Things are getting tough over here. Winter is approaching, and the editorial team starts going places again. It’s bad enough that we are under-staffed on most weekends, but with these massive hangovers we carry around half of the week productivity hits new lows time and again. Hell, things got that desperate we recently started looking for an intern! On a positive note we can add ever more to the weekly potpourri we call This Week in Snowboarding. And here’s issue 23…
This is what Werni Stock sees when he hits the Hintertux booters. The Forum team sessions Seven Springs. Snowboarder Mag has another Shred to Toe with Bode Merrill. We dig the German Good Question blog, and we dig their humour. By the way, the Academy Media Director knows his handplants…
Before going on strike France gave out their annual rider awards.
The Norwegians release the second I Guess… teaser. The Germanic people release the Never Get Older teaser. The Snowpark Damüls gets ready for the season. The Shreddy Times crew sessions a fun-looking tube. Yobeat has another sexy Rhode Island backyard session. Maxwell Scott delivers an awesome bonus part. The bHappy Mt Hood Summer edit is good fun. Salvation’s Fat Ass teaser looks ghetto. Speaking of which, the Preseason Prison Rules Mammoth edit takes the same line. Bataleon rider Colin Clarke hits Mt. Bachelor. The Angry Snowboarder doesn’t care about Rossignol.
Never Summer releases the Made in America full movie. We post an exclusive NowHere Müller/Blauvelt edit. Russian jib-master Denis Leontjev is rad. Pleasure Mag has a cool video from the Nike Greasebus tour. Forum has some high-tech new boots. Transworld Snowboarding honours the movember.
We take you behind the scenes of pre-season training in Hintertux. Kevin Bäckström’s online video edit looks banger! Sara Berdayes is a Spanish chick with an awesome style on rails. Speaking of Spanish: Here’s the latest Verges brothers film teaser. Johnnie Paxson talks shop on the ESPN website. The Cheers crew talks about filming in Jackson Hole. Twoleftfeet.ch runs you through the lastest Isenseven soundtrack. Curtis Woodman talks about jail, cougars, and California. The Atagge guys release a sick edit. And even though it is a bit weird, here’s some gangsta riding from Zermatt. Kyle Mack is 12 years old and is already killing it.
The Absinthe Flipside Episode 3 takes place in Laax and is yet another banger. We have the second part of Flow’s Japan trip footage and loads of yet unseen Pirates footage. Jon Weaver lets us in on the snowboard school debate. Matt Hogan does some worthwhile Whistler park laps. Spatziba unearths a gem from 2007 – the DC Sweden trip. The Mustachio has a cool edit from Gerben Verweij’s Stockholm trip. Did you know we are now playing the weekly wallpaper game, too?
A Little Somethin’ is a decent buddy flick. Canadians find a new way to free their minds: Splitnoboarding. The Stockholm Frontline Rail Jam looked siiiick. “Rail riding is getting ridiculous”, would you agree? Nima Jalali is another subject in 32′s Day in the Lifes.
That’s it that’s all for the week.
