Mike Basich’s Self Portrait Book Kickstarter Campaign

Help our brother Mike Basich’s has currently started a Kickstarter campaign to release 130+ hardcover self portrait book covering his 15 years as a professional photographer and snowboarder. We at Flow Snowboarding want to help get Basich’s DIY project off the ground and flying, check out the video above and hear it from the legend himself.

Basich is currently offering various pledge points, each with their own unique item or items when this project takes flight. For $5 you would receive a postcard of Basich’s epic helicopter drop, along with a personal thank you message, for $15 you would receive a signed 241 clothing poster and $49 you would receive the book signed. For those willing to take their donations to the next level, Basich is offering 40 X 60 canvas prints of his helicopter drop or the Yeti outfit selfie for pledges of $500 or more.

Helping Basich get this project off the ground and having one of these books in your collection is a win win. If you can afford it, the canvas prints aren’t too shabby either. Have any of you already pledged on Basich’s Kickstarter? Let us know. Connect with us at Flow Snowboarding via Social Media and use the hashtag #FlowSnowboarding.

Mike Basich Featured in Heavy Mental by Absinthe Films

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.

Through Shin Biyajima’s Eyes

During the summer months, Flow Snowboarding Team Athlete Shin Biyajima does a lot to keep fit by cross training for the winter season. We had a moment to catch up with Biyajima in Japan to see how his winter went and how his summer is coming along. Pretty much catching a glimpse of the world through Biyajima’s eyes.

What would you consider you home ski resort to be?

The Hakuba area here in Nagano, Japan. But I like to chase the snow.

What kind of music do you ride to on your ipod or phone?

I listen to my friend’s band, rap and DJ mixes from Japan. I am so wide open with my music selection. Bassnectar to Tommy Guerrero. Acoustic, country dubstep, D’n’B, house, hip hop, Japanese, reggae and even techno. Not too much trance, though…

Where was your favorite place to travel to… not related to snowboarding?

I have never traveled without snowboarding… Oh wait… Saipan and Vietnam. I also like the south part of Japan.

What type of cross training do you do over the summer months in order to remain in shape for the upcoming winter?

I love to do a lot of activities like bouldering, mountain biking and skateboarding. I am also on a soccer team called ‘God Hands.’ It is gathering of snowboarder friends. I do a lot of core training and stretching to help my body and protect myself from getting a sore back.

Soccer team of snowboarders? Nice… Did you catch any of the FIFA World Cup soccer matches this summer?

Japan did not do too well, but I was really cheering for Costa Rica. I liked their vibe and the way they played soccer.

What was your favorite memory from last winter season?

We had epic powder in Japan. Traveling around United States was such a good time…and of course, so was hanging with the Flow Snowboarding team in Colorado.

Where are you looking forward to riding next year?

Japan, Lake Tahoe, Jackson Hole, Colorado and Washington, Canada, Alaska, Europe, South America… Anywhere it snows!

Describe your Apres Ski activities. What does Shin do to unwind after a day on the mountain?

Onsen… for sure. It is a natural hot spa. I go almost every time after riding when I’m in Japan. I like to chill and sometimes make Sushi. Checking footage from the day and well… CrackBook. Then I stretch, eat and then sleep. I sleep deep.

Do you have ideas or things you would want to try this winter?

I want to create a unique terrain park in the mountains. A little bit like Red Bull’s Ultra Natural, but more jibbing. Easier set ups for everyone and do some kind of riding party where we could all share the happiness of being in the snowy mountains… and I want to build a mountain lodge like Mike Basich has. An Area-241 in Japan.

Anything else you’d like to say to the Flow Snowboarding supporters?

We never know how long winter will be. Let’s go snowboarding before Mother Earth melts. Snow is AMAZING!

Shin Biyajima keeps up his fitness during the summer months. What are you doing this summer to cross train? Biking, hiking, skating, surfing, SUPing? Or better yet… are you still chasing the snow and snowboarding?
