    oh my gosh, i’ve been looking forward to seeing this film for so long! definetly a fan of isenseven’s “let’s go get lost.”

    Whoa whaaaaaat! I’m so stoked for this film too! That’s It That’s All was a game-changer, but favourite film would have to be New Kids On The Twock, a MDP tape that set my brain on fire when I was a kid. It was a much-passed around VHS bootleg amongst my older brother’s crew, and I would stay up late watching it every chance I got, a window into an exciting world that got me stoked on life.

    Hands down “Transcendence.” By Absinthe Films in Switzerland. There is an epic scene that involves some serous shredding in a bunny suit, to the song “A Day in the Life” by The Beatles. A must see!

    “Clear Cut” by Treetop Productions – whistler, 1999

    At first I used to just play a lot of parties or snowboard video premieres around town and then Brad McGregor (Tree Top filmer and co-producer) came to me one day in a panic. He was like,”We’ve only got a week to put the music for our new video together!” So we just had some late nights with lots of ‘safety meetings’ and I put together the soundtrack for Clear Cut”

    “Love Hate”

  • Ty

    Let’s take it back, waaaay back!

    I’m gonna say, Riders On The Storm – because, for me, that’s where it all began. That opening scene where Shawn Farmer drops off that epic cliff as White Zombie rips in the background blew my 13 year old brain, and I guess you could say, it was all down hill after that.

    • Ty

      Woooo hoooo! Thanks man! I can hardly wait for Wednesday!

        have fuuun!

    • Adam Rabb Adam Rabb

  • Lucas Hellwig

    it’s definitively “LAME”

  • Craig Paterson

    DC Mtn Lab gotta love the run they build through the house, and hula hoop snowboarding? Awesome!

  • Drew

    Volcom’s The Garden (of course 😉

  • Liz Kovics

    “SINNERS” – its about all about the snow and soul of the backcountry, nothing more and nothing less.

  • http://www.rikardlilja.com Rikard

    Everything by Pierre Wikberg was really great both filming and snowboardingwise. Afterbang was groundbreaking both riding wise and filming/editing wise, Lame was even better looking but for me I guess he peaked with Afterlame, he moved away from the typical concept of rider-part-video and mixed it up a little. I think I’d say that Afterlame is my favourite, awesome snowboarding, great soundtrack, fantastic cinematography and genious editing!

  • Megan


  • Jordan

    MDP’s Picture This! is my fave! Art of Flight looks amazing though.

  • http://brandonbung.blogspot.com Brandon

    No doubt in my mind this movie raises the bar in terms of riding and cinematography in snowboarding. I haven’t been this stoked to see a shred flick since Eurogap 3. That was definitley a good one but my all time favourite is probably Trouble in Japan with the Analog crew

Hilarious Hack of the Day: The Anti-Selfie Stick


For anyone who finds selfie sticks too embarrassing to use in public, a guy named Mansun has come up with a solution. Made with two right hands ordered off Amazon (naturally), two original selfie sticks, and a shirt with extremely long sleeves, Mansun’s hack certainly addresses one problem. (Of course, he may have just created another).

Click here for a more detailed account of his process. More hilarious images below, love the shot of the shirt sleeves!
