Here's a little summer time stoke we worked on with the crew over at Lib Tech Skate. An amazing time working with Sky, Mikey and the boys. Here at Think Thank we skate all the time and started filming skateboarding almost 20 years ago. As big fans of everything going on in skateboarding it's super exciting for us to be back in it making movies. Check it out and get stoked to skate!
Remember Double Dare on Nickelodeon, where 2 families had to battle it out through obstacle courses? Well, the Think Thank X Summit at Snoqualmie film and photo shoot that we've done for 2 years now, is sort of like that but without the battling. It's a 3 day event, marking the end of the season, where the whole Think Thank family; riders in the vid, plus friends and local hommies meet up at The Summit to partake in shredding a new set of daring but enjoyable set-ups each day.
Snowboarder Magazine just put up this sweet Dispatch of our shoot from this year, give her a peek at some of the shenanigans that went down: http://www.snowboardermag.com/photos/dispatches-think-thank-x-summit-at-snoqualmie/
Brandon Hammid aka Buffmoose has had more than a busy year this year. Going pro for Arbor, filming a full part for the Think Thank Almanac video, going to Russia with L1 for a month and somehow staying super buff. Besides his life landmarks this year though, Hammid has had a pretty darn unique life story which is partly delved into in this YoBeat Hump Day interview: http://www.yobeat.com/2014/04/16/brandon-hammids-hump-day-takeover/
So for Veteran's Day this year, don't forget to give Hammid a shoutout!
Snowboard parks in the city? Cheap and awesome? The whole family can go for under $40? Sounds like a dream right? Well, wake up! The dream is here and the future is now, ride where you reside! Lib Tech and Gnu are the proud exclusive hardgoods partner of Gateway Parks, a group of snowboarders whose goal is to build a snowboard park in every city in America that the temperature will allow. In January, the Mervin crew descended upon Gateway’s flagship park, Hawk Island in Lansing, Michigan. What they discovered was a ripping good time in an amazing snowboard progression vacuum! Weird and Bitchin’ indeed!
This weekend there's a cornucopia of goings-ons happening on the East Coast. The normally icy slopes of Sunday River and Loon are now less icy from the past weeks of falling white stuff. Perfect conditions for the 2nd Annual The Mike Baker Banked Slalom, Lib Tech's Near Canada Open, Waterville Valley's Back to the Boneyard and Eastern Boarder's Loon Last Call.
With memories from last year's Scorpion Bowls still fresh in our minds, Think Thank contingencies from both the Almanac and Right Turn Left Turn videos will be at as many or all the events this weekend. Ted Borland, especially since he's on the Near Canada Open poster. Don't be surprised if you also see Jesse Burtner, Sean Genovese, Brandon Reis, Sam Hulbert, Max Warbington and Chris Larson.
Here's the line-up of events:
Friday, March 14th: 2nd Annual Mike Baker Banked Slalom @ Ragged Mountain, NH
Saturday, March 15th: Near Canada Open @ Sunday River, Maine
Sunday, March 16th: Back to the Boneyard @ Waterville Valley, NH
Monday, March 17th: Loon Last Call @ Loon Mountain, NH
This coming Saturday, 3/15/14, AK Boardroom, Hilltop Ski Area and Crude Mag are putting on a Think Thank inspired contest where you create the course! Registration starts at noon and the comp starts at 3pm. All ages welcome.
