Hondo’s Weekly Roundup 11/17

This week felt like the week that the 2012 – 2013 season started. There were a ton of resort opening day edits. While those are all cool and all, there were also a ton of other sick online videos that came out that might have slipped through the cracks. These are my top five web videos for this week…

1. Videograss’s Mt.Baker Film Festival Entry

The VG Enlighten crew spent a ton of time last year in the Northwest shredding pow. This video, made by Gary Milton shows exactly that. It features riding from Danny Larsen, Matt Belzile, Patrick McCarthy, Shaun Mckay, Jake Kuzyk, Alex Cantin, Eero Niemela, Bryan Fox, Benji Ritchie, Dustin Craven, and Will Jackways. Pow rules, and these guys for sure know this. You can pick up Enlighten right HERE

2. Kielbasa del Scorch

The Fairgounds Swingers Club don’t give a shit about anything, especially if you like this edit or not. The East Coast rules, and it looks like it’s off to a good season over there. Kielbasa de Scorch has riding from Cole St. Martin, Eugene Stancato, Skyler Brent, Brett Stewart, and a bunch of other dudes.

3. Too Hard

Too Hard is the brainchild of Danyale Patterson. It’s an all girls video that will make you laugh, in a good way. It’s funny and the riding is sick. There’s also good music and funny editing. I’m backing it. The chicks riding in it are Marie Hucal, Fancy Rutherford, Jessie Huege, Darrah Reid-McLean, Desiree Melancon, Joanie Robichaud, Joelle "JJ" Juchli, Gabby Maiden, Madison Blackley, Mary Rand, Taylor Elliot, Alice Gorton, Marie-Andree Racine, Gillian Andrewshenko, Vanessa Moore, Sara Berdayes, Luci Imbach, and Alexa McCarty.

4. Redbull’s The Athlete Machine

While this video doesn’t actually have any snowboarding in it, it does have Pat Moore getting into a helicopter pretending like he’s going to go snowboarding. So that’s cool. Pat had the easiest job in a video that got 6,000,000 youtube views. Is Redbull trying to say snowboarders are lazy? Nah, I doubt it.

While this video didn’t come out this week, it was the first time I saw it. It was also Pat’s birthday this week, happy birthday Pat. Now before you say anything bad about this video you have to watch it and realize how insane it really is. Look at all the action that’s happening. Also, look at how fast that girl can do hurdles. Holy crap she’s fast…

5. Brendan Gerard‘s 2011-2012 Full Part

Holy shit did this part drop some fire this week. In a week where a bunch of good edits came out, this one for sure took the cake. Brendan charges on his snowboard, and his riding is different and unique. It’s refreshing to see, and I for one can’t wait to see what he does this winter.
