Riders Poll 15: Video Of The Year

Video Of The Year is a big one because it’s not about a single person or achievement. It’s the result of a group effort: riders, filmers, and editors. See who the pros thought put out the best video of 2013.

Déjà Vu

Prologue: Part 1

Arguably Will Lavigne’s sickest part ever for the opener, Louif Paradis’ Video Part Of The Year nominated ender, Frank April’s boarding and antics to Boss’ “I Don’t Give A Fuck”, the reuniting of an old Quebecois crew of friends distracted for years by their different sponsors needs. Hayden Rensch does a sick job with the filming and editing.

Jake Blauvelt's Naturally

This movie could have easily been called “Zen And The Art Of The Frontside Seven,” because it’s full of insight from Blauvelt to compliment the gnarly natural terrain they’re riding. Of course he’s got help from his friends Kazu Kokubo, Shayne Pospisil, Eric Jackson, and Fredi Kalbermatten. Blauvelt proves he is on another level with that double flip in Riksgransen, Sweden, where Ingemar did the air.

Never Not

Never Not Part 2

Never Not is Nike’s first snowboard video and they got the right people to do it for them. Part 2 (above) made by Per-Hampus Stalhandske explores snowboarding culture in a rad scheme, and Part 1 made by Joe Carlino is everything you would want from a snowboard video with sick riding, music, and editing. Put them both together and it’s a hell of a duo.
