Noah Salasnek – Style Legacy

Noah Salasnek

With a hail storm of notifications across all social media platforms the snowboarding world learned yesterday of Noah Salasnek’s passing.  As a true style icon who blossomed from skateboarding in the late 80’s Noah defined and created the blunted influences that can still be seen in todays riding.

Noah pioneered a perspective that paid homage to skateboarding in snowboarding’s second generation.  With talent, determination, and a willingness to be his best Noah grew to the height of his career as both a freestyle and big mountain rider; a very difficult task even by today’s standards.

May the lips be fresh, landings soft, and pow light.

Rodney Mullen’s New Footage

 

Rodney Mullen is a living legend and has every right to be.  With 30 years of innovation one might expect Rodney to achieve a few “firsts”.  As the inventor of the ollie, kickflip, heelflip, treflip, and many other tricks Rodney will always be on a pedestal.

It’s been 12 years since Rodney Mullen released a significant amount of footage.  Yet, here today, it is.  Steven Sebring invited Rodney into the world of his high fashion studio to capture the true essence of a creative human.

Long live the King.

Garden Route Trail Park | Knysna, South Africa

Sam Reynolds, Matt MacDuff, Danny Pace, and Andreu Lacondeguy crank into darkness down the steepest and longest drop-in that you’ve ever seen.  With high speed berms, triple lines, and a massive step-up Pure Darkness 3 rips from beginning to end.

With massive risk comes massive reward.  The reward feels great, but falling into risk hurts.  Protect yourself from risk like the crew and get yourself a full face Bell Super 2R Mips Helmet.  It’s nice having teeth left after a face slam.

Space Skateboarding

Tony Hawk and Aaron “Jaws” Homoki were able to skate in zero gravity through the weightless experience provided by Zero G Corp.  Obviously this is something that is more fun to do than watch.

Stair Set BMX Backflip

Costa Rica has seen a lot of things, except for someone backflipping a set of stairs with a bike.  Actually, no one has ever seen someone do that.  Hats off to Kenneth Tencio for doing what’s never been done before on a BMX Bike.
