check it out , say hi leave a comment ,
I’m so stoked that I have been able to create a project like The Snowboard Realms.
That’s reached so many people and spread such a positive vibe about snowboarding.
Editing this movie, I found myself with a huge smile on my face. And I hope that you guys feel the same. That it reminds you that there’s more to snowboarding than the hype, that it’s about the story and the good times spent with friends.
Days like this, for me, are what snowboarding is about.
I mentioned that I would like to talk to you about how to get a job in the industry.
I don’t know a ton, but I’ll do my best to help you where I can..
This is just my opinion, and there are many..
“How do I become a pro?”
This is probably the most common question I receive.
There are a million answers, but this is a pretty common recipe for success.
In my opinion these are the best things you can do
A couple of weeks ago Capita unlocked this and made it live.
Super bummed that I missed this one this year.
Last year was a blast.. there was a huge lack of snow but no lack of awesome.
This year however, Europe’s been getting dumped on, and the Deeluxe crew took full advantage of the situation.
here is the email I received this morn.
With a smile on my face I want to thank everyone, and especially the helpers and sponsors for a great 2nd Montafon Banked Slalom!
The event was a big success and I hope everyone who joined us had fun. The day was a perfect experience with good people, banks, banks, and more banks, good music, BBQ, beer and warm spring weather.
The course was challenging, so in the end times ranged from 1:26 – 4 min, but all 89 snowboarders managed to race down the course and reached the finish line without any injuries, except for burning legs, fiery lungs and the high of adrenaline.
At the prize giving we honored those who came from the furthest away to join us, the slowest, the oldest and of course the fastest. After the prize giving the fun continued with a great atmosphere and nice people at the after party.
So thanks again to those who were there and who supported us.
Stay Banked! Cheers!

YEAH Ummm… sooo, Pow… enough said.
Music By Luke , The Romany Rye… buy it
Ok so man … this was a week of first for me …
I had never really, properly ridden the Capita Charlie Slasher.
You may remember I had it out a couple of years ago in Japan when spring sprung its ugly face a few weeks too soon. So… the Charlie, Mind blowing ! I love that you can set it up centered on the insert pack, keeping enough tail to really pop off and push through those epic pow turns that this thing is meant for. Bottom line, I have never felt so confident launching off things into pow at majorly high speeds.. Baldface top to bottom in a minute and a half.. RULING DECK !
This was also the first real test for the new Holden stuff I’ve been rolling..
You guys may remember Scotty Wittlake.. Holden teamed up with him to design a great bib pant.
I was a little worried when I felt the stretch fabric but was blown away. never wet and wearing the bib kept all that wonderful pow from blasting up my Jacket. Very pleasantly surprised.
Of course I rolled my usual Bern Macon lid … Number 1 for me. I no longer shred without the lid. Shits just not worth it to die for. I also like to blast through trees, its nice to feel protected…not to mention if you rag doll down the hill your gogs don’t get tossed off your head (I wear my goggle strap inter my helmet)
Gloves .. the usual, My Drop DPI model , thin and perfect. I hate big and bulky.
Deeluxe Rough Diamond 5 … was a little bummed that my new 6’s were sitting at my desk in Vancouver but these boots are the shit ! the double power strap keeps em tight on the ankle so I rolled em pretty much un-tied and just let my binding do the rest of the work.
Oh and of course Union … I actually can’t say much about what I was riding… AMAZING ! We do bindings that are designed to work in all directions.. I was a little bit skeptical… but really stoked on these jammers. Cross your fingers and prey they make em.
OH WE ALSO HAVE SOME NEW ITEMS or well items back in stock.. Check the store to the top right !
Thanks for the support guys
