Matt Belzile has quietly been crushing Whistler for a while now, and his full part from the Manboys is no exception. In the words of our esteemed Editor Tom Copsey, natives of Whistler suffer from the problem that there’s simply just too many good riders coming from British Columbia. Therefore their efforts get drowned in the deluge of edits coming from the legendary range.
Well, we reckon Matt’s efforts this season should help him break the surface of the scene. The Manboys series just won the Online Video Project of the Year at TransWorld Snowboarding’s Riders’ Poll Awards, a accolade duly deserved by the Canuck crew.
Whilst the lofty backside 1080 spanning the length of the Pan-American Highway could be the standout moment of the 3-minute visual assault on the senses – we reckon the big switch line at 1:30, including a switch method that wouldn’t look out of place on our cover just tickles the right spot for us. Absolutely mega.
