It’s that time of year when snowboard film teaser are coming out for the 09-10 season, getting you amped from a mini clip of what’s to come. The boys at Absinthe have been working hard on their new film, Neverland and it’s finally out with the teaser and full tour schedule so you can’t miss it.
Neverland is a state of mind, a mountain pushed up from the ground by imagination. Anyone can go but most people have trouble with the simple directions: Follow your dreams. This winter Absinthe dropped down the rabbit hole to explore this elusive place and brought back some mind bending tales and a pocketful of surprises. Travis Rice, Dan Brisse, Bode Merrill, Nicolas Müller, Sylvain Bourbousson, JP Solberg, Romain deMarchi, DCP, Marc Frank Montoya, Annie Boulanger, Marie-France Roy, Jules Reymond, Wille Yli-Luoma, Cale Zima, Phil Damianakes, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Kevin Pearce, Eero Ettala, Gigi Rüf and the rest of the Lost Boys continued down the road less traveled and explored some new possibilities during a winter that saw the progression of snowboarding take some giant strides. This place has everything….. come on, I show you.
Sphere of Influence Tour
The boys from Absinthe, with a little help from their friends and snowboarding family, will criss-cross the US, Canada and Europe screening the new project by Justin Hostynek, Patrick Armbruster & company. The SOI tour takes an environmentally responsible approach to bringing the anticipation of winter to art house theaters around the globe. Absinthe will tour North America and Europe to spread awareness of environmental issues important to all snowboarders and will donate $2 of every ticket sold to support non-profit social and environmental organizations. Everyone is asked to do their part to reduce our carbon footprint and help the cause by using alternate transport to these events- walk, bike, skate, hop the train or carpool- it matters to us all.
