This Week in Snowboarding #27

Tobi Strauss carping on about something or other. Yes, that's the worst caption in TWIS history right there.

Our weekly linked up love-in is wet for your probing mouse.

It sure feel like winter’s here as there’s snow on the hills, sleet in the town, and a bunch of that good stuff going down but we’re too busy internerding to get involved with any of that just yet. Thundering anus, how we would like to but we have jobs to do and obligations to fulfill, not least of which is This Week in Snowboarding


Elias Elhardt and friends play a game of SHRED in Stubai. The official video for the Frontline Rail Jam in Stockholm looks sick. The Analog Design Unlikely Features American winning design has an epic name, eBay is a great place, Joe Sexton is a good skater, Yobeat rejects more bad edits, Videograss shred Brighton on its opening day, Jess Kimura lives in a cool ‘house’, Forum loves Finland (amazing F’It edit), and don’t forget: It was Switch Stance Saturday.


Rome’s The Shred Remains has produced a large number of Europe outtakes. We have a bit of a man-crush on Forest Bailey, well at least on his riding, Andrew Hardingham is a wild guy, Drew Stevenson is even wilder (if you speak French), the Angry Snowboarder has an unlimited stock of free movies: Here’s Run the City


Erik Botner’s part from the Nitro movie is a banger, Tim Humphreys knows more than Jeremy Thompson, we release part 5 of 6 of the Ero One movie ‘Voila‘, whatever the Pitt Weird Box Jam is, here’s an edit of it. Seth Huot’s part from Cheers is fairly good, Mt Snow has yet to fire up its snow guns, the Rome team visits Avoriaz, we give away Florent Marot’s setup, Colin Langois is still a pro, and Sims still a brand, Vicci Miller gets some pow, Airblaster releases a nice Jed Anderson portrait, Utah has a Bone Zone, Burton posts the best pipe run ever (featuring Shaun White), Mountain High releases an opening day vid, and JP Walker shows how it’s done.

Elhardt and friends giving skiers Pleasure.


The TTR talks about progression, Elias Elhardt and friends rip the Pleasure Jam (and so does, kind of). All aboard the wayback machine, next stop: Tina Basich! Piotr Janosz does ‘few tricks‘, Gigi plays football in this Nike ad, the Mustachio finds the lost Bon Voyage teaser, and Jonah Owen shows a few tricks.


Weber, Smolla & Co hit an ice sculpture in Stubai, Tobi Strauss is good at carp fishing, we give away some more stuff from Nitro and 3CS, Mätäsä ends the five day Finnish movie drought on our site, Joe Sexton’s brother is an NHL player (no shit!), Jon Weaver gets busy and talks about it in his award-winning column, here’s the mythical Nike 6.0 “The Farm” edit, Smith builds its Own Private Idaho, and if we understand correctly the next X-Games will have a best method contest.

Here is a free desktop that is better than yours. Unless you already have it, in which case it is just as awesome.


The Frends Crew does Mammoth, Keegan Valaika kills in this edit, this Victor Daviet desktop background is better than yours, Travis Kennedy is still better than you, and if we haven’t posted it before: Here’s an edit of the Nike 6 video workshop in Stubai. Here are Alex Tank’s parts from last and this year’s Isenseven movie. The O’Neill Evolution is (are?) coming up, here’s Flow’s The Life Tidbits Pt 2, Adidas wants you to design a new goggle, Will Lavigne is just weird, Fips Strauss rides through this little DC edit, Fluofun shows some exceptional love for JP Walker (who’s just launched his own blog here), everyone likes Bob Carlson, and the TTR World Championships 2012 are set for Oslo.


Lord Johannes Brenning of Johannes Century Fox and fame, finally drops his full movie Cha Dang!, on the internets to mixed reviews. Volcom rider Kari Opsal-Maeland gets her jib on at the football pitch. The final part of Ero One‘s Voila is live with Vince Pages putting down the bangs. We get the lowdown on yet another free Finnish flick, Homework, with director Petrus Koskinen. Finally, This Week in Snowboarding #27 drops, but whatever you do don’t click that link or you could find yourself sucked into a nightmare snowboard internet version of the Infinite Cat Project. You have been warned.

Till next week…
