Summer Ski Stoke: ‘Anywhere From Here’ Looks Like Pure Magic

What do you get when you ask a 12-year-old freeskiing phenom: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ Some pretty rad answers and, thanks to Matchstick Productions, some even cooler footage.

Walker Shredz does exactly what his chosen last name describes. We’ve rarely seen a grommet so stoked, and that’s saying something.

But it turns out the youngster also possesses some of the patience and maturity his first name brings to mind.

Find out what Walker and other mega-talented freeskiers like Tonje Kvivik and Markus Eder are up to in “Anywhere From Here.” You won’t want to miss the full film, but the trailer contains a pretty cool narrative all by itself.

Runtime: 3.5 minutes
