Snowboarding in 2013: A Year in Review

By October most of the major snowboard movies were dropping or had dropped and we were getting hyped to strap on our boards again. 

OCTOBER:

Euro X Games ditched

October started off with some depressing, albeit fairly inevitable news that the entire X Games Europe venture (both winter and summer) would be ditched going forward. No more X Games Tignes, and no more summer X Games in Munich or Barcelona. Sad times for all of the action sports fans in Euroland.

The Reels Film Festival goes off in Annecy

All the riders, filmers and producers in one shot.

The annual Reels film festival in Annecy, France was another success, bringing together riders, production crews and media to celebrate snowboard filmmaking. Our French editor was on hand to report back on the nominees, winners and essential movies of the season.

Shaun White fuck-fest on the internet

Shots of Shaun White’s private training facility in Australia leak to the internet and internet goes nuts. Plenty of snowboard sites chip in with their their two cents.
