Kevin Jones was back in Mammoth this weekend and all was right again with the world. On Saturday night, crowds descended into the village at Mammoth to see Kevolution , the Billabong film documenting the career and life of professional snowboarder KJ. Yet another offering from documentary filmmaker Dave Seoane, Kevolution not only summarizes the gigantic snowboard career of Kevin, it also perfectly captures his ridiculous humor. The movie included compilations of some of his twenty video parts, new footage from last winter, and some, uhhh, fake kayaking and air guitaring.
Kevin spoke for a few minutes to introduce the movie and crack a few jokes. The afterparty was at Laka Nuki and every shred from Portland, to Tahoe, to Mammoth squeezed into the bar. The premiere conicided with the first stop of the Forum YoungBlood Series and the opening of the Superpipe. The Billabong bus will be touring and premiering Kevolution across America.
