There are few more eloquent descriptions of Pat Moore’s journey from young, Waterville Valley upstart to the influential snowboarder that he is today than the one penned by Tom Monterosso about the world premiere of Mr. Plant in Plymouth, New Hampshire last October. Amidst a very apt description of Pat’s youth on the East Coast, T. Bird writes,
“Pat Moore the am migrated west to pursue professional snowboarding where he would blossom into Pat Moore the pro and ultimately—I believe more importantly—he would blossom into Pat Moore the man, and thankfully, as a native of The Granite State and its burgeoning snowboard scene, he never forgot where he came from.
Unbelievable success has accompanied Pat’s career. He’s won prestigious pipe events and X Games medals, filmed incredible ender video parts, appeared on our annual Rider of the Year list multiple times and established himself as one of the hardest working and most well-rounded riders in the history of snowboarding. However, unlike many of his heroes and peers like Terje Haakonsen, Gigi Rüf, and Travis Rice, he has never had a full-length feature film attached solely to his name. Until now.”
Working with Volcom and filmer/director Jake Price, Pat has executed a snowboard film that truly shines a light on not only his own boundary-defying snowboarding, but those of his Volcom teammates and friends. In Mr.Plant, Pat is joined by a roster that includes Terje Haakonsen, Bryan Iguchi, Jamie Lynn, Scott Blum, Mike Ravelson, Jake Price, Arthur Longo and more. The beauty of the parts creates the whole in the case of Mr.Plant and as the green vine animation grows longer with each segment, Pat’s own part serves as a testament to how very deserving he of his own film not only due to his insane ability when strapped in, but also because of how readily he embraces his own heritage as well as snowboarding’s.
For the next 24 hours, watch and re-watch Pat’s full part right here, because on Thursday, it will be gone.
