The penultimate Onboard mag of the season drops like a hot potato, and what a tater this motherbanger is. Here’s but some of what you can expect within…
- Wrapped up with issue 104 comes the third cinematic adventure from Yeahh Productions, entitled Yeahh Love. The Yeahh crew spent the whole of last season traveling the globe with their heavy hitting roster of riders and, as we’ve come to expect, tied all the footage together in a creative manner, the likes of which only Yeahh can do. To complement the film, we’ve taken a look on set at what the process meant to all involved.
- After years of near misses, almost theres and so frickin closes, we finally can bring you the interview with France’s most prolific rider of the past few years – Mathieu Crepel. La Crepe’s 16 pager packs in a host of humdingers, from perfect back sevens to perfect powder pokage. We can only say this: It’s been worth the wait.
- Morocco is probably not the first place you’d think of heading to shred, but nevertheless that’s what the Scrapbook Project dudes did, eschewing the coast’s long right handers for some exotic snowsliding. Dodging scorpions, hitching rides on mules and eating kofta added to the intrigue of shredding a stone’s throw from the Sahara.
- Senior shooter Matt Georges launches himself into the hands of fate on a Rossignol Roll the Dice road trip. Inspired by the novel, Dice Man, he and the crew are at the mercy of the dice for the duration of this 2-week trip, and – as you know – the dice don’t always play nice…
Plus there’s a look at what trashed out snow can offer with a little motivation and inspiration in Playground, a Trickology with some left of field antics, a peek into David Benedek’s crib, plus all the regulars, news and winnables you’d ever need.
