Yeah yeah we know, we missed the entire last week with this lil’ weekly writeup. But we were at the Burton European Open, and the internet was shit over there, and… does it really matter? I mean we found so many new and awesome things this week, you will barely notice you didn’t get last week’s instalment of This Week in Snowboarding! Don’t believe us? Well, here you go.
Well, the Burton European Open went down in Laax/Switzerland, and Jamie Anderson, Roope Tonteri, Kelly Clark and Peetu Piiroinen won. TWSnow spends three minutes with Marie-France Roy. Yobeat keeps rejecting edits. Desiree Melancon had a litte accident. And Motorhead’s Lemmy tells the best story he’s ever heard (clearly, Saturday wasn’t that exciting).
Klaustrofobiatch is the new Duckjen movie, and it is fairly solid. Everyone goes nuts about Roope Tonteri’s Cab 1440 at the BEO. And have all the other BEO highlights, too. We post the list of confirmed riders for the Air&Style Innsbruck. Torstein Horgmo does auditions. Xavier De Le Rue goes splitboarding in Canada. The girls part from The Storming gets remixed. Girls? Here’s another Roxy Refreshments episode, and it features the girls + Heikki Sorsa. The Tahoe Dangerzone Pop episode is pretty sick. Whitelines has a 30something shred flick. No doubt, Chalet Girl will change the way we look at snowboarding. And Analog announce the European winner of their feature design comp.
Joe Sexton’s epic part gets remixed, and so does the equally brilliant Cale Zima Absinthe video part. The Bataleon family edit is dope. Horgmo and Biittner cruise Keystone. Toots and McMorris talk. John Jackson wins an award. Chas Guldemond tells you how to stomp a back 10 dub. We are lazy and throw the WEARE2012 crew and the L1/Nitro team into one big jib post. The Roxy Girls become the Chalet Girl. Yobeat’s Terrible Tuesday is a really good kink klip.
Terje Haakonsen writes an open letter to the IOC. Partysnake 3: Videogrease is this week’s most popular piece of content. A must-see! Aaron Biittner faces Andreas Wiig in this game of In Your Face. Jon Weaver writes an ode to Europe. Yobeat unearth the Winter’s Children video (Laura Hadar naked!). Greg Bretz signs Snowboarder’s Guestbook. ESPN calls MFR. This Snowboard Realms pow clip just keeps getting better. You want Enni Rukajärvi to take you home? Here you go! Here’s the I Ride Park City early January edit. Fun days at The Canyons. We give away tickets for the Air&Style Innsbruck, and the riders list for the A&S Munich gets released. Austin Smith is a gooner. The Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle shakes up Talma. And Hana Beaman lets the good times rock and roll.
Shaun White is awesome. Mervin is more awesome. Drew Amer talks about the worst snowboard injury, ever. Chas Guldemond shows you the Killington slopestyle course. Yobeat shows you Big Boulder Boarding. ESPN explains the ongoing dispute between FIS and everybody else. The Austrian Sane! crew creates their own jib park. Crewzin’ goes Videograss. The Ästhetiker stay in Chile. Romain de Marchi is featured in our desktop wallpaper of the week. Signal Snowboards create a boom-board.
Finnish snowboard mag Slammer reintroduced us to a true shred classic, and you should know it, too!
Have a good weekend everyone!
