That's it, that's all



Have you seen The Community Project? If not, it was a snowboard movie with a big budget and no sponsor related restriction about who could star in it. Instead, Travis Rice picked the riders, invited his friends and traveled the world trying to go big on his board. Well, he's at it again and if we are to judge by the That's It, That's All second teaser, it should be very interesting. You'll just have to wait until August to find out.

Picture of the day



My bike, patiently waiting for me after my workday, anxious to get on the snowy roads.

Second winter this season



After quite an impressive start of the winter, we should have known something was fishy, it was too good to be true. Then, as a reminder that global warming is indeed real, temperatures got very high, it rained and all the snow was left or turned into slush. A few days later, temparatures dipped back to normal January levels and the slush froze into hard ice. Dang! I knew it, we can't have a great winter anymore over here.

Today though, I woke up to a nice snow blanket, the bike ride to work was fun and easy but much harder on the way back. That means there was a lot more snow at the end of the day than when I left this morning. And it's still snowing tonight so there is hope. It will snow again later this week supposedly so saturday night, I'm going for an all nighter at Bromont with a few friends for a second start of the winter this season.

Jakob Wilhelmson wins in China



Lib-Tech ripper Jakob Wilhelmson put his nice smooth style to good use this week-end and won the Red Bull Nanshan Open. Some of you may have noticed he was riding a blue banana board, probably a 2008-2009 board... Interesting.

Haute couture bindings



The ultimate chic shoes for the ladies, made out of snowboard bindings by Balenciaga. I'm sure they were popular items at new years eve parties around the world.
