Check out this sweet short from Tommy Penick and Romi Kristl.

Romi Kristl hasn’t followed the path most are shoved into. Starting in the beginning of high school, Romi began pursuing his dreams in snowboarding aggressively; by homeschooling himself and living at his brother’s house at Squaw Valley, Romi was able to dedicate his life to his passions. Now, Romi is enrolled as an engineering student, but still manages to maintain an international travel schedule during the winter.
