etnies 20-Year Anniversary NYC April 6, 2006
Tyler Lepore survived the etnies 20 year Anniversary despite meeting a few strange NYC vets. He went crazy buying up tons of art books and a few special items for a special person. He’s back in Vancouver shredding local resorts as well as hitting up Whistler when it’s good. Ty’s been busy this season with snowboarding, home improving and maintaining his passion for doodling and working on his bike. You may catch him tossing back a few wildcats in Kevin Sansalone’s new film scheduled to be released this fall.
Tyler and friend caught off guard.
Benji Ritchie, A.K.A. Loose Lips, is back in Whistler after the NYC extravaganza. He’s still going out in the backcountry where it just keeps snowing and snowing. Benji’s been filming with the Whiteout crew all season so be sure to check out his part later this fall.

Way to go guys!
Stian Solberg has been on a mission this season. He flew from Norway straight to Canada earlier this season to dive right into being the road warrior all season long. He’s been filming with Defective films all season and shooting with various photographers. You might catch Stian along the West Coast during the Young & Restless tour with some of the other shredders like Eric Jackson and Freddy Austbo. Be sure to check www.thirtytwo.com for details.
Here’s a sneak peak at what Stian’s been doing all season.
Party Pelosi and Sexi Lexi. Before a huge bottle of Vodka and tons of Redbull.
Jussi Tarvainen took a little bit of a break from snow shredding this month due to a slight knee injury. Nothing serious just landed flat one too many times but he’s been a trooper all season long. He’s stoked on his work visa so he’s been livin’ it up as a foreigner living the Cali dream. Jussi’s been filming with the Mack Dawg crew all winter so be sure to check him out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed...

Last but not least, Wille Yli-Luoma’s nowhere to be found. Just kidding! Wille’s been on a crazy mission this season. He’s been filming with the Volcom crew and from what I gather, he’s been killing it. I can’t wait to see the footage ‘cuz some of the lines I’ve seen him do, I can’t even comprehend. Just check out this line he did last month. Be sure to check him in the new Volcom flick.
Lexi and Leanne trying to put the moves on. C’mon ladies! He’s six years old!
‘Til next time...
If you look real carefully, you can see Wille’s line about 3/4’s of the way to the right of this photo. I’m sure this looks a lot different from the top.
