Phatman Edit & Getting Old

Here it is. We finally got our shit together and made an edit. Enjoy!

And for most of us, getting old sucks. You lose hair, put on some weight (maybe not if you would get off of your couch and stop watching the battle at the berrics all damn day) and have to pay more bills. But the the fun part about skating is you can always push and throw down tricks that you know by heart. Just be careful not to slam because you might actually break something. I don’t know what I’m talking about, just watch this. Ishod’s SOTY trip. It’s nawwsty.

BATB 7, Justin Fronius & The Snowboarder Movie

First thing’s first. If you haven’t heard through the grapevine or don’t check the Berrics during winter because you believe skateboarding doesn’t exist during the winter, you gotta get your priorities in line. Battle at the Berrics 7 is coming up and guess what…you can enter. Pros vs. Joes. Go ahead get going. Those nollie tre flips aren’t gonna land themselves. But it is true that the past few Battle at the Berrics have been repeats of household names so this whole Pros vs. Joes thing will be a nice change of pace. And go watch Chaz Ortiz’s Battle Commander. Pow. Mind blown right?

In other news, Justin Fronius snagged Snowboarder’s Rookie of the Year and a took giant shit on everybody else. Okay that may have been a little drastic but the kid’s got hammers. Just watch his edit below. Getting praises from Devun Walsh on backcountry hits? Heavy stuff considering he’s big on urban riding. But that’s what you have to do these days. Hittin’ rails all day is fun & sweet but if you can’t step your game up in the big bad backcountry, well you might as well hang ’em up. Remember when your parents told you that you have to be well-rounded? Same rule applies here. Cheers, Justin.

 

ALSO, a heavy trailer is on Snowboarder Mag’s website right now for their up and coming movie ‘Foreword’. And if you watch it closely, you’ll see Niagara Falls (at the shot about 16 seconds in)…shout out to Jaeger & Garrett for stopping by the shop while they were in town. Always good to see support for local shops. If you’re not getting hot and bothered watching this trailer then break out the K-Y. You got young bucks all with an assortment of styles coming together for a video that looks like it will melt faces. Kick back & enjoy.

 

That’s all we got for right now, stay tuned for updates on events that are coming up. Oh yeah, here’s a little edit from our friends over at schuss while we were at Mt. Bachelor.

Port Colborne Edit!

So we decided to wander over to Port Colborne and see what they had to offer at their local park. Of course the camera was brought. Thanks Canada! You guys rule at poutine and skateparks. and hockey. and beer.

Hopefully we’ll be back over to skate the St. Catharines park soon. and snag some poutine.

This weather right now is a bummer but you can always go to x-wheels to get your fix. We’re starting to get some more snow stuff in so that’s pretty rad. Oh and we have those super ultra limited CAPiTA skate decks in. They’re all 8.25 so come on in and grab one. We just got some Coal Headwear products in. Looking like we’re gonna have a pretty fun season ahead of us. All last year’s snow stuff is still 30-50% off but you already know that by now. Also we love when people fall. Gotta love Thrasher’s Hall of Meat. But this could’ve easily been avoided. Just pop an ollie dude. C’mon man.

Even though falling is funny, it sucks when it happens to you but just get up and walk it off. Don’t be a wuss like every other kid that watches MTV and is afraid to take a tumble. Kids these days…anyways enjoy the rest of this god awful weather weekend and cozy up with your favorite film. I’m going with Fully Flared or Sorry. It’s not winter just yet.

Snowboard Films Preview. Our Opinion

It’s about that time of year again when all the teasers and previews you watched over at YoBeat and Snowboarder with your pants down over summer have come to full circle. Opening up 2014’s, is it considered next year’s films? Doesn’t matter, but kicking down the door is Lick The Cat’s film, ‘Project LTC’ which is now available to watch for free over at snowboardmag.com. The LTC crew consists of anybody who’s down to ride for ’em but some names that are familiar are Sage Kotsenburg, Sam Taxwood, Ben Bilodeau, Spencer Schubert and Max & Gus Warbington (DeadLung is in there too). From the looks of the video, they’re always down to party. Morning, Day or Night. I’d hide your girlfriend, sister, mom and grandma from these dudes cause nobody’s safe.lick_the_cat_Mammoth_snowboarding_videos

I could sit here and tell you all the 270’s on or pretzel outs and how many rotations that were nailed but if you really want to know just go watch the ‘effin movie. It’s a got bangin’ soundtrack too. When the last time you heard Sean Kingston in a video part? It’ll probably re-ignite that guy’s career. Overall ‘Project LTC’ is a FUN movie to watch. It gets you hyped to go shred and do stupid shit with your buds. Enough with the serious Gatorade-esque editing, its making everybody uncomfortable. Kudos to Lick the Cat for making another easy going movie to watch.

OTHER MOVIES TO GET FULLY TORQUED FOR:

Nike’s “Never Not” 

It’s Nike so it will probably be good. Two Parts to it. Starring Gigi Rüf, Justin Bennee, Johnnie Paxson, Halldor Helgason, Nicolas Müller, Jed Anderson and others. It’ll be a clean and sharp video. Drops mid September.

Transworld’s “Nation”

Some big names in this video with expected bigger parts. From Austin Sweetin to DCP. Quite the variety of riders which all have different styles. This formula usually equals a pretty rad movie.

Videograss’ “The Last Ones”

Creative snowboarding at its finest. Gnarly crew. Gnarly tricks. Balls to the wall attitude. Already premiered with damn good reviews. The ender is from a fella from the great state of Minnesota. Personally pretty torqued on this film (cause we’re so hipster).

Burton’s 4-part series “[SNOWBOARDING]”

Street. Backcountry. Resort. and Women’s riding. Not much else you really can ask for. It’s a four part series so calm yourself and be patient. The teaser is well done so the expectations are high from the boys & girls from Burton.

Jake Blauvelt’s “Naturally”

Backcountry ain’t no walk in the park. Blauvelt’s “Naturally” took two years to film and get ready to go. That’s determination and having riders like Kazu, Eric Jackson and Terje Haakonsen with parts. Hot damn. Drops Friday, September 11th.

Absinthe’s “Dopamine”

Absinthe does a killer job on videos. After last year’s “Resonance”, everyone is expecting a film to match and exceed. Excited to see parts from Brandon Cocard, Blair Habernicht, Cale Zime, Bode Merrill and Victor De Le Rue.  Just a few heavy hitters to be featured in this upcoming film.

Think Thank “Is Brain Dead and Having a Heart Attack”

Think Thank comes into the season swinging with “Is Brain Dead and Having a Heart Attack.” Brandon Hammid, Jaeger Bailey, Ted Borland, Brandon Reis, Sammy Luebke, Nick Visconti, Curtis Woodman, Sean Genovese…I’m sorry are those enough names to get you stoked for this movie? That’s not even the full list. We got a winner.

That’s just a shortlist of whats coming out for the 2014 season. Transworld has already done the work of getting the teasers/previews for you on their site. Click the link to waste about a half hour watching the teasers. Make sure you turn off the lights and lock the door too. Some of the videos are already out so don’t be a sleazeball and steal them off the internet. If you already have well then…you have a Taco-ing awaiting you this season.
