Pirate Movie Production presents European Premiere Tour 2010 „Hooked“ The Pirates are back on board to cruise around the world. The new film titled “Hooked” will be presented for the first time ever on the World Premiere in Innsbruck, Austria on the 10th of September 2010. But the film is not the only reason to visit the premieres. The Pirate parties are famous for featuring popular bands and DJ’s who rock the house through the night and into the morning.
Hooked they are, indeed: Hooked on wandering the continents to pillage and plunder the best snowboarding terrain in the world. The finest European riders each bringing their own unique style and collectively raising the flag once again. The crew chased the snow from the mountains of Washington to the streets of Scandinavia and all across the European Alps snowboarding creative city jibs and sh*t loads of powder. The DVD comes packaged in a 100-page art book, filled with various works from motivated Pirates, including the riders. Riders:
Halldor Helgason, Marco Feichtner, Gigi Rüf, Danny Larsen, Björn Hartweger, Hans Ahlund, Arthur Longo, Kalle Ohlson, Sani Alibabic, Teo Konttinen, Tyler Chorlton, Juuso Laivisto, Stephan Maurer, Stian Solberg, Gulli Gudmundsson, Erik Botner, Gerome Mathieu, Eiki Helgason, Elias Elhardt and more.

Ole Ole Ole! It’s that time of the year….catalog shoot time. So while many of you are probably trying to squeeze in the last few days of float life, BBQ’s, beaches, bikini’s, warm weather surf and all those other wonderful things about summer. We decided to end it early and take some of the team down to Chile to shoot the 2011.12 Catalog, and what can we say? Such a good decision!
The Mike Yoshida
First met up with K2 Staff Photographer and video cameo master Mike Yoshida. Between the two of us we had around 14 bags including our photo gear. Packed everything into my girfriend’s Subaru. Not enough room for me and Mike so we had to get a cab as well. Good times. Then we had an interesting challenge of trying to get 10 bags of product onto a jumper flight to LAX. Thanks to the counter ladies at United for the straight hook up! We met the majority of the rest of the crew in Los Angeles which consisted of Jordan Mendenhall, Travis Parker, Gretchen Bleiler, Leanne Pelosi, and one of our filmers for the trip Sam Hiltner. 13 hours, a quick stop in Lima, some delicious wine, and a couple Advil PM’s and we were in Santiago.
Customs in Chile is pretty mellow. Brought in over 30 snowboards. Helps if you pretend not to know what they are asking you.
The drive up from Santiago to the Farallones area is a fun one. Over 39 counted switch backs on a road not much wider than your car in some areas climbing around 4,000 feet. We arrived at our house for the trip right next to El Colorado Resort, one of the first houses to built up here. Farallones is next to four resorts El Colorado, Valle Nevado, La Parva, and Farallones. Every window has a view of the Andes. Not bad.
