Corduroy Lifestyles Presents Corduroy Shorts #7 Premature Jibs

Premature Jibulation. from Corduroy Lifestyles on Vimeo.

A yearly affair of the lightest of heart and greatest of desires. This Rome SDS conjured event is in it 7th year and brings some early jammin fun to the first and sometimes not first day of the season. Hot to the dog are the shredders who so passionately throw down in travel and tricks to participate the most key element to this Jibulation. Thanks to Rich Whinnie, Mt Holly Mike and Josh, Ohio crew, Michigan Peeps, Indiana heads, and Kevin Castanheira for this Short.

Be sure to check Kevins Filming and Editing skills in his release Sooner or Later.

Mt Holly Premature Edit

Premature Jibulation 2010//romesds from Jake Breed on Vimeo.

Wasn't able to make it over to the Mitt for this years PreJib but a partner in crime Rich Whinnie held it down with classic form. Homies, shredders, random skiers who haven't figured it out yet, Red Bulls, winners with no losers, hot dawgs, Rome SDS, and Mt. Holly. Sounds so sweet. Here's a nice edit from constant contributor Jake Breed. Thanks to him for also helping out on that filmer/editor/ripper front.

Happy Monday.

Good Pop.

Ollies in honor of Bernard Isaacs

Backside One


Early on BS 1, 3's and taps were warm ups on the lower heights. 

Garrett popin

3 1/2ft Squared up. 

Shane Handling 4ft. This was heavy. 

Top Pop. Shane, Nate, and TJ

Victor set out to pay respects to his Grandfather who has Alzheimer's. He came up with a Ollie contest to bring people together in a loose and fun event. It's just you, your board, and bar set at a fixed height. No judge, no judgement, just pop, clear, land, ride away. That or knock the bar to the snow in defeat. 
Simple as snowboarding. There was a great crew of fellas and a lady each putting their snap to the test. Early on, many variations of ollies were clearing the lower heights. Once everyone had plenty of attempts to warm the legs, the event kicked off at the lowest setting. Quickly it was up to 3ft, a solid group popped that. On to that 3 1/2ft ollie which left only 5 standing above the next height of 4ft. With one attempt and legs wavering, Shane Ruprecht popped the 4ft with his new smile. I'll venture to say Victor's Grandpa would've been proud of the overall effort and the great times many shared. 
Thanks to Viktor Simco for a great event, Vans Bob for supporting, Nate for shooting sick foto's, Wild for the energy, and the riders for supporting a fine event. 
This is snowboarding.

Breaking VG News..(News Sounder In Your Head)..

This just came across the news blotter...For Immediate Release and Consumption.

Oct 31, 2010:
VIDEOGRASS.com announces acquisition of second video production company with plans to launch 2 unrelated snowboard action titles for Fall 2011.
Videograss, the makers of Bon Voyage (2010) and Videograss (2009) announced today the acquisition of the crew that brought you In Color (2010), Get Real (2009), and These Days (2008). Videograss founders Mikey Leblanc, Darrell Mathes, Nima Jalali, Mike Hakker, and Lance Hakker have brought in the directors of both projects, Justin Meyer and Joe Carlino, as co-owners of Videograss. For the 2011 season Videograss will be launching two major titles with two separate crews. Each video maintaining the look and feel that you’ve come to expect from both Justin Meyer and Joe Carlino. Along with Joe come Gary Milton and Hayden Rensch, both formerly of Transworld Snowboarding. Videograss is also proud to announce the addition of Eddie Grams formerly of Variety Pack and Riley Erickson formerly of House of 1817 to fill out the roster of accomplished filmers.
"Adding the entire crew that delivered my favorite video of 2010, In Color which was made by Joe Carlino, Gary Milton, and Hayden Rensch, is a huge step for Videograss.  We feel Videograss makes one of the top 5 snowboarding videos in the world yearly, but adding this new title to our business really brings in a huge element to Videograss.  We have now added a big mountain and backcountry element to our video offering.  More importantly we have added a production crew that is deep in experience, with all the filmers being highly motivated and talented individuals that previously owned and or started their own video in past seasons. We feel as a company we can now deliver 2 of the top 5 videos for Winter 2011.”  
-       Mikey LeBlanc.
"Ever since our first Bear videos, Joe and I knew we would work together again sooner or later. Now is the time, and I couldn't be more excited. He gets to keep doing his thing, and myself as well. We got the best snowboarders in the game, and we get to bring in our favorite filmers to match. I can't wait to see what Joe and crew put together this year!"
-       Justin Meyer
“I have been a fan of Videograss and those guys since day one, they are my homeys. I'm hyped to be a part of what they are doing for snowboarding. I hope this whole change can bring the entire snowboard community together as a whole!”
