It's an honor and a privilege to have had Yobeat take a moment to interview Jesse, Geno and Pika about the last 10 years of Think Thank. It's been an amazing ride! So many group photos! Read the interview to see what's next!

We've been going up to The Summit at Snoqualmie the past few days and testing out their new rails. Here's a little edit of a few lines we filmed.
"Current State: Snowboarding is a book that compiles some of the most prominent individuals and images of snowboarding's past three decades. Made up of two interconnected full-size books, it features interviews with 23 of the culture's most influential and original characters, assembled in an attempt to create an overall image of its current state." Written, Edited and Designed by David Benedek
Think Thank's very own Jesse Burtner has ender chapter in this amazing book which is available in limited numbers now directly though: http://currentstate.almostanything.com/
If you haven't seen our 10th video Brain Dead Heart Attack yet go get yourself a copy at your local shred shop if they have any left. The BluRay + DVD combo pack is insane and it has a ton of bonus footage that you can't find anywhere else.
Of course it's on iTunes too. But since iTunes France has decided to remove all titles that don't have French subtitles, you will discover that most snowboard videos won't be available through iTunes in France. So to remedy this situation we have partnered with Europe's X-Treme Video and it is now available to everyone on the planet though:

Ted is a talented dude who gives back to snowboarding in more ways than there are toppings on his signature Spedellis slice, that's a lot of ways. Pushing the limits of urban free style through back to back to back to back hammer video parts is just one of the things that makes Ted a true blue boarder for life. When not strapped in he's strapped down to his lap top and edit studio working on his next Bundyvision full movie installment (disc only, no internet) or exposing his up and coming homies in a Lunch Ramp Gang edits or edits for his food service employers and buddies Cobra Dogs and Spedellis. Oh yeah he cooks for snowboarders too. On top of all that Ted is the mayor of the mythical (temporarily defunct) Bone Zone. You know the place in the woods where Ted, AA Sameway and a bunch of other boarders created one of the world's sickest jib parks with nothing, not even permission. That place.
This part in "Mind The Video Man" represents another milestone for Mr. Borland. Smooth style, technical tricks and well rounded-ness that is often times rare in "jib" dudes. Ted actually isn't a jibber, he's a snowboarder. That's true for a lot of jib kids, they just have to realize like Ted did. Then you'll be having more fun at spots and riding everything in front of you as if you were, well, snowboarding. One of the things that stands out in this part to me is the backside 180 to switch nose press on the drop rail in Alaska. That's a really hard trick, I think he did it every try, or at least got close every try. He's got it like that, don't be tricked by the mellow smoothness, look closer, he's just making the extremely difficult look easy. And the ender, first time ever? Anyways, enjoy Ted Borland from "Mind The Video Man" and check him out in "Brain Dead Heart Attack" he got ender of "Brain Dead", handled biz like only Big Smooth could. https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/id687288014

The battle was fierce in the streets of Minneapois yesterday. The day started out with an hour long Feeder event where local talent threw down for the judges with the hopes of being one of the three to move onto the main event.
When the Downtown Throwdown began the Gods decided to rain down hail upon the contenders. Icy pellets added to the 80,000+ tons of trucked in snow. It didn't seem to thwart their efforts too much and after an insane display of talent the Judges; Sean Genovese, Jake Olsen-Elm, Zac Marben and Ethan Deiss chose the Top 5, Monster Move and the Anouncer's "Think Crab" Best QP trick.
1st: Ryan Paul
2nd: Nial Romanek
3rd: Aiden Flannagen
4th: Ted Borland
