While snowboarding in Greece, these boarders’ Odyssey began with the challenge of making it to Kalavryta without ending up in jail, being eaten by dogs or getting caught in a rockvalanche. It becomes quickly apparent that this isn’t your usual snowboard trip. Flow Snowboarding team athlete Antoine Baduel alongside fellow Frenchmen Remy Barreyat and Anto Brotto landed in Athens and headed for Peloponnisos on the very southern tip of Greece. After battling the wild weather they found endless terrain that had barely been touched by snowboarders and put these incredible new lines through their paces.

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.”

Bastiaansen edged out the Kiwi from New Zealand Carlos Garcia Knight by only a fraction (.25) of a point. Bastiaansen is only the second Dutch rider to claim a junior world title.
“At every competition this season I was on stage, but to win here I did not expect it” said Bastiaansen. “I was hoping (to win) of course, but I was just glad I was in the final.”
