Keeping the Stoke: More Shred flicks

Posted on Updated on

Hopefully you snow lovers have been out there preparing for winter. I’ve been doing some skating, working out and enjoying all the great snow porn out there.

If you didn’t make it to Jake Blauvelt’s new film premiere, Naturally here in Burlington on September 27th, you missed a showing of some amazing powder turns 2 years in the making (in part due to a shoulder injury). The film focused on Blauvelt’s back country riding mainly taking part in untracked British Columbia, while intertwining a story line on his road to recovery. A great documentary, it also introduces the snowboarder’s newly formed non-profit cause, Mountain Light Project which focuses on getting kids snowboarding who would not normally have the opportunity to do so.  Definitely worth a watch, check it out!

Another premiere is happening this Friday at UVM. Celebrating 10 years of shred, Think Thank Productions; Think Thank is Brain Dead and Having a Heart Attack is being shown at 7:30 (doors at 7). It is sure to be one of the best freestyle videos this year, so if you are interested, get on this opportunity. Below is a Facebook link to the event.

Welcome: Forest Bailey

Video Posted on Updated on

Figured your hump day could probably use a little pick me up. So for some pre-snow inspiration, heres a video of a local Vermonter killing it. Forest Bailey was just added to Adidas team, and will most certainly continue using his unique style  to do amazing things.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend and are going to be around the Burlington area, Jake Blauvelt’s new flick, Naturally will be premiering at the Roxy theatre downtown. Come have a good time and support another local Vermont rider!

Rome snowboards annual tent sale will also be this weekend. If you need anything, head to Waterbury for some good gear deals.

Have a good weekend!
