“Alessio” is a short film about Alessio Stillrich by Markus Rydberg from West Coast Visuals. In January 2018 Alessio smashed his fibula and tibia into pieces at Cape Point in South Africa but the 25 year-old is back in old form or even better. In this film he talks about his strong connection to South Africa, the spots and his sponsor change. Alessio lands brilliant Double Forwards, hits the lips and nails big air moves just two years after his injury.
Markus followed Alessio last winter to Scarborough, Witsands and Sunset and edited a brilliant short film.
