04 Sep, 2008

Here is episode 2 of Powder and Rails…if you have ever wondered about the beginning of snowboarding with some amazing footage and interviews about the classic The Western Front, check out this show.

From the producers:

Watching FLF’s “Western Front” nowadays, you may think this is some fruity shit. But if you’ve ever seen any other snowboarding videos from around the same time you understand that “Western Front” is the coolest thing going. It’s the first snowboarding video ever made that wasn’t like a promo or a team video. Freestyle riding was the main focus and it was more about doing tricks rather than winning races or trying to replicate the stuff that skiers did. Snowboarding was really small then and not many people even got to see the video, but it set the stage for what snowboarding was going to turn into.
