Late last year K2 Snowboards dropped their banger Big Band, an ode to the teamwork and passion it takes to create a snowboard movie. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a movie, there’s a helluva lot of moving cogs that have to be perfectly oiled to allow such a huge machine to move seamlessly.
“It takes a BIG BAND to play the song, and we’re happy to have recorded that hit single”
“It takes a lot of people playing their part juust right to put together a snowboard film. From the brains that design the boards, the hands that build them, the riders that test them, and the filmmakers that document the riding. It takes a BIG BAND to play the song, and we’re happy to have recorded that hit single.”
We loved Big Band, and you did too, the crowd brayed and cried out for an encore. So, K2 said, “Ask and ye shall receive” and dropped this extended play with Mark Wilson and Jonas Harris going hell for leather in Minnesota and Colorado.
“It’s snowboarding for snowboarders, no winches or bungees, just raw talent”
Last season Mark and Seamus hit the road early to film for X Games Real Snow, chasing the flurries across Minnesota and Colorado, and meeting up to shake off the cobwebs with young gun Jonas Harris. If for some reason you haven’t already seen Mark’s Real Snow entry, now’s the time. It’s snowboarding for snowboarders, no winches or bungees, just raw talent, creativity and a bit of gravity to lend a helping hand.
