Project DETOUR: Greece
ProjectDETOUR is a new short film series shot at different locations across the Alps, Greece and California by Nixon snowboarder David Bertschinger Karg, or DBK, featuring Nicolas Müller and Stephan Maurer along with friends Shayne Pospisil, Austin Smith, Levi Luggen, Kevin Backström, Tyler Chorlton and many more.
This very first episode brings us to Greece, a country not in the best place right now both economically and politically where one 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 along with Shayne Pospisil, Austin Smith and Levi Luggen learned that Greeks will welcome you with open arms, no matter 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.
There are three films in total: Greece, California, and Alps, each with their own unique feeling. Stay tuned for the next episodes, especially the Alps one in which Nicolas Müller and DBK will illustrate the definition of backcountry riding.
