Snowboarding into another dimension: Lemuria from United Shapes
Snowboarding doesn’t have to be a complicated endeavor. It can be as simple as turning, moving and flowing with the landscape around you. Those movements have the power to transcend consciousness. When you couple that ideology with the Lemurian mountain, as United Shapes’ Felix Mobarg and Gray Thompson did, you reach a whole new level of snowboarding awareness. Travel along with the two as they go edge to edge on one of the most mysterious peaks on the continent.

Lemuria. Legend says it is a sacred place, a portal into another dimension of the universe. United Shapes sent Felix Mobarg and Gray Thompson to explore the Lemurian mountain, to search for signs of life and insights into another dimension. With snowboards as their vessels, they navigated Lemuria in style, chasing one another down the rolling, volcanic terrain and into the dark, dense forests that surround the mountain.
With cinematographer Sam Tuor along for the ride, they returned home with moving images of the powerful mountain, covered in snow and cast in sunlight. This, is Lemuria.
