Just a normal day with candide thovex.
I'm Pekka. A 21 years old guy. Injured pretty damn seriously on 28.4.2010. That is a date I remember well, even though I can't remember anything that happened that day. I have heard some stories from my friends about how it happened: I had yelled from the lift "I'll go one more time, this is the last one", and the last one it was. I did it because the switch double cork 10's I had done were a bit unstable. Switch doubles were an easy trick for me, but that day was windy and a really strong blast of wind grasped me and I landed way too far, over-rotating my trick. In the crash, I broke my helmet (the Sweetest black thing, that saved my life), I gained a serious / extremely serious brain injury and sank into a coma for 17 days. Next thing I know, was laying in the hospital, next summer. The rehabilitating process has been a rough one to me, but I have still been able to rehabilitate myself amazingly fast! The biggest weaknesses the injury brought along are my memory problems, which have fallen away majorly, and balance problems, which have also fallen away pretty much too. The predictions I got from doctors were pretty dark: Will be able to walk in 2 years, might not be able to ski ever again and I don't know the whole list. But what I do know: walked after about 6 MONTHS after the crash and skied for the first time after 11 months. So that's the thing in a nutshell, follow my rehabilitation in the blog!

"Four Day Season" is exactly what the title says; four days of skiing. However, these four days ended up being Eric Pollard's entire season after he broke his leg in Russia. Filmed entirely in Eric's back yard on Mt. Hood.

A couple shots of Candide riding the EarlyCamp Park in Val Thorens.
This winter I was fortunate to go to a lot of big contests as well as I got to film with Field Productions which was a dream come true for me. When I've not been out travelling, I have tried to film as much as I can on my own to make this part. I hope you guys like it!
In 2013 Stept Productions embarked on their largest film project to date. After 12 years of producing ski films, Stept is proud to announce their newest feature, "Mutiny". The film documents progressive young skiers as they commence on a mission around the United States. Using the biggest cities in the country as their playground, the Stept crew sacrifices their health as they continue to redefine street skiing. Groundbreaking action, coupled with an award winning film crew brings a dark and mysterious story to light. Mutiny is intended for a mature audience and is dedicated to exposing the viewer to the raw and unfiltered world of the Stept crew. The films release will coincide with the drop of Stept Fall '13 apparel line. To pre-order the film and other merchandise, as well as find out more about Stept, please visit http://www.steptproductions.com.
We'll claim, in our unbiased opinion, that this is one of the heaviest and most well rounded segs of the year. Ahmet crushed. 'Nough said.
All my best shots from Mammoth this past season
The Armada Team journeyed out to South Korea this past February to see what the skiing culture in and around Seoul was all about. They spent most of their time at High 1 Resort, exploring the mountain and all of the concrete and rock ledges surrounding the hotel area.

Will and Andy return to Salt Lake City for early-season training!
I busted my knee skiing in NZ this summer, so I'm out for the season. Herman Fjøss and I put together some shots I had from Vierli ( Norway ), shredding and filming with the RK1 crew and Perisher ( Australia ), skiing with the Norwegian Freeski Team, before I dislocated my knee and tore my ACL and Meniscus. Stoked that I learned some new stuff before it happened and that I got to film a little bit. I'll be back next season!

Sean Jordan's Full Street Part from Mutiny
Christian Allen slimin around the park
Searching and creating new places to ski. Finding places that's not meant to be skied. In a city, many miles from the nearest ski hill. Fueling up every night so we can survive in the white cold jungle, getting kicked out by cops, security guards or the law in general. Trespassing and vandalism just for the possibility of getting a usable shot. Many hours of work is getting down to just a few seconds of footage. We have been focusing on the skiing in the city, the opportunities you have and the whole lifestyle of being a urban skier all winter.
