Contraddiction: A Snowboard Movie From Elias Elhardt

After a successful movie tour snowboarder Elias Elhardt has finally released his movie, ‘Contraddiction’ online for everyone around the world to enjoy for free. 

Press Release: Contradiction and addiction – both blend into one when it comes to the passion snowboarding. Elias pursues the questions which are most important to him. How can you bring Snowboarding in line with a responsible life? How can you deal with the contradictions which come along? How about the ecological footprint? How about the conflict of growing up with a sport, which keeps the kid in us alive and kicking?  Together with some of his best friends and companions Elias follows these questions and tries to find answers; among them Austrian Gigi Rüf, Frenchman Arhtur Longo and German Marco Smolla, who quit his active snowboarding career a while ago. Kevin Boyce from Mt. Baker (USA) gives fascinating insights into his life. Age doesn’t matter to live your dream, which Kevin impressively demonstrates. Being over 60 years old doesn’t hinder him to snowboard up to 100 days a year. The movie is a true and authentic portrait of a generation growing up with snowboarding combined with impressive snowboarding skills of the protagonists. Elias says: “The most beautiful love letter I could write, is also the most honest one. This basic idea has followed me through the process of making the CONTRADDICTION movie.“
