Powder And Rails

Show Summary

Powder and Rails, created by VBS.TV, tells the story of the early years of snowboarding. As an outgrowth of earlier youth sports such as skateboarding, surfing and skiing, snowboarding attracted many athletes from other sports. Powder and Rails mixes modern interviews with early pioneers of the sport and vintage footage of the athletes snowboarding. Featured in the series is the early all-star snowboarder Damian Sanders, whose gutsy stunts, and neon pants, defined him as one of the greatest snowboarders ever. The series goes on to look into the beginning of snowboarding videos and how they changed the face of the sport. Also interviewed are other industry icons such as Jeff Brushie, the East Coast snowboarder who combined skateboarding and snowboarding into one style, and Jake Burton, one of the earliest makers of snowboards and the man who took on the lawyer-centered culture of skiing to carve out a space for snowboarders.
