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.
This is a Flow Snowboarding binding overview. In this video Flow’s Dale Rehberg highlights the key technologies and features of the 2014 / 2015 Flow binding line.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Flow Snowboarding is Giving Away A Darwin ABT Snowboard
SAN CLEMENTE, CA, Feb 11th, 2015- Flow Snowboarding
Continuing with their monthly snowboard giveaway, Flow Snowboarding is giving away a Darwin ABT snowboard this month. The winner will be selected on February 28th. In order to enter the contest, please use the link found in the header in the blog section of Flow.com or the application located on Flow Snowboarding’s Facebook page. The Darwin ABT snowboard is the quiver filling powder board of choice for Mike Basich, Shin Biyajima and all the Flow team athletes looking to float the powder.
Never deep or steep enough and it carves like a knife. This quiver filler was designed in collaboration between Dale Rehberg and Basich, 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.

For most of us in the ski and snowboard industry, especially here at Flow Snowboarding, we are well familiar with what SIA and the yearly SIA SnowShow is in Denver, CO. We also realize that there are a lot of snowboarders and skiers that may have no clue what SIA or the Denver SnowShow is. Flow Snowboarding wants to give you a glimpse into all the hard work we at Flow, along with all the other brands within our industry do in order to make SIA the most anticipated trade show in North America.
Essentially the SIA SnowShow is the grand reveal of next winter’s snowboards, boots, bindings, hard goods and soft goods. Flow Snowboarding received some awesome feedback and input from everybody who stopped by the Flow booth over the last week. A handful of our team athletes came down from the hill to help assist at the trade show booth as well. Mike Basich, Sophia Capua, Dru Williams, Cees Wille & Jordan Zdanek were all on hand.
SIA SnowShow is a trade show at the Denver Convention Center by day, allowing various brands, industry, retailers and shops glimpses of next winter’s line. The evening is stacked with multiple events throughout the city by night; events like the TransWorld Snowboarding Riders Poll and individual industry parties thrown by various brands. So many events all week, you have to pick and choose which ones you are going to.
If after working all day and talking about snowboarding in Downtown Denver gave you an itch to ride, the wiser team athletes in the industry have discovered Ruby Hill Park just 15 minutes south of the city center. It’s a public park that is well lit with a hillside, covered with man made snow and park features. The park is typically open until 9 and is maintained by Winter Park Resort. This year for SIA, there was a rail jam and even a concert featuring Air Dubai.
The final two days of the trade show (2/2 – 2/3) move up to the “On Snow Demos.” This year the demo is at up at Copper Mountain Resort. If you are industry, we would love to see you up here. If you are not industry, just riding around Copper you will see every brands’ skis & snowboards on the hill. A perfect way to start your wishlist for next year.
Have you lads and ladies seen the new Flow Snowboarding line for next year? Are any of you up here at Copper Mountain for the “On Snow Demo?” If you are in the industry, we would love to see you up here.

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.

Epic is an understatement when you watch the new GoPro commercial from Flow Snow team athlete Mike Basich using a drone. Basich takes selfie filming to the next level. We have been waiting to see the next drone footage from the backcountry, and Basich does not disappoint.

Our good friend and Flow Snowboarding team athlete Mike Basich was off in Italy last week filming for the major motion picture Point Break, a reboot of the famous Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves 1990’s film. Where the original film focused on adrenaline, highlighting surfing and skydiving… it would seem natural to include backcountry and big mountain riding in the sequel. We were able to track down Basich in Italy for a little Q & A about filming in Italy, along with a few other projects he’s been involved with.
So you are in Italy now? What has the experience filming for the next Point Break film been like?
I must have watch the first Point Break ten times in the first months of release back then. It is pretty cool to be apart of something from the past into a new era. We are on our second shoot. The first one was a bit hectic, stressful and on the dangerous side of riding. Conditions where sketchy, lots of slides.
Where exactly have you been filming?
We have been in Italy. Courmeyaur. All heli stuff. Heli-ing for Hollywood is very different than Alaska heli or any ski heli service. Taking a ride in a heli by yourself is pretty common here. A very strange feeling for me.
We have to ask have you had a chance to meet Keanu Reeves with the filming?
Keanu Reeves isn’t in the new film. It’s a cool crew this time around. I can’t announce who they are but, I have been working with them on this second shoot.
Anything else you would like to say about the current or past shoot, or film coming up?
I haven’t done stunt work like this before. It is for sure different following certain things that needed to be done for the shot. Like riding with multiple people on a sketchy slope…
Now that winter is upon us… What are your travel plans over the next few months?
On a plane soon as this trip is over to gather together the last to do list for Area-241, and getting the chairlift dialed. Hoping it will be a good season. There is so much to happen still at Area-241 with the Flow crew.
Anything you want to mention about your successful Kickstarter or portrait book?
I just finished up the details of my Self-Portrait book. It’s called The Frozen Chase. Sending over a sneak peak of it. It will be available at www.Area-241.com end of January. It is a 130+ page photo book of my self-portraits over 15 years.
Anywhere else your followers and Flow family could see what you have been up to?
You can check out my segment in the new Absinthe Films movie Heavy Mental and the film The Little Things, both currently available on iTunes.
When you see the film trailer for Point Break 2, look closely… You will probably see our brother Mike Basich, especially if it involves a mountain, snow and a killer snowboard line.
