SFD Uncut: Jake Olson-Elm

Jake OE sees things differently. At spots where most riders gravitate towards the rail or wall that is right in front of them, Jake is off to the side, eyeing up a weird tranny finder, a strange line, or wondering which bizarre trick he's come up with is even possible. Jake was on nearly every rail trip for the filming of The SNOWBOARDER Movie: SFD. He was constantly in a good mood, constantly psyching people up, constantly on the hunt for new spots for himself or anyone else in the crew, and constantly throwing out the good vibes to keep everybody laughing. Jake's iPod is a treasure, and on most trips he controlled what we listened to. He's quick to bait you into revealing conversations and even quicker to drop whatever he's doing to help shovel. Basically he's one of the best people in snowboarding to have on a crew. In SFD he shared a part with his good bud Ethan Diess, but here is Jake's full footy timeline for the year. We hope you enjoy.

With every video and video part that drops, there are countless shots and endless moments that never see the light of day. The SNOWBOARDER Movie: SFD was no exception. Sometimes some of the riders' favorite shots or filmers' favorite angles don't always make the final cut. Whether they didn't quite fit in the song, another angle was used or a certain trick was done again, there's always great stuff that is talked about by the riders and people there, but other than that it's as if it never existed.

This year we decided to tap into the computers and pull out everyone's unedited timelines and hunt down the treasures, that for whatever reason, didn't make it in or were cut short. SFD UNCUT will let you into the edit room so you can see more from every rider.

Filmed by John Cavan, Trent Ludwig, Derek Weimer, Jon Stark, and Naoki Utsumi. Music by Jason Bayne.
