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.
With one of the most powerful snow making systems in the world, the abnormally dry 2011/12 season did not phase Bear Mountain. Piecing together the “park puzzle” is what Bear and its staff is known for. This 25 minute video is proof. Press play to get your park fix.
“Will Lavigne is one of the most underrated riders in snowboarding today. Long time wingman of LNP, food connoisseur and full time funny man, Will cut his teeth in the Québec scene coming up with the early Sugarshack crew before busting out three parts for Rome Snowboards. What is often times lost in the flurry of 270s and assaults on big kinks and structures like the Red Ledge is that Will actually came up as a jumper and is no stranger to big park kickers or backcountry booters. This year, Will took a different approach to his season. He basically attached himself to new Quiksilver Team Manager Trent Ludwig and spent his season filming with whoever he wanted, amassing a grip of footy that Trent then put into the video part above. This part should once again remind people why Will is a major member of the Bandwagon and should also serve as a precursor as to what is on the horizon for him and the rest of the Déjà Vu crew as they begin filming their greatly-anticipated project for next season.” – Snowboard Mag
The official trailer for Think Thank’s 9th video “Mind The Video Man”.

Mind the video, man.

The word perfect should never just be thrown around. Sure tell your your mom her meat loaf is perfect, tell your girlfriend her jeans fit perfect, just don’t forget what perfect actually means.
My favorite definition of perfect states simply “being without defect or blemish”. Would a hand drag not be a “defect or blemish?” (0:26). Not to discredit Shaun, this is certainly the best run I’ve ever seen in a superpipe, but is it really perfect? A 99.95 would have certainly sufficed.
There’s always room for improvement, even if you are the best.
