Kickstarter for Definition: Snowboarding a Film by Matt Devino

Definition: Snowboarding is a feature length documentary about what snowboarding means to those who live it. Filmmaker Matt Devino is currently running a Kickstarter to get the project off the ground. This documentary film project explores the definition of snowboarding from the perspective of those who live it.

The film has been a passion project of Devino’s for the past year, working on it without any funding of any kind. The goal of Definition: Snowboarding is to show the public just how amazing Snowboarding is, hopefully inspiring people to go snowboarding for the first time, and reinvigorating people who already ride to get out there and ride their boards.

Devino has been interviewing some of Snowboarding’s biggest names for the film, filming snowboarding footage exclusively for the film, and now it’s time to raise funds to complete the film. Devino need funds for things such as travel to locations to film exciting new Snowboarding footage exclusively for the film, and paying for camera crew and editor time. This round of funding is looking exclusively for production funds so Devino can get out there and film some amazing footage for the film this winter. Definition: Snowboarding will be an in-depth look into all of the genres of snowboarding through the eyes of those who live it.

“We plan to create a film with the support of core snowboarding that will welcome the general public into our lives,” said Devino, “…and to share the complete picture of riding rather that just the homogenized competitive X Games style of riding most people associate with snowboarding. Ultimately, we want to inspire new people to go snowboarding for the first time, and reinvigorate current riders to get out there and enjoy their boards more often and continue to live the dream.”

Definition: Snowboarding is two year project to be released in the Fall of 2015. It will include dozens of interviews and document all aspects of riding and the lifestyle that encompasses it. Interviews will be shot over the course of 2014, and exclusive riding footage will be shot during the winter of 2014/2015.

Europe’s Indoor Snowboard Parks


Flow Snowboarding Team Athlete Drayden Gardner took a flight across the pond to hit the UK’s SnowDome in Tamworth, Stafford. If you are planning a backpacking trip through Europe this summer, you might want to pack your goggles and spring gloves… there’s riding to be done. Europe’s indoor snowboard parks keep riders shredding 365 days a year. The SnowDome for of over 19 years has been referred to many in the UK as the spiritual home of the UK freestyle scene. Their freestyle parks are definitely on point, with a few beginning features for those looking to progress to the next level.

For more information on SnowDome, please visit:

The largest indoor park in the UK is located in Milton Keynes at Snozone. Snozone has park nights every Thursday and Friday night and hosts freestyle events such as Parkstrife which has extra enhanced features for riders as they pump in great music. Snozone’s Who’s Afraid of the Park event focuses on beginners to freestyle, allowing them to learn from qualified instructors and sponsored riders.

Flow Snowboarding supporter Johnny de Jong lives in the Netherlands, and is an avid snowboarder at Holland’s SkiDome. Our next video blog in a couple days will feature a video edit from SkiDome.

“I live seven miles from an indoor track,” explained de Jong. “So it is easy for me to go snowboarding. SkiDome is the very first indoor court of Netherlands. There are a few indoor tracks… a fun park with various rails, ‘jumps’ and of course the big air bag to catch you. The SkiDome is my home ground, but it’s not the biggest one. Check out SnowWorld and look for Landgraaf. That is a nice one.”

Every cloud has a silver lining. Flow and the rest of the snowboarding world is bummed that we do not get to cheer on our favorite American at Sochi this year. However, everything happens for a reason and we believe that 2014 will be a great year for Scotty. Without the pressure of the Olympics, Scotty will now be able to travel and ride amazing backcountry locations. What does that mean for his social media followers? Amazing photos, videos, and content that we can spend hours watching, re-posting, and drooling over. Expect big things from Mr. Lago in 2014.

The term “Off the Grid” doesn’t even begin to describe Mike. This guy is as rugged as they come. He lives and breathes backcountry adventure and has traveled to the most remote places in the world. Mike doesn’t need much to survive. Give him a Flow setup, some food, and a GoPro and he delivers social media gold. Mike’s latest venture is his “Stoked Storm Ready” project where he built a house on a flatbed trailer. He is currently traveling all over North America chasing storms and snow.
