LAYERS is a featured film documentary dedicated to discovering and celebrating the unique people, places, personalities, and layers behind what we call snowboarding. Since the beginning snowboarding has been more than just the act of using a toy during the winter months; an unintentional global culture has been created. There is more to it than what you see on TV, X-Games, the Olympics, video parts, social media, and your favorite pro's Instagram Feed. Snowboarding is the collective of individual local passion for the people, places, community, and the act of sliding with a smile worldwide. LAYERS takes us through some of the most well-known and unknown snowboarding locations, communities, and heroes in search of what makes snowboarding more than just a "sport." Dive into conversations and adventures with some of the most dedicated snowboarders in the world – from park shapers, non-profit organizations, shop floor kids, resort owners, video part legends, current pros, and Gold Medalists to the regular snowboarder. Through this documentary, we have found that snowboarding is a multifaceted ecosystem. Built up of many critical layers balanced together in a world that continues to evolve, and the future depends on every layer within it. Snowboarding is like a flower, and what we currently know is the blossom. Like any living organism, without all the layers, nothing is possible; in turn, these layers have created a culture without borders through snowboarding. LAYERS is a snapshot of some of the people, places, communities, and events that have and continue to shape this snowboarding culture that we are all proud to be a part of.
CAKE is a full-length featured snowboard film by Nitro Snowboards, which is part of the LAYERS documentary project based on exploring the culture of snowboarding. The CAKE is only possible through the layers' efforts and stability and motivates the progression of culture and new generations to progress. The deeper the layers, the better the CAKE! CAKE is a movie dedicated to showcasing the current level of "fun progression," how pro snowboarders like to ride for fun, and hopefully motivating everyone to get out and go snowboarding with their friends.
