Shred is directed by David Mitchell, the director of the films UKM: The Ultimate Killing Machine and Copper Mountain. The movie Shred is a story about two washed up pro snowboarders named Max (Dave England) and Eddy (Jason Bothe), who back in the 1990s, were at the top of their game while appearing on countless extreme sports magazines. Now that they are past their prime and the fame long gone, Max and Eddy are working at their boring jobs as ski lift operators at Stubby Peaks Ski Hill. After years of hard living, the snowboarding itch hits them again as they plot on how to regain their status as kings of the hill. In order to take the top prize at the upcoming snowboarding event, they decide to open their own snowboarding camp, and form their own snowboarding team. Max and Eddy share their off-the-wall wisdom with the up and coming young snowboarders to regain their former glory.
