New Teaser ONLINE sneak peak on: http://www.snowboardermag.com/videos/think-thank-special-projects-right-turn-left-turn-teaser/
Think Thank's new Special Projects Division releases it's first video this year! Said movie, titled "Right Turn Left Turn" looks at the season of five snowboarders exploring the art of turning and everywhere it leads them. From a beginner’s side-slide to the perfect high speed carve, Think Thank Special Projects aims to show how the simple act of turning your board can unlock an entire universe of snowboard self expression. Chris Beresford, Max Warbington, Chris Larson, Jesse Burtner and Freddy Perry explore the world using their snowboards both to interpret what they see and to leave their own unique signature behind. Whether it be carving groomers, slashing powder, getting weird in the city or lapping the local park, it all starts with a Right Turn Left Turn.
This teaser is an early look at the project cut to the drumming of Alaskan, life long snowboarder, and drummer in New York’s A Place To Bury Strangers, Robi Gonzalez. The metronome sets the pace and as Robi progresses from the practice pad to the drum kit and beyond, the riders follow suit.
Think Thank Special Projects is a division of Think Thank committed to taking close looks at ideas, individuals, or movements within snowboarding. Right Turn Left Turn will be released together with Think Thank Almanac on Blu-Ray/DVD as well as separately on iTunes this coming August.

SIA was in Denver last weekend. Home of the Broncos, the team we (Seattle) decimated in the Superbowl. More importantly to us though is Desiree winning Women's Video Part of the Year from Brain Dead Heart Attack and also, Women's Rider of the Year at the TWS Rider's Poll Awards! All that hard work paid off, and she's already killing it, stacking clips and working on a repeat performance in the Think Thank Almanac video dropping this Fall.
The speech. Over the years, we've seen some doozies. Desiree's evoked quite a reaction from the audience who were mostly talking and drinking during everyone else's speeches, so just being attention grabbing enough to earn the eyes and ears of the crowd really says something. It was kind of like a John Waters movie of a speech. Like how Pink Flamingo, or Pecker are sort of disturbing but funny and provocative at the same time. It was only a little political (no energy drink sponsor to pay for a front cover), mostly shocking (holding up both awards and yelling "double anal!", and all Desiree; a unique blend of all tastes; spicy, sweet, sour and salty. Way to go!
