Freebord Produced Short Film

By July 18, 2009May 19th, 201426 Comments

Freebord is making a professionally produced short film this summer, and we’re looking for riders to fill in the ranks.  In fact, we’ve got 5 round trip plane tickets to give away to riders outside of SF who got what it takes (sorry, USA only).

3 of those tickets will be given out by pro team riders Justin Oliver, Mike Hoppe and Bob Glashan based on the talent they find on the USA Represent Tour (July 24-August 2).   So if you’re in UT, CO, WA, or OR you got a leg up.  Show up to a ride and show the pros what you got.  If they say you make the cut, we’ll fly your ass out to SF for the shoot.

Filming Dates: August 15-16, 2009
Where: San Francisco (where else?)

The other 2 tickets will be given out by Freebord based on a casting call video contest:

Freebord Short Film Casting Assignment:

Complete three (3) 360s in 30 seconds, coming to a complete stop, all while (a) holding a full cup of any liquid beverage, (b) wearing a helmet, and (c) riding down a sidewalk.

Please submit your video entries to [email protected] by Monday, Aug 3rd for consideration in our upcoming film.

Note: we’re looking for control, maneuverability and smoothness, NOT speed.  We want riders that can handle tight terrain, ride in and out of switch, and throw 180’s and 360’s with smooth control.

Note, Note: If you’re riding is good enough but you’re not one of the lucky 5 that gets a plane ticket, we’ll let you know.  If that’s the case, you’re more than welcome to come if you can do so on your own nickel.

Note, Note, Note: Don’t think your riding is good enough to be caught on film?  Don’t even ride a Freebord?  Come and join us anyway.  You can drink some beers from the sidewalk and check out the spectacle.  Trust us, you’ll want to see what we got coming.  Everyone is welcome to come out and watch the filming.


Progression and innovation is what drives us. Through years of evolution and rider driven design, Freebord has engineered a setup that rides exactly like a snowboard on pavement.
