Hailing from north of the border are the boarders behind NuuLife. John Swystun and company came into last year's Showdown as underdogs and kicked ass all the way to the finals where they put up an incredible fight, but ultimately succumbed to Helgasons.com. This year, with the incumbents out of the event, Nuulife have to be considered favorites. Returning to the Superpark® arena and performing once again for the Swystun’s cameras are Tanner Davidson, Craig McMorris and E-Man Anderson. Also appearing in this edit are Zak Stone who settles a cab double cork, Jon Versteeg executing an advanced ho-ho knuckledrag variation, Jordan Phillips tackling a long distance 1080 and Alex Stathis who proves that highbacks aren’t necessary for high performance. Also be on the lookout for cameos from Sam Taxwood, Logan Short, Scott Vine, Stale Sandbech and Adam Chuntz.
Having the home hill advantage means that Sam Tuor knows all the angles when it comes to shooting Mt. Bachelor. This video focuses on some of the Northwest's best shreds as they annihilate Bachelor's Outback zone. Skylar Thornton opens Sam's show with a barrage of booter tricks. From there, Johnny Malanga backside double tweaks the 7 Springs gap hip. Superpark Standouts Scott Vine, Scott Blum, Pat Burgener and Ben Bilocq do have cameos in this edit but they appear sparingly while the brothers Robinson (Aaron and Jason), Nicki Weiss, Forrest Devore and other Cascade crushers carry the edit. Though not a Northwesterner, Blake Paul shouldn't go without mention as he enjoys the more lap friendly side of Superpark® 15.
