The Canadian province of Nova Scotia is a breading ground for Olympic snowboarders. "Fishing for Snow" is a film about how a ski hill full of passionate people helped to pave the way for generations of Olympic snowboarders. Since the 1998 Nagano Winter Games, Nova Scotia has contributed to at least one Olympic snowboarder to the Canadian Team.
Join 2014 Olympian Alex Duckworth as she returns home to share her story in hopes of preserving this strange history that is Nova Scotian snowboarding.
We already brought you Ethan Deiss's killer part from *Burton Presents 2016, but we have to say: This 7-minute grip of uncut leftovers from *The Snowboarder Movie: SFD is maybe even better. Give it a watch and then start begging the Gods for some snow.
Well it's official: The first installment of Burton Presents 2016 is an absolute banger. Featuring Ethan Deiss, Zak Hale, and some of the most insane rail destruction, wallrides, and re-directs ever put to tape (or, rather, SV card), this one seems destined for classic status, so give it a watch and prepare to have your mind blown.
Hall & Oates. Jordan and Pippen. Tuner and Hooch. In the history of epic combinations, snowboarding and beer is definitely up there with the best of them, and the Strange Brew crew gets that, pairing the two in this epic Finnish jib fest. Crack a cold one and give it a watch.
Last year, Jamie Nicholls made waves in the snowboard community after his wild indoor/outdoor line at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead went viral. Now Nicholls is back with #HemelRun2, which takes that similar combination of urban jibs and indoor riding to its logical—and gnarly—conclusion. Check it out and get hyped for the upcoming season.
Looking for something to satisfy your jib hunger until the snow season kicks off in November? Great, grab a seat and get ready to devour Jye Kearney's new part, which finds the Burton ripper tackling a variety of crazy terrain throughout Montreal, Boston, and New York City. Filmed over the course of 2014/2015, this one is just now thawing out, so make sure to lend it three minutes of your time.
Boston has had plenty of snow this winter (PLENTY). So the Signal Snowboards crew decided to get into a little throwback vibes and hit up Boston.
On this episode of Every Third Thursday, Dave Lee and the crew team up with longtime skateboard designer Paul Schmitt to create the ultimate backyard, back hill, neighborhood golf course fun board—we’re calling it Mr. Fun. Dave finds legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi’s pro model shape in Professor Schmitt’s workshop, which serves as the foundation for this 7-ply deck. Hosoi himself stops by the factory to add some crucial design input to the Hammerhead-esque shape (kinda like the surfboard he made of it). Mr. Fun gets a custom Hosoi grip tape job and then it’s off to the streets of Boston for the historic amounts of snow to see if Mr. Fun delivers on the promise of fun.
See this simple board take on snowy streets, parks and everyday urban features with no lift ticket (and no bindings) required. Does this look like fun to you? Let us know in the comments below!
