Redbull Supernatural – Highlights

At last we have footage of the much anticipated Redbull Supernatural competition.  The format created and executed by world beater Travis Rice aimed to find the best all round snowboarder on the planet.  Suprise suprise Rice himself walked off with the crown. 

The new fortmat looked awesome, maybe we will see a Redbull event rolled out for both snowboarders and skiers in years to come.  Lets hope so, it looked so sick.

Let these highlights fill your friday brain.

 

While We Can – Full Release

The eagerly awaited full release of ‘While We Can’ from film maker Andreas Olofsson at Imaginary Trace is finally here.  The film deserves alot of recognition, its not often a film of this quality comes along for free viewing.  However, the aim of Imaginary Trace, a not for profit organisation, is to encourage people who enjoy the film to head over to imaginarytrace.com/shop and purchase a copy.   Their aim is to reinvest in projects to help people who would not ordinarily be able to get out and ride to do so, both skiing and boarding.

Have a butchers at the full release here, your eyes may implode.

Permin Switches to Atomic

Richard Permin is widely considered one of the most versatile and freshest freeskiers on the planet at the moment.  His switch is a great capture for the Atomic team. 

Permin has it all, throwing down huge airs in the park or epic big mountain lines, the guy is turning in to a freeski legend and he just keeps getting better.  His huge role in this years MSP film ‘Attack of La Nina’ was epic.

Chris McKearin, International Freeski Sports Marketing Manager for ATOMIC had this to say about the sining of Permin: “We are very happy that Richie decided to join our team. His unmatched energy and passion for skiing flawlessly aligns the ATOMIC family and we cannot wait to see where his skiing will go.” About the partnership, Richard had this to say: “It is a dream come true to belong to this team. Some of the best riders in the world belong to the ATOMIC family and I am really happy to team up with them and continue to push the sport.”

If you haven’t checked out Permins section from this years MSP offering ‘Attack of La Nina’ then here is a re edit.

Let you peep holes enjoy.
