Golly, It’s A Motion Picture

Oh yes, the dirt is fresh and films are dropping! After being dormant for the last 6-8 month, actually not dormant just riding snowboards, not mountainboards, the mountainboards have been pulled out and trips are being planned. I spoke with MBS Founder/Team Manager, Jason Lee over on Friday night over a few pints about the likelihood of a team road trip team amid the recession. What i got for an answer was surprising, “Yes, there will be a trip, only this year it will be late summer fall”.

Traditionally, One 5 Media and MBS kick off the season with a road trip to begin filming and get a lot of bails out of the way. 2007 it was the Roadkill trip to Vegas, 2008 it was Albuquerque, 2009 TBD but I’m pulling for NoCal.

Traveling is my favorite part about mountainboarding, it’s that drive to explore the unknown, to find that perfect terrain and share it with your friends. I just watched the new BFC flick, Something Else and they have done quite a bit of traveling themselves over the last year, the park at Winterberg Germany, Wanyi Park Belgium, France, UK, and i’m sure there is more. Something Else takes a look at the European mountainboard scene through the eyes of Jack Johnston, with a handful of rider interviews, contest shots and a bunch of progressive tricks, it left me want to more. Here a look at BFC’s Something Else.

Our boys from the DSA, have been stacking footy for the last year or so for their first full length video, which is supposed to drop in June. I must say, i have some high expectations for the video, with the likes of Halston Rhodes, Mason Moore, Van Dewitt, Casey Thomas and the rest of the Salt Lake City crew, these guys have always been a pleasure to ride with and always bring that heavy style into all their riding. Here is the teaser for Let it Happen.

    “Let IT Happen” represents two years of DSA video shot in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Nevada. With the enfisis on finding new and innovative locations and pushing our skills with a big bag of new tricks. Team DSA brakes out of the “big air” mold of other videos and shows you what else is possible on all terrain board.
