Mervin At Lib Tech’s Holy Bowly – APPROVED

May 20, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiI have been waiting for more footage to come out of this set up. If you have not heard about Holy Bowly, that’s cool. You will like this. In short, Lib Tech went to Tenjin, Japan and dominated with style, progression and fun.

They brought another aspect to snowboarding and action sports that not many have seen before. It is almost like a crazy souped up stunt ditch, but way better. The only real way to know what is going on is to watch, and that is why this edit of Holy bowly is Approved. You gotta see it.

Summer Shred – APPROVED

May 13, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiSummer backyard shredding is always something I look up to. It is what I do, what I love and a great way to express your creativity. Check out what these cats did in the tiny space they were provided. These two show that you can pretty much ride anywhere if you really want to. I also have to give it up to their parents who let them fill their yard with dreams. Approved.

Snowboard Skim Test

April 26, 2013 By

“If you build it they will come.” Isn’t that the quote out of Field of Dreams? I believe it is, and I also believe that there is a lot of truth in that statement. As an example, we already proved out the start of my backyard snowboard and ski park.

The Unedited Test

This was hardly a test, but at the end of the day a test is a test. This actually reminds me of skim boarding in a way. I bet with the right board, maybe a skim board, you could start doing tricks with just 48 square feet of mSnow. Here is the 9 second unedited video.

From the video, I would say the park is off to a good start. I would also suggest to anyone who comes over to ditch your work clothes before you come. Sorry Andrew, but thanks for sacrificing your nice tan work pants. Speaking of work, Check out the view from where I worked all day.

Beauty, Workstation, BloggingFrom here on out plan on seeing more and more updates from “The Backyard”. Until the next update, start thinking of different ways you can improve your backyard.

What improvements would you like to make?

Ski Snowboard Sex & Drugs-FD Ware

April 17, 2013 By

I don’t know if I agree with this snowboard/ski flick, but at the same time I can’t say I disagree. It is a tough decision and one that really has me thinking. It has me thinking what was FD Outerware really trying to do with an edit like this?

Ski, Snowboard, Sex, DrugFD Outerware

Just as a prereq, this is not something you want to watch at work or with your mom. Honestly, I don’t even know if I should be writing about it. Either way here is the 14 minute video.

So there you have it. Pretty intense right? With guys like Tanner Hall and Marc Frank Montoya you know there was some good riding going down, but man. What a video. Is this how we are going to sell our products? I don’t know.

Let me know what you think. I would to hear your thoughts, or maybe your moms thoughts. We know what you dad is going to say.

Paper Shredder – APPROVED

March 25, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiThis has to be one of the most creative snowboard videos made. Paper Shredder is a stop animation snowboard film and their descriptions says it the best so here it is…

Created By: Paul & Stephen Gemignani
Music By: Grey Storia

One snowboard shredders adventure in an unusual setting.

The Filming Process:
We started with actual sequence photos of Paul riding (taken by his brother Stephen). Then we printed each frame of the sequences on paper and cut out the rider from each one, which we used to re-create the sequences with different backdrops, creating the stop animation effect used in the video – a very SLOW process. It was challenging at times, but it came together in the end. We hope you like the film.

ENJOY!

X Games Real Snow 2013 – Approved

March 11, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiBode Merrill drops bombs in this one minute and sixteen seconds of video.  From massive parking structures to down rails that turn into c-rails, it is no doubt that Bode is confident on a board. My favorite trick happens just seconds into this video, but I will let you watch it to see.  Once you watch how this kid rides, you will know why this video is Approved.

Scooter Freestyle – APPROVED

February 4, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiThis clip was sent over to me from my good friend Marcus.  I know it is not snowboarding or skiing, and I know a lot of people think scooters are pretty lame; but the video you are about to watch blew my mind.  The guys in this video take scooter park riding to another level.  You have to respect the mad scooter skills in this video.  Other than the double back flip, I really can’t explain any other trick.  If I even attempted one of the tricks in this video, I think I would end up in the hospital with a scooter lodged in my forehead.  For that reason I am approving this scooter craziness.

Lick The Cat 2 – APPROVED

January 28, 2013 By

Snowboard and skiThis right here folks is just a good all around park riding.  I did not see any triples, quadruples, or whatever will come next.  What I did see is a bunch of riders slaying the park and having fun.  It is easy to see when a group of people spend a good percentage of their time in the terrain park because they make it all look so easy.  Being from the Midwest, I can’t say that any of this is easy because most of the obstacles they hit are twice the size of any obstacle you will find here.  For the fun of it, this video gets Approved.  Enjoy!

Think Thank Gets – APPROVED

December 31, 2012 By

The title of this video was so long I couldn’t really put it into the title, but who cares when you have fun like this on a snowboard.  This is Think Thank’s 4 minute video Primary Parts Part Two: Heart.  On average these guys find more snow than anyone in the Midwest, but at the same time they still find creative ways to snowboard when there isn’t an abundance of it.  They do what I believe every snowboarder in the Midwest needs to do even if there is only an inch of snow on the ground.  Have fun and get creative.  Watch this video and you will know why it is Approved, no doubt.

UMEŅ Warm up – APPROVED

November 26, 2012 By

Snowboard and skiYou know the clips that never make the cut?  The clips where a few guys decide to go to a trash mound and get some snowboard warm up sets in?  These are sometimes the best clips out there.  If  you ask me, anytime someone goes to a dump and gets it done is something that I am going to recognize.  Living in the Midwest, sometimes this is all we have, so I can relate with this video 100%.  Not only do they throw down, they make riding on trash look like so much fun.  I can’t wait to get some snow so I can do the exact same thing.  APPROVED.
