Our esteemed editor in chief Ed got an email recently from a reader which read:
As you’re now adopting the BuzzFeed style “list journalism” format, it’s exposed me to some of the sport’s history that I wouldn’t have known, in particular, video parts. I’m 29 and it’s only the last year or so that I’ve purchased the latest films from Absinthe/Burton/Standard etc. I usually just watch whatever teaser was online.
So with that in mind, and off the back of 1) the discussions around this year’s releases and 2) the “greatest method”/”craziest tricks” etc. articles… if you were going to put together a shred flick retrospective of the last 10/20 years, which rider/video parts would you put together to create the ultimate snowboarding movie?
PS. Is it winter yet?!
This inevitably sparked a big ol’ debate in the office, and safe to say not much more work was done that day. But while we couldn’t agree on a final all-time list, there were a few that all of us thought should be in there.
But before we could pull together as something like this, we thought we needed your input too. Here (in no particular order) is our list so far – what would you add? Please let us know in the comments!
