This Week in Snowboarding #19

We’re a bit in a rush today as we have to leave for the annual event in Zürich. Luckily, after we used some caning and a lot of yelling our internet helpers of obscure ethnicities came up with more internet snowboard greatness from the past week than we could have hoped for. Indulge!

After all, that stamp did taste a little weird.


Justin Hostynek of Absinthe fame has a chat with Transworld Snowboarding, so does Danny Davis (video interview part 2). The Agnarchy blog discusses whether Yobeat sold out or not. A Swiss snowboarder created a sanitary tampon brand. No shit! (link is in German) The Bear Mountain Paint It Red movie gets released.


Not much going on but the Helgasons pumping out video after video.

Whitelines has the British Snow Tour big air, boarder-x and slopestyle highlights. Baw Baw’din episode 6 offers more thunder from down under. Kaitlyn Farrington joins The North Face. The Angry Snowboarder attends the worst snowboard movie premiere in history. And if we haven’t said so before, Donny Diamond is pure gold!


Absinthe release their second Flipside episode, featuring Cale Zima and Dan Brisse. And This Camp of Champions throwaway footy is really good. Sexton, Huot, Chamberlain, Jones and Walker shred Newfoundland. Four Swiss people predict the outcome of the upcoming event. A nice teaser makes you want to attend the Stubai glacier opening.

Never Summer could sue the entire snowboard industryWhoaSnow explains what you can do with a couple of leftover propane tanksLaura Hadar explains how to make her favourite pasta sauce, and Marko Grilc is now officially an escort boy.

Loud, reckless, annoying: Alarm clocks are a scourge of humanity.

Forum releases a second F’It teaserHoppipolla is a new headwear brand with a banging intro videoNick Visconti wins the exquisit Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails event. 32 release their own Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails highlight video, but we top it with two more great edits from the eventJamie Nicholls is still down with the dryslope scene.

Whitelines have the TSA Winter Games highlights as well as the Westbeach Snowflex Series Aberdeen highlights and want you to re-edit a snowboard movie. We have the rider list and schedule for the upcoming, Kevin Backstrom will be there, too – and has posted a nice edit from his friends Tor and Ludde.
