2006 was the first year I got twin tips and eventually found out about and joined NS. Then in the summer of 2007 I met Scrappy Joe after commenting on a skate video he uploaded here. In 2008, I bought a Canon GL2 from Kohl Schoeing and from then on I was hooked.
Any active members who were here 10 years ago probably remember New Intelligent Group. That was a big inspiration for filming and making videos along with the stuff Landis Tanaka was creating. A nostalgic memory from that era was the Tramdock
promotions at the beginning of edits.
Since 2006, I've created hundreds of videos and a couple longer movie projects. Having a free range of music selection has always been one of the most fun parts of editing. This is something I am still passionate about and find the most exciting about continuing to produce media. Creating soundtracks that feel like being at a concert.
Some of my old posts are good, some definitely aren't. The thing I don't respect the most out of my old posts are the ones that are whiny and arrogant. For example:
I understand the message I was trying to communicate there but think it was presented a bit poorly. Skiing in the city is something I really value due to convenience. If there's snow outside and you own a pair of skis, go out and enjoy it. This doesn't have to mean hitting urban and crazy handrails but skiing is much more accessible when you can ride the hills around your neighborhood than having to dedicate a whole day to commuting to a ski resort.
My visions now are the same as they were when I first started uploading videos here. To go ski on fresh snow, listen to good music, and have fun with friends. The lifestyle can be really simple and it think it's valuable to strive to keep it that way as you continue to get older.
