Venice, California-based Arbor Snowboards is most notably known for the bamboo that their boards are constructed from, but after this edit, they’ll hopefully recognized for more than simply bamboo by the core. As arguably the strongest team to show up to Superpark® 15 (including DC and CAPiTA), Arbor’s riders tore apart every feature from dusk ’til dawn. From Cody Boan lapping the jump line to Chelone Miller sending it off the HCSC 100-footer, and Sean Black mini-shredding some of the most creative lines at Bachelor and Mark Reininga taking down the massive wallride, Arbor’s all-around showing is worthy of a few “Likes.” Oh, and then there’s Scotty Vine, whose on-hill exploits earned him the Gatorade “Go All Day” Superpark® 15 Standout award. His one-footed antics and destruction of every single feature at Superpark® allowed the staff of SNOWBOARDER to unanimously crown him the overall best rider that showed up to Mt. Bachelor. Check out Arbor’s edit and if you deem it fit to advance to the next round, all you have to do is click the “Like” link underneath the video.
Derek Weimer is the elusive lensman behind Mystery District. In a week that saw no less than 53 High Cascade Snowboard Camp edits hit the World Wide Web, Mystery District’s 2011 Superpark® Showdown entry is the only one that doesn’t have Scott Stevens in it. What this edit does have is more top notch footage from Mt Bachelor. Predominantly from the perspective of the HCSC zone this submission stands out due to having unique shots including the ondeck vantage of the cross court hip where the vertical exploits of Ben Biloq, Sam Taxwood, Griffen Siefert and Bode Merril are seen in a new light.
