I don't really equate that video to street skating; in my mind, that video would be more comparable to watching a 50min. video of no one but Rodney Mullen. Are the tricks unique and difficult? Yes. But, does it get repetitious and boring? Double yes.
I think most cross discipline riders you see competing or filming lots of street style edits in either are an example of how you naturally get street skaters picking up snowboarding and gravitating toward street stuff rather than vert or slopestyle. Most of the ThirtyTwo team riders are very competent skaters and could probably skate for the Etnies brand, too. I know JP and Simon do some back country stuff, but they're really known for their street edits and riding.

Then you have guys like Shaun White who is cross disciplined agian, but vert in both.

Japan has a very strong street skating scene that generates a lot of street style riders, hence the abundance of butterers that come from Japan. Japan, in general, has a very strong snowboard culture, but their freestyle culture is almost predominantly street skaters who crossed over.

So while buttering might not be the same as street skating, it seems thats just what street skaters gravitate towards when they cross over. That and shooting street parts.

jdang307 Is it blasphemous for me to say I find most snowboard videos boring? The last big movie before art of flight I fell asleep a few minutes in. I think it all gets repetitive no matter what

jimster716 I wanted to commit seppuku...if I had to watch all 50 minutes I'd probably go Battle Royale on everyone within cutting distance.

The result street snowboarding and consequently, buttering, isn't nearly as popular. If you ask me, the Japanese area bit too obssessed with ground work. I have a friend who lived in Japan and became obssessed with their culture - a real otaku or whatever they call themselves - and I constantly am forced to watch the newest buttering edit. I'm also stuck buttering the greens half the day, too. Boring.

SNOWBOARD MASTER OF GROUND 1-2 ( butter , flatland , flateos ) - YouTube
Anyone else notice there's like three sequences that are exactly the same between both this video and the one in the op?

jyuen why so much hate for the butters?
i think these are pretty sick

Donutz What bugs me about these types of videos is the excessive cutting. You pretty much never get to actually see anyone actually do an actual trick. Four or five cuts in a single MFM butter, you kind of wonder how many takes that took.

trevk#07 Too... much... butter...

I didn't think it was possible during a video about snowboarding but I got bored also...
