If you are into Danny Larsen, this has been your week. An ESPN and a Yobeat interview as well as a Day in the Life within seven days. What more could you ask for? Without waiting for your answer we just throw everything at you that is remotely within the triangle snowboarding – wack – awesome. Enjoy our latest edition of This Week in Snowboarding!
Danny Larsen talks about metal art. Nick Visconti is now a Session rider. Cody Beiersdorf’s full part from Poachers X is worth your attention. Yobeat continues to reject bad edits. Seb Toots wins an FIS big air comp in Sweden.

Nick Dirks stars in the third Airblaster Family Portrait. Dani Rajcsanyi keeps things sick and simple. The O Chas G shows you how to do a front blunt switch up half cab out on a down rail.

Heavy urban shredding goes down in Absinthe’s latest Flipside episode. You’re into girls? Then check this TTR edit of women in snowboarding. Check these Mt Baker early season pow slashes! Transworld Snow presents 10 noteworthy collaborations of the season. But who cares, the Onboard x 686 outerwear is the best (AND you can win it!) Whoever the L1 Kids are, they went to Brighton. Scotty Lago talks about his plans. JP Walker gives Spatziba the horn, and Gigi talks about his exceptional career on the same site (and here he is at work in Canada and Switzerland). Erin Comstock and Robin Van Gyn take you on a tour-de-Utah. German Benny Urban had some footage left over from Mt Hood. Burton kid Mark Sollors drops a few bangers here. Ice Mountain Rail Battle anyone?
Danny Larsen spends a day in Avoriaz, and some time with Yobeat, too. The Ästhetiker crew travels a lot. The Gothenburg Rail Battle video looks tight. Boreal’s 2nd Team Video Challenge is taking off: check the Academy edit for example. Zac(h) Marben plays the guitar. ESPN called Chris Grenier. Learn how to stick front inverts here. Mason Aguirre, Forest Bailey et al shred Mammoth. Peetu Piiroinen still rides for Burton. The Nike 6.0 Stairset Battle is all over the place.

More Boreal TVC stuff can be found here. Kyle Miller seems to be in good control of his snowboard. And who would have thought: Girls and bungee cords mix well. The Analog Design Unlikely Features competition continues. Simon Gruber is featured in our wallpaper of the week. Juuso Laivisto is drunk but answers three questions nonetheless. Here’s the full Oh Frankie, What Did You Do This Time movie. Mitch Tölderer climbs some mountain in Equador. The Air&Style goes China, too. Werni Stock stomps a Switch Back 12. And Peter König invents the squirrelpult.
The Kotsenburgs and friends ride Park City. Here’s the second ‘Powder and Rails’ Terry Kidwell part. The classic Neoproto movie gets re-released here. Vera Janssen joins the ranks of people with online video parts, and so does Swiss ripper Mario Käppeli. Eero Ettala posts a sick edit of him and friends shredding in Ruka.

Good weekend everyone…
