Our third snowboard movie premiere of the year at the Freight House District was wild. Technine and the boys from FODT know how to party. Stars of Familia 2 Andrew Brewer, Jake Devine, Mark Frank Montoya, Dylan Thompson and Cole Talylor all showed up to mingle and party with the fans.
Boreal brought down a box and a rail for all the kids who wanted to show off. We had an Am Jam contest with celebrity judge Andrew Brewer. All of about 30 entries were just happy to drop in and get a quick fix of snowboarding before the season starts. The field was mostly guys but there were two girls representing, and there was even one skier. We definitely had some good riding and some good spills going down. In the end Bryce Salazar won a brand new Banshee Bungee, so he can continue to perfect urban rails.
Afterwards, the movies began with Givin “One.” Givin is a new production company Formed by snowboarder Keegan Valaika and Cinematographer Aaron Hooper, their goal is to create snowboard movies for snowboarders, by showing a combination of snowboarding and the snowboarding lifestyle. “One” had a really fun feel in addition to some great riding.
Of course we had to do some product tossin’ and a raffle to hook up all the kids. We even auctioned of Eternal cover boy Andrew Brewer for a date to the highest bidder, which was $70. Lucky gal!
When it was time for “Familia 2” by Finger On Da Trigger, everyone was amped. This flick was packed with some of the most progressive urban snowboarding ever. Plus this movie features two of Eternal’s heavy hitters, Andrew Brewer and Jake Devine, both of which were on hand to sign autographs.
We went straight from movie premiere to after party with Kreayshawn headlining the night.
It was a whirlwind event for sure. I think we are all ready for some real snow to hit. All these premieres have got me amped. Good thing we only have one more to go, the Forum movie “Vacation.” Check out more pictures from the night on our Facebook.
Special thanks go out to Andrew Brewer, Jake Devine, Mark Frank Montoya, Dylan Thompson, Cole Talylor, Sean Sullivan, Johnny Lazz, Zander Blackmon, Joshua Parker, DJ, John Scott, Ryan Reidel and the entire Freight House Crew, Lane Knack, Technine, Nomis, Paul Perez from Skullcandy, Kristian Walters. Most of all we want to thank all everyone who strapped in for the rail jam. For next year we will be thinking bigger and better.
THANKS EVERYONE FOR COMING OUT!!
