This video was shot over the course of my season after I had saved up all summer for a descent camera to film with. The problem with being a rider but also having the only good camera to film with is that it becomes tough to get shots, but all my friends helped me out and always back me up. Though some good shots were missed, messed up, or went unfilmed all together, Im soooo stoked on how my season went and the video I got. I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has never been about getting shots, it’s all about getting out and having fun and I know that this winter has been my funnest one yet. From all the traveling I’ve met tons of new friends and seen some really sick skiing. I can’t wait to get back out riding this summer. See you soon Windells!!
