Caleb Bonneville Heads To Bachelor 2015 Edit

Caleb Bonneville, Flow, Flow Snowboarding, Flow Micron, Mt. Bachelor

For Flow Snowboarding Micron Caleb Bonneville, the 2014-15 winter could have used more cowbell. Record lows as far as snow pack in California had Caleb seeking better snow in Oregon. That hunger took him up to Mount Bachelor in search of the soft white stuff. Unfortunately, mother nature sent him rain on his trip instead of snow. Not ideal conditions, shutting down most of the jumps. Caleb made the best of his trip hitting the jibline. Here is the edit from his trip up to the Pacific North West.

Storing Your Snowboarding Gear In the Off-Season

IMG_5787

For most of us the snow has melted at your local mountains and you are well into your offseason routine or Flow Rituals. If you are not planning on hitting any of the summer camps or chasing the snow up in the Pacific Northwest, Southern Hemisphere or Europe than you need to make sure you store your gear properly so it will be nice and ready come the next winter season. Flow Snowboarding wanted to give you a few tips to make sure your gear is nice and ready for when the lifts start to spin again.

5. Store your gear in a snowboard bag

Storing your snowboard, boots and bindings in a bag will certainly prolong the life of your gear and keep it well organized for when the resorts open. Flow does offer a few luggage and bag options to keep all your gear consolidated in a larger size travel bag.

4. Make sure your gear is dry before you bag it up.

It seems like a no-brainer but we have seen the effects of what happens when you throw your board into a boardbag without drying it first. The snow melts, the rails or metal on your bindings sit in a puddle you didn’t even know was there. You become well aware when you see the rusty edges of your board or other water damage to your bindings or boots. Try to make sure all your gear is dry before bagging it up.

3. Try not to store it in a too hot of a location.

We realize that space is an issue and you may not be able to control where you keep your snowboarding gear, but try to avoid storage spots with increasingly high temperatures. This can cause your board to dry out over the hot summer, especially the base.

2. Wax your board before you store it.

Everyone knows to wax their board before going up the hill, but waxing it before placing it in storage is a great way to make sure you base and board don’t dry up when you store it in the offseason. One thing to keep in mind, is waxing it with an early season wax. I personally wax mine with a mix of all temperature and graphite wax. You never know how the snow is going to ride for your first trip up.

1. Don’t store your gear, keep riding…

This is typically our favorite solution to storing snowboard gear, only store it until your next trip. Winter is over for most ski resorts in the Northern Hemisphere, but there are still plenty of spots on the globe. You could chase the snow and winter down to the Southern Hemisphere, go ride the summer camps in the Pacific Northwest or Woodward camps, or even head to the glaciers or indoor sites in Europe. Don’t let mother nature tell you winter is over. If you are willing to travel, it really has no end.

The Frozen Chase: Self Portraits by Mike Basich

Asymbol-MikeBasich-Slider2_1024x1024

Flow Snowboarding Global Professional Mike Basich recently pieced together The Frozen Chase, his self portrait book The Frozen Chase bounces between classic action shots, fun loving lifestyle pics and unique points of view. What really makes this book special is the front seat view of a life lived on the snow and Basich’s lo-fi, organic take on photography.

“I started taking portraits for a few reasons,” explains Basich.

“I wanted my two imaginations to work together. I wanted to capture how I truly wanted to be shot, and to be the rider. I wanted to share what snowboarding was to me. It wasn’t accepted as a cool or legit thing back then.”

Flow Snowboarding wants to know what your Flow Rituals are.

During the winter all of us run to the hills to go snowboarding. But just because winter is winding down in the Northern Hemisphere doesn’t mean your active lifestyle goes into hibernation. Active people crave active lifestyles. For some of us we chase the snow. We hit up the summer camps in the Pacific Northwest. Some of us find work or study in the southern hemisphere or Europe’s glacial resorts.

Lydia Silber Takes 1st in USASA Halfpipe, Rail Jam & Slopestyle

Flow Snowboarding team athlete Lydia Silber has been slaying it in Colorado taking three National titles in 2 days, winning gold in Halfpipe, Rail Jam & Slopestyle at the USASA National Championships at Copper Mountain.

“It was such an amazing week,” said Lydia Silber. “When you want to reach a goal, a dream… anything… you must go work your butt off because it most surely will not get handed to you.”

“Every day before practice I thought of how cool it would be to get on top of that podium three times.” Lydia continued. “That encouraged me to go out that day and learn new tricks, have fun, and get to work. Also, that fact of knowing that 30 or so girls are coming from all around the U.S. to compete, really gets me motivated to work hard. I couldn’t have done it without the help from each wonderful individual at the Flow Snowboarding family. Everyone working at Flow made a huge impact on how I looked at my snowboarding!”

“It’s amazing,” said her father Jay Silber. “She won the halfpipe and rail jam on Monday. This was a 12 hour day of riding that didn’t end until 9 pm. Then won Slopestyle on Tuesday (after only getting 5 hours sleep) in the Breakers Girl Division at Nationals. She said at the beginning of the season that she was going to try to win all 3 this year. She worked her butt off 5 days a week this season and made it happen. We are very proud of her and the effort she put in to reach her goals.”

Lydia’s brother Freddy Silber also had a strong showing at the USASA event at Copper Mountain.

“Freddy had a great season too,” Jay Silber added. “He had 4 top 3 finishes out of his 5 competitions and then he placed 16th out of 70+ riders in slopestyle this week at Nationals.”

Have you had a chance to read our interview with Jay Silber, Lydia and Freddy’s father yet? It is a great story about how snowboarding has now spanned three generations in the Silber family. We have all been become part of the snowboarding tribe for various reasons. We here at Flow Snowboarding want to hear your story? Engage with us on Social Media.
