The Best of the Snowboarding Blogs: May

Bet you were holding your breath for April’s Snowboarding Blogspurt, anticipating the excitement of flicking through the news and videos, but as there wasn’t one and you’ve been holding your breath for an entire month, means you’re probably dead… I was off gallivanting in waves instead of blogging, but I’m paying for it now with my ankle on ice after getting mashed by a wave earlier this week.

So you’re dead, I’m injured. Hairy ball sacks. Primarily got snow videos for you this month so get comfy.

Travis Rice: Snowboarding into the Future – Why We Watch


In the previous video TRice mentioned the first Red Bull Supernatural which took place this year. If you weren’t able to catch it on NBC then fear not, here’s a FULL almost 1.5 HOURS recap of how it went down.

Brothers on the Run

Pro-surfer Ian Walsh joins the epic crew of Travis Rice, John Jackson and Eric Jackson in Alaska. Blue bird skies and fresh pillows of powder produced some banger lines from each one of the crew, even John Jackson against the doctor’s orders.

Shredded Beats

SoGnar shredded beats in Japan is an idea born in 2006 which aims to link the art of snowboarding with music, through a uniquely branded event. The goal for Shredded Beats is to bring together Professional Snowboarder’s, Musician’s and Artists, to share in each other’s art forms.

Also this month, there was another Every Third Thursday snowboard design instalment from the Signal Snowboards crew. Check that full video here.
