Events and Happenings, Procrastinators Corner, Snowboard / 16.09.2015

Pretty bold statement right? Actually it's the title of ThirtyTwo's first ever team movie. Releasing on October 1st, 2015. ThrirtyTwo is inviting all snowboarders all around the world to its HQ for the world premiere party. This is not a joke but a very clever marketing campaign.

Back to reality. Riaz Haniff had posted this...

Who else other than the Nitro Snowboard Team could pull of such an amazing feat. Marc Swoboda, Dominik Wagner, Ana Rumiha, Žiga Rakovec, Benny Urban and Basti Rittig would attempt to break the world record(79 meters or 259.19 feet) for a rail slide. The team took two tries to make this happen. The first attempt proving unsuccessful needed some redemption this past June. The team took turns to hit the mark but it proved to be more difficult than it looks. It would...

It's said, "You can't get to where you're going, if you don't know where you come from." That little saying is so true yet so simple. Transworld Snowboarding has put together a really short documentary that takes us back into the neon hyper color infused world of the 90's. It was a pioneering time for snowboarding. Watching this video really puts some gratitude beneath your feet as to how far we've advanced the sport and the direction it can go with the right people...
