Friday Funday #2

Man the mid 2000s ruled. A retard was running the country, a war or two were happening on the other side of the world and an economic collapse was on the horizon, but so what. We were too busy having fun to care, and many of us weren’t old enough to vote anyway. For us, this was an era of change, revolution and reinvention. Snowboard movies began to stray form the standard trick porn format and take a more in-depth look at the lives of our favorite pros. Little documentary projects popped up left and right like Airblaster’s “December” and Blank Paper Studio’s “91 Words for Snow” and Kids Know made snowboarding badass again. By the way, in case you don’t know or forgot, David Benedek did the first double cork in a halfpipe in “91 Words for Snow.”

Snowboarders themselves started to shape a new image of snowboarding. A jean and sweater party burst out onto the scene and Corey Smith showed the world that there was more to do than contests and big stupid jumps. His part in NeoProto should be considered a classic. Enjoy.

Love/Hate defined a generation. From Mikey’s mind a revolution was born. If I could I would just loop Love/Hate instead of writing this story, but Darrell Mathes and Justin Hebbel’s parts can’t be found on the interwebs. *Look for the back 180 in this part.

From Technine to the gangsta’ kid in the hipster movies, Justin Bennee has proven he rules. You know who else rules, Matty Ryan. These two paired up to create one of the best shared parts ever, and it didn’t hurt that the song made white kids (snowboarders) look cool when stopped in traffic. *Bennee broke his face filming this part, literally. But managed to keep filming and get one of the best 270s ever on film.

People was the awkward love child we were left with after NeoProto and Mack Dawg combined forces. I know this isn’t going to set well with anyone, but serioulsy, Mack Dawg is such a dumb name. Anyway, although I didn’t really love where People ended up, I rank Nima’s part from “We’re People Too” as one of the most progressive and re-watchable parts of the era.

Andy Forgash might not have been all that great at snowboarding, but he did provide us with a clip or two from Scotty Wittlake each year. Either way, here’s more from Love/Hate so be super happy and enjoy the shit out of this mess of a video part.

After the old Technine team got too famous to spend all their time filming for FODT they would basically just hand over a large portion of shitty B-roll and call it good. Luckily for you most of the B-roll in this section of Moment of Truth is from Love/Hate. Check out some random stuff from Hebbel, Darrell, Kooley and MFM.

Every word in this post-even those based on real people-are entirely fictional. The quotes might be bullshit too.
