A SUPER SERIOUS event from our friends at Isenseven
Yesterday, United States President Barack Obama welcomed the US Olympic Snowboarding Team to his home. The job of translating bro talk, navigating cultural differences and documenting the event was given to Yobeat. Out of respect for this historic moment Yobeat has decided to publish our account almost completely unedited. Any and all editing was strictly […]
Finally the Olympic shit show has ended and we can refocus on the important stuffâ€”being cool, getting a sponsor-me-tape squared away and keeping current with snowboarding’s ever changing scene. Luckily for you a top secret Yobeat document slipped through the cracks yesterday, and before the blogging world goes crazy stealing our secrets and branding our […]
As soon as his first run was complete, it was scarily obvious no one was beating the tomato, I mean, animal. So instead of expanding on that, Kazuhiro Kokubo’s japan Mctwist was the highlight of the Olympics and Scotty Lago took home a motherfucking medal! NBC blows, but we won with the set up pictured. […]
The top of the podium is a nice place to be. Despite boyish good looks and solid snowboard skills, JJ Thomas has never been a Danny Kass or Shaun White type. He’s always been good, but just lacking that hype that creates true snowboard sensations. Maybe that’s why when JJ ended up in a 3-way […]
Olympic snowboarding started today with the Men’s Snowboardcross. Will the course spontaneously combust? (no) Will Wescott reclaim his medal? (yes) Will anyone do a stupid method on the last jump and blow it? (no) Only one thing is for sure: it would have been better if Palmer made it. Oh and another thing is for […]
You may remember not too long ago Shaun White dropped his new trick: a double McTwist 1260. The timing could have been better, as the biggest threat to his Olympic gold had just fallen victim to injury, but “the kids” seemed pretty stoked on it. With the Games right around the corner, Todd Richards is […]
The Olympic halfpipe competition starts in less than a week and good news! The halfpipe looks a lot like, well, a halfpipe. And according to Arena Snowpark’s Blog it’s 98% straw free. That’s more good news, because a certain blogger who remembers the olden days of snowboarding told us a funny story recently. Apparently, when […]
We’ve got Olympic fever and it’s mostly cause Scotty Lago made the team. Not only is he a good ol’ New England boy, but he’s down for a good time, even while trying to make Team USA. If anyone can show the world what snowboarding is really about (hint: not double corks) it’s Scotty. As […]
For all this talk about how little we care about the Olympics and what not, we’ve really been paying pretty close attention to it. When the team was officially announced on Monday we realized that maybe we are even a little bit psyched to see how big of a junk show Vancouver 2010 really ends […]
More halfpiping at Mammoth. US Snowboarding needs to squeeze in five qualifying events before February, so Mammoth gets two for the price of one! In Qualifiers, Shaun White held off Danny Davis to qualify in first and Kelly Clark, despite already having a slot on the team came out on top for the ladies. In […]
