New and the Not So New
Within the action sports world it has become imperative to get “the Edit” out as quick as possible, with new 2 min edits popping up every day, even twice a day….! Showing you what your hero snowboard pro, or any other ripper with a camera is up to. New has become so last week.
Every day I hear, “did you see the new RK1 edit…?” or “Stale just won the Willie Wonka Open in Lapland, with a quadruple under-flip to down flat down, 270 out. I was awesoooome…! Did you see the footage.?” And as a connoisseur of everything snowboarding I usually reply, “I did, but I think he bobbled the landing and McMorris should have won”
But is there too much…? I will admit that all the footage is inspiring and contributing to the light-speed advancement of the sport, but I do miss the good ol’ days when you waited until November when all last seasons footage had been edited and packaged to video or DVD. You’d heard rumor of tricks, but wouldn’t believe it till you’d seen it on your Sony Trinitron flat-screen TV (and back then, it really was the just the screen that was flat, the back of the TV was the size of a small cow)
But on the other hand, riders today can see the new tricks and the best in the business everyday, and copy and compare, and be inspired to push their own riding daily, and let everyone out there see what they can do on a snowboard.
Below are a hand full of our edits, all conveniently put in one place. New and Not So New. I will also try and find older GACP videos and post them here. Enjoy
