Default We Ride - The Story of Snowboarding

For anyone that has a passion for this sport, this movie is a must see!

It chronicles snowboarding from its' birth, to the sims vs burton days and so on.

I got halfway thru and had to stop and post it!

Remember that feeling of "wanting to be a black belt" you got when you watched Daniel Larusso and Mr. Miyagi in Karate Kid!

I'm 35 and this movie has rekindled that feeling! Awesome!

It was amazing to learn the history of the sport I have fallen in live with.

Honestly if you call yourself a snowboarder you should watch this.

I thought it was cool how my view of snowboarding as snow surfing coincides with the origins of snowboarding. I mean, the similarities are pretty obvious, but the *spirit* of surfing was there, not just skateboarding.

Not that I surf, but I would if I lived near a place where the surf was good. Don't skateboard either because I've always seen the consequences of falling as rather... harsh. For some reason I took to rollerblading.

Snowboarding is a perfect combination of risk/reward for me.

I just kinda skimmed through parts briefly, but I can't wait to watch it beginning to end. I love to see old-time snowboard footage and how things used to be "back in the day". Thx for the post
