We’ll just come right out and say it, Ted Borland is awesome. He’s one of the most genuine guys in snowboarding and whenever you see him on his board, it’s apparent he’s having a really good time (which is what it’s all about). Over the past few years, Ted has been diligently filming video parts with the Think Thank contingent, earning recognition from both his peers and an ever-growing fanbase. Off his board, Ted spends a lot of time contributing to the current state of snowboarding by filming and editing videos for himself and his friends, the likes of the Lunch Ramp Gang, Cobra Dogs, and of course, the Bone Zone. With the recent and hugely unfortunate destruction of the Bone Zone, an iconic and personal place that Ted and others invested a lot into, is temporarily missing from the snowboard landscape. But, we feel 100% confident that however the Utah crew chooses to reinvent their pre-season spot will be even better than before and we’re looking forward to future videos with the Bundyvision POV. As winter 2013-14 ramps up, we tapped Ted to share some of his current song picks to listen to while snowboarding. Enjoy his selections and stay tuned for more from Ted this season.

First Tracks (music that wakes you up): Probably the most recent songs on my computer. I’m constantly looking for new music so it could be anything. Fresh music is always good to start a fresh day. It’s always a different type of music, but right now I’d say its a song by Don Cavalli – “Me and My Baby”
Pow Ballad (favorite song to ride pow to): “Seer”, Witch. Always reminds me of the first part in Escramble (easily one of my favorite pow parts ever), so it gets me really hyped.
Jib Jam (favorite song to jib to): ”Do It”, French Montana, Juicy J, and Project Pat. Ignorant rap music makes me feel like I have way more “gangster style” on rails, haha.
Rock Ride (what song pumps you up the most during a session): “The Plan”, Built to Spill.
