Because of Snowboarding Series – Episode 1 – Hana Beaman from Ride Snowboards on Vimeo.
Hana Beaman is bad ass. She rides a motorcycle, travels the world, & rides gnarly shit. Our new ‘Because of Snowboarding’ series launched today with Hana’s segment that gives you a short glimpse into her world. Learn why she loves snowboarding so much and what it means to her. We’ll launch a new segment every week on the ride site so stay tuned.
About the Series
The series features Ride’s Austin Hironaka, Hana Beaman, Alex Cantin, Marco Feichtner, Sebastien Toutant, and Jake Blauvelt. Video segments were shot around the globe, from Marco’s hometown stomping grounds in Austria, to Seb’s haunts of Mont Saint-Sauveur and Whistler, and Hana’s search of the next best line. Each short film is dedicated to highlighting a different pro rider, and captures the personal stories and intimacy each rider has with snowboarding.
Because of Snowboarding is directed and produced by Crispin Cannon and Shaun Anderson of The Solidarity Union.

Jake on a swallow tail? WTF I know it’s a prototype but Jake gets all the cool stuff before it even officially exists. Oh the perks of being a pro snowboarder… Maybe us mere mortal Ride employees will get to ride it soon. If you want to get a glimpse at what Ride will do, keep an eye on what Jake is riding. When he’s not riding his Berzerker, he’s our backcountry R&D department for new designs. Here is proof that he earns his turns!

DISTORTED REALITY TEASER from Pirate Movie Production on Vimeo.
We are proud to present our latest action snowboard film and want to invite you to join a surreal trip, following a tight group of riders such as Gigi Rüf, Marco Feichtner, Kalle Ohlson, Elias Elhardt, Fredrik Evensen, Sami Luhtanen, Werni Stock, Niels Schack and Martin Kalijola.
After the great success of “Unique8“, the goal was to top the production values and bring you an unforgettable snowboard viewing experience, either on the big screen in cinemas or on your laptop screen – Red cameras, dollies, steady cams and helicopters – you name it!
Thanks to all the Ride Dealers who came to our Ride High Clinic at Ride’s World Headquarters in Seattle, WA last week. We had a great time and hope you did too. See you all on the Hill this Winter.
