Chris Beresford and Steve Cartwright here for ya this afternoon. These two dudes have creativity and style practically unmatched. For more on Beresford check out Think Thank’s “Mind The Video Man” and Cartwright in Snowboard Canada’s 2012 release, “Relax.” These dudes rip!
There’s nothing better than watching legendary riding along side a younger generation. Jordan Mendenhall has been dropping banger video parts since you were pooing in diapers and Nick Dirks is well on his way to doing the same. Both Nick and Jordan ripped around with Video Grass this year, check em out in “The Darkside” available now at kick ass snowboard shops and iTunes stores near you.
Steve Cartwright came through the office not too long ago to pick up some boards and chill before heading out to film with SBC’s new movie Relax. We drank some beers at the K2 bar and talked about the season; from what we can tell his video segment this fall is going to be another banger.
Hell yeah, Steve!
Alex Rodway continues to have an amazing winter. Here he is in I Ride Park City Episode 6.
Shredding from Ben and Ryan. The soundtrack is from them too!
We are sponsoring a vertical challenge and up for grabs is a new 2012-13 K2 Fastplant for the men and a new Eco Lite for the women.
To participate you must download and use the Alpine Replay app for Android and iPhone to track your vert at any mountain in North America. Vertical feet will be accumulated over the next two weekends, March 17-18 and March 24-25.
The top 30 contenders will be entered to win a new board for both men and women. Those who log at least 1,000′ will be entered to win K2 accessories at random.
The K2 Snowboarding PopThis! Tour is kicking off again. And this season with an international mission – mission 100 cm. As last year’s winner Sebi Müller from Germany popped 100 cm at the PopThis! Highest Ollie Tournament, there is a huge challenge to be met. Join in and prove your ollie skills at one of the tours stops and win a trip with the K2 pros to High Cascade Summer Camp at Mt. Hood, USA.
We will have our award-winning K2 Fastplant board with its BambooyahTM technology available that provides you with the ultimate pop in order to fullfil the mission! No registration required! The only thing you need is plenty of pop in your pants!
The tour kicks off as a part of the Hotzone.TV Park Opening in Hintertux on the first weekend in October. The final takes place in April 2012 at Camp K2, Steven’s Pass in the USA. Each tour stop winner will receive a limited-edition K2 skatedeck, designed by Don Pendleton and a watch from the new G- SHOCK collection, which is as indestructible as the K2 Fastplant. Taking part is certainly worth it!

Ski Barn just had their 2010 tent sale last week. We headed over Saturday to help out with the sale at the Lawrenceville, New Jersey store; the 90 degree weather wasn’t equating to snowboard products in many people’s minds. Good thing the great deals on the 2011 products had our back. There was some good traffic throughout the day; there were many K2 boards, bindings and boots sold! Everyone was stoked on their new set-ups! Ben, Rich, and Ryan from Ski Barn held down the place pretty well and they have a ton of knowledge so make sure you go see those guys! They’ll hook you up with the right set-up.
