Alright alright alright! Here we go with our first legit taste of winter… (OK, if you’re sweating your butt off out there right now, that may be hard to imagine)… the 2012 Warren Miller flick teaser is out and ready for your eyes. The movie is called Warren Miller’s Flow State. Graphic design class

Miller explains the title this way:

“The sixty third feature film from Warren Miller Entertainment brings audiences to a place only recently identified by scientists; a place they now understand skiers and snowboarders achieve where, the faster they go physically, the slower things appear to them mentally. This a place of such singular focus and connection with their environment, they can achieve things previously thought impossible. So come with us as we enter … the Flow State.”

Shred/ Slytech riders include: Ted Ligety, Keely Kelleher and wunder-photographer Marcus Caston.

The summer heatwave got you bummin’? Well, now you can dream about upgrading your winter snow kit with a Slytech Back Protector and a pair of Shred Sunglasses. From now until the end of August, we will be running a summer Shred Slytech sweepstakes whereby 4 lucky winners will win the grand prize.

But you have to enter to win!

Talented on a snowboard and a sick ripper on the surfboard. An image like this makes you wonder when he feels higher: getting barreled or riding hitting the big mountain.

So despite the craziness this week here in Government Camp, we were able to throw a crazy big signing with Ted Ligety. This session being particularly busy allowed us to attract a huge crowd. The event was done in front of our Reliable Racing shop, and was in accordance with Bob Olson (Head ski’s). Camps from around the world showed up, from Russia to Vermont. We were also able to raffle out all kinds of prizes, highlighting a couple of our new Zytel arm-guards. Our kiosk was packed for the whole hour, and Ted was energetic and excited the whole time. Marcus Caston showed up with his amazing camera skills to chronicle the whole event! Good times here in Mt.Hood…

What does an extreme snowboarder do in the summer months to get his stoke on? This Austrian hits the pitch and plays football (that’s soccer for us Americans). Here’s the newest update from one Mr. Marco Feichtner, extreme snowboarder extraordinaire.

Sarah Schleper stopped by the Fuxi Racing Shop in Government Camp for some autograph signing action and meet n greet. While she was fashionably late, the kids stuck around to meet her. That go her pumped to see such a big female fan attendance. Kid’s got some poster’s signed and then received some free shwag if they answered a few questions correctly. All in all a good time!

As you may recall, Sarah retired this past spring, but by the looks of it still loves to get her ski on! Thanks Sarah for sharing the love!

Make sure to send us some pics of your next surfing trip. I’m sure it can’t be too far off.

I just spied this vid on Whitelines.com and thought I’d repost… the question is: Who’s getting more impressive POW action here… Swiss-born shredder Romain de Marchi or French Canada’s own Benji Ritchie in this Whistler session?
