Hail Mary: A Snowboard Short Featuring Ben Ferguson and Friends
Over the last few years many riders have abandoned the traditional film-crew approach to filming, and have chosen to embark on their own projects. The results while often a little less polished, are ultimately significantly more honest, and truer to the individuals involved. We are down.
Welcome, Hail Mary. Self-described as “a last-minute attempt with a small chance of success,” Ben Ferguson and Tyler Orton’s, Hail Mary documents a year of the duo traveling the globe filming everything from X Games runs, to backcountry booters and resort euro carves. And trust us, it is anything but a flop. From Mt. Bachelor to the mountains of Japan and back, Hail Mary captures what it is to spend life on the road, and the many experiences that come with it.
Featuring riding from Ben Ferguson, Gabe Ferguson, Alex Lopez, Jared Elston, Curtis Ciszek, Iikka Backstrom, Manuel Diaz and Rip Zinger.
Additional filming by Justin Hostynek, Benny Bright.
