Caleb Bonneville Heads To Bachelor 2015 Edit

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.

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.”

FlowSnowboarding-FlowRituals-MikeBasich-Summit

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.
