I think there are many people in the international snowboard community who have no clue where or what the Valais/Wallis is and what it’s famous for. Only If you are a bit seasoned with alps you may know that the Valais is a canton of the french speaking area of Switzerland and that it is know known for its endless mountain landscape and vast open freeride opportunities, but I think most people will know at the least when I drop the famous Matterhorn or Saas Fee, yes that’s also in Valais. With this said Julien Roserens may be the new an best one man public relations department of the Vallais Region, together with his crew and the super talented riders like Levi Luggen and many more show how they spend their time in the swiss backcountry the best way possible and intersperse it with some nice urban spots. Valais, I guess you have some new fans.
Mac and Charlie, like the new all internet millennium Johnny Cash and June Carter, perfect match!
If you missed it so far, King Lizzard’s „Quarters!“ is probably the chillest album of 2015 when it comes to start a friday/weekend/day off…
DBK made a short clip about Chris Haller’s photos exhibition in Zurich, he took photos from tracks of his board in a maiden halfpipe and colored them well. Even if it is a super simple approach, the pictures have a lot power! It’s a Co-production with Dominic Zimmerman, which you should know if you visiting this piece of a blog for longer and have some fervor for great snowboarding photography.
I really wasn’t in „It’s snowboard time!“ mood yet, temperatures have been way to high for this time of the year and it feels like a never ending stretch of late summer fallish 3 month span. I’m still checking the surf forecast daily and haven’t even thought about replacing it with the powder forecast button on in my browser bar. No way I have checked any new snowboard vids from the early season, but then this came literally out of a different direction and the name: „A bunch of friends snowboarding“ is just as simple as genius, because it has actually all I need, all you need, to get you eager for clocking in mountain hours! After watching it you will agree, you want to swipe away all #fall #nature #colors #leafs Instagrams and replace them with pictures of a massive snowfall on top of your go-to mountai. Yeah right, see?!
Thanks a lot Sebi Madlener & Theo Acworth
My favorite surf film festival! Always with a super nice selection, environment friendly and at the beautiful City of San Sebastian/Donostia. Go there if you are around!
Forbidden Trim was shot over the course of four years. Shot around the world, the crew traveled to locations in Europe, Central America, and Australia, on a shoe-string budget, in between jobs and paychecks. Machete bearing locals, barbed wire fences, and remote surf locations are only a few of the many obstacles faced in pulling this project off. Shooting film is neither cheap nor easy, and the margin for error is very small. There’s no instant replay, especially in a water housing – where the filmer must exit the water to change the roll. Each roll contains about two and half minutes of shooting.
Please help fund this movie by contributing trough Kickstarter.
