  • Poomaster

    Pretty sick edit. Be a tough one to beat.

  • Third Person Reagan

    Reagan is blown away, last tricks were heeeeeaaaaaaavy!! O_O

  • Justin’s bong

    They all jump better then Zak Hale

  • Justin’s bong

    but all in all the edit kinda sucks

  • Dave mcgrath

    Rail game non existent

  • mcgrath “terry” trails

    dont cry

  • rey

    i really do not want snowboarding to go in that direction

  • isthattrevorb

    Buck 90 go’n ham on um’

  • Jimmy

    More park rails

  • hey rey

    the direction of going huge and not dicking around on park boxes?

  • Their were plenty of heavy tricks in this edit, but i wasn’t feeling it at all. The whole point of snowboarding is to go out and have a good time with your friends, and i didn’t get that vibe at all. This video was well shot, and well edited, but i feel that they missed the whole point of this contest. If you win or you lose, it doesn’t matter one bit. Go out and have fun

  • Roger

    I wonder how many things they found that Pat Moore left behind

  • upstatemike.

    are they from colorado? you can always tell a colorado edit by the slightly off music selection…

  • upstatemike.

    PS….thank fucking you for not making this another godamn online voting contest! maybe cool shit will actually win and not the crew with the kookiest fans.

  • 2Rad4U

    I have Shaun White written all over my bracket

  • Anon-mouse

    sik dope vid agggh makez me wunna go down da hill so fast and spinny spin like deez guys.

    I didn’t know Siskel and Ebert up there had such a keen eye on editing. I am assuming with such advanced knowledge of filming you would be able to pick out redundancy, something this edit joyfully lacks, and one Matej’s video pours (respectfully). Should be an easy win for Dave this round.

  • dmx

    @isthattrevorb. Buck90 is so wack. candygrinders making colorado look like a bunch of turds.

  • haldors-tits

    why would you use music from the SKIING gopro advert matej?????

  • @Roger

    pretty funny how dave showed pat pretty much 75% off all the spots on his real snow edit.

    before you hate , knowledge is key.

  • isthattrevorb

    @Dmx Colorado did it to itself you turd

  • @@Roger

    Why would you go back to a spot everyone has seen and film it the same way as someone else and do less heavy tricks? That shit dont make no sense!

  • Number 23

    How come there are only 4 real crews. The rest are just like solo parts with some friends added in!

  • Danimal

    props to all the crews in this contest! there was was some quality editing and so many bangers! we are stoked to be a part of this smorgisborg of awesomeness!

  • Dave Schmidt

    Agreed this contest is tight! Let the hate roll on that shit is comedy chCH!

  • Darren

    What’s with all these videos being like pro rider DVD edits? Seeing swing booms and the like, last year this comp had people with gopros riding around having fun filming each other. This is too much about production, getting the shot right and not enough about having fun with mates and just riding.

  • @Darren

    If snowboarding wasnt fun why the fuck would these guys film all winter and drop infinite amounts of $$$ and time into it its not like any of these guys get paid or will. Grow up pal snowboarding is fun regardless of whether u put 20 shots of smiles gay hugs or bails lined with an upbeat homoerotic song.

  • Jacob mortensen

    Mad props to everybody on the videos they put together!! Haters gonna hate!

  • fired

    damn that last bracket’s gonna be a tough call

  • Swingers

    All the edits were awesome in their own way and hyped to be a part of this. Names are Names, your edit was fire! Nice work out there, keeping on doing your thing and come to Loon and catch some laps and some coldies with the swingers!

  • well

    justin cahill. please grab.

  • just sayin

    Buck 90 and Swingers got this round.
