Words like “raw” are often thrown around hastily to describe edits, clips, and riding style, but few videos really embody the untethered proclivity that draws all of us into ripping turns season after season. Last spring the Volcom crew was busy doing what they do best, on a van trip throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic with stops at Superpark 19, Eastern Boarder’s Last Call and Rhode Island’s Yawgoo Valley; riding away from the impossible in the Midwest; and sending it way past sunset at Mammoth during The Launch. The collective snowboarding by the Stone Army is unfiltered, loose, and stocked with the hard-to-describe quality that anyone who spends most of their time strapped into a snowboard will immediately recognize. This short movie keeps you glued to the screen for the entire ten minutes, so sit back and take it in. Featuring Benny Milam, Jake Selover, Reid Smith, Zach Normandin, Lyon Farrell, Brock Crouch, Chandler Hunt, Cody Warble, Merrick Joyce, Parker Szumowski, Mary Rand, Richie Conklin, Mike Ravelson, Scott Blum, Frank Knab, and Jamie Lynn.
