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.

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 :thumbsup:

The more I snowboard, the more I think skateboarders are crazy. Respect to their risks, now a girl is impressed.:)

Every time I see a Craig Kelly video it just seems like he's having the most fun of any pro riders. Riding for the sake of riding. R.I.P

Great video, thanks for the link. I actually started boarding back in 1988 if you can believe that. All those guys in the videos, Kelly, Palmer, etc. were the pros I read about in magazines and looked up to. Some kid in the video actually had the first board I ever owned....a Look Lamar pro model. It was the ugliest board I've ever seen but it worked great at the time. I also road the Burton Air for a couple years. Pretty funny to see all the Kemper, Sims, morrow, etc. boards that are either gone or considered junk these days. Those were legit boards back in the day. Anyway, brings back a bunch of memories from when they didn't even have park features and Skiers outnumbered boarders 50 to 1.
