Video: Wanna See Crazy “Freeskiing?” Watch BEING THERE

I don’t get the chance to ski or snowboard often (its been 4 years), but each time I see videos involving such it just brings back that good old feeling. This video is a MUST see.

Field Productions is proud to present their eighth ski movie installment: Being There.

With some of the best skiers within all aspects of modern freeskiing, and a passionate film crew equipped with the best of HD cameras, this movie will both thrill and amaze you. Along side amazing action shots and mind blowing scenery, this movie will give you a behind the scenes look at the production itself.

You should have been there when wonder kid Jesper Tjäder shocked the whole film crew with his urban skiing or when Tom Wallisch was head of production at Strandafjellet. You should have been there when Aleksander Aurdal proved how much of a man he is or when Aksel Lund Svindal had unforgettable days in Lofoten.

Featured athletes:
Tom Wallisch, Jesper Tjäder, PK Hunder, Aleksander Aurdal, Even Sigstad, Henrik Windstedt, Aksel Lund Svindal, Eirik Finseth, Anders Backe, Ole Mustad, Fridtjof Fredricsson, Åsmund Thorsen, Asbjørn Eggeboe Naess, Russ Henshaw, Kevin Rolland, Thomas Dølplads, Jon Olsson

Video: American Made | Stockholm

Looks interesting, but I’ll let someone else explain the purpose of this.


No country is devoted to basketball and the NBA like the US, and companies who have a big stake in the basketball business are scrambling to open up new markets. The arrival of Yao Ming in the NBA in 2002 is essentially the model, and now the NBA and other big athletic companies are searching for next Yao with development programs in places like India. One possible candidate to break the mold again is Swede Jonas Jerebko, who has been playing in the NBA since 2009, and is a part of the Nike stable. Now, through the Sportswear division, Nike has produced a four part mini-documentary, revolving around Jerebko and his fellow Swede, hip hop artist Adam Tensta. The project is called AMERICAN MADE, and will culminate in a basketball tournament hosted by Jerebko and Tensta February 18th in Stockholm. The tournament will feature four teams from Cali Crew, Sneakersnstuff, Tres Bién Shop and Shelta, and if that model sounds familiar, you might remember the adi Cup. Look for the first of the four videos at the Nike Sportswear Sweden Facebook page, starting February 8th.
