Wait a minute! It’s been another week already? Then it is high time for our popular “This Week in Snowboarding”. Once again our underage, malnourished interns’ sore fingers have dug out a lot of internet gems from the world of shred. If you feel you are too busy right now to go through our collection of awesomeness please be reminded of Bertrand Russell’s wise words: “Time you enjoy wasting isn’t wasted time.”
Technically, most of these are links from last Friday, but what the heck, they are just too good: The CWGKA Snowboard Throwdown gets filmed in a classy tilt-shift look, Our Cup of Tea is a conclusive lo-fi production from Sweden, and holy cola: The Split the Sin is quite a banger from Canada and Sweden. Videograss jibs Brighton, the Windells session no. 4 looks dope, Hannah Teter wins a do-good award, JP Walker gets humbled in Barcelona, Travis Parker still knows how to cash in, the Volcom Avalanche takes place somewhere in Chile (and offers some more tilt-shift views), Spatziba does High Cascade in decent style, DC might have sold their Mountain Lab, and everyone should know how to do a proper method. I said EVERYONE!
Salomon wins the Transworld Team Shootout with this killer video. Two more Right Brain Left Brain mini teasers see the light of the internet. Happily Apo stays clear of financial turmoil. The TTR kicks off down under. Same Ol’ Streets is a darn fine movie from Quebec or whatever French Canada is called these days. Meet Denis Leontyev, the “Russian Bradshaw.”, and Grilo, the red eyed monster from Bali.
The day kicks off with some fantastic crashes from Windells. Then there’s yet another Comune teaser. The YES crew discuss girls at the Camp of Champions. Polish jib legend Wojtek Pawlusiak gets his shred on in Les2Alpes. We give away tons of shred gear, and in other news Mikey LeBlanc is a great actor, JP Walker nabs a sunblock sponsor, and Jonas Carlson is the man.
Whitelines relaunch their website and bring us jibbing Jeremy’s full part from The B Movie. Spanish scientists found the formula for a truly endless winter. We still publish a print mag, and it looks sick. Airblaster puts out a racy Airbabes vid. After 400 years of debate the US and Canada agree on the same avalanche danger scale.
The Windells session 5 includes a little pie fight. DVS releases a nifty Eero Ettala ad, featuring both his supreme skate and snowboard skills. Someone has too much time on their hands and produces a best of 2010/11 teasers teaser.
That’s all the shabazz for this week, folks. Now have a good weekend – and don’t forget: It’s all about being proactive!
