"No-one told us who we were.
No-one told us we should this.
No-one told us it would be easy.
Someone said we are our dreams, that if we don't dream, we are not linger alive.
Our steps follow our instinct and take us into the unknown.
We no longer see the obstacles behind us, but look forward the ones ahead.
It's not about being the fastest, the strongest or the biggest...It's about being ourselves.
We are not just runners, mountaineers or skiers...or even athletes...we are people.
We don't know if we'll find it, but we're going in search of happiness.
What is it we're looking for? To be alive?"
Longtime Jiberish snow Fam Tom Wallisch turned the freeskiing world upside down in 2007 with the edit he submitted for Level 1 productions "Superunknown" contest. He showcased an effortless and confident style of riding that had not been previously been seen.
5 years later we wanted to create a follow up to that edit so we enlisted the help of the very talented team at Stept Productions to shoot Tom at Breckenridge. Having the cinematography and editing match the level of riding was very important to us in planning this project. The toughest part was deciding what to cut to fit everything into a tidy 3 minutes.
We have always found common ground with Tom over the focus on style in every aspect of life. Enjoy the best park skier in the world doing what he does best.
