Yuki Kadono Wins Air and Style LA with first Switch Backside Triple Cork 1620 on the new Helix.

Over 30,000 people turned out for the first edition of Air and Style LA at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California on Saturday. The festival was the largest snowboarding event ever to be held in Southern California and proved to be quite the spectacle. A 160 foot high stadium jump jutted from the parking lot, and was surround by two music stages, along with throngs of food carts, vendors, and entertainment tents. Sixteen of the world’s best snowboarders battled it out in three rounds on the massive  jump in front of an eclectic, sprawling crowd.

Welcome to the Family – Ojo

ojo-smile-blog

Today we are proud to welcome Canadian native, Dillon Ojo, to the RIDE Global AM Team. Ojo has proven himself as worthy for the RIDE team through his insatiable appetite for chocolate milk, sub par instagram selfies and a knack for acquitting himself from any wrongdoing with Canadian law enforcement better known as the Mounties. Ojo learned the basics through countless nights riding Ski St. Bruno and went on to take his signature style to the streets of Quebec and eventually the world. With video parts such as his latest in Snowboarder Magazine’s Foreword, it’s evident he’s not pussy footing around. Dillon is here to put a hurting on rail riding all as long as there’s some chocolate milk to fuel the fire. Photos by Crispin Cannon

Welcome to the Family, Ojo.

The Crew Hits The 2014 Dirksen Derby

Danimals laying into a turn feeling the difference between being clipped or unclipped on the Alter Ego

 

Excerpt from Snowboarder Mag
This past weekend beginning on December 12th, far from the triple corks and linked combos that are de riggeur for the opening of the contest season at the Dew Tour in Colorado that was going down simultaneously, a few hundred people migrated to the town of Bend, Oregon for three days of making turns with no intention of ever leaving the ground, save for errant sidehits and berms that populated the edges of Mt. Bachelor’s trails that led toward the race course. The Eighth Annual Dirksen Derby had arrived. – Read the full report on the Dirksen Derby from Mary Walsh at Snowboarder Mag

 

Danimals was a smooth criminal as he navigated the more technical red course at the derby.

Our Boy Jake Welch Tops TWS Exposure Meter!

Jake Welch Tops September Snow Exposure-Meter

After finishing the ‘13/14 season just out of the Exposure-Meter top ten, Jake Welch came screaming out of the gates with nearly 9k of coverage in September’s issues. Welch nearly doubled runner up Gigi Rüf’s September tally — his follow up to his win last season. The first round of mags saw some strong placements from new EM contenders including Jeremy Jones, who shot up 28 from last year’s finish, Torstein Horgmo, who launched 120 places, and Austen Sweetin, who gapped nine to close out September’s top five. Here’s to an amazing season.
