“Snowboarders in Exile” (1990) changed the course of snowboarding for the better. It was the inspiration for moving away from ski-based styles like slalom racing and helped infuse a more freeform skate mentality into snowboarding. Upon the release of “Exile”, FLF created the concept of the snowboard video pro and changed the careers of its stars almost instantly. In the following years, FLF went on to release a few of the best videos ever made and launched the video production careers of legends like Dave Seoane, Standard Films, and Mack Dawg Productions.
A true story about five of the world’s most radical snowboarders. Too extreme for conventional minds; Damian Sanders, Steve Graham, Dave Seone, Chris Roach and Jean Higgins travel the globe in search of vertical. Fifty-foot cliff drops, chin-deep powder; SNOWBOARDERS IN EXILE pushes all the boundaries. Check out extreme international attitude from: Chamonix, France; Rusutsu Kogen, Japan and Blackomb, British Columbia. Venture to sick local spots like Squaw Valley, CA; Donner Summit, CA; Mt. Hood, OR; and Jackson Hole, WY.
SNOWBOARDERS IN EXILE…Laugh at the impossible.

1989 brought a revolution: “(All quiet on) the Western Front” was the first movie by Fall Line Films Productions, and Noah Salasnek, Dave Seoane, and Chris Roach with their day-glo gear and rad, skateboard-inspired moves started a new freestyle movement. This VHS featured everything that makes snowboarding movies so great: innovative tricks, heavy beats, and it made you want to go shred! This video changed some lives, just like the following Fall Line flicks did, “Snowboarders in Exile” (1990) or “Riders on the storm” (1992).
