Jesper Tjäder posted this video on his FaceBook page late last week of his semi-final run. He said “Didn’t make it to finals, but I’m super stoked that I landed a sw double front flip in a comp run!” It seems that the judges have a lot of explaining to do about why he didn’t make it. It was a very solid and amazing run. Usually I don’t recommend going through comments on videos or threads but, I’ll make an exemption this time. The comments on the video thread are gold. The run was at LAAX in Switzerland. You just gotta see it to believe it.
My semi-final run from today!Didn't make it to finals, but I'm super stoked that I landed a sw double front flip in a comp run!Shot on GoPro Hero4 Black.
This weeks #FPF we’re going to be looking at the Babolat Aeropro Lite in the newest colorway* we’ve received.
This is a beautiful racquet that will definitely grab some attention. With flashes of yellow contrasting with the black and white frame popping cohesively with the pink accents. One look and you won’t be able to take your eyes off it. It’s ridiculously light in the hand and is a good fit for juniors transitioning into adult frames or intermediate adults who are looking for lightweight maneuverability and spin. One of my favorite features of this racquet,just above the handle you can see a little bit of the GT Technology wrapped in a high gloss coat.
Here’s the veggies;
Composition : GT Technology
Weight : 260 g / 9.2 oz
Head Size : 645 cm squared / 100 square inches
Balance Point : 340 mm
Length : 685 mm / 27 inches
Flexibility 73 ra
*Currently this colorway will have to be ordered by phone. Call us at 425-454-6465 ask for the Tennis Department
Bjorn Hoffman is a lucky fellow. First he’s out on a blue bird day on glaciers of Valais in the Swiss Alps. The day seemed nothing out of the norm, that is until he takes a quick break with some fellow skiers from a Heliski trip. This incident happened last year but the first hand footage wasn’t posted till just recently. This is a POV of how terrifyingly quick the day can go from epic to tragic. Don’t worry, clearly Bjorn survived with just minor injuries. Shows that you can never know what mother nature has in store for you!
Ronix is making some moves, they’ve just added Freddy Von Osten. The German will be joining the Kinetic crew this season. The move was announced back on the 20th of March. Freddy who is the best rider in Germany and won the National title last year will be looking to do it again. Here’s a short welcome edit that Unleashed Magazine has put together with Ronix once Freddy had access to lake Ronix earlier last week. Shred Hard Freddy!
Stars from the BNP Paribas Open were shown drawings by second graders from nearby Gerald Ford Elementary. Each one of a tennis player in the tourney. There’s a future Picasso at that school, I know it! Watch Federer, Woz and others take a stab at who’s who in this Game of Art. This is pure gold.
Juho Kilkki, Ilkka Hannula and Verneri Hannula are at it again. This time feeling a little more Wes Anderson ish to me. Maybe I just watch too many films. Never the less, these boys are still entertaining to watch. They’ve gained a few new editing and Frisbee tricks to show off in this quick edit. It’s like watching kids who’ve never had a chance to play in warm weather in their natural environment. They have so much creativity and originality its awesome to see where this group of young men are headed.
This is the second time I’ve written about this group. Here’s the first time. Skifi post.
