As the 2018 slopestyle season prepares to kick off at Crankworx Rotorua the world's best freeriders are beginning to emerge from the long, cold nights of winter. But when the first rider drops into the Redwoods at the weekend, there'll be no time for lethargy.

The champagne hangovers of the 2017 season may have long since faded but the top slopestyle pro's will have been locked into training routines for many months now. When they're not riding many dig. 

And that's the case with Thomas Genon who invited Harrison Mendel, Nic Genovese and Bartek Woliński into his training compound to check out some renovation work he'd just finished.

Shot at dawn this "at home" film project was an atmospheric, alternative approach to shooting  the 'traditional' slopestyle action clip.
