When a a skater falls and the first point of contact with the ground is the rider’s hip, it’s called a hipper. Nick Mullins got a hipper, which as many skaters know is very common. Something wasn’t common about Nick’s hipper, with a break in the skin he incurred an infection, a staph infection.
Nick’s staph infection quickly spread to his heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs; doctors gave him a 1% chance of survival. The infection advanced to Nick’s eyes; it destroyed his right retina, and doctors saved what was left of his left eye. However damage was done to the left eye and only a small peripheral triangle space can pick up slight color and light – leaving Nick legally blind.
This is Nick’s newest edit, published on April 21st, 2015.
If challenges ever arise in life, know that they can be overcome. Look to Nick Mullins for inspiration and pull yourself up by your bootstraps.
This edit marks the first of a series that we’ll be pressing out until the fall. It’s been a long winter and a warm day session at the Oakdale Skatepark was perfect for withdrawals. Squadding up with the crew never felt better.

It has always be hard justifying a snowboard trip to the East coast over one to the North West, Tahoe, of Rockies up until this year. With a majority of the nations snow landing in New England, could there be a gradual trend to road trip or even move out East? A park settled into south central Vermont would give anyone reason enough to visit, hell, even move Vermont for the season. That park is Mount Snow’s Carinthia Parks.

Todd Kirby left a little nugget in his Yobeat Hump Day interview that an Impaler powder edit was going to be dropping this fall. Christmas came early and Impaler just released it. These clips gather throughout the season in Montana may be the only domestic pow footage that is worth watching. What’s next on the crew’s agenda? Rumor has it that Japan maybe in the crosshairs. Whatever happens, we garrantee that it’s going to be nothing short of amazing. Stay tuned.

When winter hits most people put their down hill bikes away and pull out their fat bikes. Luda May had other ideas for his bike and grabbed Nico Faluet to shoot in Verbier, Switzerland. Although it looks cold, it also looks pretty cool. Jump to 0:50 to see the action.
