This is the one we've all been waiting for. The most enticing teaser for the most epic shred film to date has just hit the internet, and it's absolutely incredible.
Travis Rice, Brain Farm Cinema, and Red Bull Media House dropped the big kahuna on everyone last night by releasing the first teaser for their newest project, The Art of Flight.
The full length feature shred film is a follow up flick to Rice's last production,That's it, That's all. Thankfully that title did not hold true, as the Art of Flight proves there's much more shredding to be done, and Rice and his crew have been busy uncovering new terrain all over the world.
If this teaser doesn't give you goosebumps, then we don't know what will.
From the producers of That's It, That's All comes a new breed of snowboarding entertainment exceeding all expectations: The Art of FLIGHT follows Travis Rice, John Jackson, Mark Landvik, Scotty Lago, Jake Blauvelt, Nicolas Müller, Gigi Rüf, DCP and Pat Moore as they dream up new global adventures and progress the sport to unimaginable levels. Brain Farm has gathered an arsenal of the most advanced and progressive filmmaking technology to bring the masses a snowboarding adventure of epic proportions. Filmed on location in Jackson Hole, Alaska, Chile, Aspen, Patagonia, British Columbia and more, FLIGHT brings the viewer along for the perfect blend of adventure/travel drama and high-energy snowboarding action.
Get your eyes on over to SNOWBOARDER to watch the teaser. Do it now.
On Tuesday, Scotty Lago broke his jaw in the Wyoming backcountry while filming with Travis Rice and Mark Landvik for next year's feature film "The Art of Flight."
The three pros were hitting a massive backcountry kicker that took the crew over a week to build when Lago took the nasty fall. The Olympic Bronze medalist was attempting a switch double backside rodeo 1080 when he under-rotated 90 degrees. This unfortunate miscalculation coupled with the hard impact of the landing sent Lago's knee directly into his jaw.
The impact shattered his jaw bones, broke a few teeth, and chipped a bone in his cheek. A medic was on scene, but Lago reportedly had to drive his snowmobile over hilly terrain for around 20 miles until he reached a location where he could be picked up and transported to the hospital. He underwent emergency surgery and was released the next day.
The injury has left Lago in stable condition, however his jaw remains wired shut. At this point it's very unlikely that Lago will be able to compete in the Winter X Games at the end of this month.
We wish Scotty a fast recovery from this unfortunate accident.
Travis Rice bare-backing it....er, tie-dye-ponchoing-it.
It's here. Kind of. In an attempt to maintain our attention span, Quiksilver, VBS, and Todd Richards have broken up "Todcast the Movie" into three parts. This tactic will most likely work since watching something longer than seven minutes these days has become some what of an effort. Shit, part one is 13 minutes long...guess we'll have to manage.
According to Todd, they seriously tried to have as little snowboarding as possible in this film. As a result, I'm assuming we will get more sarcasm, harassing, smart ass-ness (yes, it's a word) and entertaining encounters. Quiksilver also lets us know that Todd is still an professional athlete. Just. so. you. know. Have fun watching what these people do when they are not sliding on snow. Featuring: Bryan Fox, Travis Rice, Sage Kotsenberg, Todd Richards, and few more snow studs.
VBS's fancy embed player didn't get along with our website so scoot on over HERE to watch Todcast the Movie Part One.
Part 2 and 3 will be released tomorrow (Dec 7th) and Wednesday (Dec 8th).
Opening weekend is a time of celebration. It's the chance for you and all your friends to meet at your favorite mountain, take a few groomer laps, talk about how pro you'll be by the end of the season, and party.
The Frends Crew headed to Mammoth Mountain over the weekend and did all that with a heavy emphasis on partying. Check out the latest Frendsvision clip of the crew perfecting their party skills.
Johnny Lazz looks like he's a force to be reckoned with this season on the party scene... Lets just wait how he fares with his snowboarding.
