The loosest crew in snowboarding presented their latest flick 'Cali Beaches' in Zurich the other night, so after all the madness that is happening right now during this premiere season we decided to bring you a little clarity with an interview to explain how it all came together. Read on to find out more about the crew, how they got a beer pong sponsor and what goes into making a crew edit.
Who’s in the crew?
Leandro Eigensatz aka Slim Slimmiez
Max Buri aka Suck ma Dick (hahahah, kidding)
Lucas Baume aka Yung Doli
How did you all meet?
We were all riding for the Swiss-snowboard Team! So we travelled and "trained“ a lot together.
Why did you decide to make a crew edit?
Because we all quit riding contest one after the other! And we were all over it, to be told what to do and to come in the last place at every contest we did! Haha!
And yeah, Max is filming with Absinthe, so he’s already on the Boss level, but Leo and I (Yung D) struggled really hard to film with any production, so we tried to do our own thing without any budget... So we sat down with the Laax Crew because we wanted to something new (Minipipe Edit)! And they were super down to help us film it! And I think the edit was pretty dope and it wasn’t something everybody else was doing!
And then we went to Cali for a month; we got really lucky that Doodah (swiss snowboard shop) helped us get a filmer for the trip! Hahaha, this trip was loose as fuck… But that’s actually the deal of the whole concept.
Who was behind the lens filming most?
So for The Minipipe Madness in Laax, it was Lukas “Blume” Rösli! And for the Cali trip, it was French Boss Lionel Simon!
Who was in charge of the edit/music choice?
We usually discuss it with the filmer and decide together what we think could be dope and would fit the video
What other trips did you go on?
We didn’t have the chance to go on any other trips, but we sure are gonna try to make shit happens for next winter !!! Gang Gang Skrrt Skrrt
What are your plans for this winter?
We would love to do some more of this shit! But for now, we couldn’t get any help from anybody…paying a filmer, travelling is expensive! But we will for sure continue to do our own shit and try to make something that people get to have fun watching it ☺
Why do you call yourself FTS?
FTS stands for “FUCK THIS SHIT” Hahaha! Because we are just a bunch of really close homies having the best time and trying to film all the bullshit that goes on in a Snowboarder Lyfe! Booze Loose!
Have you ever had the perfect game of Beer pong, with no missed shots?
Hahaha! Ma Duude, we all wish! But we are pretty much killing it! Haha! Leo and I are the current Laax Open Champions! And I just got my first Beer Pong Sponsor! (MyBeerPong.ch) Haha! So we better work hard on it!
