projectDETOUR: Greece, a short film

Economically and politically, Greece is not in the best place right now. The country is pretty much in shambles. You would imagine the widespread problems seed despair in its citizens, uncertain of their home’s future. But the rich culture of Greece won’t allow for that.

DBK, Shayne Pospisil, Austin Smith and Levi Luggen learned that Greeks will welcome you with open arms, no matter what the situation. Though this Mediterranean country is not necessarily known for its snowboarding, it is the epitome of rolling with the punches, making the most of what you have and having a kick ass experience with your friends. Greece was every bit in the spirit of projectDETOUR.

A big thank you to Ronny Skevis for your hospitality and for helping make this trip incredible.

projectDETOUR is a short film series by David Bertschinger Karg, or DBK for short. There are three films in total: Greece, California, and Alps, each with their own unique feeling.

The next episode will be California, and you can watch it right here on
