Getting to Know Your Flow Fusion PowerStrap

The Fusion PowerStrap foot-strap is 3D-shaped so it can fuse the ankle & toe zones over the mid-foot and is padded for a super comfortable form fit. In this quick video we show you how to properly set up your Fusion foot-straps with your Flow Bindings. Make sure you set your bindings up before you go riding, put your boots on, strap in and jump around on the carpet to make sure it feels good!

Flow Micron Freddy Silber Earning His Turns


Last week, one of our Microns was earning his turns under the summer sun. On June 28th, Flow Micron Team Athlete Freddy Silber and his father Jay Sibler went on a quest for snow by taking a 16 mile round trip bike and hike voyage to ride Byers Peak in Colorado. To get to the snow they had to climb above the treeline to roughly 12,000 feet.

“My favorite memory was seeing all the amazing scenic views from hiking up and down the trail,” said Freddy Sibler.

Freddy and Jay Silber left their house at 5:00AM and hit the trail at 6:00 AM near his home resort in Winter Park, Colorado and into the Byers Peak Wilderness Area in Winter Park, Colorado. Once they were on the snow, Freddy strapped onto his snowboard, a 140 Shifty. His Fuse bindings set at 15° & 15° and he certainly made sure the boas were tight enough on his Rivals. While most of us in the Northern Hemisphere were dreaming of snow, the Silbers hiking and riding it.

“We hiked it most of the morning until the snow heated up and got too sticky,” explained Jay Silber. “There was a ton of snow and there is still a ton of snow on the peaks here in Colorado. A lot of snowboard opportunities to be had this summer if you put in some effort to get there.”

This week, Flow Snowboarding had a chance to dive into the head of Freddy Silber and ask him a few questions about his summer, last winter and what he is looking forward to this coming winter.

What kind of music do you listen to when you ride?
I listen to some electronic music. I mainly listen to hard rock and metal. 

Where was your favorite place to travel to, not related to snowboarding?
My favorite place to travel to is Kansas City, Missouri. I love to hang out with my family.

What was your favorite memory from last winter?
My favorite memory from last winter was a Steamboat USASA competition for slopestyle. It was such a great time with my snowboard team and good times and food. I took 2nd at that comp so it was really rewarding. Very exciting!

Where are you looking forward to riding next year?
I’m looking forward to riding at Breckenridge and Keystone with the Flow Team and for contests. They have amazing rails and jumps.

Any interest in the FIFA World Cup soccer matches this summer?
I don’t like soccer at all! It’s not for me. Not trying to be rude, but I don’t care about it! I’m more into baseball.

Anything else you’d like to say to the Flow Snowboarding supporters?
I would like to say thanks to everyone because they are such an amazing part in this brand. I also have a snowboard crew, which is myself and six of my best friends called Snow Provides. We are a film crew and media page. We post up on Instagram and YouTube all winter.

Are any of you going the extra miles to hike to where the snow still sits in the Northern Hemisphere? Please share with us where you are continuing your snowboarding this summer by connecting with us at Flow Snowboarding via Social Media.

Europe’s Indoor Snowboard Parks


Flow Snowboarding Team Athlete Drayden Gardner took a flight across the pond to hit the UK’s SnowDome in Tamworth, Stafford. If you are planning a backpacking trip through Europe this summer, you might want to pack your goggles and spring gloves… there’s riding to be done. Europe’s indoor snowboard parks keep riders shredding 365 days a year. The SnowDome for of over 19 years has been referred to many in the UK as the spiritual home of the UK freestyle scene. Their freestyle parks are definitely on point, with a few beginning features for those looking to progress to the next level.

For more information on SnowDome, please visit:
www.snowdome.co.uk

The largest indoor park in the UK is located in Milton Keynes at Snozone. Snozone has park nights every Thursday and Friday night and hosts freestyle events such as Parkstrife which has extra enhanced features for riders as they pump in great music. Snozone’s Who’s Afraid of the Park event focuses on beginners to freestyle, allowing them to learn from qualified instructors and sponsored riders.

Flow Snowboarding supporter Johnny de Jong lives in the Netherlands, and is an avid snowboarder at Holland’s SkiDome. Our next video blog in a couple days will feature a video edit from SkiDome.

“I live seven miles from an indoor track,” explained de Jong. “So it is easy for me to go snowboarding. SkiDome is the very first indoor court of Netherlands. There are a few indoor tracks… a fun park with various rails, ‘jumps’ and of course the big air bag to catch you. The SkiDome is my home ground, but it’s not the biggest one. Check out SnowWorld and look for Landgraaf. That is a nice one.”

Summer Snowboarding: Cure for the Summertime Blues (Europe)


Snow Sliding Across the Pond in Europe

In our last Flow Snowboarding FLOG, we took a look at the Summer Snowboarding options for North America. If you’re a boarder and a baller… why not head across the pond to Europe for some summer sliding? This FLOG we’ll take a look at a few snowboarding options in France, Sweden and Switzerland. Les 2 Alpes, Riksgränsen and Eskimos Sports Freestyle Camp each offer a unique opportunity to keep your snow season continuing through the summer months.

Les 2 Alpes, Wild Summer Camps Isère, France

The French ski resort Les 2 Alpes is situated 44 miles south of Grenoble in Isère. It is home to the largest skiable glacier in Europe and is Europe’s second oldest resort behind Chamonix. Les 2 Alpes has one of the best reputations for being one of the greatest places for summer riding. Ride at elevation 9,186 ft up to 11,811 ft on the Girose and Mont de Lans glaciers high above the resort. Each summer they host their Wild Summer Camps, with excellent training facilities and many outstanding, specially adapted programs for experts and beginners alike.

For more information on Les 2 Alpes, please visit:

Riksgränsen, Sweden

Riksgränsen ski resort rests 186 miles to the north of the Arctic Circle, making it Sweden’s northernmost ski resort. Its latitude gives the resort 24 hours of daylight in the summer, which means that it’s possible to ride under the midnight sun. Thanks to this year’s snowfall, Riksgränsen will be ending this year’s skiing season with skiing under the midnight sun, a midsummer buffet in Restaurant Lapplandia, and an après-ski and night club in bar Grönan and traditional Swedish dancing around the the maypole in your boots. If you can, get to Sweden ASAP. These events kick off June 19-22nd.

Eskimos Sports, Freestyle Camps Zermatt, Switzerland

Want to ride Switzerland in July or August? If you have it in your budget, why not hop a jet plane to Zermatt, Switzerland? Eskimos Sports holds their Freestyle Camps over the summer, sliding on park and pipe on the Allalin glacier ski area. Their snow park in Saas-Fee will make you forget that it’s actually summer. All of Eskimos Sports’ coaches are professional riders and solid snowboarding and freestyle teachers. They promise a measurable improvement in ability within a week’s time. Grabbing air with style and endless rails to jib. The riders at Eskimos Sports look to inspire one another in order to push the limit and dial in new tricks.

While most Americans backpack through Europe and see the tourist sights in the Summer… why not be in the minority walking the planet and pack up your board, boots and bindings and head to the slopes less ridden by us Yankees? If you can’t afford to, don’t worry… neither can I. But a man can dream. One day we will get to Europe to ride.

As we all pine for winter on the top of the planet, the Southern Hemisphere is primed for a great season. We will take a look at a few Southern Hemisphere hot spots in our next Flog. Please share with us where you plan on continuing your snowboarding this summer by connecting with us at Flow Snowboarding via Social Media.

Flow Snowboarding Rider Profile: Micron Sophia Capua

flow snowboarding sophia capua rider profile snow nationals micron usasa snowboard

p: Dustin Schaefer

Get to know Small Fry Shredder Sophia Capua

With most sports, the common theme that you hear is “ Start ‘em young”. Sophia Capua embodies the very essence of this phrase. At just 6 years old, Sophia is snowboarding well beyond her years. She is one of the hardest working Microns with Flow. She puts out monthly edits that are creative and fun, snowboards any chance that she gets, and is already getting photos in certain publications (most recent in Summit Daily). But if you ask Sophia, snowboarding is anything but work. She is doing it for the simple fact that snowboarding is fun.

Snowboarding Is…

For a young aspiring snowboarder, snowboarding is everything. For Sophia Capua, snowboarding is FUN. The main reason that most of us start to do anything, is for the simple fact that it is fun. Sophia hasn’t lost sight of that belief, and from the looks of it, she probably never will. This pint sized shredder loves snowboarding and is constantly pushing her parents for more time on the mountain.

Local Spots & Favorite things about Snowboarding

Sophia hails from Colorado and frequently inhabits the local spots of Copper Mountain & Loveland Ski Resort. The young Micron snowboards at any chance that she gets. For this reason, “Dad’s Park” (a.k.a the Capua’s backyard) was created. Sophia is not scared one bit, she loves hitting rails and doing jumps that seem to be nearly 3X her size. Anytime that Sophia can have a snowboard under her feet is a good time.

10 Words with Sophia Capua

Family Shred –  “They’re Awesome!”
Snowboarding – “Surfing on the Snow”
Copper Mountain – “Halfpipe”
Flow Snowboarding - “My Snowboarding Family”
Slopestyle- “It has big jumps and Sarka (Pancochova) is awesome!”
Yoda Costume – “LightSaber”
Dancing –  “Is cooler when you are on a snowboard”
USASA Nationals- “New Friends”
Halfpipe – “It has huge walls”
Family – “I love them all”
Sophia Capua is an awesome Micron. She is favorite both on Social Media and here at Flow. With an awesome attitude and amazing talent, the sky’s the limit for Sophia.
