TURNING JAPANESE: Boarderline team edit

As promised, here's a bit more footage from the Japan crew. Boarderline riders Barry P and Natalie shred Niseko in a wee team edit:

Natalie gets the Torstein treatment with a top-to-bottom followcam run through the park, there's a cameo from super-steezy Craig Rumbles, then BP closes the show with a lazy frontflip and back 3 off the booter. Hud 'at!

Ben tears up Tignes X-Games park

BK has sent us this video of his day sessioning the X-Games park in Tignes:

Banger of a kicker run: switch back 5 stale, back 7 melon, massive back 1 tail! This was apparently his last day in Tignes before shooting off, and looks like he went out on a high.

Fraz shreds the Cas

Fraz fires down the Coire Cas on a mad sunny Sunday up Cairngorm, capping off a rad weekend's shred. As this was the last run of the day most folk had heavy legs and/or heatstroke, but Fraz was still charging aboot, shralping the slush and gapping the moguls.

Always a stoker to ride with Fraz; he's forgotten more about shredding than most of us will ever know. Easily the cheeriest guy on the hill as well!

A'deen in AK

Last month Robin Parkinson and Chris Leigh, AKA The Powder Chickens, embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the holy land of freeriding: Alaska....

The Powder Chickens Alaska 2011 trip report


It’s been tough to know where to start this. The cost, the 50 hour/4 flight trip it takes to get to Valdez, the constant weather model inspection required to figure out if you might fly on a day and if not what other plans can be put in place rapidly, or simply talking about the desire to do the pilgrimage to Alaska. I decided it was best to just give a bit of a feel for our AK experience rather than thousands of words and let the video do some of the talking too.

Euan's Road Trip - the rundown

Euan Linn took a break from killing it at Garthdee to take in an epic road trip to some of North America's finest resorts. Here's his report:

So, recently, my girlfriend and I embarked on a 2-and-a-half week road trip round the US and Canada.  We drove 2000 miles, through 5 States, 1 Province and rode 10 different resorts. And it never stopped snowing.

First stop was the ever friendly US Customs at SLCity International Airport who detained us for several hours while they searched our bags (which miraculously made it through Charles De Gaulle unharmed) and interrogated us. Luckily the KGB training kicked in and we were admitted to the Land of the Free.

Two big bad Barry frontflips at Glenshee

More BP action: after the Stepchild Rail Jam was done and dusted, the big man went about flipping off anything he could find, including the sketchy diagonal-over-downrail line! Madness.

It was a grand day, with heaps of A'deen folk in attendance. Sam's got some photos on the Whitelines site, check them out here.
