Our new print issue goes on sale today! If you need more reasons to buy it other than it’s Europe’s biggest and best-selling snowboard magazine, read on! This month’s mag is once again filled with some fine shred porn as well as profound features, interviews, and regulars. For example…
CIRCULAR – Riders that Kill It All
Snowboarding today is becoming increasingly specialised. Where it was once the case that riders would regularly film pow kickers, hit up rails, straightline chutes and dip into some contests throughout the course of a winter, it’s far more common to be ‘the rail guy’ or ‘the pipe guy’ or ‘the backcountry guy’. Our English editor set out to find and talk to the few who buck the trend and are ‘well-rounded riders’…
CHANGING TACK – The Pirates’ Journey from Super 8 to HD
Onboard caught up with Basti Balser, member of the original six Pirates and now helmsman of the good ship Pirate Movie Production, to ask him how things have changed from the shaky Super 8 footage of their first movie Decent Frames to the RED camera eye candy that is their latest flick Distorted Reality.
VICTOR DAVIET – Gap’s Golden Child
Victor Daviet often leaves an unanimous impression. For his riding buddies, he’s the positive asset that ensures motivation and good vibes in a session. For the observers like Onboard, he mixes tech and airtime in the backcountry, and he’s improving his sklls every season. Our French editor and Victor sat down for a talk.
Unlike many of his Finnish peers, Sami Luhtanen shies away from the contest scnee, works with various film crews, and has a unique style that makes him stand out from the crowd. We caught up with Sami to find out more about the ‘silent killer.’
