Whilst it was arguably his parts in Think Thank‘s ‘Thanks Brain‘ and ‘Stack Footy‘ that shot Scott Stevens to the insane level of fame and universal acclaim that he occupies within the snowboard universe these days, it was his segment in 2006’s ‘Patchwork Patterns‘ that made the world sit up and take notice.
Style, board control and a flair for spotting the new and never-been-dones are what makes this stand out even today
Style, board control and a flair for spotting the new and never-been-dones are what makes this stand out even today – it may look relatively tame compared to his opener from DOA or first first foray with the Videograss crew, but comparing this against himself is unfair.
Instead, see how it stacks up against most one minute forty five clips you see dropped online today and then you’ll realise the genius of Scott Stevens: this was amazing, but he was only warming up…
The handrails, the flip in-flip out combos, the beginnings of the one footed magic, this is magical, nay legendary stuff from one of the most important riders today. Feast your eyes.
Psssst. For a cheeky look at the full film, head over here.
