Skip to 2:40 to get to the Finger huckfest.
Check out the “1st successful huck of the Fingers on a Snowboard.” It went down in 1991 and it was our boy Shaun Farmer (who we saw at Squaw today) who pulled it off.
Look how fat the Fingers were in 1991! And no one was hitting them!! Farmer hits the Ring Finger and greases it perfectly. His buddy lands right in his bomb hole and almost suffocates. Crazy powder day at Squaw...just like they all are!
This movie is called Critical Condition and was made by Fall Line Films in 1991.
This is how the back of the VHS reads:
“In a world of deception, full of Milli Vanillis, Vanilla Ices and other fruit-flavored frauds, we at Fall-Line Films figured it was time to give the snowboarding public the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We’ve gone deep into the lives of snowboarding’s true rippers to see what scares, thrills and makes them laugh. We’re not going to cheat the public into believing in something that’s not. This is the whole story: highs and lows, landings and crashes, the most spectacular display of snowboarding ever captured on film.” – Fall Line Films
How 1990s is that description. Remember Milli Vanilli? The ‘90s were sweet!
