Snowboard Movie Reviews 2013/2014: This Season’s ‘MUST SEE’ List

Standouts: Joe Sexton, Scott Stevens, Jake Olson Elm, Justin Fronius

After a double release last year – “Enlighten” and “Darkside” – Videograss returns for 2013 with only one project, which is far less confusing. That said, you still get what you expect in a Videograss movie: Rails, rock, beers, smoke. Joe Sexton opens up with emphasis on technique and style, but it’s certainly Scott Stevens’ part that will get you instantly amped – this guy is just as creative as he is talented. More out of the blue tricks than ever before, set to the punk-pop pogo-ing of Plastique Bertrand – for better or worse. Scott’s talent bagged him the Jury ‘Coup de Coeur’ at The Reels and it’s more than deserved. Plus he was so touched by the gesture that he got all emotional and received a standing ovation.

Other things worth mentioning? Zac Marben has unmatched balance on long rails, Jake Kuzyk is definitely a super tech dude and Jake Olson Elm has a banger part, and a banger trick at the end of it – Cab 270 Hardway to Back Lip on a spot with high consequences. The young and upcoming Justin Fronuis mixes heavy rails and fat backcountry with a lot of ease for his age, and gets the closing part.

Watch this for: Raw, technical jib trickery from one of the most consistent urban crews out there.
