by Phil Smith |

Sandbox Team riders Dylan Miller, Steffen Vollert and Alex Graydon along with Antoine Allaux spent several weeks exploring the wakeboard scene in Argentina earlier this year. On their journey, the four visited several of the top wake parks in the region discovering a thriving wake scene and soaking up the local culture.

It was a team effort filming during the trip, but X-Games Real Wake medalist and mastermind Steffen Vollert completed the well crafted edit. Sandbox is proud to have supported such a great trip and project. Watch it below!

In the interview, she explains why she's been off the radar lately, focussing on studying extra hard so she can graduate early and have a snowboard focussed season in the upcoming winter. Kayli also spends some of her summer months shredding the Blackcomb glacier, chilling at the lake and playing frolf in our very own backyard - Whistler.
