Team Report 6-6-07
Summer is pretty much around the corner and the snowboard season is almost over. Boooohoooo!
Here’s what the ThirtyTwo team riders are up to:
Freddy Austbo had a pretty productive spring filming with the Standard crew in Whistler last month. He sat through the dreary, inconsistent weather in Whistler, but it paid off in the end. He’s back in Norway skating and enjoying the nice weather. Be sure to check out Freddy’s part in Standard Films new flick due out in September.
Dustin Craven has been busy filming with the Capita crew all season long. He’s up in Whistler at the moment trying to milk the last bit of backcountry sledding ‘til the wee hours of the night. Be sure to check out his part, as well as Tyler Lepore’s part in (First Kiss) due out sometime this fall.

John Jackson pretty much wrapped up his part filming for Standard Films this season. He took a little break after the Whistler park session and ventured down to Southern California to meet up with some of his sponsors (ThirtyTwo and Etnies). After raiding the Sole Technology company store, John wrenched on his truck and gave it a little tune up. Be sure to check out John’s part in Standards new flick due out in September. Will he get the opening part or the closing?
Markku Koski is chillin’ in Finland taking care of his shoulder. After dislocating it a few times this season he went under the knife again to tighten up some loose ends. Luckily the doctor said everything looked okay and he’s already working on his PT. Markku spent a good amount of time this season filming with Defective Films – Child Support so be on the look out for premiere dates.

Tyler Lepore spent most of his time filming with the Capita crew this year - clocking in some quality time. He spent most of his winter in Canada keeping a tight schedule, filming as well as working on his art. Tyler also spent some time recently working on a new passion of his - track bikes. Ty has been spending some time starting up a new shop in East Vancouver, which specializes in track bikes. He’s currently working on the entire project so be sure to check it out if you’re into it. www.superchampionship.com
Janna Meyen is getting geared up to do some summer shredding. She’ll be coaching at High Cascade this summer. Her signature session starts in June, so be sure to get up to Mt. Hood and shred with Janna! www.highcascade.com
Hampus Mosesson recently flew back home to Sweden to take some time off after a grueling season. He spent most of the winter filming with Mack Dawg films bouncing back and forth from Europe to the States. We caught up with the Hamp-man while he was getting some dental work done. New Grillz?
Have you seen Leanne Pelosi? She was last seen at Ms. Super Park in Mammoth and I believe she may be in Whistler right now? Anyways, check out Leanne’s current film project and be sure to come out to the premiere and support the ladies. www.runwayfilms.com

Benji Ritchie took a little break, after banging out a ton of shots with the White Out crew this season. (Still Bastard) will be released sometime this fall so be sure to check back for details.
Stian Solberg made it back to Norway and jumped right into the world of television with a scene on some TV network, he then headed up to Folgefonna to get his shred on. The snow conditions weren’t as great as he expected. He reported that Folgefonna had too much snow? Weird? Anyways, Stian will make his way back this summer to attend a few summer camps: Camp of Champs, Windell’s and High Cascade.
Wille Yli-Luoma has been quite the multi-tasker. He was last seen in Southern California working with some of his sponsors, as well as moving into his new home in Oregon. Wille wrapped up his video part with Mack Dawg just within the last couple of weeks.
Considering how bad this season was, Wille was confident with the footage he was sitting on. Can’t wait to check it out!
