Screen Shot 2012-11-06 at 3.52.25 PM

Youth is wasted on the young, some say. Well, in “Pretty Wise,” the new film by People Films, it certainly appears like the crop of 11 rising stars (along with three veterans) are effectively putting their early years and blossoming talent to good use.

Hitting the city streets from Quebec to Anchorage, the backcountry powder in Whistler and Montana, and then Austria, Mt. Baker, Japan and Mammoth, as well, along the way, the spotlight is shined on faces you’ve certainly seen but maybe not yet been able to identify. Theirs are names and faces you better get to know.

Jake Koia and Rusty Ockenden are among the long list of future stars, showing diversity riding street, park and backcountry settings. They’re joined by other young Oakley talents, including Marco Smolla and Jason Dubois, all of whom add will be contributing to the ever-evolving future of snowboarding – their impressions will surely be significant.

You can download the video through iTunes or track down a copy through your local shop. Need a sense of what you’re missing? Check out the “Pretty Wise” trailer and see what the youth of this next generation are up to.
