It’s time. Superpark 15 Video Showdown presented by Gatorade has officially kicked off, and the first round of filmers and riders vying for the $5,000 grand prize are revealed: Nullify Media vs. Think Thank. Last year, NuuLife made it all the way to the finals in a David vs. Goliath run to the top, while Think Thank advanced to the semis, only to be voted off the internet island. Who will win this heavy first round? Only you can decide that, by clicking the “Like” button underneath the video you like best. Let the frames begin! Voting will end 6/14/11 at midnight.

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.
Jesse Burtner and company have made some of the most influential snowboard movies under the Think Thank moniker for a long time, and the crew is back with a Superpark 15 Video Showdown edit that’s unorthodox and out of the box. And that’s exactly what these guys do best. Witness Ted Borland, Austin Hironaka, Scotty Stevens, Jason Robinson, Jake Kuzyk, Matty Mo, Jesse Burtner, Sean Black, Pat Milbery and a handful of others lap the Superpark venue’s tranny, trees, bonks, and jibs galore. And remember, if you think that Think Thank should advance to Round 2, click that “Like” link underneath this edit.
