by The Editors on January 26, 2015

Amy Purdy has taken a lot of steps since losing her legs. Dancing With The Stars, an Olympic Medal, and now a commercial for Toyota with the words of Muhammad Ali. What will she come up with next?


Brandon Reis’ Full Think Thank Almanac Part

by The Editors on January 26, 2015

Yes, Brandon Reis put down some interesting rail-a-rifficness in Think Thank’s Almanac for sure.

Like a horde of spot decimating locusts Brandon chomps his way through school yards, parks and side country hits on a biblical scale. Day or night, rain or shine Reis won’t stop (and if he does stop, a little peer pressure will get him going again). The world is upside down, conspiracy theories are true, the dark slide is possible, fish are leaping to land, all of this points to signs of the beast, Reis the Beast.


2015 X Games Slopestyle Results

by The Editors on January 26, 2015

It’s only the 2015 X Games, but Mark McMorris (and Sage Kotsenburg) finally got the scores they should have gotten in the 2014 Olympics. Yes, McMorris took the gold. Then again, we don’t know what we’re talking about because we didn’t watch the X Games. Oh, and Jamie Anderson didn’t win the women’s event. Silje Norendal edged her by a little over two points. For the full results. Follow the jump. [click to continue…]

The X Games Aspen 2015 will be known for two things:

1. Amazingly skilled athletes who defy the laws of physics while shredding snow, air, and everything in-between. And…

2. Their intensely loyal fans who tune in to cheer and support their favorite X Games athletes.

For the fans in Aspen, getting an up-close view of the athletes on a course or hanging out in town is typical. For fans around the world, getting closer can be a little tougher. And that’s where Skype is helping to bring everyone closer together.

By teaming with X Games star athletes Gus Kenworthy, Sage Kotsenburg, and Taylor Gold, X Games fans are getting the chance to ask them questions one-on-one, through the power of Skype.

All you need to do is add XGames2015 as a contact on Skype for a chance to join in. Follow the jump to for all the details, and personal video invitations from Sage, Taylor, and Gus. [click to continue…]

Forcite Brings The Smart To Snow Helmets

by The Editors on January 21, 2015

A crew of Australian helmet designers have created what they’re calling the first “smart helmet for snow sports.” It’s called the Forcite and it features an HD camera, speakers, impact sensors, and a micro computer inside the helmet which is all controlled by a smart phone app. These features allow sheds to capture the action, communicate with friends, and even send out a distress signal with GPS coordinates when there is an intent impact. It’s like turning in to Robo Cop on the hill. We’re not sure this will ever make it to market, but for all the details, please follow the jump. [click to continue…]


Ride On’s Augmented Reality Goggles

by The Editors on January 20, 2015

As we’ve discovered over the past decade, creating a video demo of a tech product is much easier that creating a tech product. Over the years we’ve seen some amazingly cool technology that hoped to be transformative. Then nothing went to market. We know nothing about Alon Getz or his company Ride On, but from the looks of this video he and his team are at least dreaming in the right direction. If you’re impressed with this edit, then by all means donate some funding to Ride On’s Indie Gogo project and help get this immersive heads up display goggle out on the market. Click the link.

by The Editors on January 14, 2015

Straight up: this specially built park at Sierra-At-Tahoe looks fun. Simple as that. And the team (Jordan Nield, Ben Wynn, Aspen Weaver, Zach Bragdon, Eric Royce and Jack Lyle) makes it looks even more fun. Maybe they’ll build it again some day so we can all ride it.


Thrasher’s Mike Gilbert On The Cons Project

by The Editors on January 9, 2015

Master skate filmmaker Jon Holland directed this video with Thrasher Magazine digital director Mike Gilbert on the The CONS Project and what Gilbert and the crew hope to communicate to aspiring skateboarding filmers. This is part one of a four edit series.

The four films being rolled out over the next few weeks will show tips on skate filming including editing techniques, follow filming, shot composition, and skating in front of the camera with experts Mike Gilbert, Ewan Bowman, Nick Genova, and Don “Nuge” Nguyen. The video includes footage from a CONS Project Filming Skate Videos workshop Gilbert led last fall.

We could all use a few tips from the pros, right? Truth is, we’d be most interested in hearing some tips from Mr. Holland himself. Maybe next time.
