Flow Snowboarding’s Mike Basich had the Discovery Channel out to visit Area 241 for their segment entitled Seeker Stories. In this video they tour his self-built 225 square foot home in the middle of his 40 acre snow covered property near Truckee, CA that we have all grown to know as Area 241. Basich shows how being close to nature drives his most creative decisions.
Check out this teaser from the upcoming project from Flow Snowboarding team athlete Sarka Pancochova entitled Shark Tales. Shark Tales is a collection of people, places and things experienced through Pancochova’s travels. Colorado has been her adopted home for the past 5 years and she is now stepping away from the park and contest scene to check out what the other side of snowboarding has to offer. Luckily Colorado has been one of the few places in the country getting snow this year. Here are a few outtakes from last week’s film adventure.
Take a few laps through the park with Flow Snowboarding team athlete Sarka Pancochova in this brief selfie park video edit she put together. Pancochova shot this mini shred edit with her GoPro Hero 4 using a helmet mount from Epic.

We snowboarders may be only knuckledraggers to skiiers, but Flow Snowboarding had to tip our cap to the latest film from planker Candide Thovex recently released. One Of Those Days 2 is one of those videos that you have to see if you slide down snow. It was filmed at Thovex’s home of Val Blanc in France. So many elements of this video make it epic.
After watching it (multiple times) we can’t help but wonder what a snowboarding version of this POV adventure would be like. Do any of you have any POV snowboarding clips you would like to share.

Flow Darwin – 2015 Powder Board Review | TransWorld SNOWboarding
This quiver filler was designed in collaboration between Dale Rehberg and Mike Basich is not just a powder hungry bandit, it actually works incredibly well on hard pack as well. The directional shape with its swallowtail and 2 piece ABT was designed around the camber and side-cut to give us “The sickest snowboard ever made”. Lose yourself in the tranquility of the wood veneer top-sheet, zenned out graphics and bamboo sidewalls or take it for a spin to see for yourself. An inspirational board from tip to tail is what we set out to build, and now we have it.

Early Prodaptive Twinrider models utilized Flow Snowboarding’s binding straps.
Prodaptive, which specializes in tools for adaptive extreme sports recently developed their Twinrider, for paraplegics. It is the world’s first sit-down snowboard rig that allows independent riding, a true board sports sideways stance and full control over snowboard performance in both carving and skidding turns on the hill. Prodaptive’s mission is to facilitate people in exploring and expanding their boundaries in snow sports. Prodaptive started developing adaptive snow sports gear two years ago. They work alongside universities, athletes, coaches and sports organizations in order to develop their technologies. Prodaptive also provides lessons and coaching in adaptive snowboarding.
The Twinrider is a sit down snowboard, beginner model and is easily tweakable to fit and balance many users. It is meant for the adaptive snowboard progression, from the very basics, to riding green and mellow blue runs. The handlebars are well suited for dual riding with an instructor. Early models utilized Flow Snowboarding bindings strap technology. See the video below for how the edge-to-edge weight transfer system works (video featuring an older prototype):
Prodaptive is a startup company, working very hard to bring Twinrider and this innovation to the market. Prodaptive founders love to ride, and are super stoked to have created this technology that allows even more people to join the sport of snowboarding.
“Our DNA is not just creation for- but very much creation by the people,” Prodaptive states on their website. “Twinrider was developed by a team of both able-bodied and people with a disability, sit-snowboarders and sit-skiers, instructors, adaptive coaches and engineering students.”
“We’re not a charity nor are we looking to be, we’re just looking to sell Twinrider rigs and spread the knowledge and skills through clinics and demos while making a sustainable living out of that. Additional profits will off course go to further R&D towards advanced/expert rigs for ParaSBX racing, freeriding and park.”
“Please support our efforts and spread the word. If you know of any adaptive program, snow school, or individual that would be interested in a free demo, a full day lesson/instructor training (at a small cost) or buying the Twinrider rig let them know about us!”
Have you or anyone you know been involved with disabled mountain sports on your local mountains? Many resorts run various programs in order to help keep snow sports accessible to everyone.

This one still makes us at Flow Snowboarding smile. Here is an old video from the archives of Flow Snowboarding Team Athlete Mike Basich as the Mountain Yeti in last year’s GoPro television commercial. This was shot in the mystical land of Alaska and edited to Mariposa Venenosa by the musicians Coo Coo Birds.
