Where do you find all snowboarding internet sensations? Where are all snowboarders’ weird mainstream media appearances listed? Where do you go if work on a Friday is just too boring? That’s right it’s all here in yet another edition of This Week in Snowboarding! The best of the past seven days all crammed into one post…
Our English part of the crew shunned riding on Saturday to blog live about the Air&Style Beijing. The One Life Wednesday montage is weird and girlish. Mikey Rencz‘ Cheers part gets remixed, and Mikkel Bang’s In Color part, too. Jeremy Jones talks about Deeper on Fox Business and Burritos and Snow posts his all-time favourite movie parts.
Johnny Lazz & Co. kick off a new season of Sunday in the Park. Funbelievable is good, but does not quite live up to its name. Our Cup of Tea is a full movie from Sweden. The Bone Zone in Utah gets ripped, and Salvi Peluso isn’t well known but posts his edit nonetheless.
Halldor Helgason signs for Nike 6.0. Here are the top three tricks from the Air&Style Beijing. We have the full movie Get in the Van 2. The Angry Snowboarder has the full movie Erosion. Yobeat has all Todcast – the Movie episodes. Spatziba drops the second part of Talking Headz with Gigi. Speaking of Gigi, here’s the entire Alaska part from 9191. Want to see some blood? Check TW Snow! Want to see some Premature Jibulation? Then check here. Brandon Cocard is the subject of the latest Airblaster Family Portrait. The Forum Youngbloods shred Mammoth. The “Weekly Quickly” is also worth checking out. A crew of French riders (Bourbousson, Lamazouere, Crepel) enjoys some pow-pow, Greg Sudac’s video part is fairly good, and – unbelievably – these girls are kind of cool.
Here are the Air&Style Beijing highlights from the finals. TW Snow has Torstein Horgmo’s full run from The Storming (without the video game SFX). Bryan Fox and Scotty Wittlake are making a movie. Oh, and Scotty created a bit of an internet sensation here. Simon Chamberlain gets A Day in the Life. Any Ideas? is yet another interesting teaser. The Nitro rookies are at work here. The Smith Optics team movie teaser is at work here. Park City is looking good in this clip. The Ride Shakedown comes to Germany. The K2 x Beta Unit collabo is somehow pretty cool, and: snow cones for everyone!
Our Artec design comp is going through the roof, Smith Optics release their ‘Prospecting Idaho’ episode 4. Kazuhiro Kokubo‘s part gets remix here, and Simon Chamberlain‘s here, Enzo Nilo rides well in this short clip, the Freestyle Academy in Laax steps things up, the Rip Curl riders rip through Sweden, who was asking if Mike Basich was till riding? Check his Day in the Life! Kevin Pearce talks on Fox News, Gretchen Bleiler resigns from halfpipe riding, and Andreas Wiig now appears on Rockstar (and vice versa).
Absinthe’s Flipside episode 6 is sick, Dan Brisse rides through his Poachers X part (and gets a cover in Japan), Scott Stevens’ Volcom edit is wicked, Kjersti Buaas & Jamie Anderson rip up Tahoe, Forrest Shearer talks about Hydrodynamica while Forest Bailey rides in Colorado, and South of the North gets excited about The Stash in Jackson Hole.
Apparently a Grand Prix went down in Copper, The Illicit Snowboarder gives us the lowdown on space boardin‘,there’s a thing called the Snowboard Jedi Program, more riding from Park City here, the Cheers crew goes backcountry, here’s Brighton at night, there are the Gremlinz, the From Now On teaser isn’t too bad, and we would love to continue but have to leave for our annual Xmas party!
