We are halfway through round 1 of the Superpark Sunday Showdown brackets and three of the four completed challenges have come right down to the closing clicks. With over 50 comments, thousands of views and vocal supporters from both coasts declaring their allegiances, it was a battle to the finish. However, in the end, it was Matt Roberge who took the cake, inching ahead in the final moments. This proves that unlike a ballot cast for the presidency or other important offices your Superpark Sunday Showdown vote counts. If you see a video that gets you hyped, make sure to check back every day and show support to the crew who blew your hair back. Filmers will thank you for it and in the case of Matt Roberge, they’ll even buy you a beer

What’s your thoughts, who’s going to take it this week?
Variety Pack With a name like Eddie Grams, you’d think his occupation would involve weighing powder rather than filming snowboarders riding it, but this Salt Lake local has made a push in winters prior as one of the most promising up-and-coming HD hype-men in the game by producing videos like Variety Pack’s newest release The Leak. In this edit, witness Heikki Sorsa’s Superpark debut, Jason Robinson getting rad in plaid, Zak Hale’s underage exploits, Ben Bilocq’s unannounced annihilation, Halldór Helgason’s all-natural knuckledragging, Ted Borland’s man transfer, and a special segment featuring Brandon Hammid at the Roxy Chicken Jam. Action-packed with all the angles, Grams’s Superpark offering is sure to please.
NuuLife Cinema There are a few things Canadians do well: Hockey, binge drinking, donning denim, cooking bacon, road tripping with their shirts off, and snowboarding. The latter of that list is especially relevant to the Nuu Life crew. Making the trek to Mammoth all the way from our neighbor to the north, Nuu Life rolled into Superpark and documented their week down to the minute. Featuring riders like Jody Wachniak, Dustin Craven, Andrew Geeves, Rusty Ockenden, Kevin Griffin, Adam Chuntz, Eric Willett, Mark McMorris, Torgir Bergeim, Robby Balharry, Kael Hill, Eman Anderson, Matt Belzile and many more, Nuu Life gives you a glimpse into these carving Canucks week in Mono County; that is, until they end up in a seaside pokey. But hey, when you leave a gathering that has no rules, adjusting to life on the outside can be a tough task.
