Shredding and the Internet dry hump.
The late John Archibald Wheeler, apparently a big shot in theoretical physics, once said: “Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.” And it is also what makes us come up with a new This Week in Snowboarding every week. Smart-people shit and snowboarding, kablam! Once again here are the highlights from this week’s snowboarding, drawn from our own site and other places that are actually good.
No Joke seems to be a decent movie from Canada. But hands down, Share the Wealth looks even better. And Jeremy Jones charging down one gnar of a line doesn’t look too bad, either. 60s surf rock in a teaser is always a plus: Be Happy teaser. The Videograss crew have fun between their shots. And a Polish dude attempts to snowboard the Nanga Parbat.
Seb Toots has won the Billabong Ante Up contest, as this video documents. And Matts Kulisek did something scary at the same event. Watch this clip and this teaser and join the Les2Alpes summer camps. Watch that teaser and go to Japan. The Ästhetiker rip some summer pow in Hintertux. YES Snowboards bag an award. Annie Boulanger is a rad chick. (By the way, the surf in Iceland looks sick!) The 2018 Winter Olympics host race is down to three.
Videograss release their epic Bon Voyage teaser, and FODT release the equally classy The Arena teaser. And there’s more teasers: Bald-E-Gal, The Völkl team can’t surf. And Tamworth sees some good riding, too.
The teaser for 9191, the Gigi movie, is out, and it looks oh so good. The German 21Inch teaser pops up on our site. The kids make the flakes fly at HCSC session #1. The What’s Up teaser hails from Quebec. Sandbox hit up the DC Mountain Lab. Meet “the Andreas Wiig of the Andes“. Check out this awesome Burton x Tron collabo, because you’re all probably a hipster.
Watch bHappy‘s mellow last day at Northstar (warning, includes some skiing). The Cardona park down under looks gooood. The Japanese Catch Me teaser is good stuff. If you have a lot of time, watch this long German edit, or this equally long True Color clip. Speaking of Germans, their Playboard magazine turned 15 (congrats!). Kazu is the man! But do you know Charlie Idda? While we have been awarded the ‘Do Nothing Award’ several times Hannah Teter might be in for VH1′s ‘Do Something’ version. The first week of summer camp in Val Senales was a success. The pow in Brighton, too. And there will be a big air event in Las farking Vegas!
The first of Think Thank’s first Right Brain Left Brain mini teasers is out. The Dew Hut Jam hails with a clip from Australia. Fluofun post a lot of next season’s board information on their site. Unfortunately, it’s all in French. Watch Andy Wright‘s 08/09 slideshow. And it is so hot in Vermont right now, you can have BBQs. Indoors.
That’s all for this week, folks. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t drink too much!
