DC’s Devun Walsh and Iikka Backstrom Launch New Web Project
DC pro snowboarders Devun Walsh and Iikka Backstrom have teamed up on a new project and webisode series called “Polar Opposites” launching today, Monday, February 28th. This much anticipated project will give an up close and personal look into the daily lives of two of snowboarding’s best through a blog written by Devun and Iikka along with four webisodes featuring all new footage from the duo this season. The first of four video edits is now live so be sure to check it out at: http://www.polaropp.com.
In the tradition of some of the greatest duo’s in sports and entertainment, Devun Walsh and Iikka Backstrom have teamed up to bring the public an close and personal look into their lives over the course of a season – from filming in the backcountry to traveling the world. These friends and DC teammates have been shooting together for various projects for a better part of a decade. From movies such as That, Double to Decade, and In Color they’ve been through season after season of from injuries, hangovers, weather delays, FT’s, and perfect bluebird days and have managed to bring you some damn fine snowboarding along the way.
Devun and Iikka’s relationship is an interesting one. They are, as the name of their project states, polar opposites. The formula for their friendship is a scientific anomaly, similar to the physics that makes opposites attract. But much like oil and vinegar, two things that have no business on the same plate, they just work. There are some things that just belong together even if it really makes no sense.
