Jake:  As always great vid. 

 

Good luck to Marcus.  Was the last song a tribute to him?

Such a sick video!  I've torn my ACL too and can definitely feel his pain.  Keep up the good work!

Wow, you guys do some huge cliffs... Feelings of inadequacy in 3..2..

 

I don't understand what he did wrong to blow his knee. If you could shed some light on it, that would be great, I shattered my knee cap and sure as hell don't want an ACL keeping me down next season. May as well learn from your mistakes so I don't make the same ones :p

Thanks for the (+) comments all!  I had a lot of fun editing the video and shooting it! I am really glad you guys liked it!
 
 
@Thiago: it was shot mostly on a gopro hd on the adhesive helmet mount (which was surprisingly more stable than I expected).
 
 
 
@Lorian: haha, it was a bit of a tribute, marcus is a wicked smart dude (currently applying to grad school for chemistry), but he definitely has the send it spirit.  that air was our first run of the day in some bad flat light.
 
 
 
@angrysasquatch: the angle i shot that air on was definitely a bad one, it is an air at snowbird commonly called jaws or jaws face.  it's ~35 - 40' and marcus got the bad luck of the draw and landed on some barely covered rock.  the snow was awesomely deep everywhere except where he landed and the impact of the rock on the bottom of his ski ruined his knee pretty bad!
 
 
Thanks again for the (+) vibes everyone! i am hoping to turn out a new, awesome video soon(ly)!
 
^sorry about the bad syntax, running the dev preview of osx 10.7 and the safari in here is a buggy adventure...

haha, that was a collection of airs from an extended period of time :) i just edit out the parts when i am slow and on the ground (more often than not).  thanks for saying that though, definitely makes my ego feel rad.

here is a sweet clip from today's awesome conditions with an air i sent in honor of my favorite technology podcast that was just disbanded.  i think my dorkiness bewildered the people skiing by...
