Despite the blue sky and the sunshine, it was snowing last Saturday in Lausanne!

The snowboarders and freestyle skiers were stoked with the conditions. 50 riders had come along to try and win entry to the up and coming CHAMPS Rip Curl Open, which will take place in Crans-Montana in February 2007.

Scene One: Opens on a group of young snowboarders, travelling in a minibus down a darkened stretch of French Auto route, the rain hammering down on their windscreen. Nervously they look at each other as they notice the thumping of heavy raindrops on the roof of the van slowly die out and stop. The fear reflected in their eyes turns to pure excitement as the first snowflakes starts to descend silently, beginning the deluge of white, blanketing the minibus and the surrounding countryside as they continue slowly to their destination… The Trois Vallees.
Isenseven celebrates it's new home at the 2nd reality number 1, Myspace. Exclusively on their Myspace-page, you'll get the chance to watch Isensevens first online video clip ever produced, back in 2001 - even a year before "New Noise" came out. It's full of unsticked tricks, funny styles and the lamest handrail you can imagine. The editors didn't have any clue how to use the software, the cameramen didn't have any clue how to hold a camera. But still - we love it! Hey, everyone has to start somewhere.

Top-of-the-line board from Flow, featuring all the sintered, Structurned, quadraixial glassed, carbon reinforced, lightweighted response you’d expect at such a level. Built to grab all terrain riding firmly by the horns, the directional twin shaped Infinite is the preferred ride of Miikka Hast and Ryan Paris, and is assembled around Flow’s Whiskey X design. This is four connected titanium alloy energy plates sat on the wood core that directs riders’ energy precisely where it’s needed whilst still allowing torsional flex beneath the feet. The result? Superb turn initiation and banging edge hold in all conditions. For aggressive riders wanting the world on a stick, the Infinite would surely suffice.
