Your brain has two sides or hemispheres if you will with the left housing the analytical thought process and the right being random. Every person shares attributes from either side of their brain but usually one side is slightly more dominant and makes up a majority of your personal thought processes. The Think Thank crew is known for their creative nature in how they film their video’s and because of that this year they dropped Right Brain Left Brain their double feature movie. The purpose of the double feature was to show which of their riders were either on the right or left side of their brain. Here’s a look at what’s going down in this flick.
For those that are a bit more creative there’s the Right Brain DVD. The riders on this disk are Scott Stevens, Austin Hironaka, Chris Beresford, Chris Brewester, Jesse Burtner, Gus Engle, Nick Visconti, Matt Edgers, Pat Milbery, and Austen Granger. These are the riders that take a slightly different approach to features and the terrain put in front of them. Nick Visconti has the opener and dear god does he destroy his part. Jib trickery that was so next level words honestly can not describe what he does. All I can say is he’s an artist and snowboarding is his outlet. Burtner and Stevens once again prove that they can snowboard better with one foot strapped in than we can with two. Milberry for being an old man actually put together a more solid part than he has in the past as well.
For those that like to think about how they’re going to hit a feature and break down their riding into segments there’s the Left Brain. This disc has riders Jason Robinson, Ben Bogart, Jess Kimura, Tim Eddy, Sean Genovese, Chris Larson, Blair Habenicht, Andre Spinelli, and Sam Hulbert. This disk has a bit more pow riding in it due to Blair Habenicht and it’s solid. Sean Genovese does really big bomb drops and jibs his face off. The stand out is Jess Kimura this girl is pushing women’s snowboarding to the absolute next level. In the bonus section there’s a 5 minute slam segment she has more than half of the shots in it.
Over all the movie is highly creative and the fact that if a riders main part was on say Right Brain he’d guest appear in the Left Brain disc and vice versa works to their advantage. It’s like a double dose of riders. Think Thank knows how to get creative and there’s plenty of that in this flick. The bonus features are the typical slams section, skating with Scotty Stevens, and some other things. If running time is your thing each disc is about 30 minutes long so that’s an hour of shred right there.
