Devil’s Head Jib Line – APPROVED

December 24, 2012 By

Snowboard and skiComing straight from the Midwest the video you are about to watch is from Devil’s Head Ski Resort.  The Midwest Progression Crew put in a early season jib line for their Rock and Ride Rail Jam and then took a few laps of their own to make sure everything was top notch.  With a warm start to the season there is no doubt that every resort would like to have a line like this for riders to come out and jam early in the season.  With hardly no snow, one would have to say that this jib line is worth an Approval.  Enjoy!

Snabes Wakeboards his Secret Spot

Every wakeboard video I watch, picture I see, or highlight I like, it always seems to be done on the glassiest water you can find.  Well, I don’t know if the water can get any better in the video you are about to see.  Snabes and his MWP crew found a secret spot that most of us can only dream about.  Better than the water, watch as Snabes slayes in and out of trees, tails presses like no one else, and has more fun behind a boat than I have ever seen.  Put everything together in this vid and you know why it is APPROVED.  Enjoy!

The Slopes are Open

February 10, 2012 By

Alpine Valley Ski ResortPeople in South East Michigan have been lucky.  They have hardly had to shovel their driveway all winter.  We know this because winter has not shown its face.  We also know that a lot of the lucky ones are using the crummy winter as an excuse not to dust off their boards and get to the slopes.

We get confused why people use excuses.  Just tell us you don’t love to snowboard or ski because…

They are Open

If we hear “Yeah, I have not be out boarding because of the weather”  one more time, we might puke on each other.  It’s like bad winter syndrome or something and the excuse doesn’t make sense.  In the Midwest, resorts blow crazy amounts of snow while you are resting your little head at night.  Take a look at what you have missed out on.

Honestly, we can’t even tell you how many slushy, wet, 40 degree weather days we have had and that the excuse makers have missed out on.  It’s unreal.  When the sun is popping and the slush is surfable, you better ride it.  With a park set up like the one at Alpine Valley, you can pretty much learn and dial in any trick you want.

Setting up and Surfing the Slush

Below is an edit of the crew from Alpine and Board Sport Terrain Design designing the park and then slaying it.  Watch this video and get excited.

What is the real reason you have not been to the slopes yet?  It is time to stop making excuses.
