Ståle Sandbech Interview
This young Norse stomper has developed from a waist-high supergrom a couple years back, to turning heads across the globe with his preternatural talent for shredding any terrain with ease. Pipe, rails, kickers? Ståle owns it all, yet his feet are still grounded. Matt Barr gets inside his head.
Raising the Bar
Snowboarding’s on acid right now. What was once unbelievable is now commonplace and the boundaries of what’s possible to achieve on a snowboard are being violated each time riders strap in. With doubles more and more common, urban riding getting out of hand, and Torstein breaking the triple out, we take a look at where progressive, technical riding is at.
On The Road in Scandinavia
Around Christmas last year, senior snapper Matt Georges shadowed a crew of riders – Gerben Verweij, Simon Gruber, Marc Salas and Mario Kaeppelli – as they took a road trip from Sweden to Finland on a mission to jib the hell out of whatever they could find in the eternal darkness.
The Keys to the Cat
Ever been in a park and thought, “It’d be so sick to take the cat and shape whatever we want”? That’s exactly what Nicolas Vincent convinced the guys in the Spanish resort of Cerler to allow him to do, and set about building a monster and a bunch of other goodness for the likes of JJ Roux, Victor De Le Rue and Benoît Thomas-Javid.
There’s a guide to the many forms of reverse camber, a wallride Trickology, Shawn Farmer chatted up in our Liftline, a gallery focussed on the exploits of the Ero One crew whose movie, Voilà, comes with free with 116, How To Know Where To Go, and much more.
