“He’s completely nuts but really calculated about really nuts.”
A new video from Snowboard Magazine pays tribute to Utah snowboarder Bode Merrill. Broken Mechanism includes interviews and a collection of archive footage – film and digital cuts, backcountry and urban boarding – a stellar compilation of Merill’s fearlessness.
A creative and well-rounded rider, Merrill is known for his closing parts in Absinthe’s Neverland (2009) and Heavy Mental (2014). The 29-year old is on the cover of Snowboard Magazine’s Detour Issue, out this month. Edited by Cody Rosenthal, the retrospective vid will make you wanna get our your board from the closet.
