Ethan Morgan “On Deck” in Snowboarder Mag
Reel Theory was happy to pitch in and help out Ethan film some extra space in his part for the year. All his Mt Hood footage in this piece we filmed in the HCSC in the course of a couple days. Check out his tricky Front Side 3 Pre-Indy grabs, and “Off the Heals” back 5’s… impressive stuff! This edit mostly shows Ethans season in on piece and salutes him on his On Deck exposure in Snowboarder Magazine. Congrats Ethan!

As a supplement to Ethan Morgan’s “On Deck” in the August 2012 issue of SNOWBOARDER Magazine Ethan provided us a video featuring proof of why this guy deserved that page in the mag. See what Alexis De Tarde has to say about Ethan below and be sure to subscribe or download the digital issue to see the rest of the magazine.
“Ethan Morgan is his own breed of rider. Born in Japan from a German mother and an American father, he has lived on both sides of the Atlantic, making him some sort of pretzel-burger with a touch of soy sauce. He started boarding in Mittenwald, Germany, pumped on Ross Powers. Everyone quickly noticed him for his precision, good nature, explosive potential, and sleepy style that he smeared across the sky on the regular. Nowadays he calls Innsbruck his home, and you can catch him riding every side of the mountain, including rails, park, and pow. Look out for him this year in Standard’s latest film busting out this fall on a screen near you.” — ALEXIS DE TARADE
ESPN, First Time with NATE “BOZ-NUTS”
Though it’s been a while since Nate Bozung set the pace himself, he inspired many of the so-called “urban snowboarders” who are currently holding court in the wintery, rail-filled streets of downtowns across North America today — both through his style, and through his taking the time to bring some of the young guns up when he was on top. He’s also one of the most colorful characters in snowboarding, and kind of like a Yeti in that when you see him darting by you have to pick up a camera and document the event so people don’t think you’re making it up.
We caught up with Bozung at his LA crash pad and asked him a few questions about the good old days, where he’s been, and if he’s going to get back on his board soon. Here’s what he had to say.

Back in late June I was able to take a summer film class at MASS ART about producing a documentary with Julie Mazzolli, and I stopped in the alumni office for a moment to pick up my student ID card. This moment turned into a 15 minute conversation about how life has been since graduation. That 15 minute conversation has lead to this nice article written by the alumni director Darlene Gillan. I loved my time at MASS ART and really couldn’t say enough about how my education had helped to shape my career. From this brief interaction, we were able to establish a great dialogue about how “MASS ART made me fearless” (college motto). We have carried the conversation past the article into possible teaching and panel discussions. I am happy that we connected and made such a wonderful relationship since. Thanks Darlene and thanks MASS ART!
