And yet another week comes to a close. And even though it is June and our minds are more focused on margaritas, mini skirts and midfielders (the world cup is about to kick off), there is still a surprisingly constant stream of snowboard information available on the Internet. Here are the highlights from this week’s snowboarding, drawn from our own site and other places that are actually good.
Kevin Pearce has been welcomed home (includes great pics of the day). Slopestyle becomes part of the FIS world championships (and maybe the Olympics). Torah Bright and Jake Welch got married. In other Southern Hemisphere news the resorts down under begin to open their doors. The German 21inch Crew releases a decent teaser called Restless. Kevin Backstrom bought a boat. And someone invented a real hover board!
There are at least two different Brightons, at least one of which has been visited by the Videograss crew. A good snowboard book gets a great review. And True Life has always been a great snowboard flick: Watch it here in full length!
Torstein Horgmo sent us a link to a clip showing the first ever triple cork. Ever wondered why your snowboard video does not look anything like That’s It That’s All? Here’s the answer. A twelve-year-old rides better than us. And TW Snow posts Travis Parker’s full part in Robot Food’s Lame.
Torstein beat the Helgasons‘ attempts at the triple. The stunning Moose with Hat teaser is out. Iceland is more than bankrupt and a big volcano: It has also been the backdrop of Nikita‘s team shoot. Fips Strauss rides Serfaus. And kids, don’t forget: hitting rails is dangerous!
Peter König, Tom Klocker, Chris Kröll and Werni Stock have fun in Hintertux. The upcoming Nitro movie will include some wince-inducing slams. Aimee Fuller had an epic season. Rhode Island rail riding rocks! And so does the Tailgate Alaska, sissies!
It’s in French, it’s called School of Shred, and it looks good! Reverse camber is no cheating, says the Angry Snowboarder. Whitelines’ Fashion Police post is very funny. Technine has taken to tunnels. Grilo is still living the dream (includes playmates).
