Winter Renaissance Highlights



Snowboarding lines shot in banger high definition makes it as raw as ever; a little dancehall track to back—as a neat beat off the street—doesn't hurt either.

Over the last season, the Northwest Collective crew caught a good show on camera from Nate Lind, Sammy Luebke, and Eric Jackson as seen performing HERE in this little podcast placed on the net by them at Lib Tech. (I blogged about the original trailer for Winter Renaissance back in mid September, if you remember.)

Now if only my entire classic shred video collection of VHS tapes played this good on our Sony 1080i LCD flat screen. If I pretend my movie library (even that of DVD) was entirely shot Super 8 style, all artsy and stuff, then it's passable by visual comparison to this new way of thinking and seeing riding on TV.
