Nov. 15th) It’s that time of year when all the inspirational shred flicks drop, the premiere events start fueling the fire and the NYC on-snow community gets together to send a proper cheers to the upcoming season. On that note, Oakley’s got something for ya… their latest film Snowboarding: For ME premiers at Sunshine Cinemas Tue November 4th.
With times a’ changing, and the medium with which we receive our seasonal snow films constantly in flux, Oakley’s breaking some ground with their decision to premiere this film on ABC Nov. 23rd. That’s right… network television. The film will also be available to download on iTunes the day of the event. So now you can download it on your phone, stream it on your desktop at work, or wait for it to hit TV. So why come down to Sunshine on a Tuesday night? You know why! The energy will be live, film always looks better on the big screen and a grip of riders will from the film will be present. It’s a celebration!!!
As much as times change, there’s still something nostalgic about the good ol’ days, and that’s partially why Oakley’s night in NYC is going to go off like the classic NYC Snowboard Film premiers of the 90’s. It’s a first come first, free admission, no saving seats, limited availability scenario. Yea, you’re gonna wanna get there early! The doors will open at 7pm, film starts at 8pm and the riders will be hanging around for signings, conversation and energy catalysts directly after the film ends.
One thing that will probably catch your eye is the insanely notable names on their team. Oakley’s current roster reads like snowboarding’s version of the NBA 92′ Dream Team, with the “Names You Know”. Just replace Jordan, Magic, Ewing, Malone, & Barkley with Danny Kaas, Nicolas Müller, Terje Haakonsen, Kazu Kokubo & of course Shaun White. Add in JP Walker as your Larry Bird, Mikkel Bang as your Scottie Pippen, then take your pick from Eero Ettala, Heikki Sorsa, Jake Blauvelt, Mark McMorris, Stale Sandbech & Torstein Horgmo to round out your roster. Oakley has become snowboarding’s Chuck Daly, and their ready to show what their team can do!
