The 14th Annual Riders Poll Nominees

Video of the year:

1. Absinthe’s Resonance Absinthe yet again proved that they know how to make a killer snowboard video with Resonance. But then again, with riders like Gigi Ruf, Lucas DeBari, Nicolas Muller, Bode Merrill, and many more, how could you not expect this video to kill it.

2. Burton’s 13 Burton went all out with their video 13. Awesome production, awesome riding, when you put those two things together you get an awesome video. And that’s just what 13 is. Standout parts from Mikkel Bang, Jeremy Jones, Jussi Oksanen, and Mikey Rencz.

3. Videograss The Darkside


Videograss‘s video, The Darkside isn’t high production. It’s just a normal snowboard video. But the snowboarding in it isn’t normal. It’s raw, it’s in your face, and it’s sick as hell. With standout parts from Jake OE, Nick Dirks, Chris Grenier, and Joe Sexton, it will get you stoked to go snowboarding.

Online Video Project of the Year:

1. Salomon / Bonfire’s Team Vacation


Tanner Pendelton did an amazing job with these edits from the SalomonBonfire camp. The premise of Team Vacation was that the Salomon and Bonfire trams were going to drive around in a RV, hit awesome spots, stoke out kids, and just have a killer time. Judging by these edits they did just that. This edit right here is from the tour’s trip to Japan. It has a real Robot Food feel to it. It rules.

2. John and Eric Jackson’s Brothers on the Run Could you imagine traveling on a 15,000 mile journey in an RV all while snowboarding crazy mountains? Well that’s exactly what John and Eric Jackson did last winter, and they lived to tell about it.

3. Cooking With Gas There was just something a little bit different about Eero Ettala and Heikki Sorsa‘s Cooking With Gas webisodes. Maybe it was the fact they didn’t fill them with filler tricks, or maybe it was the fact that there wasn’t too much talking in them. Whatever it was, it worked becasue they kicked ass. Also featured in this years 14 annual Riders Poll presented by New Era are:

Standout Of The Year

Brandon Cocard- Big ass 50-50 from his part in Absinthe’s Resonance Jeremy Jones and the Further crew– hiking and riding the heaviest lines. No one rides the stuff that these guys ride.
