Burning Sidewall: Line Skis, Eric Pollard introduce the Sakana

Eric Pollard and Line Skis are pushing the envelope of ski design with the all-new Sakana. Sitting at 105 mm underfoot and featuring the same swallowtail design as its predecessor, the Pescado, the Sakana integrates powder skiing design elements in a package that’s equally at home on the hardpack. With a tight turn radius and stiff carbon-flax integration in its core, this ski can slice, cut and arc across every kind of snowpack.

In the short film, “Burning Sidewall,” Pollard invites fellow Line team rider Rob Huele and friend James Griffin to celebrate the art of skiing at Oregon’s Timberline Lodge. Carving trenches, slashing turns, flipping, spinning, pressing and blasting around the rolling terrain at Mt. Hood, this high-octane crew showcase the Sakana’s true versatility, from the terrain park to the groomers and everything in between.

Following the idea that seeing is believing, this film is “less of an explanation of the ski but rather a celebration of skiing.” Directed and edited by Nimbus Independent and set to the groovy, soulful tune of Alton Ellis’ “What Does It Take (To Win Your Love),” this Sakana showcase is guaranteed to inspire you to see the mountain in a whole new way.
