Can't wait to see this one... I'm on my phone now so it will have to wait till I get home.

Just reading a couple of these comments brings me back..

I remember the days when you couldn't ride at the mountains. We were cutting trails in the woods and building "parks" on the sledding hills lol... Everything was directional, dove tails were the heat.. That was back in '87 ish lol

Its incredible, how little knowlege dripped in here back in 1992. Went to a shop then to get a snowboard, no idea what, only precondition was that its one where you can wear those soft boots. The guy in the shop: What size of ski do you ride? - 170cm - Ok, this might work.
And he gave me a F2 160cm.
Well, I didn't worked out very well

I watched some of the powder and rail episodes recommended by simonB and was blown away with how they made me feel. That's what the nostalgic footage does for me, makes me so grateful the sport is where it is today and appreciative of all the folks that made it possible for me to have such a rad lifestyle. Now if only I could find a way to travel and ride 24/7!!! Lottery maybe...I doubt talent is gonna pull it off for this guy

Only watched the first part, but being from Muskegon MI the beginning is pretty well known. I started on a Brunswick Snurfer that my dad had from when he was a kid and my first snowboard was that Burton Backhill that Jake was holding with rubber straps for bindings. Have video of me riding it on the dunes of Lake Michigan from about 22 years ago or so. Hope to watch the rest of the movie, thanks for the link.

Is it covering anything not already done in Let It Ride and First Descent? Will still watch it either way but just curious, sounds like it's the same thing over again (which was excellent, granted)
