Adidas Presents “Welcome: Forest Bailey”

From Adidas Snowboarding via Vimeo:

Watching Forest confidently step to big, brutal street rails you’d never guess that he’s such a mellow kid. It’s true. He’s a self-proclaimed Dead Head from rural Vermont. Over the past few seasons this semi-nomadic slayer has emerged as a versatile rider committed to steadily progressing his game on all types of terrain. His creative, skate-inspired approach to the streets is backed by solid board control fundamentals that he honed as a young buck on the icy slopes of Stratton Mountain. Summers spent riding Mount Hood and a few seasons of lapping perfectly sculpted parks in Tahoe set him squarely on the path to the pros. Forest appeared in the underground Givin’ Films’ One in 2011, producing a standout part highlighted by unique obstacles ridden with proper style. The following season he continued to transition toward backcountry and big mountain riding while filming for Givin’s sophomore release Too. After two months of shredding powder at Mt. Baker, Forest showed up at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado and casually claimed the gold medal in Street. After that, Forest finished his season filming for TransWorld Snowboarding’s 2013 release, Nation. Plainly put, people may profess that Forest is one of the best jibbers in the world, but the fact of the matter is that Forest is more than that. He’s one of the best riders in the world.

“I am influenced by everything around me. Whether that’s good snowboarders with good style, or my family, friends, musicians, artists, photographers, videographers. I try and keep an open mind so I can continue to gain knowledge about all of these different things. I am so lucky to know hundreds of truly talented humans, so I try and learn from all the people I’m surrounded by.” Forest Bailey
