Rejected Edits: Holiday EditionBy Jeremiah Paquette • Nov 5th, 2011 • Category: Features, Latest, Rejected Edits, Videos
How do you know holiday season has begun in the snowboard world? Themed edits. Just because you have costumes, tinted filters, and spooky music does not mean your edit is worth publishing on the internet. Hopefully this batch of rejects will be the last to feature tube edits and we can jump right back into shaky POV powder and sloppy obscure park edits.
The Board Syndicate â€“ Halloween Special
I wanted this edit to be sick, I really did. A good theme edit is needed every now and then. But after about a minute and a half of zeaches, tapped presses and weak bs 180s off I was ready to give up hope. You nearly drew me back in with all that lifestyle/set up/anticipation building footage. Then blew it with a weak fs boardslide and soggy method. Cut. Unfortunately like a lot of snowboarders you put more effort into your outfits than you did your riding.
A-Bay Ham Squad Halloween
I think in this instance you meant for â€œhamâ€ to be read in the theatrical sense, or
- Ham: Noun; an unskilled actor who over acts (i.e. clip at 2:00)
Itâ€™s nice to see Buck 90 finally moving on from CT and MA. They canâ€™t seem to shake their uncanny knack of making sloppy edits though. Between the different frame sizes and the effect that is, what I imagine a girls vomit would look like if she just blew peter the pumpkin eater; discolored and with flecks of pubic hair, I had a hard time watching the whole thing. Luckily rat ass is pretty good at sliding rails and saved your edit a little bit of dignity.
Preseason Corrugated Pipe Snowboarding
This edit fits Halloween perfectly. This is the type of edit that gives me nightmares thinking about having to watch. The tittle alone gives me an ulcer. You didnâ€™t seriously try and pass off that last stunt as a landed trick did you? Come on boys. Once you guys stop beating each other off over how sick your new camera is you might be able to learn how to snowboard, maybe.
Tyrol Basin Preseason Patch
I get it, its Halloween so you used the Ghost Busters theme song, clever. Your edit is still terrible and no amount of catchy nostalgic music is going to save it. You guys need to take a few laps in between all those rails because you obviously can barely stand up on your snowboard, never mind jumping onto and sliding skillfully across a feature. This was by far some of the squirreliest snowboarding Iâ€™ve seen in a coons age. I would rather watch amateur girl snowboarders hit an urban quad kink than have to watch anything like this edit ever again.
Ahhhh Lemi. Look how far weâ€™ve come. Just a few years ago you tried to have me kicked off a certain video hosting website. Then this spring asked me if I would get on your new video hosting site and use some of my finer words to â€œscare awayâ€ the less than desirable edits. And now, I sit here, getting paid to reject you, life is good. Now about the edit. Nobody needs another slippery Susan tube edit. I like the shameless plugs for Vita Coco though, maybe they will be naÃ¯ve enough not to hate watching this edit and give you some free drinks. And to finish it off, a quick check in at the â€œthereâ€™s no low like Ludlowâ€ skatepark. The only thing more painful on the eyes than that skatepark is this edit.
