This Week in Snowboarding 7/2011

If you think Halldor looks young here, you should watch the movie before Why Not. In Noxious Dreaming he is a true ankle biter... but that doesn't stop him trying double backies off minishred hits.

Listen up! Lately, we’ve been thinking about This Week in Snowboarding. And guess what: All those links alone look a little sad and lonely, and clicking through to the best clips of the week is sometimes just too much asked from you tired folks out there at the week’s end. That’s why from now on we’ll include the best clips in the post. This is some next level shit, believe us! Almost as awesome as this email thing we found the other day! Check it out below…

SATURDAY

The Air&Style Munich goes down. Even before the official contest we have a rail jam training vid and some big air training highlights.

Peetu won it by the way. Forum drop the full John Jackson ‘Fit part on TWSnow. ESPN covers the North Face Masters. Yobeat receives a lot of (too) early teasers. And JP Walker shares one of the greatest moments of snowboard filmmaking with everyone.

SUNDAY

eBay is still the single most awesome source for snowboard gear. The Gerlos obstacles look sick. And as usual the Menthol Monday drops Sunday. And nothing else happens.

MONDAY

To be honest, much of the motivation behind this post was to promote this clip by Riley Erickson featuring Dan “Danimals” Liedahl.

Fredrik Austbo and Scott Moline have fun in bad weather (and so do the Finns). Our English ed has fun creating an Air&Style megapost. Leysin hosted the Nescafé Champs (here’s a video recap). At Equilibrium is a documentary on the Bulgarian shred scene. This Sabre edit is fairly rad. The Legendary Baker Banked Slalom took place on the weekend, and ESPN does some hero worshipping. Absinthe re-release all of their teasersBob Plumb is hood. The Roxy girls go ArgentinaGBP goes soup kitchen. And voilà: a bowl made of snow.

TUESDAY

DC’s This is Snowboarding series continues with Devun Walsh.

Jon Weaver talks about Halldor Helgason as the modern antiheroVideograss leak some of their footage here. Chas Guldemond keeps dropping in in his webisodes. The Dew Tour went down over the weekend, and we post all relevant videos and results. Danny Davis and Stephan Maurer session The Stash at Jackson Hole. Here’s an LBS recap video. The YES. crew goes ski-dooing. And Johnny O’Connor slams. Hard.

WEDNESDAY

No doubt, the Art of Flight teaser has been the most popular piece of content this week, and we even have some additional Curt Morgan chatter.

For whatever reason, Louie Vito and Yelawolf share the same stage. Stepchild re-release their 2007 flick Child Support. The Arctic Challenge release some kind of tv teaser. The Wängl Tängl also releases a teaser. Good times. Yobeat post a slightly bizarro LBS clip. Hana Beaman is not in Utah anymore. Austin Smith and Bryan Fox slam. Very hard. And neither us nor The Mustachio really know what this one’s about, but we all like it.

THURSDAY

Here are Eiki and Halldor in their early years.

Snowboarders aim to take the power back with a charter. Chas Guldemond gives us the lowdown on the Arctic Challenge course. We didn’t know there was a German Technine team, but it is actually not too shabby. The YES. crew shreds Revelstoke. The Illicit Snowboarder examines erotic snowboard art. Finally, we get behind the scenes at the Air&Style Munich.

FRIDAY

Flying Finns Episode 2 airs, with a bluebird Copper Mountain park session to get you amped for the weekend.

Thanks again to Geiri from Nikita we post another awesome video from back in the day in Iceland. The bros post some Snow Porn. Megan Fox shreds, apparently. The Arctic Challenge semis are on as we type this so make sure you tune in to the webcast tomorrow. That’s what we’ll be doing tomorrow, too, as there still seems to be no pow to slash. It’s on its way we hear…
