Finn Bilous | Growing Pains

By: Downdays June 20, 2020

New Zealand shredder Finn Bilous put his lockdown time to good use by assembling this 8-minute joyride through his footage from the past few seasons.

“2020 has been a crazy year thus far. Covid-19 put an abrupt halt on the past Northern Hemisphere season and had an ongoing effect on essentially everybody’s life in one way or another. For me, having come home to New Zealand a few months earlier than expected, I found myself with more spare time than I’d usually have during this time of year. Therefore, during our nationwide lockdown, I spent many hours compiling old footage that I’d sporadically managed to acquire over the past few seasons, and this 8-minute self-cut is the result of that.

“With so many wild stories and images in the media at the moment, I hope this clip breaks up your feed, puts a smile on your face and gets you frothy for the upcoming winter ahead! A huge thanks to all the people that filmed this edit, my friends for all the sick times over the past few years, my family for the constant love and support, my sponsors and team for making this lifestyle possible and of course skiing, for the fun, so many life lessons and the countries, cultures, and people that you’ve introduced me to.” – Finn Bilous
