7 Female Snowboarders, 7 Locations, 1 Film you Can’t Miss

Raise those praise hands, it’s finally September, and that means two things: It’s no longer socially unacceptable to pumpkin-spice your drinks, and it’s the month a couple of rad films are premiering. We’re especially looking forward to Runway Films’ "Full Moon." (Oh, and  Tight Loose, but we've talked about that plenty.)

The trailer for "Full Moon" came out a couple days ago, and our bellies are now on fire. Seven female snowboarding legends — Annie Boulanger, Robin Van Gyn, Marie France Roy, Helen Schettini, Leanne Pelosi, Hana Beaman and Jamie Anderson — have dedicated the past two years to the project, traveling everywhere from Canada and Alaska to Italy to pay tribute to their influencers and push the progression of women’s riding.

The Full Moon crew make clear their film’s not a history of women’s snowboarding. What it is, is a collection of stories about who the riders were inspired by back in the day that help preserve the female snowboarding heritage. The crew’s goals? To empower people to follow their passion for the outdoors.

I’ll leave you with some wise words by Pelosi, one of the most well-rounded professional snowboarders worldwide: “We are all connected at an arm’s reach, and there is a reason why we should see where we came from and on to where we are headed. It’s vital to keep the true story of snowboarding alive through visuals like interviews and real video documentation.”

Trevor Kennison Returns to the Backcountry

If there was one phrase to describe Trevor Kennison, it would be ‘doesn’t give up.’ Paralyzed from the waist down in a snowboard accident while riding Vail Pass, Kennsion didn’t think he’d get to experience snowsports again. After rehabbing at Craig Hospital, his sister convinced him to give sit-skiing a try. Since then, Kennison has made waves in the ski community as not only an incredible athlete, but a true bright spot in the sport. Kennison’s unbeatable style and attitude caught the eye

The Spotheads Boys Throw Down in Latest Film

We’ve found the thing you didn’t know you were looking for: twenty whole minutes of good old fashioned urban snowboarding. The boys at Spotheads have provided us with the goods and boy, do they provide. Top notch street riding mixed in with a healthy dose of carnage all cooked together with friendship make this film everything a snowboard film should be. Big kudos to these boys for throwing down and holding nothing back for our entertainment even if it meant a couple face-to-concrete impacts
