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.
Flow Snowboarding is excited about how this film is coming together. It speaks the common thread within snowboarding that ties us all together. Let us know what you think of the film trailer on Social media.

Flow Snowboarding had a chance to sit down with Celia Miller over her busy summer. We talked about her path as a professional snowboarder; from her East Coast roots as a child, to her life now living in Colorado. We also had a chance to ask Miller about her travels last winter and her European road trip this summer with her good friend Sarka Pancochova.
Where did you originally grow up?
I was born in Maryland and grew up in West Virginia before moving to Connecticut in high school.
Where do you currently live?
I live in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Did you grow up skiing first or have you always been snowboarding?
I went skiing once when I was like 10 but other than that I started with snowboarding at my local resort in Connecticut.
What’s your current board, boots and bindings preference?
Right now I am on the Flow Jewel and Minx bindings. I love how versatile the Jewel is for riding park or riding pow if it dumps. And the Minx bindings are so simple and comfortable. Everyone is always jealous of my bindings. And I like the Deelite Coiler Boot. It is light weight and comfortable.
What would you consider your home mountain to be?
Breckenridge always feels like home. I love Colorado and don’t see myself leaving anytime soon.
Other than snowboarding, what other kind of sports or hobbies do you participate in?
I love surfing.. well I guess its a love/hate relationship. Its such a challenge for me and it takes me back to learning to snowboard. I want to just jump in the water and master it but it is not easy. I also have been taking up rock climbing but i have some fears there that definitely limit me so its humbling for sure.
What was your favorite memory from last winter?
I had a couple great powder days at Vail last year. I wasn’t filming or shooting so it was just one of those personal days that kept me smiling for a while.
Anywhere you are looking forward to riding next year?
I would really like to spend some time in Wyoming and Montana this year. I have been talking with Sarka about some southern hemisphere trips as well.
Via Instagram we saw you went on a European trip this summer, travelling with Sarka and Courtney. Where did you all travel through and how was that trip?
The three of us wanted to go on a trip that was a real Euro vacation. Since Sarka was nursing a knee injury it was easier for us to fly there. She showed us around her country and we drove to Austria and Croatia and basically just worked on our tans. Austria is one of my favorite places in the world and never fails to impress me. And Croatia was so pretty with such clear water.
Where was your favorite place to travel to not related to snowboarding?
I went to Nicaragua this spring for a month to surf. It was super low key there but there are amazing breaks. I got totally absorbed in the beach life and can’t wait to go back.
Where was the furthest you’ve ever traveled in order to snowboard?
I flew to Argentina for a 4 day promo in the city of Buenos Aries where we hit a scaffolding jump in a park. That was an interesting trip.
What are your favorite Apres Ski activities?
Coffee… Nothing better then sitting at a cafe drinking a cappuccino after a day of shredding.
Any advice you would like to give to all the aspiring younger snowboarders out there?
Just have fun! If your not enjoying it then your not doing it right.
Anything else you’d like to say to the Flow support or customers?
Flow rules. If you ride the gear then you know why its so good! I’m stoked to be part of the family and ride gear that makes snowboarding what it should be. Awesome!
Looks like Celia Miller and Sarka Pancochova might be planning one more trip to the southern hemisphere before winter switches poles again.

We here at Flow sat down with Olympic snowboarder Sarka Pancochova to discuss her lifestyle during the summer months, breaking down what she does to stay fit and refreshed for when the snow starts flying again.
During the summer season, it’s hard to find snow. What are some things that you do to keep yourself fresh and having fun when you can’t snowboard?
My season is usually so hectic that as soon as the summer hits I need to get some sun and go to the beach for while. So I started surfing a lot and also Rock Climbing. I like spending my time outside when the weather is nice. Also I try to do yoga in the morning, everyday. It keeps me going after all the activities during the day. When it’s not nice, I go to CrossFit for my leg workout.
Do you have any training programs or exercises that you do to keep your body fit for snowboarding?
I do a lot of compensation exercises with bosu ball and gym balls and lot of balance exercises to keep me knees strong. I don’t have any scheduled program but I try to do something everyday to keep myself as fit as possible during the off season.
You have been practicing Yoga for a while now. How does Yoga help your snowboarding and your fitness?
Yoga is lot of balancing and also it’s kind of a moving meditation. So it helps me to empty my mind when I need it most… during the contest. By practicing my mind I can perform better. On a higher level.
What are things that you do to keep your mind fresh and excited about snowboarding during the off season?
As I said yoga mostly, and also I visualize my new tricks so I can feel better when I decide to try them on snow. Because I know how to do them in my head.
Do you do any surfing? If so, what are your favorite spots/locations to go?
I went to only few places and I liked Puerto Rico a lot and Nicaragua was pretty awesome.
Is there anything else that you do during the off season?
I drink a lot of beer and wine and enjoy myself. Haha…
