Forest Bailey is one of the best all-around snowboarders on the planet. Forest can shred pow one day at Mt. Baker, hop a plane the next day to Quebec and jib with Louif Paradis, fly to Jackson Hole to land double corks with Blake Paul, and then travel to Japan to film the ender of his video part. And this is essentially what Forest had to do the past season after getting hurt in January and spending most of the winter on the couch. With limited time, Forest still figured out a way to pump out an unreal part that is balanced between rails and backcountry. His creativity and fun outlook on snowboarding made him a favorite to travel with for almost everyone and his never-give-up attitude to this past winter landed him on the cover of the SFD special issue with a massive ollie in Japan. Here is Forest’s uncut footage from last winter.
With every video and video part that drops there are countless shots and endless moments that never see the light of day and The SNOWBOARDER Movie: SFD was no exception. Sometimes, some of the rider’s favorite shots or filmer’s favorite angles don’t always make the final cut. Whether they didn’t quite fit in the song, another angle was used, or a certain trick was done again, there’s always great stuff that is talked about by the riders and people involved, but other than that, it’s as if it never existed.
This year, we decided to tap into the computers and pull out everyone’s unedited timelines and hunt down the treasures that, for whatever reason, didn’t make it in or were cut short. SFD Uncut will let you into the edit room and see more from every rider.
Music By Jason Bayne.
