The Jolly Roger represents THE ultimate personification of the Pirate ethos. It remains, as it was at the beginning of the 18th century, the insignia of people who do not consider themselves bound by the usual rules of engagement. Two dozen riders from 12 different countries caught on 16 mm, each bringing their unique style and together raising the flag once again. The crew chased shots across 3 continents, from the mountains of Salt Lake City to the alpine snowfields of Kitzbuhel to the active volcanoes of Kamchatka. Expect innovative backcountry snowboarding, creative city jibs and sh*t loads of powder, all wrapped up in the typical analog Pirate style.

The DVD will come with a 100-page art book again, packed with various works from motivated Pirates, including the riders.

Riders:
Danny Larsen, Juuso Laivisto, Emeric Front, Gigi Rüf, Hans Ahlund, Tyler Chorlton, Marco Feichtner, Marko Grilc, Drew Fuller, Dimi Fesenko, Markus Keller, Eirik Haugo, Elias Elhardt, Björn Hartweger, Teo Konttinen, Kalle Ohlson, Sani Alibabic, Stephan Maurer, Osa, Jocki Köffler, Mike Casanova, Lukas Goller, Filippo Kratter, Blair Habenicht

It's a major award... feel the win!

Thanks for all of you who came out and made High Cascade Snowboard camp this summer. The summer concluded with the Golden Marshmallow awards in which the best of the best from each department was voted by camp. Kirk Kaufman won Digger of the year. He accepted the award in true digger fashion. I won most helpful in the demo center, I was also the only person in there most of the summer. Be on the lookout for some edits coming your way via me.Digger of the year

A Long Journey…SASS Bound

Okay only after 5 flights and 2 bus rides, we actually made it to Bariloche and South America Snow Sessions http://www.sasnowsessions.com Snow is looking a bit bare, but words of a storm on the horizon.

Security in South America is completely refreshing from America. Walk in with your shoes, belt, everything. Most places didn’t even have huge bins for you to put your stuff. You just walk in and if you signal the alarm, they ask what you have….and your in!
The bin of forbidden items. Just toss it in if they tell you too.

Arrived in Buenos Aires at a completely different terminal from the rest of the team. Waited for an hour and then decided to go look for everyone. For some reason Customs was completely closed, so entered Argentina without even a Customs check….tadow (that’s for Joel).
Took a bus to another airport to catch our flight to Bariloche...courtesy of SASS and Ramon. Probably would've ended up lost. Thanks guys.

Argentina update from Yoshida

So, if you’ve been following the blogs, you know that the K2 snowboarding team is down here in Argentina.  We’ve been lucky enough to be hosted by the SASS (South American Snow Session) camp, and it has been the trip of a lifetime!  Joining us, just two days ago was Leanne Pelosi, along with Shaun Mckay, Eero, Robbie J, Gretchen Bleiler, myslef, Winkel, and the Joel, we have set out to find powder, eat massive amounts of steak, and stack a large amount of lifeys, and product shots.  We’ve been shooting on the new products for 2010-2011, and I have to say that the next years graphics are poppin’, and off the chain this year!  Here’s a couple shots from my travels…..I can’t release any a grade bangers, but these phots will have to do for now!

Sass/Bariloche Winter Break Extravaganza!

Hola Amigos y Amigas! I’m just hanging out in my apartment at the Sass Camp getting ready to head back to the States after a 6 day adventure in the A Factor. The A Factor is name for Argentina and the way this country operates, which is in a way unlike any other. Lots of their ways don’t make sense to us fast past Americans, but this is the beauty of Argentina and the experience. See the below picture for a perfect A Factor example. This is a picture of our shower. Notice that the shower head is in an unusual place (one might say it’s in the wrong spot, but in Argentina there is no wrong spot).

Camp life was great; the Sass crew is really opening up some amazing opportunities for kids to come down and learn about a different culture and how to ride backcountry conditions in a safe way.  Everyone here is super nice, knowledgable and accomadating and lodge life is never complete without the token big dog and here she is; Mauria in all of her glory!

The vibe in Bariloche the last 6 days was very winter break style.  Tons of people celebrating winter.  There were parades

there were snow polo matches

Apparently every High School Senior in Argentina takes a trip to Bariloche and they come and they all wear the same outfits.  This is team orange mixed in with a little bit of team red.  Guaranteed good lifestyle shots were taken here!

It snowed everyday that we were here.  The first few days it was more like slush and less like snow but yesterday was the real deal and we got a fun powder day and got some shots for the catalog.

We also got an up close and personal experience in their totally unique bamboo forests!  We kind of explored a little bit too far off the beaten path and really found ourselves thick in bamboo, had to hike out and would have liked to have had a machete, but an experience we will never forget!

So thank you to everyone who helped us along our way everyday!  Thanks Argentina, thanks Sass and thanks Bariloche for a great experience!

Roller World!

Today was the last day of session six up here at High Cascade Snowboard Camp. Unfortunately we woke up to a rainy mountain so we didn’t hit the slopes. But a day without snowboarding just means a day of roller skating! With a crew of campers we loaded the Awesome bus and headed to a magical place called Roller World! -Tim
