Last winter, FamilyShred and Ignite Media Works teamed-up to film 13 year old Colorado snowboarder, Chase Blackwell. Chase has been riding for over 9 years and is sponsored by FamilyShred, Never Summer Industries, 686, Union Binding Company and Giro. He has had much success as an amature/pro rider in competitions, including the 2013 Burton European Junior Open in Laax, Switzerland (he placed 5th in Pipe and 16th in Slopestyle).
Chase became a FamilyShred sponsored rider in late 2012 and we hooked him up with a sweet video edit! We filmed Chase for three days at three different mountains in Colorado; Keystone Resort, Breckenridge Resort and Arapahoe Basin. As you can see in the video the weather didn’t exactly co-operate with us but we had the time of our lives filming Chase, none the less! Chase’s riding style is smooth yet aggressive, he always maintains a positive attitude and has remarkable charisma …You’ll hear a lot of laughing in the video! Our goal was to showcase Chase’s different disciplines (Slopestyle and Pipe) as well as capture his personality. We think we got it!?
Chase spent several weeks training over the past Summer including camp at Mt. Hood, OR. He is currently dialing in his 900′s and is looking forward to competing with his team in the 2013-2014 Season. We can’t wait for the snow to start falling again and you can be sure that we’ll be getting those 9′s on film this year!
We hope you enjoy the video and if you have any comments or questions please contact Bug Stroope at email@example.com or Dan Olsavsky from Ignite Media Works. If you want to lean more about Chase Blackwell, click here to view his FamilyShred Profile.
