Although we've yet to see his full part in this season's People Films movie, Elias Elhardt's part in the Rip Curl movie was easily one of the best parts we saw last year. Now it could just be that he always looks totally stoked to be riding, or maybe it's his incredible flow in powder, but something about the way he rides just gives you that urge to go snowboarding. Watch his Rip Curl/People part and tell us if you disagree.

Here's some B footage from that People Films part and once again it's just over two minutes of fun powder slashes, heavy backcountry tricks and uses a feel good, upbeat tune. In an internet-driven climate where more overly-serious edits/parts drop than we can keep track of, riders like this really stand out in our eyes. In short: we need more riders like Elias.
