God that early craig kelley backcountry riding is just mind blowing.

Also, does it bug anyone else that Jason Lee narrates stuff like this, all while being a scientologist? It kind of goes against the code of everything the video and lifestyle stands for...

can u imagine how much harder it was to ride those very early boards, but how raw and underground it was also. i do believe every snowboarder SHOULD be made to watch this video. you should really know the history of the sports you love.

I started riding in 85 in Russia. Just a handful of us kids really. For a few years we made our own snurfies and skiboards, modeled them after pictures we saw in bootleg mags. Rode them like we would a skateboard. The first legit board I got was in 88 or 89 I think. It was an 87 Elite and I don't remember ever being happier to own anything in my life. I remember ski patrol chasing us all over the mountain, local cops knew us all by name and would call our parents, threaten to put us in juvies. Wow, quite a memory lane trip.

Great movie - thanks for sharing. You really get a feel for the "soul" of snowboarding and why it's drawn so many people in.

My wife and I were in Breck in '06 and went to see First Descent at the Speakeasy one night which is this tiny little theater in the basement of The Peak School. Watching the movie with maybe 20 other snowboarders was really neat and had a cool vibe to it. The dueling T. Rice and Terje scenes from First Descent are top notch and worth the price to rent it.

Thumbs up

Finally got a chance to finish watching this; great film!

It's clear to me now that all of us have in common an appreciation for the feeling of snowboarding. It's a sensation like no other. It's like flying!

Loved the movie, but it left me wanting a little more.

I wonder if it was just me but it seemed to be more a story about snowboarding competitions/sponsorship/corporate successes, rather than a history of how snowboarding actually progressed from a design/technique/tricks/fashion point of view.

Rather than just covering Burton vs Sims, what about some of the other manufacturers, what did they bring to the table etc?

Either way it was a cool doco
