Incline Village, Nevada – November 17th, 2023 -10:30 pm – Professional snowboarder Curtis Woodman is excited to announce the release of his latest film, Rebirth. The film is a celebration of snowboarding and its unique ability to transform lives by pursuing your passions. 

After two years of being off of the snow while taking care of his Pops, who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and passed last fall, Curtis returned to the mountains last season to ride in honor of his pops and reconnect with what he loves most. 

“Rebirth” was named after the song Curtis produced for the film in honor of his experience of last season being back on the snow. This part features Woodman exploring some of the most remote and challenging terrain in the Sierras strapped only with his Spring Break Snowboard, Union Bindings, Vert snowshoes and Raen Sunglasses. Curtis traverses the steep chutes, powder-filled peaks, elegant cornices, and backcountry booters during the record breaking snowfall of the 2022-2023 Season in and around Lake Tahoe. Watch Curtis take full advantage unleashing his unique skills to stylishly Surf the Sierras.

But more than just a showcase of snowboarding tricks, Rebirth is also a story about personal growth and transformation. Snowboarding has helped Woodman overcome the loss of his father and find his peace in an often overly complicated world. 

“Snowboarding is more than just a sport to me,” Woodman says. “It’s a way of life. It’s something that has helped me to grow as a person and to connect with others on a deeper level. I’m excited to share this film with the world and to inspire others to find their own rebirth through snowboarding.”
