Though they may officially produce media under the Veeco Productions Moniker, there is no mistaking that classic Volcom style. Low-fi DIY documenting of insane shredding is what has made flicks like The Garden, Subjekt Haakonsen, and 9191 instant classics. In just 3 minutes and 20 Seconds, this video may encapsulate the best of what went down at Superpark® 15. From Farmer rapping at the awards, to Blum straight-arming the wall, to Ruiki imbibing edibles, high times were had by all. Too bad there isn’t a “love” button below because sometimes “like” just doesn’t cut it.
With several last-minute entries bringing the number of Superpark® 15 Video Showdown submissions to beyond the 16 mark, SNOWBOARDER decided to have a Last Chance Qualifier on Facebook to see who would be granted the final spot. Three video producers were tasked with lobbying for the most likes in order to get the nod. Though it was heated, Lake Tahoe’s Nick Khattar and Sentury Snowboards narrowly edged out the other hopefuls. This edit contains a tongue-in-cheek narrative that looks to bring a lighter take on Superpark® 15 to the masses. Lighter is swell but this Showdown is about the “likes.”
