This Is Trouble: Trevor Andrew

I like this video... a lot. Not just because Trevor is a friend of mine, or I'm a big fan of the director Sebastien Zanella's photography, or that it was shot well. But because Trevor Andrew brought up some things about snowboarding that I think are getting lost a bit in the "sport" these days. These two lines stuck out to me, "The general public many not understand yet that snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing is a culture, it's not just a sport" and "In order to be a snowboarder, skateboarder, or surfer... you have to have some kind of artistic vision, because there's no rules... there's no THIS IS THE WAY YOU DO IT." It was really refreshing to hear that come out of someone's mouth. It seems that people on the outside who don't really understand the culture side of it try to create these events with so many rules and regulations in order to make snowboarding make more sense... to them at least, and the reason why most of us started snowboarding in the first place gets lost in that mix. Before I go off on a tangent I will just leave it at that. But besides that this video does give you a pretty cool look at Trevor in general, so you should watch it. -Laura Austin (Online Editor Of SNOWBOARDER Magazine)
