Trollhaugen – Human on Board Episode 1.1 – Motherland

Welcome to ‘Human On Board’ – Ep. 1.1

Each Christmas, some of Midwest snowboarding’s OGs gather at Trollhaugen to throw methods, share laughs, and show the next generation of shred how the stoke was stoked long before terrain parks transformed the game. In this episode of ‘Human on Board’ we catch up with the old dudes who took Troll for the day, and follow it with high-speed steel work from some of Troll’s regulars in the Valhalla park.

Song: ‘Motherland’ by Apollo Cobra – Twin Cities Electro Rock Mavens – Support Local
Filming: David Murphy, Grady Tank, Benny Milam, Jeffy Gabrick

Matt Chase | Wild Card

Matt Chase Full Part

House team rider Matt Chase has a pretty insane season last year. After battling through heavy slams and injuries, Matt ended up with some top-notch street hammers and some crazy footage from his summer at Windells. Unfortunately, Matt will not be able to ride this season due to concussions, so we wanted to drop his ender part from Wild Card to keep up the hype.

Produced by Billy Bjork and Jared Floersch in collaboration with ClosedCircuitMedia and NewFrontierFilms

Song: Cuts – You Know What I Mean

Think Thank – The Drought

Think Thank Almanac

Screen shot 2015-01-08 at 11.19.08 AMThe Think Thank video crew has been chasing winter since the temperatures dropped low enough to snow.  Packed into a white cargo vans the crew drove from Utah to the East Coast and then, as of recently, landed in Minnesota.  With more than enough heavy hitters to stack clips,  Ryan Paul lead the charge through the street and in the parks – here’s what when down.

Traveling Circus in MN

House Riders Andy Parry and Garrett Russell, along with LINE Traveling Circus members Will Wesson and Shane McFalls, fled the western drought and headed to snowy Minnesnowta a few weeks ago to film for LINE Traveling Circus. Episode 7.3 “That’s Different” includes the remarkably weird and funky skiing of LTC and features MN signatures like hotdish, the Mall of America, and rails, rails, rails. I had the opportunity to chauffeur the crew around to Wild Mountain, Trollhaugen, and any/everywhere in the Twin Cities area. They could be the strangest group of skiers I have ever been around and I loved every moment…except for all the discussions about cats. There were a lot.
