riding, backcountry and travel, the team highlights their unique vision of snowboarding.

FIRST LAYER is edited by Austrian master of video, Pirmin Juffinger, and presented by Vans.

The talented French photographer, art director and long-standing member of the Vans Family – Matt Georges – also documented the journey. Compiling his favourite shots from last winter, First Layer also comes to life as a 100page printed book, available for free, exclusively and in very limited quantities from your local snowboard store.
