Tweet Previously on this blog, I’ve written about the important role the local shops and groups play in the development of a scene – the snowboard scene. In return, by shopping at and supporting local stores, snowboarders can help to contribute to the development of their community… With spring getting started and summer following, I’m [...]
Tweet There are so many snowboard edits these days; so many good riders in lots of different resorts. It’s not uncommon for some of the edits to look “just like the rest”… That’s one of the reasons that this production is so refreshing.

Tweet I like to jib around, hit jumps, rails and boxes, and when I’m riding the rest of the mountain I like to either bomb it fast or try to make use of natural features. As you might expect, I love to ride powder. That doesn’t happen as often as the other stuff, so my [...]
Tweet Noboarding, Powdersurfing, this type of riding looks pretty awesome. Start by taking a look at this mini-documentary made by Jeremy Jensen from powsurf.com. http://vimeo.com/16306539 So Good.
