Supporting local crews helps foster a solid shred scene, SixEleven is the one local company I have no problem backing because they get shit done and the video doesn’t look like it was filmed off an Iphone or with your dads oldschool VHS camcorder. This past weekend I was able to hang out with the whole crew in Breckenridge for their final premiere of the year and Steven Waters gave me a personal copy. So what is this movie all about?
It’s about what snowboarding should always be… Fun! Whether they’re down in Silverton being dragged around behind a truck or hitting urban jibs in Denver you notice right away they’re all smiling and having fun. The simple beauty of this flick is that it doesn’t just shove a group of riders in no particular order on film, it builds on everyone similar to how the old Robot Food flicks were in that pseudo-shred documentary style.
Double chucking seems to be the one thing any movie that’s going to get noticed has to have in this season. Scott See in my opinion has one of the smoothest doubles in snowboarding right now and for his first year filming he might not have gotten tons of shot but the double on jump three on Keystones big line showcases that. During the Silverton segment you also see more flip trickery that’s styled out and solid. The Superpark segment has some ungodly huge jumps and even Nick Visconti from Tahoe Dangerzone makes a guest appearance. The urban Denver stuff most notably the shots from under the bridge are some banger sequences.
Over all it’s got what any good movie should have a solid crew, good filming, some great locations that haven’t been blown out yet, and it’s fun. As you’re reading this they’ve started filming for next seasons flick and with the crew establishing itself further I hope to see some bigger hammers.
