Here’s the crew checking out a zone for some Pow-pleasure...E-Jack, John J, Spike, and Zim.
“Spring showers...May brings flowers” is slightly an understatement this season. Even the saying “Miracle March” is a month off...at least for the West Coast it is. Check out what some of the ThirtyTwo/etnies Snow team riders have been up too:
Here’s a shot of E-Jack pointing out his lines.
Fredrik Austbo is chillin’ on the coach recovering from his knee surgery. Unfortunately, he blew out his knee before the Olympics and didn’t realize it until after all the excitement. He’s doing well and keeping a positive attitude about everything. Luckily, he’s so young he’ll be bouncing back in no time. Good Luck Freddy, we’ll see you soon. Oh yeah and happy belated birthday. Freddy just turned 18 on April 20th. 4/20? What?
John J spotting his landing. You can see him slay this jump in the new Standard films out this fall.
John and Eric Jackson have been quite the busy bro’s this season. They’ve been spending the whole season destroying where ever they go. They’ve been up and down the West Coast and ventured out to Montana a handful of times. They’re in Whistler right now slaying it with Standard films. They’ve encountered a few roadblocks during their mission but nothings stopping them from having fun and killing it in the backcountry. If you haven’t checked out the new Snowboard magazine lately, you should cause The Jackson brothers have a full interview in there explaining their passion for shredding. It’s pretty cool. Anyways, they’ll continue to slaughter ‘til this summer. If you want to try and meet these guys, you may get lucky at the premiere of Standard films sometime this fall. Be sure to check for dates and details.
That’s right kids, its not all that fun in the backcountry when your sled burns down. E-jack watching a brand new Polaris 900 sled burn straight to the dirt.
Markku Koski has been in the US for a bit now getting his shred on. He’s been hanging out in Tahoe with the Defective crew filming and shooting photos. He’ll be in the states til the end of April then back to Finland for a bit and then off to Lapland or Hemsedal, Norway. Check out some of the images from the Sierra at Tahoe shoot. Be on the look out for Markku in the Defective film scheduled to be released sometime fall of 2007.
Kitto’s! (translation..."Thanks!" in Finnish)
Here’s Chris Edmunds (Defective filmer) getting roped up for the sick angle. Good thing Chris had a light lunch this day.
Markku Koski killing the pipe while Chris follows him on the cable cam. Defective films scheduled to be released sometime in the fall of 2007. Markku always looks like he’s having a good time while shredding. He makes it look so easy.
Yup... That was a good day. Thanks Markku for brightening up our day...
