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.”

The Netherlands based company Prodaptive has invented a way for adaptive riders and paraplegics a chance to go snowboarding. Flow Snowboarding recently had a chance to catch up with Gina van der Werf, founder of Prodaptive to check in and see how the research & development on their initial designs have progressed over the year. Their original Twinrider models had incorporated Flow Snowboarding bindings and we were glad we can be a part of the process to help paraplegics access the slopes.
“The idea to develop an adaptive snowboard originated in Whistler, Canada back in 2010,” said Gina van der Werf, founder of Prodaptive.

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.
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’s Mike Basich had the Discovery Channel out to visit Area 241 for their segment entitled Seeker Stories.

Basich shows how being close to nature drives his most creative decisions.
