If you’ve visited the Tin Shed, you no doubt saw the trailer for Hand Cut, a backcountry skiing and snowboarding film by 1% For the Planet member, Sweetgrass Productions. The film’s tour schedule will be winding down at the end of the year, but not before folks in the Santa Barbara area get a chance to see the film on the big screen. Hand Cut will be shown on December 4, as part of Santa Barbara Surfrider’s Annual Holiday Party (details after the jump).
For those who don’t live in our neck of the woods, the Hand Cut DVD is now available to purchase at Patagonia.com. The movie blends old-timer wisdom with self-propelled backcountry riding and the original blues music of John-Alex Mason, all brought to life in High Definition and brilliant 16mm film.
Nick from Sweetgrass Productions generously donated a copy of the movie to The Cleanest Line and we’re giving you the chance to win it. Just leave a comment on this post before midnight on Dec. 4 and we’ll choose a random winner. Read on for the rules of the contest.
