Snowboarding in New York City

While not known for its altitude, Long Island can still get over thirty inches of snow throughout the Winter. For most people this is annoying…but not this guy.

Watch Casey Neistat snowboard through NYC the only way altitude allows, tied to the back of a Jeep! Happy Friday.

Norwegian Torstein Horgmo out of Olympics pending injury

Torstein Horgmo

Professional snowboarder and Olympic medal hopeful, Torstein Horgmo, is out of the Winter Olympics with a fractured collarbone. The injury was sustained after a hard crash Monday at the top of the Olympic slopestyle course.

“Injuries and falls are part of this sport, but the timing is really bad,” Horgmo said in a statement released by the Norwegian team.

It is reported that athletes had shown concern about certain steep kickers prior before official practice began on Monday. Now, organizers will be trimming the tops and bottoms of some jumps. Organizers maintain that Horgmo’s accident happened because he was attempting a really hard trick, not because of the course.

Scott Stevens Full Part from THE LAST ONES

The crew at VIDEOGRASS recently uploaded Scott Steven’s part from their recent flick, The Last Ones, in its entirety. It’s always amazing to see what Scott is doing on his snowboard. The man is known for thinking outside the box and executing some pretty creative stuff. This part is a perfect example.

“Scott Stevens just might be the most creative snowboarder to walk the earth. Last year, with the support from 32, Etnies, Capita, Coal, Crab Grab, and Smith we were able to help Scott film one of his best parts ever. He is a true genius, innovator, sleep eater, and all around amazing alien.” – VIDEOGRASS
