Shred is a 2008 snowboarding comedy film starring Tom Green and Dave England, that was filmed at Big White Ski Resort and Silver Star Mountain Resort, two ski resorts in British Columbia, Canada.[2]

The film is followed by a sequel entitled, Revenge of the Boarding School Dropouts (2009).

Plot[edit]

Shred is a motion picture that tells the story of two washed up pro snowboarders from the 1990s named Max (Dave England) and Eddy (Jason Bothe) who attempt to cash in on the fantastic growth of the sport by starting their own snowboard camp. Hoping to recapture their former glory, they begin by sharing their wacky wisdom with a group of up and coming young snowboarders. The story takes them from the run down ski hill where they grew up to a major event at one of the biggest resorts in the west.

The pair face off against Kingsley Brown (Tom Green), a deviously sleazy corporate snowboard rep and nemesis to Max and Eddy. With the assistance of his lackey Sphinx (Shane Meier), the underhanded Kingsley sets out to ruin the ambitions of Max and Eddy by any means necessary.
