Watch: Speedy Sends, Scary Slides in ‘Wind Slab,’ Featuring Austen Sweetin

In ‘Wind Slab,’ Austen Sweetin rampages in deep backcountry powder at home in Washington. Hot take: Watch ’til the end. Seriously.

Austen Sweetin rips. Last winter, the snowboarder spent the season stuck at home in the PNW, riding an extended staycation at Mount Baker.

Boardslide Worldwide’s “Wind Slab” is the rollicking result. The style is a throwback to old-school snowboard and skate videos focused on shredding, set to psych-rock.

Sweetin achieves straight-line speeds high enough to make most of us patently uncomfortable and clears massive drops. Finish it for a wicked, powder-coated surprise.
