Mike Basich Area 241 Vid

I’ve been going down the wormhole of daydreaming then cold showering myself back to reality when looking at bank statements. This vid on Mike Basich and Area 241 helped kill some time and build some stoke (as well as make me revisit life decisions, damn hindsight being 2020), figured worth sharing. Can only imagine waking up on a pow day, making some coffee and just sitting looking out that window at my own private shred zone.

Bonus Mike Basich classic photo

Chris Grenier: HOME FIELD

You know you’ve fantasized about something similar while sitting at your desk and gazing at the walls. My ‘given infinite money’ dream used to be a little crib outside of Whistler with a big fat heated wave pool with baseball stadium lights. Shred all day, warm waves all night. Had I not turned Google down in 2001 that could be a reality but now that I’ve given up on the big money dream things like this DIY cabin/park setup is a more achievable fantasy (actually working on putting together something similarish but way different)

As far as being as “out there” as they make it sound I gotta say that sure looks like a highway down a few hundred yards around 2:02 in the vid…

Travis Rice “The Fourth Phase” Trailer

Supposed to be 100 in Portland this week, good time for a snow trailer to mentally cool off. As usual with T. Rice/Red Bull flicks it’s shot on cameras that cost more than your car and have more K’s then a Donald Trump rally in northern Idaho.

Rodney Mullen “Liminal”

The video is a lot like what I’d imagine a wreck between a train carrying bags of dicks and one carrying bags of shit would be like – from it’s dizzying/constantly rotating camera, to the overdramatic editing and music – but the guy is a legend and a savant so it’s getting posted anyways.

…and sort of odd that the video debuts on Vogue’s youtube channel, no?

Line Of The Year?

Candide Thovex just upped the ante with this one.  That line would be hard enough to pull, but to pull it before transitioning back into board mode?  Mental.

Mt. Thielsen by Split Life Films

Somehow I missed Geoff’s midseason mini edit.  The Split Life Films crew hits Mt. Thielsen in southern OR.

 

 

A Little Stoke from Japan

Skidoos and Throwbacks and Japow oh my!

VIDEO: The Matt Cummins Documentary

FUCK. YEAH.

P.S. RIP Tacoma Northwest Snowboards

Timeline Films “La Liste” Trailer

Sure, it’s skiing not skiboarding, but gottdamn that climbing sequence on the opening face!  The ridge travese at 1:48 in is pretty solid too.  Also can I get a shout out to Youtube commenters?! “Fast as all hell…nice air in there too…but steep? Those lines didn’t appear to be overly steep.”  The internet:  where everyone has a 14″ cock, makes a million dollars per year and dates supermodels.
