Stefan rides for 35th Avenue, and I ride for/manage the snowboard team. He won an invite at a local contest to a big snowboard event called Superpark that happened down at Mt. Bachelor at the end of this winter. During the trip my car had to get towed, we almost didn’t make registration, I had to learn how to operate a brand new camera, and we had a gigantic condo all to ourselves. Fast forward a few weeks and I put all of the footage of Stefan together into one short edit and submitted it to Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark Showdown. Right now it is in the qualifying stage of eliminations and currently has a short lead after one day of voting. In case you don’t have facebook and can’t look at the video on their site, here’s the video, and it is followed by what Snowboarder Magazine said about me, Stefan, and Figure8productions.
Snowboarder Mag.com’s words: “The final contestant in the 2011 Superpark® Video Showdown LCQ is Kelson Mcclung and Figure8productions. Unlike every other entry, Kelson chose to focus his filming on just one rider. The subject of Kelson’s short was Stefan Krumm, an unsponsored shred from Washington who received his Superpark® 15 wildcard spot from his performances at the Holy Oly and The Launch. Krumm is loose to say the least. When it comes to boardin’ his bravado takes point for his brain. In turn his style is compelling. While not as polished or diverse as other Superpark® Showdown submissions Kelson and Krumm’s colab isn’t without it’s simplistic charms. If you are so inclined to root for the underdog then go to the video and “like” it to help Kelson Mcclung dart his way into the 2011 Superpark® Video Showdown.”
