Insane new edit from Marcus Rand with some heater clips by RP
White buffalo slayer Ted Borland shuts it down with his iconic smooth style applied to some of the gnarliest street terrain imaginable. Seemingly unaware of the limitations of metal edges Ted just "leans back" to get through a cornucopia of knobs, rough cement or rusty rails. Proving to all confused authority and super citizens that you can't stop skate (or snowboarders) with skate stoppers because you can't see the future, only people like Ted can. Enjoy a peek at the future as Big Smooth perfectly rotates his crops and gets curtains with a mixture of creativity, style and stunts.
The legend of Chip and Des.
When snowboarding Justin "Chip" Keniston flows through the streets like water through an aqueduct, he was born to it. A chill dude, not one to fly the "yeah me!" flag, Chip is more interested in the friends, spots, tricks and laughs along the way. Often traversing the states between the Portlands, ME to OR, with his board and dog Red as companions, spreading the word of good style and great friendships. Once along the way he stopped on a dusty road at one of thousands of America's "roadside attractions" between Springfield and El Paso. It was "The World's Biggest Ball of Fire!" or at least that's what the sign said. Below it sat Desiree Melancon.
She was seven feet tall, with liquid hot iron running through her veins. Her hair changed colors and her tattoos spoke. Her snowboard was sharper than a Hatori Hanzo sword (and had killed more ninjas) and her voice carried up the valley so clearly it's power alone shaped kickers.
Chip took all this in and said "We should film a part together." And so they did and the rest is history.
Enjoy Chip and Des from "Methods of Prediction"
The extra stuff we have filmed between then and now. Ryan Paul, Brandon Reis, Phil Hansen, Mikey Swearingen, and everyone else we met along the way.
Kimbo Slice with one of the heaviest rail parts we've ever seen.
Max Warbington and Sam Hulbert's part from Methods of Prediction
Think Thank is very excited to have RP back in the mix. BY the looks of this part RP was very excited to be back in the mix as well. He truly rides his snowboard like nobody else. We can't wait to see what he comes up with this year.
Ted brought the Bone Zone back to life so we went and stacked. Check out Ted Borland and Brandon Reis ripping the place apart.
The average day for Brandon Reis this winter. Wake up, wake up the crew staying at your house, make sure they are all happy, load all the gear in your car, pick the spot with Ted, drive them all there while screaming along to top ten hits, make a million jokes, act like an idiot all day to keep crew moral high, do the day's 1 to 3 hardest tricks as good as they can be done, help everyone else get shots, pick the restaurant, make sure everyone is happy with said restaurant, drive them there, drive them back to your girlfriend's parent's house, make sure they are set up and happy, play with Merlin the dog, hang with the GF, make some really weird art then go to sleep. Now repeat like that until the entire Think Thank video is finished. The moral of the story? Brandon is a fucking phenomenal snowboarder and friend. Enjoy 6 minutes of him being him in #methodsofprediction.
