  • Ting

    ZEACHSQUAD without a doubt

  • Scoot

    14 seconds for the win

  • Jimmash

    Fucking ioda my dudeeeee

  • blood

    Its like jake durham hosted a seminar on how to film and edit videos like him.

  • spenciepoo


  • That Guy

    Ioda was fucking dope tho…

  • I’m hoping the two videos that got picked are wild and crazy creative or something like that if Yawgoons picked them

  • Yepyep


  • Smit Up Rail Lobster Whore

    can’t lie…Spiderleaf had some pretty legit editing and fliming

  • @blood

    gain some skate video knowledge, and then you’ll retract your statement. FUCK HD

  • griffinflack


  • hmm

    does anybody take time to ride in the streets anymore?

  • Slender man

    Funny how three of these are from Minnesota. When is everyone else going to step up their game?

  • jank

    this is gay

  • Jake Durham

    I DID

  • mdot

    Ya that one edit was a crazy bite of Jake durhams style. Didnt make it work like he does doe

  • brozeman

    right when i was starting to wonder where the lindley park rail was…

  • Jerm’s Mom

    errbody wants to be like those Palace kidz.

  • Zeach wad Wack attack!

    I swear if I see one more goddamn park edit I’m going to shoot my monitor! Do you park rats really think you’re going to get noticed riding like shooting star entries? Street and Backcountry are the only legit disciplines. Get outta the park and into the streets all you east coast, mid westerners! All your park shots look like B grade bullshit from the 90s If you want to film a park edit. It had better be at:
    1. 7 springs
    2. Loon
    3. Park City
    4. Mt. Hood
    5. Brighton.
    6. Sun Valley
    7. Northstar
    8. Bear
    9. Mammoth
    10. Whistler.

    Move away from wherever flat shit hole you reside to real mountains. Pathetic waste of time! Except the last two

  • Lazy riders, take notes from TOO HARD! Those bitches know how to ride. Take notes amateur hour poseurs!

    Have any of you ever heard of a shovel? They are great for clearing off stairs for handrails and building jumps. But you might as well use one to dig a hole to hide in. Because everyone is laughing at you right now for your sad excuse of an edit. White suburban kids listening to gangsta rap is so 90s. Self proclaiming your crew in the comments just makes it more pathetic Sad day for snowboarding.

  • Where’s the powder?

    I know its been a slow snow season but really? Not one pow turn or legit jump shot? Watch Darkside and then watch your shitedit. Way to regress snowboarding -10+ years. Who in their right mind thinks that filming a whole segment in a terrible park is going to get noticed? All that shitty brick weed you smoke must have been laced with PCP and Crack because this is worse than “Lick the Cat” Which I’m sure you idolize but those fools suck too. For some fools from minnesota you’d think they’d know where all the good street rails are. Maybe none of you have cars and get dropped off at the hill by your soccer moms.

  • Montana Weeds legit

    Spider leaf all the way. They hit real big jumps. Sick park at big sky

  • Keith Duck

    Zeach squad widen your fucking stances, I threw up at the sight of your heels touching with your chode-bro-sharks. Sincerely the world. #lovestogroom

  • ha ha ha

    spiderleaf dudes didn’t hit the big jumps in the background!

  • and

    the ioda dudes woulda been fun to see at bachelor with the big ol trannys and what not

  • Keith Duck Central High Principle


  • Ass Pirate

    Flippin Bird

  • Do I write my comment here? Anyways, the Common guys kill it harder than Jeffrey Dahmer, and their video was dope. Cant wait til the top two drop



    zeach squad trying to be original…. but…. will always be trend copiers and mini jeds

  • Cool

    Yeah bro, those dick head 16 year olds gotta move out west and quit being pussies. Right?

  • I dont understand the satisfaction you all get at trying to make someone feel worse about their snowboarding. Remember what your momma told you “if you aint got nothin nice to say, dont say anything at all” “If you cant run with the big dogs stay one the porch” and my favourite “if you cant snowboard very well, then hide behind a username and make rude comments” S.R.D is my personal favourite. All the other edits were cool to. cheers.

  • shmeagle from HCSC

    shoutout to whoever said gain some skate knowledge. look at any good skate video/edit (not PRETTY SWEET) and its edited in a style like that. no one is biting jake, its just that most snowboarders dont have any skate knowledge or history of how it was filmed before HD

    makefriendsordie is rad, and a breath of fresh air to snowboarding and all these goofy edits out there, but its nothing “new”. thats not hate, just truth. MAKEFRIENDSORDIE and WARPWAVE are the best thing to happen to snowboarding since scotty wittlake chipped his front tooth

    bridgehaus and spiderqweef nailed it on the editing in my opinion

  • blood

    I was simply making a joke.
    That being said,
    i doubt the homies were thinking about old skate flicks when they were putting their edit together. They were probably thinking about how dope that new makefriendsordie joint was, and how they could make their video that cool.

    So bitch, Get outta here with that back talk.

    I do agree though, hd is for the birds. 4:3 for life.

  • Old school !!

  • @wack attack aka kid that is ignorant

    have u seen the starks elementary edits or durhams make friends edits? yea those “flat shit holes” are a real waste of time when they produce those edits… Right? Common Apparel = BEAN$$$BEAN$$$

  • Randy

    Better than my cheese burgers!

  • aL

    zeach squad gives off bad vibes when they come to your local hill but they kill it

  • Adam

    precum’s got da heet. stoner steve 4 prez. br1dg3 haus.

  • j lu


  • poopyasswater

    spider leaf edit was pretty sick i deff enjoyed watching that shit

  • S.R.D

    SRD OR DIE!!

  • Trendsetter

    Before any of you kooks claim jake durham was the inventor of editing/filming watch any well made skateboarding edit ever…

    Lets be real, jake’s rad. You dick riders are fucking soft.

  • @trendsetter

    cuz none of that has been said at all yet…..

  • sqwundle

    Good use of elite Gymnastics zeachsquad, been waiting for an edit with that group

  • curtin

    BRidge House was so fucking proper

  • Just throwing it out there… not all skate vids are edited like a makefriends/elementary video. The edits that come out of different regions are totally different and the videos from different years are totally different. Sure, you got your LurkNYC and Pyramid County edits, but you also got shit like that emulates the JustNipples style, or the Sk8rats style or the fucking new-Thrasher videos. So when people say these guys are ripping skate edits off, I don’t think they know what the fuck they’re talking about.
