The never-ending stream of snowboard teasers is still flowing, and this week we were bombarded by Nike, Roxy, and Quiksilver with their very different releases of trailers that collectively had us shaking in our boots. If these edits don’t motivate you to go pull on your outerwear and run around the house, we don’t know what will.
“Nike Snowboarding Project,” Nike Snow: Nike has upped the ante as usual with their 2012 “Nike Snowboarding Project,” which will include three different chapters of edits, with each chapter worked on by different filmmakers and featuring different heavy-hitting snowboarders. Filmmakers Joe Carlino (Nike Action), Brad Kremer (Burton and Mack Dawg), and Justin Hostynek (Absinthe Films) worked on the first chapter, which is being released Oct. 16. The teaser below is a little preview to all three perspectives and provides a glimpse of what each filmmaker was working with. They’ve covered all their bases with riders slaying the backcountry, taking over terrain parks, and charging the streets. All together the project features riders Johnnie Paxson, Jess Kimura, Halldor Helgason, Justin Bennee, Jed Anderson, Sage Kotsenburg, Louie Vito, Gjermund Braaten, Jamie Nicholls, Danny Kass, Ethan Morgan, Jan Scherrer, Peetu Piiroinen, Austin Smith, Gigi Ruf, Nicolas Muller, Danny Kass, and Eric Jackson. A little bit of a mouthful, wouldn’t you say?
“Wanderlust,” Roxy Snowboarding/Peepshow Films: Roxy and Peepshow have joined lady forces and created one hell of a chick flick. The handful of rippers in “Wanderlust” provides us with so many dynamic and different riding skills that when smashed together, it creates a ridiculous and amazing ball of shredding. Peepshow is known for technical and stylish urban riding while Roxy’s team gets us in the halfpipe, park, and big mountain riding. “Wanderlust” looks to highlight all sides of women’s snowboarding as well as offer a simple vibe of fun and camaraderie. It features riders Torah Bright, Erin Comstock, Robin Van Gyn, Corinne Pasela, Joanie Robichaud, Danyale Patterson, Ty Walker, and Kjersti Buaas.
“Quiksilver Team Montage,” Quiksilver Snowboarding: Although this isn’t technically a teaser, per say, it still got us as giddy as a 15-year-old girl ogling Justin Bieber. Riders Bryan Fox, Will Lavigne, Travis Rice, Danimals, Johnny Brady, Ted Borland, Alex Beebe, Matt Belzile, and Jake Olson-Elm get together in this team montage, get after it, and paint a perfect snowboarding picture with their different styles and abilities. Urban, big mountain, parks–you name it, and they’ve got it.
