Sam Tuor
Having the home hill advantage means that Sam Tuor knows all the angles when it comes to shooting Mt. Bachelor. This video focuses on some of the Northwest’s best shreds as they annihilate Bachelor’s Outback zone. Skylar Thornton opens Sam’s show with a barrage of booter tricks. From there, Johnny Malanga backside double tweaks the 7 Springs gap hip. Superpark Standouts Scott Vine, Scott Blum, Pat Burgener and Ben Bilocq do have cameos in this edit but they appear sparingly while the brothers Robinson (Aaron and Jason), Nicki Weiss, Forrest Devore and other Cascade crushers carry the edit. Though not a Northwesterner, Blake Paul shouldn’t go without mention as he enjoys the more lap friendly side of Superpark® 15.

Keep The Change
Eastern Boarder, the legendary shop behind the much-anticipated “Keep the Change” film has done it again with their Superpark® Showdown submission. By “done it again,” we mean focused simply on shredding, rather than fancy editing tactics and post-production facades. In other words, “Keep the Change” keeps it simple with some of the best riding we’ve seen in an edit thus far. One of the reasons that it may be some of the best riding we’ve seen is because there’s such a large quantity of it. Seriously, this video has more riders than all the other edits put together, and that’s attributed to the man behind the camera, Mr. Colton Feldman; a top-notch guy. Colton was running around Superpark® as a man on a mission. His mission was to capture more riding than any other videographer in attendance, and in our opinion, he succeeded…triumphantly. Sit back and watch (in order) Peter Line, Pat Burgener, Ted Lavoie, Riley Nickerson, Parker Duke, Max Warbington, Ben Bilocq, Scott Vine, Seth Hill, Blake Geis, Sam Taxwood, Griffin Siebert, Blake Paul, Gus Warbington, Matt Belzile, Jeff Kramer, Ted Borland, Scott Blum, a sans-highback Alex Stathis, LNP, Alex Beebe, Dylan Dragotta, Tanner Davidson, Jake Kuzyk, Forest Baliey, and a special ender from the Shawn Farmer.
