We’re a bit late on this news but the videos is killer and the riding next level so it had to get posted. In March, Monster Energy held the Rail Trick Storm event at the Font Romeu Pyrénées 2000 snowpark. A little rocket rail to double kink staircase and a fence ollie to wall ride [...]

#Hashtag-Gang @ #Stubai Zoo

Fed-up with endless social media ‘tagging’ and ‘trending’? If the answers yes, you’ll be stoked on Ambush rider Andi Nitsche’s latest tongue-in-cheek dig at the current hash-tagging craze. The only problem we can find is that it’s crammed full of hashtags which kind of #defeatsthepurpose.

Bendik Oye in TGP Vol3

Life ain’t so bad for Norwegian Ambush team rider Bendik Oye who can count Norse Freeski legends Andreas Hatveit and Oystein Braaten as shred buddies. Over the last couple of seasons the trio have been putting out little edits capturing the progression of their tricks and style… both of which seem to be coming along [...]

Talma Slushfest

The winter might be over in Finland but where there’s slush and rails you’ll find 22 Productions and Amplid Ambush team riders Anton Tevajärvi and Niklas Turku slugging-it-out and getting some shots.
Last week Cartel riders Luka Melloni and Pako Benguerel were in Sierra Nevada at the southern most tip of Spain for the Spanish Championships.

Park City Out with a Bang

Well Park City resort’s winter season is now over and the perfectly sculpted park is now only a few mounds of baked slush. For Steve and the rest of the Saga crew the season went out in style with one of Evan Heath’s best edits of the season. Here’s the spoiler… Steve crushes it, but [...]

Lukas Schoepke Season Edit

Swiss Ambush skier Lukas Schoepke’s 12/13 season was his best to date. Lukas has had some great contest results and the style he’s refined over the last season is so money even Zurich’s bankers couldn’t afford it. Check-out his season edit for smoother action than a Rolex watch.

McRae Wins Total Fight

Another day, another contest win for Cartel rider McRae Williams. This time it was victory at the Total Fight contest in Grandvalira, Andorra, sandwitched between the French and Spanish Pyrenees.

Foggy Felhorn Fun

Doesn’t matter if it’s bluebird conditions or foggy whiteout you’ll find Juergen Nigg and the Freeski-Crew up on the hill stacking footage for their annual movie release. The B-roll edits they put together capture the fun and progression of every day riding with the Freeski-Crew and make you just want to head up on the [...]

Amplid Infiltrates Alta

Alta Resort, Utah, is one of three remaining bastions where skiers can go about their business without the dregs of society (also known as snowboarders) showing up and ruining the peace and serenity… Luddites. Many attempts have been made in the past to “poach” these backwards thinking resorts but still the management remains defiant. Amplid [...]

French Freedom Slides

French Ambush skier Charly Royer was recently in the US shredding Colorado’s famous Breckenridge and Keystone terrain parks. Looks like Charly bagged some banger shots on his Antidogmas.

AAA Challenge #4 Winners

Another month another challenge. For March’s challenge we called-in on Park City deviant Steve Stepp for inspiration.

Two riders really caught the essence of the challenge: German Academy snowboarder Daniel Diedrich’s [...]

10 Tricks Luka Has Dialled

Here’s Luka dishing-out a masterclass on choosing a park feature and destroying it. To inflict similar damage to your local park you’ll need a good helping of speed, more style than Karl Lagerfeld’s wardrobe and sparks… everything is better with sparks. Shot and edited by Pepe Gay.
Beating French big mountain freestyler Sam Favret in the Quarters meant McRae progressed to the Semi Finals of the VARS Tournament. Facing him in the Semis was Henrik Harlaut who was keen to throw all manner of butters into the mix in an effort to beat McRae for a place in the Finals. Be sure [...]
