Want to see real patrollers doing a choreographed dance? We’ve got you covered…and yes, to the best of our knowledge, this is real. And so so rad. Steamboat patrollers, we salute you.
I have a dirty little secret. I’ve never gone to Whistler. Which means I’ve never ridden the Peak Chair when the lineup is 100 people deep and the heckling, cheering and pole clapping is deafening. But I want to. So bad. Seems like a even rowdier, louder version of KT. Which is funny since it’s mostly Canadians in the lineup which I thought would mean it would be the most polite, helpful lineup around, but instead it sounds like people just line up to watch ill-prepared huckers get out of control and chuck themselves to their certain doom. Which I like.
I hope at least one of you is reading this in your one-piece before you head out for some Gaper Day action today and I hope wherever you are it’s 7:00am and you’re nursing your 3rd beer already. Now click through, watch the video to get pumped up and go wreak some havoc on this holiest of days!
Nathan Kushlan Sends It! was just going to be one post about a cool guy that gets after it by going large. There wasn’t supposed to be a sequel. Then Jared Allen decided to show us some recent photos and a POV from a couple years ago and we decided that the hucking must go on.
Wired Magazine put together a pretty cool POV roundup pitting the GoPro, Contour and the VIO POV HD against each other. Oh and they also include the Looxcie (not really action sports ready) and the Liquid Image Summit Series HD (basically sub-standard goggles that include a sub-par POV unit built in) so we’ll just focus on the 3 cameras that matter.
If you have less than one minute or a really short attention span and love spines, check this out. Bryce Phillips, presumably in the PNW.
Todd Ligare and Griffin Post head to Idaho for some sled ski action.
This group of skiers gets after it in and around the Wasatch. Good mix of POV and Non-POV with good snow, good light and good skiing. Why wouldn‘t you watch?
If you don’t know who Ryan is, realize you’ve probably seen his GoPro footage in their commercial (good snow and a pillow line in perfect light). Here is another piece that makes you want to go ski. Now.
