Introducing the Real Ones: a series of short films that shines a spotlight on the people behind the scenes at Nidecker and Flow; riders and unsung heroes who have dedicated their lives to snowboarding.

Chances are, you’ve seen Tim Humphreys before. He’s the snowboarder that melted the internet – and helped put GoPro cameras on the map – with his groundbreaking POV clips.

In this episode we meet the man behind the selfie. A New Jersey native who left the traffic jams behind to chase his dreams in the backcountry of Lake Tahoe. A veteran of the contest circuit, a trailblazing filmer and editor, and a guy who, when all’s said and done, just lives to shred.

Filmed and edited by Kyle Schwartz
