“Weird and Bitchin” – Lib Tech Snowboards webisode from the Holy Bowly event in Japan

Following on from the first Holy Bowly video, Mervin Manufacturing (the factory behind Lib Tech and Gnu Snowboards) have just dropped their own fun-filled bowl edit as part of their new “Weird and Bitchin” web series.

As the guys behind wavy edges and banana-shaped snowboards, it’s no surprise that Mervin chose to sponsor an event that thinks outside the box. As event mastermind Krush Kulesza puts it:

It’s an international gathering of creativity and flow that brings all ages, styles and abilities together in a progressive freestyle evolution; a pursuit of constant radness that makes you question the current state of Olympic training facilities across the world. We call it: Holy Bowly.

That worthy voiceover, plus the presence of 90’s megastar Jamie Lynn (smoking some kind of sparkler) and a retro punk soundtrack lends this edit a decidedly retro feel. I mean, check this out for comparison (skip to 1.35):

That’s not necessarily a bad thing – maybe Olympic-era snowboarding needs to recapture a bit of that 90’s magic?
