Activist snowboarders bring film tour to Nelson

Beyond Boarding is coming to Nelson with two of their documentary films, which will have their Nelson premiere at Expressions on March 8.

Members from Beyond Boarding are coming to Nelson in a veggie oil powered school bus with two of their documentary films, which will have their Nelson premiere at Expressions on March 8.

David Suzuki’s grandson and co-founder of Beyond Boarding, Tamo Campos, and other Beyond Boarding members (Desiree Wallace and Hannah Campbell) will be present at the premiere to connect with the community.

The two films — Belén and Northern Grease — document Beyond Boarding’s flagship projects for 2012 and 2013, respectively. Both films feature high level snowboarding, surfing, cinematography and storytelling.

Belén tells the story of Canadian snowboarders Tamo Campos and Dave MacKinnon traveling through South America, working with local development organizations in impoverished communities and snowboarding volcano craters in Patagonia.

Northern Grease follows Tamo Campos, Jasper Snow Rosen, John Muirhead, and Hannah Campbell travel 18,000 kilometres across Northern BC in a veggie oil powered school bus, as they learn about problems presented by resource extraction projects and visit the people who’s lifestyles present solutions.

Tickets will be $10 for general admission, $8 for EcoSociety members and $5 for students. Reserve your ticket today on Eventbrite under “Beyond Boarding Presents: Film Tour at Nelson.” Come celebrate with the team as they journey across this beautiful province once again.

Beyond Boarding is an organization dedicated to spreading interest in humanitarian and environmental work within the outdoor community. It aims to encourage snowboarders to channel the positive energy inherent to the sport in ways that genuinely help the people in our world.
