uphill dream sequence (short first video)

hey, all.
i went snowboarding for my fifth time yesterday. usually i go to tahoe, but it had snowed in the santa cruz mountains and my friend and i hunted out a spot that was just fresh enough and open enough for us to board it. we built two ramps and hit it up. it may not have been the greatest conditions, but 20 minutes from home is miraculous compared to the usual 4 hour drive.

anyway, i put together some footage and made a small concept video.
the premise is that without a lift, one is forced to hike uphill run after run.
after hitting the run a few times, the hike became exhausting, and i was only able to keep going by thinking of how much fun it would be once i was back at the top and done strapping in.

thus, this 30 second video was born.
first time making a video,
fifth time ever on a board.

let me know what you think.

haha, thanks man.
it helps to keep in mind that i didn't land any of the 180's, but i handled them well enough to edit them into looking somewhat solid.
that, and i've been skateboarding since i was a few feet tall.
i've got some serious leverage, now that i understand the difference from medium to medium. (wheels to sled, linear roll to flowing carves) the balance is all the same once you get properly oriented.
anyway, thanks for the feedback,
i was just so stoked that snow came to my mountain!

it's gnarly in tahoe right now,
i'm all over it

Oh man, have fun in Tahoe! We are getting the love again here on Mt. Hood. It has even snowed in downtown Portland!

yeah, school just started for me so i have to wait till tuesday to squeeze another trip in.

you live in portland or just nearby?
my roommate and i are considering taking a trip up there to see if we want to take up residence.
we're very used to the san francisco bay area, and i've had some portland locals say it would be a smooth transition.

(if anything, i'd love to go just so i'd be closer to snow in the winter )

Yeah, temperature wise it is very similar to the bay area, just a bit more rain. I actually live across the river in Vancouver, Washington. Summers here are awesome with summer snowboarding at Timberline and all of the hiking and rafting to be found not to mention all the lakes for boating and fishing. For a change of scenery, it is a short drive to central Oregon and the desert terrain of the Deschutes River with it`s fun class 3 and 4 whitewater. The power kiting and windsurfing on the Columbia out of Hood River is also a lot of fun. The coast is an hour away with great beaches. Seattle and all it`s attractions is just a 2 hour drive up I-5. All in all, its a pretty nice locale.
yeah man, sounds legit!

i've also had it brought to my attention recently that both seattle and portland are very deeply immersed in art culture.
san francisco is good for that in many ways, but down here in san jose, the creative spirit seems a little dry.

realistically, pending a few visits and some exploration, i'm seriously considering heading up that way.
