“The day was September 28, 2014,” Tim Humphreys explained. “How did it snow in Tahoe? No one knows… well.. we were over 9,000 feet up on Mt. Rose. The only thing that’s for sure is we went boardin! I can feel it. It’s going to be a good season out here in Tahoe!”

The official countdown to winter has begun now that this last weekend’s Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails event up at Bear Mountain shook Southern California like an earthquake. For the first time ever, Bear Mountain park staff had two zones set up for riders to compete for the $10,000 prize. Johnny O’Connor ended up taking 1st place, Mariah Dugan took 1st for the ladies, with Zack Rawles taking best trick. Here are a few photo highlights from this past weekend’s event, taken by Flow Snowboarding’s Wallace Hargraves.

Mike Basich Featured in Heavy Mental by Absinthe Films

9/26/2014 1:39:46 PM

Check out our pal Mike Basich who is featured in the latest Absinthe film Heavy Mental.

“The lack of snow in much of the world, and a lack of snowpack stability in most other places, made this winter exceptionally challenging. Mentally and otherwise. A bit like a riddle, a maze, and a game of chicken rolled into one. With heavy consequences for not playing at the very top of your game. Lucky for you, (and for Absinthe) we were at the right place at the right time. But that would be a long and weird name for a movie, so we decided to call this one HEAVY MENTAL. You will be rocked.” -Absinthe Films

Heavy Mental is now available for download on iTunes. Have you seen the film yet? If so… what did you think of Mike Basich’s segment? We at Flow Snowboarding want to know. Connect with us at Flow Snowboarding via Social Media and use the hashtag #FlowSnowboarding.

Getting to Know Urska Pribosic

9/25/2014 7:07:39 PM

Slovenian snowboarder Urska Pribosic recently graced the the cover of the Blue Tomato snowboard catalog and was recently featured in Lipstick Productions short film No Place Like Home. Never one to miss a joke or prank, Pribosic’s Lipstick Productions rider profile lists “Honesty” as a virtue she has, followed comically by “Lying” as a bad habit.

We had a chance to track down Flow Global Ambassador Urska Pribosic to ask her a few questions about her growing up snowboarding, her summer & winter travels, as well as being featured in the new Lipstick Productions film “Something.” Her jovial nature shone through on a few of her answers. Have a read.

Where is home for you Urska, currently?

Earth… most of the time.

Did you ever ski before you started snowboarding?

Yes and I still sometimes do, just to be reminded how much better snowboarding is.

Do you listen to any music when you ride?

If I remember to take it with me…so no. And even if I do remember the battery is usually dead.

What is your current snowboarding setup? Board, boots, bindings? 

I ride flow Velvet 146 for park and street, for powder I use a Velvet 150. Boots wise I sue the Deelite coiler.  My bindings are the Minx GT.

Where was the first place you went snowboarding?

Pokljuka. I straight went for powder but didn’t go very far.

What would you consider your home mountain to be?

Vogel and Dachstein. Even though Dachstein is in Austria, I’ve been there so many times it feels like home.

Where was your favorite snowboarding trip last winter?

To Georgia (but not the US one…)

Where are you looking forward to riding next winter?

The United States…

Have you ever visited North America to snowboard at all? 

Yes, in Colorado. Copper Mountain and Breckenridge and in Canada. BC & Quebec.

What is your favorite place to travel to for snowboarding?

The one I have never been to.

What is your favorite place to travel to not for snowboarding?

Asia. I like their culture more than western culture.

How has your summer been? What have you been up to to stay in shape for the winter?

Great! I went cycling from Slovenia to Portugal. It took me one month. The spent the next month resting from the previous trip.

Did you snowboard much in the summer with all the glacier and summer snowboarding access you have in Europe? 

We have some glaciers around Austria and France that are also good in summer but I’m usually not very motivated to ride in summer. I do think about other stuff (in the summer).

Are you involved in any activities, events or films coming up that you would like the Flow Snowboarding supporters to look out for?

Yes! There is “Something,” the movie from Lipstick Productions. It’s coming out soon.

Any advice to they younger riders, looking to get sponsored or become a professional snowboarder?

Don’t forget that your doing it out of passion… Hopefully not to get sponsored.

Tell us about filming with Lipstick Productions. I saw your part in “Boobilicious…” Are there any other videos or edits that we should be looking out for?

Filming with Lipstick is the best part of the season. Yes, you should look out for our new movie Something.

Anything else you would like to say to the Flow Snowboarding customers and support?

Just go with Flow

Urska Pribosic has her Flying Squirrel costume as seen in her segment of the film “Boobilicious.” Mike Basich has his Yeti costume seen in the popular GoPro commercial. Even Johan Jenssen, our Photo of the Week winner from last week, has this chicken costume. Do any of you out there have a costume you like riding around in to break the monotony.
