The one-hundred-and-eighth edition of Onboard European Snowboard Magazine has dropped in all good shred stores and news agents across Europe. And there is some real gnarlatronic action and inspiring words in there to get you pumped to dust off your shred sword, that’s for sure. Here’s just some of the highlights…
Free Ero One movie – Stick ‘Em Up
Coming free and exclusive with this issue is the French movie crew Ero One‘s new hammer hitter, Stick ‘Em Up. With a crew of up-and-comers mixed in with some established faces, you’ll want to get your eyes involved with this one. Starring: Chris Cunningham, Vincent Pages, Dimitri Biau, Florent Marot, Joel Strecker, Julien Haricot and more. There’s also a gallery of stills for toilet times, and you can find out more by reading the interview with Ero One-er, Vincent Pages.
Tyler Chorlton Interview
We’ve been trying to get this one dialled for a couple of seasons, so we’re pretty damned stoked to bring you an interview with Great Britain’s most talented rider, Mr. Tyler Chorlton. We get the chit-chat on where he’s from, where he’s been and where his at to accompany the super-strong riding he delivered over the course of last winter’s shooting schedule.
Absinthe Films celebrate 10 years in the game this year and mark it in some style. Neverland is perhaps their most complete movie to date and Danny Burrows gets his teeth into what it’s all about by chatting to Absinthe’s Justin Hostynek and Patrick Armbruster, with heavy action shots from the likes of Travis Rice, Gigi Rüf, DCP and Wolle Nyvelt. Check our exclusive Gigi edit, and the Neverland Tour documentaries too.
Onboard Girls Week
At the beginning of last March, Onboard corralled some of the sickest ladyshreds in the game to Silvretta/Montafon and let them off the chain for a week. Sarka Pancochova, Alexis Waite, Hana Beaman, Margot Rozies, Leanne Pelosi, Lisa Filzmoser and Silvia Mittermüller scrapped with Pirates, dodged avvies and bagged bangers in an eventful seven days. Check the movie of the Onboard Girls Week for more.
Larging Up The Pyrennees
Upon hearing word of a beast of a kicker being assembled in the backcountry, Youri Barneoud assembled a crack squad of French shred heads and beelined for the little-known Pyrennean resort of Les Angles. Victor Delerue, Gerome Mathieu and cover star Mathieu Justafre were but some of the duders sending themselves off El Burro. Watch the movie of this session NOW!
We guess there’s not much to do in the depths of mid-winter in northern Sweden. To cope with the day-long dark, Peter Lundström goes Super Mario crazy with Kalle Ohlson, Anton Gunnarsson and Halldor Helgason as we delve into snowboarding’s chequered relationship with video games.
Plus we deal X-Games winner Jenny Jones a 13 For Luck, give a lowdown on Mutant Board Tech, have a peek into Jussi Oksanen‘s pad and a whole bunch more. Go get it.
