Absinthe Films - Bode Merrill Rider Profile
One of the most prolific well-rounded riders apparent from his parts with Absinthe Films, his X Games Real Snow video parts, to hammers in the streets. Just listen to Travis Rice, JP Solberg and Romain de Marchi describing Bode's style and raw talent. Dan Brisse sums Bode up in describing his backside double-cork 1080 he threw down first try in Absinthe's Neverland.
After 4/20 we closed down the resort but immediately afterward the park crew pushed all of the Crown jumps into one huge jump for Sage and friends to session for his Holy Crail series. Heavy hitters like Bode Merrill, Zak Hale, Aaron Biittner, Nik Baden, Nick Julius, Michael Wick, and Griffin Siebert came to throw down. Vita Brevis Films and Pat Fenelon also brought some cameras up to get some of the sickest footage to date. From R3Ds to drones to local legends to Olympic gold medal athletes, we did it all. Here is a preview VBF put together from the craziness that went down after we were closed. Keep an eye out for Sage’s Full Part dropping on TWSNOW.com this Fall.
The Merrill Mini is a 13 foot tall, 200 foot long halfpipe located on the ridge at the top of Neff Land.
Dan Brisse has completely changed the game of urban snowboarding conquering the heaviest rail and gap setups around with a calculated and precise approach. Brisse's "Always down" mentality resonates well with the rest of the Absinthe Films shred crew including Travis Rice, JP Solberg, Bode Merrill, and Nicolas Muller. There is nothing better than having a guy pumped to shovel jumps all day only to be equally excited to hit them!
The fourth episode of the I Ride Park City series features Alex Rodway, Ben Bogart, Harrison Gordon, Mac Spedale, Zak Hale, Dylan Thompson, Alex Sherman and Bode Merrill sessioning the 3 Kings run as well as the new Merrill Mini Pipe.

Quite simply Bode Merrill is the man. He doesn't need two feet strapped in to drop hammers.
The goods just keep dropping. The All Stars were out in full force nearly every day this past week, as was most of the SLC shred scene. These guys put in the work and Rob Mathis was there to capture it all.
We opened last week with a killer set up. Watch Alex Sherman, Scotty Arnold, Sage Kotsenburg, Blake Geis, Blake Paul, Sam Taxwood, Stevie Bell, Blaze Kotsenburg, Parker Duke, Knut Eliassen, Aaron Biittner, Tim Ronan, Chris Grenier, and Bode Merrill put a hurting to all of the features in 3 Kings terrain park.
