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.

DCP’s Surf/Snowboard Segment (from Into the Mind) is a visual exploration of water’s behaviour in various states, and an inquisition to its effect on those who interact with it. Featuring legendary snowboarder DCP (David Carrier Porcheron), as he surfs and snowboards interior British Columbia and Costa Rica, this segment lulls the viewer into that wonderful and content state of hypnosis experienced while riding pow. The segment also features scenes of mountaineering savant Conrad Anker, Kayaking guru Rush Sturges, freestyle wizard Tom Wallisch (stomping his first attempt at a triple), all set in various locations ranging from Tofino, Whistler/Blackcomb, Montana, and beyond.
INTO THE MIND
From the makers of the award winning film “All.I.Can”, comes the new feature film: INTO THE MIND. Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.
As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
Into The Mind is about becoming.
