    Most watchable snowboard video ??


    This is an oldie but a goodie. Sometimes when I am feeling blue I watch this clip. I can watch it over and over. The out-of-controlness, the stunningness of the air and the relative shortness of it suits my ADD/ADHD/SHITFORBRAINS attention span.
    I certainly hope the rider was ok. Don't know the rider and no info on the clip.
    His hitting the lip was the ultimate act of optimism. Somehow makes me happy.

    Anyone else ??

    I would like to see your point of view but I can't get my head that far up your ass.

    Correct.

    FWIW, the most watchable snowboard video for me is Optimistic by Absinthe.

    TB4 or TB5. Go watch Tom Burt, Jim Rippey, and Noah Salasnek slay AK...waaay before it was cool.
    Anything Absinthe does is pretty solid too, as is anything Travis Rice touches.

    edit: fast forward a couple years and I reckon "Deeper" will get a nod. Jones is nasty!

    Yes sir. Great film. I too have to give a nod to what Absinthe puts out.

    and also this

    Another great and totally watchable film is called "Lines", produced by Axel Paulporte and Justin Hostinek (from Absinthe). It basically documents the history of big mountain riding in AK and is a great film.

    Like dRider, I too cannot wait for "Deeper" to come out. Should be down right ground breaking.

    Some other films I really used to like to watch were the films put out by Robot Food a few years ago. They were always fun to watch and funny at times.

    Any one ever see "Bikecar"? That one looked awesome, if only from a novelty stand point. I never got a chance to see it.

    x2. Old school Standard stuff is killer. Back when Rippey was at the top of his game...nasty.

    All time most watchable for me would probably be TB10 Optigrab, Whiskey 2(which barely qualifies as a snowboard video) or Absinthe's Transcendence.

    I haven't seen too many shred flicks in the last few years but the ones I have seen haven't impressed me. W/ the exception of course of That's It That's All.

    Always had a soft spot for TB8, all those pillows in Whistler....mmmm; but really nothing beats Plake on a board in BoA.

    Damn...don't know why I didn't mention that one earlier. Its been a while since I've seen it, that's probably why. But a great film regardless. That got me thinking too about Volcolm's "Escramble". I really like that one, kinda far out there, but a ton of good riders in that flick.

    that's it, that's all is mighty entertaining. pretty good snowboarding, cool nature shots and pretty sweet cinematography.

    Also, any jeremy jones (the big mountain rider, not the newschool jibmaster) segment always makes for some good watching.

    Uhh.......That's it That's All.......Maybe? Arguably the best production and editing of any ski/snowboard movie ever made (Sorry TGR).

    Go with the Blu-Ray!

    Another vote for Lame. But, 99 Words for Snow is pretty sweet too, and it was free.
