After releasing footage of the then 12-year-old Henry Sildaru tearing it down La Clusaz, Faction are back with another edit, this time featuring a 13-year-old Henry chasing the Finnish style-master Antti Ollila through his home park of Ruka, Finland.
From charging over natural hits full-hog in La Clusaz, to styling things out in Ruka, this Estonian kid is showing the freestyle scene that he’s got what it takes to become one of the most versatile 13 year olds out there. Okay, that’s harsh – Henry’s certainly got what it takes to one day become one of the finest skiers on the planet.
Harking back to the now classic Candide edits, this one’s short of a soundtrack – just the blissful sound of skis sliding rails and wind rushing past the cameraman. Oh, the things we’d do to be back in the mountains right now.
