One word to sum up the season:

Two riders to watch out for:
Two guys people might not know already that killed it were Ben Bilocq and Jake Olson-Elm. But, really, everyone had a good season.

Three obstacles or low points during the year:
One low point we had was our first trip to Flint Michigan, We got there and it was melting and we couldn’t find shit, but it all turned around the next day when it snowed 8 inches.
Our(Nick’s) lowest point was a drunken Nick letting it rip in the middle of the night and pissing all over his bed, pillow, and Jake Olson-Elm.

Four highlights from the year:
Our last trip to Quebec was incredibly productive! Darrell, Bennee, Laurent, Louif, Jake, Nick, and Desirre –  2 weeks, 2 hotel rooms, 2 filmers, 1 photog, and 1 van.
Hokkaido was a good time. Lots of pow, and we got to see most of Japan.
Plenty of good times in Whistler with Jan, Ben, Alex, Darrell, and friends.
The best times were probably snowboarding and not filming. A lot of the crew spent a great deal of time just riding Bear Mountain and enjoying snowboarding.

Five reasons why this movie will get the viewer stoked:
The rider list alone is enough to let your imagination go wild.
Just about everyone has full parts loaded with hammers. No part skippers!
There isn’t one person in the crew simply because they were sponsored in, the whole crew was picked regardless of sponsor backing.
No techno music.
This is a video about snowboarding and real personality, not about fancy filming, forced feelings, or bad acting.
