Lukas Huffman and the Aeris Movie: Interview

Photos: Lanie McAuley By the time Lukas Huffman enrolled in Columbia University’s film program, he had been around his share of cameras. As part of the cast of professional snowboarders who brought refined and large-scale freestyle charging to the mid-2000s, Huffman’s riding career progressed along with the move in snowboard film production towards sophistication. While he transitioned from pro boarding towards his education, he was watching friends like Mack Dawg’s Mike McEntire develop technically as cinematographers. He was also turning the drive that made him an iconic boarder towards crafting stories through the art of moviemaking. The combination of inspiration...

Austin Johnson Park Footy 2015/2016: Video

Yesterday we snuck out for some laps, but committed a cardinal sin.  We checked the work accounts from the hill.  Yet thanks to Austin Johnson, our lapse into desk jock mentalities was not completely anti-rad.  He hit us with his park edit from 2015/16, and managed to fire us up from halfway across the country.  Check this one out for a clinic in technicality from the Mt. St. Louis ripper: Wondering how you can submit footy and be featured on the site?  Well homies, ask around.  Part of snowboarding is learning how to hussle, and y’ain’t qualified for even hussle 101...

The Middle/Path Project Stops by the Office

On Tuesday night, the Middle Path crew stopped by for a visit. Actually, maybe it was Wednesday morning. We don’t know– we were asleep. The homies had some business near our neighbourhood, and needed a crash spot for the night. The American crew has quite a lot going on in Canada, funnily through connections of Chilean origin, and with membership from Utah, AK, Montana, and Washington, that’s not the only wicked bit of boarders coming together marked by Middle/Path. We had a coffee with the boys after they’d caught some morning Z’s and we’d caught some morning hussles, and got the inside...

A Really Good Day at Mount Seymour

As Jordan and I laced up our boots, the vibe was already in place– April 2nd was going to be a really good day at Mount Seymour. It was hot, even in the lingering bits of 9:25 AM shade, and the skies were blue but for the texture of altocirrus patches. There was no question of whether the snow would be soft– the heat would soon prime even north aspects of Seymour’s 3D terrain for blank-canvas freestyle dissection. And we were with our people; all around us shredders were rolling up and out of pick-ups, kicking off skate shoes,...

Red Bull Slope Soakers at Grouse Mountain- Recap

Daniel Gardiner could nail this splash-zone blunt slide holding his girlfriend’s iPhone. Trint Thomas with that podium-nabbin’ lock-in. Photos: Edwin Poulston Grouse Mountain has a long history of making spring the season for rad in Vancouver– any Van City shredder who remembers 25 inch stances could tell you about the mega shoots of the Alterna movies or the jump deck quarters in the old side-cut park. Grouse was always the spot for the season’s last expression of industriously enhanced snowboarding, one last bold and brazened hurrah for the winter before the slip into sandals and the bike down to Wreck....
