The dudes at signal have made some pretty amazing things that slide sideways on the snow. The Crew created a 100% rideable snowboard that has a 100% working turntable and mixer. We are not left speechless often as we are so “jaded”, but this series is always one that we watch in awe. In this episode of every third thursday they they put the” in awe, in AWEsome.”Go on record and off the charts to produce one of the most insane “snowboards” of all time. With the help of artist, visionary and self proclaimed “Wienaissance man” Mark Paul Deren AKA Madsteez and the ultimate Hip Hop LEGEND, repeat, THE LEGEND, MIX MASTER MIKE the DJ of the Beastie Boys.
This is one board that you will want to scratch the hell out of and wawa to fakie on. I’m also curious to know if there are any DJ terms that translate into snowboard terms OR could be made into tricks? If so, please let us know in the comments section and we will maybe have one of our athletes perform that trick for you!
Wow, just wow. There isn’t really much I can say about the epiciness of this entire Nine Knights highlights video beyond giving props to Jesper Tjäder for his insane double backflip (you know which one). Read More
Alex Taran is no stranger to skiing in exotic and extreme places. While the rest of us enjoy summer bike rides and swimming holes, her summer months are spent down south chasing winter in Argentina and Chile. Alex shreds The Andes as a Ski Guide for CASA Tours and teaches avalanche courses for the South American Beacon Project. Her North American Winter finds Alex on the prowl for pow all over the west; Ski Patrolling in Snowbird, crushing Squaw, exploring Jackson, getting weird in Colorado, and everywhere inbetween. She is very proud of the fact that her home is wherever her truck is parked, a very typical sentiment from the Tolkienian heart in all true ski bums. However, this ski yogi has philanthropy, entrepreneurism, and extreme ambition that matches her skiing skills. Taran is headed to the Aleutian Islands, in the middle of the Bering Sea to ski the Vsevidof Volcano. Yes, a volcano. The symmetrical cone summit rises in stark contrast to its surroundings. It is steep, filled with collapsed craters, and is the highest point on Umnak Island. Though it’s last eruption was caused by an earthquake on March 9, 1957, the only fire water Alex will be around is the whiskey she shares with fishermen in Nikolski, AK. Keep it locked with The House for updates on Alex Taran’s incredible adventure and look for this featured story in Powder Magazine coming later this year. Read More
Skateboarding with dogs might be one of the funnest things on earth. Sure skating behind one dog is a blast, but four dogs, well that’s just some next level stuff. The pavement is getting drier by the minute and we keep getting in new cruiser decks and longboards. Make your pups proud and get a new deck » HERE.
There a few definite things about the Seb Toots Street Edit; the song is great, the tricks are tech, and Seb captured more shots in 2 weeks than most video pros get in a full season. Be ready for the street kids to start hating on a predominantly dedicated contest slopestyle rider. Ride Snowboards should be pretty psyched on this.
A lot of riders think that you need a really soft board to hit street, as for Seb Toots that’s not the case at all. The Ride Buck Up is a well rounded freestyle deck that can handle big park laps and cement ledges. Check out the Ride Buck Up »HERE
