There’s a lot I could write about this project. It’s interesting to revisit and try and come up with an explanatory description. For everyone involved this was much more than a snowboard video; a deeper feeling lies beneath the surface. In winter 2011-12, Aaron Robinson set out to do his own thing alongside videographer Sam Tuor, his brother Jason Robinson, Alex Yoder, Kyle Miller, Skylar Thornton, Ben Lynch, Tim Eddy, myself, and our friends. I don’t think he had much of a plan, he never really did, living spontaneously and sort of floating through life. He was one of those people you look at and wonder how he really does it. Aaron gave me a chance to film in the backcountry and travel to down to Chile. He showed me the importance of just putting everything aside and winging it. I am forever grateful for the things he left with me and the rest of the world. Aaron Manifested this video and left his legacy with us. This movie came out in the fall off 2012 but was taking down do to some problems with a copyright issue. We thought it was time for the video to resurface. Happy Birthday A-Rob!
“Snowboarding is much more than banger after banger, it’s a journey, it’s euphoria, it’s pain, it’s excitement, it’s fear, it’s meeting new people, it’s sending it, it’s SNOWBOARDING .” – Aaron Robinson
