Riders Poll 16: Video and Online Video Of The Year
Video Of The Year went to the Drink Water crew for Pathology, which has some of the traditional spins and flips you’re used to seeing in a snowboard movie, but mostly focuses on riders like Austin Smith, Bryan Fox, and Tim Eddy shredding pow and keeping it fun. Traditionally, movies with the most progressive riding have won this category, including The Art Of Flight in 2012 and Déjà vu, last year. One of the main contenders for the win this year was Pat Moore’s Mr. Plant, which didn’t make the final three nominee cut. Even the Smith was surprised by the win, saying that the crew definitely didn’t set out to make movie of the year.
In the Online Video Project Of The Year category, The Manboys took the win. This is one of the most competitive categories with projects like Burton Presents and Rome’s Find Snowboarding on the original voting list for riders. While a range of projects made the final three nominee list, including the adidas Nomad series and Jon Stark’s Chikenmeat, the riders ultimately settled on The Manboys.
