Extrapolate with Nils Mindnich

Could you figure out the equation to find the perfect pond skim? Nils Mindnich puts his engineering degree to the test in Extrapolate, a comedic short featuring some funky edits and fun spring boarding.

A word from Giro about the video: 

In times like these, where all of our classes and meetings take place in our homes on Zoom, it’s so easy to get distracted and for your mind to wander…

When your life as a rider has involved the thrill of competing in halfpipe and slopestyle competitions for a decade, filming video parts for over seven years, and (starting last year) competing in the Freeride World Tour (taking first in Fieberbrunn, Austria!), you can see why it would be hard for switch-ninja and style-master, Nils Mindnich, to stay focused on Zoom calls all day. Luckily, you can go on a daydream with him as he takes his board and his dirt bike through the Utah desert and mountain roads to then skin up to one of the most vibrant pond skims you’ve ever seen.
