A huge chunk of the last year of my life has been put into the filming, editing and production of my latest snowboard/powsurfing film.

“Powder-Day Saints – The Second Coming” will premier next week in Logan Utah with a couple more Utah screenings hopefully in the near future. I made this film on a $0 budget… it took countless hours of time in the edit room aside from the time and effort taken to shoot it all. My resources are limited, so unfortunately it may not get seen much anywhere else outside of our small scene… we’ll see what happens I guess.

All expenses came directly out of my pocket… I would hate to even add it up… especially counting the hours of work I have poured into it. I would be in the hole tens of thousands of $. (I hope my wife doesn’t read this) Funny what you find yourself doing when you follow your passion. I set a personal goal to get this completed this year so I can move on to the next project. Maybe it will pay off some day.. if not, I have priceless experiences and good times along the way to show for it.. along with a nice video journal of the past couple of seasons of riding snowboards and powsurfers. If you haven’t checked out the film, peep the teaser here…….


The video basically consists of my friends from Northern Utah and I hucking booters, dropping cliffs, punching lines and just loving it in the powder… Riding snowboards, skis, sleds, and powdersurf boards.

The majority of the film is snowboarding as I am holding onto a lot of material for the release of a full length powsurfing film.. something I have been working on for a few years now but have lacked the time to complete. Next fall will bring to light some really cool stuff.

Utah is having a stellar winter so far. 150% of Normal snowpack and it doesn’t seem to be letting up. Grings and I got out for a beautiful day on Christmas Eve to test out the new shape and size I’ve been working on.

Here’s a look at a run on the new big mountain Grassroots Powsurfer..

Oh Magog.

Nearly two feet of snow had fallen over the past few days and I was itching to get out. I had crushed my foot while moving a big boulder out of the landing of one of our jumps the day before the storm hit and my foot was swollen and in a lot of pain, but I really had to get out and slash some pow.

All the homies in town were stuck at work so Storm-dog and I had our own session. The snowpack was pretty damn good for this early in the season. We are pretty limited to the grassy slopes this time of year, so we made the most of it- Jumping the little bumps and mini rollers and slashing as much pow as possible on a couple of different powdersurf boards.
The powsurf quiver for today..

Storm is getting older and slowing down a bit, but he’s still loving fresh pow

I was quickly reminded of how damn fun it is to ride these silly boards. Gotta love the simple pleasures in life.

Self portrait slasher

My mind gets board with no one to talk to up in the hills so I decided to take some photos and video of the day. Since my dog cannot operate a camera, I had to do it all myself. The action still shots didn’t work out so great but I managed to get a couple of shots that were ok. The video turned out pretty good though…
