Its tough to focus sometimes at these events , There are just so many people around that you haven’t seen in a while and a ton of ” work ” to do ..
SIA can be a huge helping hand for you kids looking to move up in the world of snowboarding . Back in 2001 I went to the show when it was in Las Vegas , Going to the show gave me the opportunity to shake hands and hang out face to face with the people that ran the brands that I was riding for .
I had a chance to walk around the show and shoot this little video , I Took a few photos of some products that I thought you all might be interested in seeing .
I talked to Dan Brisse about riding the BSOD, this is what he had to say
“I ride the 159 bsod a lot in powder, I love this board for pow ! its solid , has good edge control and like a machine and charges through the chunder. It has really great flex where you can rely on your tail and your nose . Powerful board . ”
I had a chance to ask Phil Jacques about the horrorscope
” I ride the 151 or 153 , I like that its easy to press easy to lock in , stable at low and high speeds , almost feels like skateboarding , doesn’t fight back when you’re trying to do something , I really feel like i have control over it when I’m jibbing ”
The Mid life is a board that I have been working on for 9 seasons now , This year is the first year we have made any noticeable changes to the board in terms of shape.
The midlife is a mid wide version of the indoor and ourdoor series, deep side cut and wide shoulders and agressive camber made this board great but hard for some riders to handle.
This year we made the board a Zero Camber Flat deck , which helps the board ride a little smoother, flat rather than reverse still gives you the pop and power you need to stomp and ride hard , but also makes it easier to wiggle you way out of situations that more agressive camber would have tossed you down on .
I’ve been riding the 151 for jibbing a fair bit this season , and i have to say , I’m pretty excited about the new Midlife
I just spent a few days in Tokyo for the opening of a collaboration art show I was a part of with my friends Aki and Mau. More info about the installation video and art show is available on my personal site , tjschneider.com
As for shredding .. it’s still early.. Up here in Vancouver Canada we’re just starting to see a little dusting of snow on the tops of the peeks .. Last year first chair was Nov 12 at Mt Baker . This year its going to be a little later . Until then , I hope you enjoy this little montage of CAPiTA / Union Shreds Jared Dawoud , Scott Blum , Jess Kimura. And BOND riders AJ Ogden and Parker Duke. Huge Thanks to these Guys ( and Girl ) for sending in that footage.
