Standard Films “The Storming”

I finally saw Standard Films’ ‘The Storming’ at Red Rocks, in Colorado. The venue is insane. Jaw dropping view of Denver with these massive monolith type rocks that exude from the ground to form a natural amphitheater. Last night was a unique experience because it was the first time a snowboard event had ever been held there, and it was also the biggest crowd I’ve ever been able to be apart of to watch snowboarding. There was over 6 thousand people there, and everyone had their eyes fixated on the screen, in anticipation of each new trick being thrown down. The cheering was amazing, and so were the mazes underneath the stage, where acts like U2, Beatles, Hendrix & Stevie Nicks had played before. So fucking cool. We definitely took advantage of running around down there, checking out every signature on the walls, walls that had existed since the early 1900’s. Hana Beaman, Erin Comstock, Raewyn Reid, Torstein Horgmo & Sammy Lubke were all there to see the film for their first time. Judging by the crowd, the Standard crew killed it this year. This is a fast paced movie, with non-stop banger shots. The pace of the movie doesn’t really slow down at all, and ends with you wanting more. Sammy Lubke had first part, with tons of amazing big AK lines. Halldor Helgason had the next part and destroyed it with the song ‘we didn’t start the fire’. He has so many tricks, I couldn’t get my head around what he even did. Eiki had a rad part too. Torstein had the ender with a bunch of doubles and the triple and whatever else you can do on a snowboard. Oh yeah, I loved watching Kazu, he just kills powder, pipe and park with such good style. Finally, I was stoked to see a hefty girls part in the movie, the first time this many girls have been included in Standard’s 19 year history! I have to watch it again to get the full feel of who did what, but definitely a video worth checking out.

Ciao!

Comida de Chile

I just got back from the K2 Chile trip and holy cow I’ve got a lot of photos. I’ve sorted through them and organized them into three categories. The first blog installment is all about food. The food in Chile is mostly simple dishes. Not very much spice or a ton of flavor but it’s always fresh. There main industry is produce so the fruit and vegetables are plentiful and I finally get to eat palta (avocado) at pretty much every meal which is always a dream of mine. Also if you like yourself some meat, the beef in South America is top notch and a staple of their cuisine. I found the most common dishes you will find are meat and potato style plates, sandwiches filled with meat and guacamole, delicious breads, as well as classics form all over the world (Pizza, Crepes, Hot Dogs, etc.) All in all the food is tasty, it’s definitely not exotic by any means, but it’s delicious and nutritious! Here’s some food photo’s…enjoy!
