VIDEO: Daredevil snowboarding in Estonia

Snowboarding in Estonia has become a pretty rare activity during the winter months – simply because the country doesn’t get much snow anymore. But that hasn’t stopped the daredevils.

A group of snowboarders recently made it to a short video clip, made by Priit Palumaa.

“Due to the global climate change, snowboarding in Estonia has become a pretty rare activity during the winter months. We get natural snow for two weeks and the ski resorts struggle with making enough snow to build and maintain a proper snowboard park. Despite the depressing conditions, I tried to stay positive and managed to stack enough footage to put together this snowboard video,” Palumaa said in an introduction on the YouTube.

Music in the video is a track called “Hyperstress”, by an Estonian band I Wear* Experiment.
