Here we have it boys and girls. ESPN’s premiere contest for snowboarders who film parts (and who do slopestyle contests as well apparently). Watch below as they compete for all the money, cars and the hoes any little urban rider could ever dream of. Check out the videos now, then vote for your fan faves here.
Dylan’s parts are always mind blowing and this one is no different. Oh, you wanna talk shit on his style? Well I’d say it’s pretty damn good considering what he’s jumping off of most of the time. It would make any normal snowboarder black out mid air. One of the my personal favorites was the back one, cab 3 on that closeout. Or that Brighton dam drop, which, by the way, WAS SWITCH. You can’t say shit about that…except for, “Move over Girth Brooks, there’s a new sheriff in town.” I’ve always backed this dood because he picks out a wide array of unique, visually pleasing, larger than average spots and then tries a trick no one would even consider doing. Leaves you wanting more every time! If you are talking shit, you are probably a cry baby and further more, have probably never hit an urban spot in your life. GET BENT.
PREDICTIONS: I don’t think he will win best video part(sigh), but I’ll be dammed (get it, cuz of that dam clip) if he doesn’t win your respect. GREAT JOB OUT THERE PAL!
Well, let us just start by saying that was the worst possible song you could have ever picked. So fucking epic and the slow mo’s way too dramatic. You are a snowboarder doing real snow, not an astronaut going to outer space. Secondly, Fuck you for putting that first shot in there. Like what did I just watch? We are basically just watching a contest kid hit street stuff, some of which is obviously huge, but it sucks because he has no style and probably has little to no previous knowledge about the standards expected out of people’s parts these days. I will give him props for the hardway back 2 through the DFD because you just don’t see that kind of shit. But kid need’s to get learnt before he decides to put something like this together for a contest that every snowboarder and people that aren’t even snowboarders, are going to watch.
PREDICTIONS: Not gonna win. I’m not saying that because he actually won’t win, but because if he does it will be a GOD DAMN TRAVESTY. If this kid wins any of the 4 categories, and it is likely that he will, it will be the devils work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This heres whatcha call your classic Brisse part, chock full of big dick spots, tricks and a typical metal/minnesota influenced song choice. Either Dan truly loves the feeling of almost dying for his country every time he straps in or he has just heavily adopted the saying “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke.” As in, he ain’t broke, so he ain’t gonna fix it. Speaking for the rest of the snowboard community, I would say it would be refreshing if he mixed it up a bit. We get it, you’re a fucking mad man. However this isn’t the type of snowboarding most people are ever going to attempt and not the type of snowboarding I want people to be attempting. THE HOT TUB’S TOO HOT. Your country thanks you for your services Dan now just commes des fucks down and give the people what they really want, which is a part that makes them want to go out and snowboard.
PREDICTIONS: Dan may very well take the cake on this one. It’s not necessarily what you or I want, but it’s most likely what the majority of people that have no real understanding of our sport will want. I like Dan, he’s a nice guy, and I’m sure he could have died hitting all of these spots. I just don’t want this type of snowboarding to be rewarded.
Oh Jeremy, we have seen better parts from you. I know you gave it your best and that this isn’t even a full season’s worth of clips but the monotony here is unbearable. I watched this part a few times now and I still don’t even remember what happened. It’s just too much of the same riding we’ve seen from him time and time again. To be even more critical, tree hits are not suitable for real snow. I’m sure he’s now realized this having seen the other parts. And one footers onto rails, even if you are gapping, should be left to Scott Stevens or anyone in Think Thank. I don’t even know. I’m bored writing.
PREDICTIONS: Better luck next year SAN!
Chris Grenier KEEPIN IT 100. From a snowboarders perspective, Grendies deserves the win. Fuck waiting for the prediction at the bottom, that’s just what it is. His spots were highly inventive, and if they were hit in the past, he made sure to do them better than anyone else ever has done before. This is some of the most impressive riding we’ve seen from him in a minute. Good spots, great riding, SWEG UNTOUCHABLE. And shout out to Pat Fenelon on the filming/editing side of things, it complimented chur boy’s riding and fit with his style better than anyone else’s filmer/editor was able to accomplish. You guys are what’s really <3
PREDICTIONS: I want so badly for Grendies to win. He clearly is the winner to all of us whether he wins or not. The fact of the matter is, the industry is confused right now. As in it doesn’t know whether it’s gay, straight, or Shaun White. 100 bucks says that if he doesn’t win, he will at least get laid. This kid is so hot right now.
