Snowboard Realms
With a name that has become as synonymous with viral snowboarding media as it has with bacon-wrapped hot dogs and donkey shows, TJ Schnieder and his Snowboard Realms rules the roostin’ when it comes to video blogging. Here, TJ, a seven year Superpark attendee–and his colleague Leo Hoorn collaborate on an emo rock-infused edit. Not since 2007’s First Kiss have so many Capita team riders appeared together in one video. This time though, the hi-8 has been replaced by HD! Featuring the talents of Scott Stevens, Brandon Cocard, Sage Kotsenberg, “MVP” Murray Hodgson, Jessica Kimura, Niklas Mattsson, Jared Dawoud, Andrew Burns and Dustin Craven. **Warning** This video contains a frontside invert with an obscene amount of foreplay.

Video Gypsy
If you’ve never heard of Buddy Back 7 or Johnny Frontflip, then you’re not alone. SNOWBOARDER checked the Superpark credentialed riders list and couldn’t find them there either. It wasn’t until we Googled said names ’til we realized that Nick Cater, the auteur behind Video Gypsy pulled an Ellis Island and just used whatever titles he felt like to denote the riders. This means that you’ll have to do some sleuthing to figure out that Buddy Back 7 at 1:02 is actually Marc Swoboda or Johnny Frontflip at 1:59 is actually Ted Borland. While your sleuthing, you might want to look up Shakira’s video for the song “Gypsy” where her pouty lips are put to good use as she bares her navel while also baring her harmonica-playing soul!
