300 years ago the Industrial Revolution had just started and America was still a British Colony. But also 300 years ago people in Petran, Turkey, were already snowboarding.

“It’s not snowboarding as we know it, but you’ll recognize it. In this film by WRKSHRT, we follow Alex Yoder and Nick Russell into Turkey’s Kaçkar Mountains on a quest to unearth the unlinked heritage of snowboarding and have some fun in the process.” – Patagonia Snow
