At the onset of the fourth Superpark® Video Showdown matchup SNOWBOARDER encountered a glitch with the backend coding of our “like” button system. SNOWBOARDER’s top notch nerds as well as Mark Zuckerbergs elite Facebook nerds discovered this problem early in the voting process on Wednesday morning and immediately began working diligently to remedy the situation. With the coding now deemed up to code and any potential discrepancies alleviated, this faceoff begins anew.
The fouth matchup of the Superpark® 15 Video Showdown presented by Gatorade has two top contenders dueling to take one step closer to the $5,000 first place prize. With over 800 snowboardermag.com visitors voicing their opinions via the “Like” style voting for the first faceoff, we feel compelled to recap the process by which you can decide the fate of one of these two Superpark® 15 filmmakers. Below each video featured here is an icon that presents an opportunity to “Like” the corresponding submission. Simply click the “Like” for the edit you like more. Voting will end 6/25/11 at 5PM PST.

Keep The Change
Eastern Boarder, the legendary shop behind the much-anticipated “Keep the Change” film has done it again with their Superpark® Showdown submission. By “done it again,” we mean focused simply on shredding, rather than fancy editing tactics and post-production facades. In other words, “Keep the Change” keeps it simple with some of the best riding we’ve seen in an edit thus far. One of the reasons that it may be some of the best riding we’ve seen is because there’s such a large quantity of it. Seriously, this video has more riders than all the other edits put together, and that’s attributed to the man behind the camera, Mr. Colton Feldman; a top-notch guy. Colton was running around Superpark® as a man on a mission. His mission was to capture more riding than any other videographer in attendance, and in our opinion, he succeeded…triumphantly. Sit back and watch (in order) Peter Line, Pat Burgener, Ted Lavoie, Riley Nickerson, Parker Duke, Max Warbington, Ben Bilocq, Scott Vine, Seth Hill, Blake Geis, Sam Taxwood, Griffin Siebert, Blake Paul, Gus Warbington, Matt Belzile, Jeff Kramer, Ted Borland, Scott Blum, a sans-highback Alex Stathis, LNP, Alex Beebe, Dylan Dragotta, Tanner Davidson, Jake Kuzyk, Forest Baliey, and a special ender from the Shawn Farmer.

Kevin Sansalone and Clayton Larsen are the figureheads behind Canada’s Sandbox. Ever since the Lake Louise Superpark® days, Sandbox has been a strong supporter of this annual gathering. In 2011 they again added a stop at Mt. Bachelor to the filming schedule for their new release Day And Age which is due out this fall. In addition to a crew of heavy Canucks and hungry newcomers, Sandbox brought Kirk Bereska to Superpark®. Kirk’s claim to fame in this arena is that he has documented more Superpark® events than any other filmer on earth. In case you are wondering which one Kirk is, he is easily recognized by the skis he wears and his work has captured the smoothest follow cams to date. He also appeared in two photos in last year’s print feature. For the 2011 Superpark® Video Showdown, Sandbox chose to focus on the exploits of Jon Versteeg, Steve Cartwright, Clint Allan and a few other notable shreds. Even Rusty Ockenden made it to the big booter show. This rare park appearance by Rusty is actually his first since Superpark 2010. Seriously. Before Mt. Bachelor the last time Rusty even rode into any park was in Mammoth 12 months before. This means that Rusty “likes” Superpark as well as Sandbox and should be reason enough for you to “like” this edit.
