Volcom just released what Snowboarder magazine is calling "the most anticipated" episode from Volcom's series of 10 videos made by individual snowboarders. Dubbed the "Volcom #IP2 Part," the video features rider Dan Brisse, who ESPN describes as someone whose "sanity is often in question because of his crazy video parts." As for the new video, which can be accessed by clicking here or clicking play below, Snowboarder magazine says "Brisse keeps the throttle open for four minutes of mayhem." Enjoy.
Chris Bradshaw and friends in "Feature Factory" from Bear Mountain: Just in time for Hot Dawgs and Handrails, the annual winter kick-off party at Bear Mountain in California, Bear team rider Chris Bradshaw's full part from "Feature Factory" has been released to the World Wide Web. He even lets fellow pros Scott Stevens, Forest Bailey, Jonah Owen, and Lucas Magoon share the spotlight in this edit as they all flip, spin, and slide on every feature imaginable in one of the most pristine parks around. Bradshaw continues to ride his home mountain with his usual flair and style--getting creative on even the smallest features. The full movie is set to premiere in Big Bear Saturday at the AV Nightclub.
Jed Anderson in "Jed in Full" from Nike and Salomon Snowboards: Holy urban snowboarding. This was an honest thought that went through my mind as I watched Jed Anderson's 2012 edit. No feature is too big, sketchy, or dangerous for this kid. Redirects galore, front boardslides for days, and wall rides that defy gravity--this part filmed by Joe Carlino and Tanner Pendleton shows off how much Anderson can do. Get inspired and watch the video below.
Seth Huot and Cody Beiersdorf in "IP2" from Volcom: Longtime shredder and video part extraordinaire Seth Huot pairs up with rookie rider Cody Beiersdorf in this episode of "IP2" (rather, Individually Produced Parts as they are made by the riders themselves). This edit is a nice little mix of bold, stylish backcountry riding and progressive, demanding street snowboarding. These two make sure to send it into every trick they attempt, and it seems to have paid off.
Pro Snowboarder Elena Hight has collaborated with Volcom to create her own signature line. Born in Hawaii and raised in South Lake Tahoe, California, she exudes a beach meets snow style that is both versatile and fashionable.
Elena commented on her creative process and individual style, "When I was working on creating this line, my inspiration came from creating clothes that were comfortable and easy to wear but still versatile and chic at the same time. My life is very spontaneous, so having clothes that work in every situation is key. I love being able to layer, dress clothes up or down."
The video below is a behind the scenes look at the photo shoot, where Elena talks more about her individual style.
Among mountains that are overrun by top notch terrain parks, Bear Mountain stands alone with its own swagger. Clayton Shoemaker leads the charge in building and designing its features. And let's just say this isn't his first rodeo. He's been a part of countless events such as Snowboarder's prestigious Superpark and all of the contests at Bear including Grenade Games and Hot Dawgs And Handrails. These aren't just any contests either. They are known for consistently providing the best jibs and setups around.
A few of Volcom's riders-- with a little swagger of their own-- challenged this monster of a park, and, well, rode the shit out of it. The video features Bear's first event Hot Dawgs and Handrails in September and documents the highlights from the duration of the season, with riders such as Daniel Brown, Dylan Alito, and Scott Blum.
A common trend among the snowboard film industry is the tendency to provide an inside look into the making of a movie. Rome Snowboards created a video blog showing different occurrences and tricks while making The Shred Remains, Teton Gravity Research and Jeremy Jones released edits entitled Further Unplugged to hype up Further--you get the drift.
Volcom has taken similar route in supporting their latest snowboard project, IP2. They are releasing a "Clip of the Day" that showcases their current team on the road, shooting for IP2, throwing down hammers, and giving a little insight on what goes into making a Volcom movie. Here is the latest clip featuring Zac Marben and Curtis Ciszek in Jackson Hole:
