Seth Hill is the type of rider who shows up early and stays late, committed to getting shots and stacking clips with a rare fervor. During Superpark 18, Seth’s energetic approach to standing sideways earned him further recognition as the recipient of the Jeff Ecker Award, a celebration of living life to the fullest. This motivation is echoed in the film project Seth has been working on the past season, Really Gotta Wanna. What is on the playlist that Seth prefers to listen to when he’s sending it off enormous kickers and dialing in tricks on rails? We tapped this Colorado-based snowboarder to let us in on the melodies that get him from first drop to last chair.

What video part song that you've used have you been most stoked on? Well, my first real video part was with Wild Card Movies, and it was a compilation of a few songs by The Polish Ambassador. I was pretty stoked on it, kind of an up beat, hip hop vibe.
If you could be one rock star, who would it be? SHAUN WHITE…duh. But, for real, not super into the rock star thing, but tt probably would have been fun to kick it with Sublime.
Simple Guilty Pleasures (what are you ashamed to admit you actually like): Not ashamed, but I’ll get down to top 40 pretty much anytime.
Turn it Down (music you can't stand): Screamo.
