Absinthe Films - Ready
The incredibly nice people from Absinthe were nice enough to send me over a copy of their latest release titled "Ready," so I'm going to give you my honest opinion on it. Incredibleness. Seriously, year after year, I look forward to Absinthe's shred flicks more than anyone else's. Their style of capturing snowboarding is extremely unique and appreciated by me (and a lot of other people out there i"m sure). The cast of riders in this video is top notch, as always...to name a few; Gigi Ruf, Jeremy Jones, JP Solberg, Romain deMarchi, Mikey LeBlanc, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Annie Boulanger, and Nicolas Mueller. I really enjoyed seeing a full part from JP Solberg again, he's a ripper who hasn't filmed a lot in the past few seasons. Also, I need to mention the soundtrack which is a great mix covering many genres. There's everything from David Bowie to Minor Threat to Oingo Boingo...good stuff. If you haven't had a chance to check out this top shelf shred flick yet then do yourself a favor and go pick it up at your local shop, I guarantee it'll be in heavy rotation to get you through the summer months.
