Mike Basich has been one incredibly busy person this year. Filming as a stunt double for a Hollywood movie, traveling to Europe and Alaska, and building his own house on wheels! We don’t know where the guy finds all of this time to do these things, but we’re stoked that he does and we get to enjoy watching his adventures. We caught up with Mikey B recently to learn more about his non-stop Winter season. Continue reading
Flow’s Mike Basich tests out the new FollowCopter. The footage is insane!
Mike Basich is as rugged as they come. He is a modern day mountain man. He can update his Instagram while in remote Alaskan Backcountry. All he needs is the bare essentials; his Flow Snowboarding gear, an avalanche kit, and a GoPro. While most of us are dreaming of these adventures, Mike Basich is living it.
Favorite thing about Backcountry
“Quiet, No tracks, and nobody telling you where to go!”
How has GoPro changed the way you share your snowboarding?
“GoPro has saved my back, I used to haul around a 40 lb backpack, now my pack doesn’t even know there is a camera in it. That’s for sure one of the best parts. Quality with it has been great too in such a small package. I ride with the camera more, I used to set up things a lot on a tripod.”
What can we expect from Mike Basic This year and your Storm Chasers Project?
“For sure working more and more this year to chase the storms. I’ve been building a new rig on a trailer that I am excited to head to Alaska with this spring.”
What other things can we expect?
“Working on getting more creative with filming, been racing as well with what’s left of winter, such a late start. I’m excited to get some deep days in.”

Social Media is an amazing phenomenon. We have access to our favorite athletes, companies, and famous personalities at the touch of a button. It is connecting people all over the world and sharing locations that most people would have never known existed. Snowboarders are the ideal people to follow on social media. They travel to amazing locations, meet incredible people, and do awesome things! Flow has compiled their list of 5 snowboarders to keep an eye out for in 2014.
Every cloud has a silver lining. Flow and the rest of the snowboarding world is bummed that we do not get to cheer on our favorite American at Sochi this year. However, everything happens for a reason and we believe that 2014 will be a great year for Scotty. Without the pressure of the Olympics, Scotty will now be able to travel and ride amazing backcountry locations. What does that mean for his social media followers? Amazing photos, videos, and content that we can spend hours watching, re-posting, and drooling over. Expect big things from Mr. Lago in 2014.
Tim is one of the most up to date snowboarders in the world. With GoPro being one of his sponsors, Tim constantly has a camera on him at all time. He loves editing and posting clips from his sessions and we, as social media followers, get to reap the benefits. Tim’s light-hearted approach to snowboarding and life is a breath of fresh air for social media followers. Tim is also very engaging with his followers on social media. Ask him a question, he’ll respond.
Sarka is currently in Sochi and when she is not competing, she is riding Russia’s pristine backcountry. Sarka is a very relaxed and happy girl, but when she puts on a contest jersey it is all business. Sarka is definitely a snowboarder to watch in 2014. Follow Sarka to see how she is doing in Sochi and with her travels in general.

The term “Off the Grid” doesn’t even begin to describe Mike. This guy is as rugged as they come. He lives and breathes backcountry adventure and has traveled to the most remote places in the world. Mike doesn’t need much to survive. Give him a Flow setup, some food, and a GoPro and he delivers social media gold. Mike’s latest venture is his “Stoked Storm Ready” project where he built a house on a flatbed trailer. He is currently traveling all over North America chasing storms and snow. Mike is definitely worth following on social media.
Drayden is an up and comer in the Snowboarding world. At just 14 years old, he is already making a name for himself. This young world traveler found himself on the podium in both slope style and pipe this year at the Burton European Open. Drayden is constantly documenting his travels on social media and is definitely worth following.
