In the age of the web series, quality strains to keep up with deadlines and uniqueness can easily become illusive. With lifestyle now sharing the spotlight with shred, missing a moment is not an option and immediacy can easily over power standards. However, there are a few webisodes that have managed to overcome these problems that plague the trade, and, as with every other aspect of the ski industry, the Scandinavians have managed to keep right up there with the best of them. Ahead of the pack comes a blend of riding, wacky antics and more so tasty, it will put you in rehab. If you haven't heard of them yet, let me introduce you to Shred' N Breakfast.
Who is Shred' n Breakfast and when/where did it come from?
We´re the three best friends that anyone could have; Kim Boberg, Lasse Nyhaugen and Lars Haakon Hafsal. We all went to the same school in Lillehammer, Norway (Kim is swedish). Kim´s dad bought a camera, because he wanted to see what we were doing the whole winter instead of reading the blogs. We started to film, and decided to make webisodes through out the season and show people how much fun we have when we are out traveling and skiing together.
Debuting two years ago with an amazing first season packed with unmatched riding abilities and kooky antics, Shred' N Breakfast pushed the envelope of the web series and has never let up. Combining an amazing standard of production quality with copious amounts of zany behind the scenes footage, SNB quickly became a common name among the freeski industry and as interest grew and grew, so did the series.
How has it grown since the beginning?
At first it was a thing just for fun, but it seemed like people liked it and it quickly became really popular, so we decided to keep going and make more episodes. The amount of viewers has grown every single year, which we believe and hope is a result of a better production, even though the concept is still the same.
Shred' N Breakfast has consistently raised the bar for webisodes since their birth. Not only has the production quality and humor remained way ahead of the game, but the unbridled level of riding keeps each upcoming episode a delectable and highly anticipated treat. This is partly in thanks to their extensive star-studded cast/family of skiers riding at the highest level the sport offers.
During the last few years we have more or less become a family, with a lot of friends in the ski industry who make Shred´n Breakfast what it is today. I think people enjoy the fact that we're as laid back as we are.
However, in the web-series game it's all about perfecting a balance between jaw-dropping ability and intriguing behind the scenes material, of which the guys at Shred' N Breakfast have in excess.
The funny things usually happen before the camera is even on, and the truth is that people don't even see half the stupid stuff that happens. In fact we believe that the show wouldn't be that good if we TRIED being funny all the time. There are not a lot of boring days during the SNB winter and that's what we want to show you guys.
In the wake of an amazing second season, Shred' N Breakfast is back to continue pushing the boundaries of entertainment with yet another line-up of jaw-dropping webisodes. Having established themselves in the web series game as a frontrunner, the boys at SNB have their sights set on improving some of their most defining qualities as well as making themselves much more accessible.
What should we be expecting from this season of Shred' n Breakfast?
We will keep the same concept but keep progressing the whole production (filming, editing etc.) We are getting a website (www.shrednbreakfast.com) where all the episodes will be released, keep you updated on what's going on, drop bonus edits, and basically just make it easier for people to follow us through the winter.
Our main goal is to make something unique. We feel that we've managed to do that and that's basically our formula. The progression of the series comes natural, as we "work" with the project every single day.
This season and beyond, where is Shred' n Breakfast heading?
Its hard to say, and we are taking it day by day, but we are gonna keep doing it as long as we have fun making it! Right now its the best part of the season.
