The Spirit of Flatness– Snowboarding in Finland

The Spirit of Flatness is a documentary film about traveling through the country of Finland, snowboarding and figuring out how to excel in the sport in such difficult (flat) geographical conditions, practically without any mountains.

Finland has some of the best snowboarders in the world, so this film follows two interesting riders on the trip. They explore how snowboarding can be done in Finland.

They drive 350km in to the Arctic Circle and also show the highest mountain top where probably no one has ever ridden a snowboard before.
