Hey, Old Friend—Mike Rav, Nate Carroll, Cooper Whittier and More

Paul Osborne was going through some unused footage and decided to put it all together for our enjoyment. Featuring Mike Rav, Nate Carroll, Jeff Holce, Ralph Kucharek, Cooper Whittier, Christian Buliung, Davey Stags, and plenty more, Paul explains below. More of Paul’s edits here!

“I started this edit about 2 months ago when I found this song while in a youtube hole and it made me nostalgic of all the good times I’ve had with all of the great people I’ve met thought the last decade all thanks to snowboarding. I unfortunately never got to meet Dillion Ojo but I assumed out paths would eventually cross at some point. With his recent passing, it becomes crystal clear that nothing in life is certain or guaranteed and that we are who we are because of the people we surround ourselves with and our friends become our family as we move further along our individual timelines. Whether it’s a couch to crash on, a ride to the mountain, a trip to the skatepark or a day trip to a lake, we surround ourselves with our friends and without them, we’d just be another lonely soul looking for an escape.

This edit was just about finished when my roommate Rav went to Dillon’s service and I haven’t touched it until just recently.

I can 100% say that I would not be where I am today without all of my good friends who I’ve met through snowboarding in one way or another. Tell your friends you love them before you can’t.

This edit is a bunch of footage that never got used from the last year and a half from Superpark 2017, HCSC session 6 2017 and Brighton Resort 2017-2018.

I love you all.” – Paul Osborne
