Your Input: SIA Videos

20 Jan, 2010

Over the summer I invested in a Canon Vixia High-Definition Camcorder so that during SIA I could get High-Definition focus on Todd Richards or whoever else stepped in front of the camera.  Now that SIA is just a week away, I want to ask you specifically to name one product you’d like to see in a short video.

Example from last year’s SIA

The best part about this is I don’t have to be the one in front of the camera (just ask the guys about that experience) and it gives you a video on one of your favorite products.  Just remember I can’t ask everyone to introduce every product so leave a comment with your favorite product you’d like to see.

Also if you have any great ideas for this new camcorder, I always love to hear input and if I use your idea, you get a box of goodies in the mail.

    Perhaps, you should interview Suzanne Akin. Owner of Akinz. She just released some way rad hoodie dresses for her line. Plus we are going to be at SIA on Saturday. Just checking things out. We should hook up.

    Are you planning to cover the “apres SIA” events? I think the parties would prove for some interesting footage and I’m sure you’ll bump into cool folks…

    Capita…saturnia. Union binders. Rome. Arbor…new boards.

    And how about we get to see some intro to park videos, Shay style. I like learning new stuff with someone who is at your level. That way you can share the pain and triumph together…and then hit the bar. Sometimes going with a big group is good and it pushes you, but everyone has their pace.

    I might be asking a lot, but videos of your on-snow demos? Just a few things…Featured Demos.

    You should find riders and interview them about the specifics of the board they ride and why. Also what input they had with it’s design

    I would like to see the inside scoop on capita and union.

    One of the ideas I came up with for our site is a new feature called “iride. ilive. iamwakeboarding.” Maybe it would be interesting to see from some of the industry insiders/pros, etc. what snowboarding means to them, why they snowboard and what they contribute to snowboarding to spread the stoke that is snowboarding. Email me if you’re interested to hear more.

    Awesome recommendations! They are all added to the list and the extra ideas, I really appreciate! I’m going to think them over and get back to you, if I end up using them.

    Devin, the magazines cover the parties quite nicely since they have the best access to them. I generally tend to skip out or attend them for a short period since I find the products the most crucial part of the show for me. I will be attending a couple events so we’ll see and I’ll definitely write about them. Parties are interesting footage but I like to keep some things hidden from everyone, haha.

    JB…trust me you don’t want to. I stand there smile and laugh a lot during it and it’s awkward. I’m a goof on camera.

    Pam, the on-snows will definitely have footage and I really want to involve more review footage but as a one-woman show it’s tough for me to get help. I will try my best and I love the park sessions…I’ll work on that. I have an idea coming up for park that I want to do so stay tuned on that.

    Wake, that’s a rad feature on your site! I’ll have to check that out!

    I just got of the nike boots cause my 32’s failed me. They are super sick. as long as they fit ur feet right of course. good all mountain boots. they feel alot different from 32’s where the boots are somewhat minimalist in the feel while the nike’s feel like they have some substance which is dope! try a pair bro!
