We go behind the scenes with Snowboarder Forrest Burki to see some of his shots from the movie Shred-A-Vision. Forrest gives us some words of inspiration and insight into what he thinks about snowboarding and filming with Wildcard Movies. Forrest has been making his mark in the world of snowboarding with his unique style and interesting take on what tricks to do and where to ride. He is equally at home bombing down urban streets as he is in taking it to the steepest backcountry lines.

Curious Questions and Answers

What’s weird to you? Is your weird normal and your normal weird?

Who am I to judge?

Do you ever make magic while getting wild in a weird way? Explain.

I can neither confirm or deny this

Technology is important. Do you use it? Is your board so technologically advanced that it has become a sentient being with a soul and if so are you worried that it will rebel and enslave you and if so who is riding who?

Is that a question or a statement?

How many backflips did you do today? Are you currently upside down?

Zero today unfortunately

Name your three favorite essentials for going out in “the wild” on a split mission. Three essentials for getting weird? Three essentials for making magic? That’s nine essentials.

No company, good company, a poncho applies to all three. So that’s three essentials.

Who or what do you want to thank? Sponsors, individuals, spirits etc
