UPDATE: That’s it, that’s all, it’s over and done with. The winner of the snowboard movie world cup is The Art Of Flight. AOF received the most votes of any film throughout the whole competition, hats off to ya Travis.
It’s day whothefuckevenknowsanymore of lockdown and everyone’s been spending their time in different ways. Here at Whitelines we’ve been falling down the rabbit hole investigating increasingly obscure genres of pornography, staring directly at the sun, and running the Snowboard Movie World Cup. 32 shred movies donned their gloves and stepped into the ring to square up and be in with the chance of being crowned ‘The Best Snowboard Movie of All-Time’. Films from all era’s of snowboarding were submitted, and the bracket was drawn up. We left the voting to you, the people, the community, the beating heart of the industry and your voices were heard. The final comes down to a battle of the titan. Yep, it’s your boy Travis vs …Travis. That’s It, That’s All goes toe to toe with The Art Of Flight.
Before any of you keyboard warriors start foaming at the mouth because you don’t agree with this, remember that these are all opinions, and you’re allowed to have different ones. You won’t get a one way ticket to a North Korean ‘holiday camp’ through your letterbox if you disagree. We’re not throwing down the gauntlet and saying that we’re completely, utterly and incontestably correct in our choices, but also… we’re totally saying that. We’re not some hippy mother telling all of her 14 weird children that they’re special in their own way. Some things are better than others, capiche?
“But has your Auntie Pat heard of it? Probably not, unless your Auntie Pat is actually a cross-dressing Pat Bridges”
We know we haven’t included every snowboard movie ever made, we went with the ones you overwhelmingly nominated before the draw was made. And anyway, who gives a fuck? If you prefer a different shred film, then that’s the best one ever, too. There are so many more important things to be stressing about right now… like the fact that ‘the leader of the free world’ wants people to shoot up cleaning products.
