TransWorld SNOWboarding presents 'Origins.' Know the past, see the future. With TransWorld SNOWboarding’s fifth feature film Origins, we set out to find the roots of freestyle snowboarding at five locations around the globe. On our list: The Alps, France; Hokkaido, Japan; Quebec, Canada; Whistler, Canada; Mammoth, USA. In each place, we sought the pioneers that shaped the local scenes and inspired the generations that followed. We strapped in alongside them, listened to the stories of how we got to where we are today. Where we are today. You can see that in the riders who signed on to this journey with us. The riders who are adding their own stories to what the pioneers created. From Japan: Kazu Kokubo, Kohei Kudo, Teddy Koo. From France: Arthur Longo, Victor Daviet, Victor De Le Rue. From Quebec: Frank Bourgeois, Jeremy Cloutier, Jason Dubois. From Whistler: Rusty Ockenden, Matt Belzile, Chris Rasman. From Mammoth: John Jackson, Eric Jackson, Kimmy Fasani. In pursuit of snow, progression, and knowledge, this is our season.
