    Last year Bode Merrill‘s full part with Absinthe films was set to a wild electronic beat that pumped over gnarly tricks by the Santa Cruz native who now calls Utah home. This year Bode is back with even bigger more progressive tricks like one footing pyramid gap, a double Miller flip over a man-made field goal, and gaping up to a kink rail. And then there are the smaller tricks that are just as gnarly but might go unnoticed like the gap to down creeper with a chain link closeout, or the double boardslide with a narrow run out, and the nosebutter to frontflip off of a cornice. The only thing that was left out this year was the techno music. All of these ingredients combined to help Bode land a double song ender part in the Heavy Mental movie by Absinthe Films.

      Forrest Shearer grew up a long way from the mountains that today dominate his life. A product of a Southern California upbringing, Forrest was exposed to the golden era of action sports. Soaking up the legacy of the legends that spawned from his backyard, motivating him to the playgrounds of his ocean backyard and then further afield to the call of the mountains. The Shearer’s are a family of thinkers and doers and Forrest was instilled with the desire to change the world through his actions. Silent moments on mountains that speak volumes through photos and videos. This is his life. A passionate personality within the sport, Forrest has defined himself as a man of true, steadfast beliefs whose actions speak volumes and efforts to preserve his pastimes will last for generations. Here's a look at Forrest's full part from Absinthe Films.

        The age old battle was finally put to the test and to rest on October 16, 2014 as ZEAL Optics pitted skiers against snowboarders in a night for the ages. The night featured premieres of Super Proof's "The Recruitment", starring Mike Henitiuk, and Absinthe Films' "Heavy Mental", starring Austen Sweetin. In addition to the films, we enlisted the CU Snowboard Team and CU Freestyle Ski Team, as well as Freeskier Magazine and Snowboard Mag to dual it out in sumo suits on stage! For the final round, ZEAL's Mike Henitiuk and Austen Sweetin got in the ring, breaking the tie, with snowboarders winning the night with two out of three bouts. With live music by DJ Ginger Perry, and an MC battle between ZEAL snowboarder Pat Milbery and skier Rob Aseltine, the vibe was rocking and good times were had as a crowd of over 500 came together and took advantage of a huge raffle with all proceeds going directly to Protect Our Winters! All in all an amazing night! Production and Post by Siren Vid. sirenvid.com

                Absinthe Films came to Prague to present their newest movie "DOPAMINE". They spent a nice day in the city, hanging around, walking through the historical centre, skateboarding, making interviews and mainly chilling before the night show. That happened in infamous Roxy Club which was full of people (1000 attending!). Cheering crowd made a perfect atmosphere for presenting the movie and Absinthe crew consisting of Patrick Armbruster, Mathieu Crépel, Victor De Le Rue, Sylvain Bourbousson, Rusty Ockenden, Manuel Diaz and Silvano Zeiter was really stoked and enjoyed the party as never before. Check the video! Pics from the party: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151638959668342.1073741839.15895603341&type=3
