This mid-season 94′ release from Fall Line Films; « R.P.M. » showcases the new school scene of flannel, big pants and plenty of « butters ». Utilizing a roadtrip format and featuring snow/skate legends Salasnek, Roach and Cardiel; « R.P.M. » takes the viewer deep into technical progression circa 1993. The emerging California snowboard park scene has a big presence in this video. SoCal guys like Bryan Iguchi and Dave Downing handle business at Bear Mountain’s « Outlaw Park ». In Iguchi’s part, we’re pretty sure he does the first ever-filmed backside 1080. Meanwhile, Grass Valley locals like Chris Roach, Aaron Vincent, and Noah Salasnek get « Jibassic » at NorCal’s Boreal. Then Jamie Lynn joins them and The Boreal segment becomes one of the coolest things ever documented in a snowboard video. The Northwest legends Mike Ranquet and Jamie Lynn shred powder lines at Mt. Baker. Ranquet does a solo helicopter guided backcountry segment. To top it all of there’s a lot of awesome tunes provided by bands like Dead Kennedys, Melvins, Monster Magnet, and Supersuckers.
