Who would have thought? Our TWIS is picking up momentum. We would hope it is for our unique selection of clips, interviews and fun facts from the world of snowboarding. But maybe it is just the fact that we started embedding the highlight videos of the week in this post. Whatever humps your camel – here’s yet another edition!
MONDAYJed Anderson is still crazy good, and he found his German counter-part in Dani Raycsanyi.
We megapost all important US Open videos. The Flying Finns shred pow-pow.Scott Stevens‘ old HCSC clip gets remixed, but is still good. Crewzin‘ visits Finger on da Trigger. This Bear Mountain clip on Pleasure’s website is quite entertaining. Joe Sexton & Justin Fronius ride Hyland Hills.
We have Andreas Wiig’s and Pat Moore’s full parts from F’It. Jake Blauvelt’s second Backcountry episode drops, and Chas Guldemond drops in for the sixth time. Alex Cantin, Jake Kuzyk & Co. star in yet another 5 Tricks Fix. Givin shred pow. Then there’s Loonatics episode 8. The Tahoe Dangerzone presents a great collection of slams. Back to the Boneyard III went down (scroll to the bottom of this for a video). And King Snow Mag investigate the worst bail ever.

Here are Lauri Heiskari’s and JP Walker’s parts from Cheers, and here’s the full Youngbloods part from F’It. Antti Jussila’s part from KBR’s Homework gets re-released.
