This video comes before almost everything snowboarding that is today.
Before triple corks, double corks, or even corks in general.
Before the internet, iphones, mp3s and DVDs.
It came before Torah Bright, but definitely not Betty White.
This video came before Banana Tech, Slime Walls, and Magnetraction.
It even came before baggy pants and wides stances.
This video came from the time when it wasn’t about going pro,
or calling everyone “bra”, “bru” or “bro”.
When 360′s were huge, and backflips well, not so cool.
This was a time when half pipes weren’t perfect,
and all cliffs were rad.
It was a simpler day, there were no gapers, no haters, they all just strapped in.
These times were fun and the guys were all right.
But months later was born our new friend Shaun White…
To the good ol’ days and the pioneers of snowboarding, we salute you!
