Snowboarding in 2013: A Year in Review

Summer and fall was filled with a zillion summer camp edits, teasers and a deep, unsettled longing for powder.

Travis Rice, Mark Carter, Mark Landvik, Jussi Oksanen, Mikey Rencz, Andreas Wiig, Frederik Kalbermatten and Pat Moore all dropped their own backcountry parts in the middle of a sweltering summer to be voted on. We weren’t complaining. Watch ’em here.

Scotty Vine Full Part

Scotty Vine pushed the boundaries again with another super sick full part featuring a one-foot double backflip:
