Friday was the Boston premiere of Never Summer’s second full-length feature film “Shred ‘Em All” and Ian Post’s “Stitched Up Clipped Up” at Greatest Bar Boston. The place quickly filled with hoodie-clad snowboarders drinking Narragansett tall boys. The films played on giant TV screens behind the bar, to showcase the killer skills of the team riders.
At one point of “Stitched Up Clipped Up,” I saw a little drool in the corner of fellow BUST member Heather Schuler’s mouth as she watched, aghast, as the pro’s grind rail after rail in an urban scene.
“It reminds me of highschool,” Schuler said. “With the rail in the backyard, we would go up and down, up and down.”
“I love how Ian Post’s film is so east coast. It’s got that urban east coast footage, that raw video,” said Andrew Balbo, of Steez Magazine.
I have to say, Steez knows how to throw down for a video premiere. Narrangasett and Jim Beam kept the drinks coming all night. And, swag me out. I’m pretty sure everyone left with a free something– a copy of the film, stickers, coozie, or a t-shirt. One lucky winner left with a free Never Summer snowboard!
Check out these photos of the night taken by Steez.
Never Summer rider Steve Pleines made an appearance as well. He said he prefers riding park over powder as well. He grew up on the east coast riding at Loon and Waterville. Get stoked with some of his riding in “Shred ‘Em All.”
