I just got Sipping Jetstream’s second movie, called Castles in the sky in the mail. It’s SICK!
Meet Julian Fürsinger. He is a young up-and-comer from Switzerland who wishes he was Spiderman and thinks Jesus is “kind of a freak”. He rides with the style dial cranked way up, so look out for him cause he’s going to be making some noise through the shred-vine soon. Julian Fürsinger. Who are ya!? Who are ya!?

Ok so this has nothing to do with snow-boarding but I have been boarding, only on the waves. And since it is summer, I am sure some one out there in Cyber Space gives a damn, and would like to see some summer time action… Well my friend(s)….Here you go…………………
Thats it, for now! Stay tuned for more!
Think Thank hit High Cascade the other night with a most excellent premier of the new movie “Right Brain Left Brain.” The stadium(HCSC Skate Bowls) was packed with with viewers of all ages shapes and sizes. Every rider in the movie except maybe two or three were there all ready to see the video for the first time. The movie is a journey through the brain of Think Thank. There is two discs…a right brain and a left brain. Both discs are about 25 minutes or so and both discs are jam packed action. The right brain has the more “creative” riding and the left brain has the more “stock” riding but “stock” is a stretch as far as Think Thank goes. It’s all freestyle boarding at its finest. All in all the video was thoroughly enjoyed by the viewers and was highly entertaining. Thanks Think Thank and thanks High Cascade for a most triumphant evening of entertainment. Party on!
I just made it to Chile and could not be more happy on my decision to spend 2 months here this season! Today was a perfect first day up at Chile’s favorite ski resort, Valle Nevado. New snow, tons of sun and tons of cute Chileanas……Today was 2for1 day, so lots of people skip everything and come ride “ratta” style!! Arnau y Luis at Valle Nevado were a huge help today, not to mention Nico Demetrio showing me all the fun senders!!!
Chilean people are incredible, they love all the best things; food, family, snowboarding, the Jackson 5………..I am very excited to spend the next 2 months in the midst of such positive, spanish-speaking people……….
Just a lil’ update from Mt. Hood! Last week was my signature session at High Cascade, as well as the women’s k2 alliance product testing week. It was awesome to check out the new line for 2011. There’s definitely some sick product that I can’t wait to get on! We’ll be shooting the catalog with the K2 team in Chile coming up in August…so not too many sleeps to go and we’ll be shredding some deep pow and getting some soul turns in. Yes!
So back to HCSC…one of my favorite features at high cascade was the airbag. I was pretty skeptical of the whole idea when it came out because I’d heard of so many people getting hurt. I passed by a bunch of campers so unbelievably stoked that they’d gotten all these tricks they’d been working on, so I figured I might as well give it a go. It didn’t seem like many people were getting hurt, and I saw some carnage go down! One of my first tries I rotated a backflip so slowly that I had time to visualize everything possible that was going to go wrong before my face hit the bag. And all I got was a bruised ego. So…from there, I decided that this was a good thing for my snowboarding. I’m getting to work on some tricks that I haven’t had the chance to try in awhile.
