Afterlame was premiered back in 2004 by Robot Food after their great success with Afterbang (2002) and then Lame in 2003. However, my first experience with Robot Food was watching Afterlame.
Afterlame is a mix of sexy progressive tricks combined with rider interviews and a unique soundtrack that pushed the limits of what snowboard videos could work with. In fact, the soundtrack became one of the most requested for any snowboard video that I have ever seen. A friend of mine was able to get most of the songs and I still listen to them today. Every time I hear a song from Afterlame, I’m instantly swept away from reality and daydreaming of the powdery glades.
If you have never seen Afterlame, and have the time, I highly recommend checking it out. I have linked the two part video directly on WhoaSnow, however, you may click the original links under each video to watch the larger versions.
This video changed my snowboarding career, and possibly my life in small but meaningful ways.
