A 42min film by Brad Holmes, showed up in the mail today.

Would have liked to see it more in depth/longer, just scratches the surface.

My copy is in the mail, a pretty price to pay for a DVD, but gotta support my boy! Palmer is an animal! When he is sober and has that "look in his eye" no one can touch him, unfortunatly he likes to party way too much! There is a mountain bike interview out there where his talks about beating all the olympic skiers at their own game! Classic Palmer.... He is not only a friend of mine but an inspiration....If you have ever seen him sk8 a vert ramp it is quite the site.... A few years over Forty , do or die tricks, make it or slam! He does not half ass anything! Yea Shawn, YOU ARE THE MAN!

Palmer off the couch, settin up an invert with a lein to tail

The trailer



All the shenanigans aside, The Palm was pretty influential on me way back in the formative years (not that I turned out anything resembling the man.)
Dude straight kills on anything he rides, drives, or touches.
Respect.

The clown hair and Uncle Sam suit were questionable, but no one can deny the raw gnarliness of the Palm. That dude totally made an indelible mark on 90s snowboarding. And I'm sure he still kills it. What's up with getting Palmer out on a split? :headbang:

Palmer was the Bo Jackson (small white Bo Jackson) of extreme, before extreme. But Tomac still beat him in worlds one year In a lame lycra suit no less.

He had a chance qualifying 10th in the last World Cup. Ended up only getting out of the first round and finishing 24th.
Looks like no Olympics for Palmer.
I'm sure there will be a better chance at those TV games with a less of a strong field as many don't want to get injured before the Olympics.
