It isn’t often that an eight minute film is able to capture the joy, energy, and creativity that comes with being in the outdoors. Wndr Alpine‘s new film Hardwired does just that, though, with a focus on the snowboards the team builds by hand from microalgae oil instead of petroleum in Salt Lake City. Snowboarders Nick Russell and Alex Andrews test the final products in the Wasatch and Uinta mountains.

Hardwired was made by Eliel Hindert with support from Black Koles.
