The first HD snowboard movie in China

Below is a teaser from called “Happy Niu Year”, the first Chinese snowboard movie shot in HD – hitting the world December 2009.

According to the Vimeo summary the video was “shot primarily in Beijing’s Quiksilver Nanshan Mellow Park, the movie is the sequel to last year’s snowboarding flick “Niu Beesness”. Luckily for the public we were forced to abandon our initial plan of venturing into the erotic films industry due to legal issues…and decided to put together Happy Niu Year instead.”

In case you’re wondering Niu stands for Ox – and 2009 is the year of the Ox. It’s a play on words, as it sounds like ‘new’ – well sort of, anyway.

Happy Niu Year features riding from the Crew, Quiksilver China Snowboard Team, and friends.

Now for the good news: The DVD will be free to the public. Included in the DVD is the Nitro Roadwarriors’ 2009 movie, the 7th Nanshan Open (Nanshan is a resort in China), a best-of roundup, and a trip to New Zealand. All in all that’s more than 100 minutes of free content. As the Chinese would say, Hen Hao. As the Kiwis would say, Sweet as, bro!

In China you can get your copy from December at any Quiksilver, Nordica or Nitro store, stockists of 9010, Neff, and Skullcandy, or through 1626, CityWeekend and Speed Snowboard magazines. Not in China? No problem! Happy 牛 Year will also be available free to download from!
