Just when you thought compilation DVDs were relegated to the likes of pornography, Mack Dawg's People DVD features a collaboration of riders and filmers from Mack Dawg, KidsKnow and Neoporoto. Ok, so it isn't really like a "best-of" porno flick. Instead, you get a wealth of riders and filmers to add to the diversity.

People is an amazing movie that is a bit more artsy than your standard snowboard flick, but with awesome snowboarding. Too often snowboard vids seem to follow skateboarding and we sometimes wonder if snowboarding ever happens on a snow-covered mountain. Rest easy - it does. Without the barrage of handrails and assorted jibs, we see riders taking to frosty hills and doing what they do best - soaring high.

That's a pleasant change as my skin crawls every time I see someone grinding the base of their board across a barren parking lot. Sure they may have just hit a handrail with the grace of an acrobat, but snowboard -vs- pavement is an ugly thing to watch (for those of us who have to pay for boards). There's a reason they're called SNOWboards.

Kick your feet up and enjoy snowboarding for what it is, filmed by one of the best.
