Snowboarding is much more than just banger after banger; It’s a journey, it’s euphoria, it’s pain, it’s excitement, it’s fear, it’s meeting new people, it’s sending it, it’s SNOWBOARDING.
Aaron was always the driving force behind this project. When it seemed like things weren’t gonna work out he always found a way to make it happen. He loved a challenge! I spent this last winter traveling around to many of his favorite places, meeting up with friends, and making some new ones along the way. I feel so lucky to have been able to share such great times with such an amazing person.
When Aaron passed away in Chile this last July it was hard to even think about the movie, let alone sit down and edit hours of his footage from the winter. It wasn’t until Blake Paul sent me an email highlighting the fact that one of Aaron’s goals all season was to get everyone down to Chile and film a segment for the movie that I came to realize something that should have been so obvious. We had to head South and finish what he had started. Although we were physically missing the one person who really should have been on that trip I feel like he was actually with us more than ever. We’ll miss you A-ROB!

Thursday, September 29th at the Bomb Snow World Headquarters for an amazing night of snowboarding-inspired photography as we celebrate “Perfect Moments Of Shred,” a fundraiser for the A-ROB Plant A Seed Foundation.
The show will feature a curated collection of iconic images from snowboarding’s most esteemed photographers that have never been available for public purchase. This limited edition series features work by internationally respected shooters: Jeff Curtes, Frode Sandbech, Andy Wright, Matt Georges, Jenna Low and Scott Serfas, just to name a few.
Proceeds from the event will help support the recently launched A-ROB Plant A Seed Foundation, a Whitefish-based, non-profit started after Aaron Robinson’s untimely death while snowboarding in Chile this past summer. The Foundation will help carry out Aaron’s dream of providing underprivileged children the opportunity to experience and develop their own passion and love for snowboarding.
