Usually spring is the time when most riders start to hang up their gear, but for riders like Mark McMorris, Mikkel Bang, Seppe Smits, Roope Tonteri, Werni Stock, Marko Grilc, and Peetu Piiroinen, it’s the time to start laying down the hammers. Those guys sure tore the spring kickers at Heavenly and Sun Valley a new one. Check out all the carnage in part 1 of the Spring Park Sessions presented by Burton.

Capita Super Corp. or Capita Super Team? At this point I’d say both. Capita’s latest edition to the team is the Japanese rider Kazu Kokubo. Kokubo is widely known for having the latest trick in the pipe while still keeping style and execution top priority.

Hyped! is the feeling we all get when we strap into our snowboards.
The 2012/13 season is right around the corner. Here are three more, highly anticipated boards from our favorite brands including Lib Tech, Never Summer, and GNU. All of these boards can currently be found on BuySnow.com and are ready to ship today. Be sure to hit us up with any questions concerning binding compatibility, features, or shipping.
Art of Flight tested, King of the Hill winning, valley leaping, Alaska ripping, Jackson Hole freeride & jib sticks. 100% shredtassium for sliding in and out of tricky situations with ease in all types of riding conditions: hardpack, park, pipe, pow, rails, and even ice. For psychoLOGICAL shredding advantages, Travis continues to have two shapes: a pow-specific pointy 161.5 & 164.5 and a park/jib-specific blunt 150, 153 & 157. And of course, factory de-tuned to Travis’ specs!
The 2012/13 Proto will continue to dominate! We’ve taken the powerful flex of the time tested SL, and blended it with the responsive dampening of the Evo to create the ultimate all mountain true twin. This board has the versatility of Never Summer’s patented Rocker & Camber Technology, our new Superlight wood core, graphite impregnated Sintered 5501 base and added a whole new element into the proven Never Summer Carbonium Series of boards.
The Park Pickle takes the next step in snowboard specific geometries. Banana between your feet for easy riding, catch-free park freestyle performance, and unreal float in powder. Magne-Traction for unreal edge-hold everywhere. Asymmetric sidecuts and construction to balance the different turning mechanics required for heel side turns and toe side turns. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric. Park Pickles with a deeper heel side sidecut and unique asym core, are designed around progressive riding and modern freestyle duck stances in all terrain.
The 2012/13 season is right around the corner. These are our top three, highly anticipated boards from our favorite manufacturers including Burton, Ride, and K2. Next week we’re featuring three more boards from three different brands. All of these boards can currently be found on BuySnow.com and are ready to ship today.
Juiced up and ready for lift-off, the Custom Flying V™ continues as the benchmark all other boards are compared to. The one-board answer for all terrain, its proven design improves power, pop, and handling with evolutions like Squeezebox and Lightning Bolts to energize the ride. Available in two versions, riders like Mikkel Bang can get the best of both worlds with the hybrid Flying V, or be like Nicolas Müller and stick with the precise control of camber.
All mountain freestyle chargers will benefit from the new versatile Hybrid LowRizeTM shape designed with the playful LowRizeTM rocker in the tip and tail, and the responsive level micro-camber zone under foot. By moving the carbon to the outside edge of the board they are maximizing the response, grip and stability, making this twin ideal for going big while maintaining an all around playful feel.
The 2012/2013 K2 Happy Hour is the result of K2 leaving their team alone to do what they want with each and every element of this all-new deck. A bit scary really. We are lucky no one was hurt. But, the end result is the most bizarro, genius fun board the K2 team has ever ridden.
