In search of spring lines, stoke and scotch, the Puzzle Media crew, along with British Freeride founders and friends, headed north to the Scottish Highlands in May this year. Our team had twenty days to plan and execute an exploration of the Scottish backcountry, capturing the beauty of the Highlands along the way. We met some crazy characters, contended with classic Scottish storms and lugged our body weight in gear to some of Scotland’s loftiest summits. We were rewarded with some exceptional conditions and terrain as good as any you would find in Alpine regions. LATE is the story of our end of season ski and snowboard escapade in Scotland.
We are TheBUNCH and you have finally arrived to our second full length film, Finess.
This joint right here is one of the hottest blends of stylez, bends and presses ever. With out any requirements defining a whole new genre of skiing.
We got a family of artists, skiers and producers put together.
And by combining their talents and gifts developed way beyond our previous far out trips.
We took the rarest ingredients, mixed them and fused it.
And now we are giving it to you all so you can gain from it and use it
Ofcourse we had to put our signature on it so you can't confuse it.
After five years, twelve webisodes and over one million views the last ski film project under the name Nipwitz is set to release. The two-year project, entitled Brain Massage, premiered at Helsinki Bio Rex Theatre on the 1st of November 2014 followed by a national premiere tour and an online release.
As the first and the last movie by the groundbreaking Finnish ski crew, Brain Massage showcases a new twist to the good old Nipwitz-approach making it genuinely one of the most unique projects in the modern freeskiing era. Shot in the cities of Scandinavia, The Baltic, Russia and beyond, Brain Massage offers a package that, once again, certainly isn’t your average ski movie.
