SFD is not just a saying. It’s a movement. An ideology. An approach. A choice made deliberately to dedicate one’s life to snowboarding’s counter-culture philosophy. Last winter, SNOWBOARDER Magazine hand-picked sixteen riders whom we believed to encompass this philosophy and sent them around the world to make the best snowboard movie of the year. From Japan to Canada and the United States to Europe, the SFD crew found the deepest powder, the darkest city streets and the most pristine park jumps to showcase their world-renowned skills on and the result is a snowboard film that will be talked about for ages. Tag along as Bryan Fox, Forest Bailey, Hans and Nils Mindnich, Jess Kimura, Mark Sollors, Ethan Deiss, Jake Olson-Elm, Scott Blum, Lucas Magoon, Blake Paul, Dustin Craven, Jake Blauvelt, Jess Kimura, Iikka Backstrom, Jake Welch and friends show the world why they’re not just committed to snowboarding…they’re SFD for life.
It’s been 6 years since our first movie dropped. Here’s to all the empty bottles and broken hearts along the way. Enjoy Sanezeta!

DC Groms in Méribel
from Rusty Toothbrush
Ian Matteoli class of 2005 and Benni Fridbjornsson class of 2004 absolutely tore things up at the DC Area43 park last week.
These two mini shredders have been keeping the Rusty Toothbrush crew on our toes.
We sense a big bright future for these 10 and 11 year old rippers.

Life Beyond Walls: Bend, Oregon
from smith optics
Josh Dirksen and Austin Smith have called Bend, Oregon home for over a decade. With Mt. Bachelor in their backyard, there’s plenty of terrain to explore throughout the year. As the Dirksen Derby enters its ninth year, the draw of the friendly competition attracts snowboarders from across the world. As the snow continued to fall throughout the weekend, it allowed for Austin to show new Smith Athlete Louif Paradis around his home resort.
