HIGH OCTANE: A Short Film Starring Travis Rice, Austen Sweetin, Robin Van Gyn and more

Next Up

Usually I’m pretty biased towards ski videos because I’m a skier and I think skiing is sick. But every once in a while someone will show me a snowboarding film and I’ll watch it silently, sigh to myself, and wish that I could do what they were doing. High Octane just happens to be one of those films. It’s eight and a half minutes of the world’s best snowboarders in the world’s best locations hitting one dream line after another. So now I’m sitting here wishing I could surf snow like Austen Sweetin, Sean Lucey, Robin Van Gyn, Travis Rice, Rusty Ockenden, Chris Rasman, Phil Hansen and Brandon Reis do.

But don't take it from me, I'm just a skier. Listen to Austen:

“Two weeks of Japan’s deepest and lightest snow filled our days with endless mountain waves and then we set out to film two days of pillow-bashing, leg-burning pow smashing boarding with Travis Rice at Stellar Heli in BC. There were a few days in Whistler and Alpental scattered in between and now we proudly present to you HIGH OCTANE. Press play, get stoked, grab your board and go psycho!”

Spend a couple minutes, or hours, looking through these guys' Instagram's.
