Kiteboarding On Snow

Snowboarding + kiteboarding = one cool sport

Snowboarding + kiteboarding = one cool sport

 

The best kiteboarders in the world are already invited to a thrilling winter challenge. The 2011 Red Bull Ragnarok will gather 200 riders from the five continents to battle in the icy cliffs of Hardangervidda, in Norway.

 

With strong winds and negative temperatures the competition tests the physical and mental performances of any professional kiteboarders. Add snow and vertical mountains and meet “Ragnarok”, a true legend from the Norse mythology where the a battle between the good and the evil gods is only for the toughest.

 

Ruben Lenten and Aaron Hadlow were some of the stars which attended the event last year. The snow kiteboarding contest is a three-hour race of 20 kilometres.

 

Round after round, the weakest will always be eliminated, until “Ragnarok” crowns the grand champion of the white snow.

 

Endurance is the key to success. Only the fittest and the strongest may cross the finishing line and obstacles are everywhere. Source: SurferToday

Nicky and Steve got married on September 4, 2009 in Newquay, Cornwall (UK). The day after their wedding they went surfing with some of their guests in her wedding dress. Great photos as you can see courtesy of Kyle Perison @ http://freetoflaunt.com

 

The photographer this incredible photoshoot was Khalile Siddique. Check out his work @ http://khalilesiddiquiphotography.com

Catching a wave was never so much fun. The expression on her face says it all.

The dress still looks very good despite its “trashed” state.

Summer Snowboarding

Coronet Peak, New Zealand

Coronet Peak, New Zealand

 

The weather is really warming up here in the Northern Hemisphere, but way down south it’s the start of snowboarding season. I know most of you snowboarders out there can’t wait for the brisk coolness of winter to come, so with that in mind, I offer you a nice cool wintry peek from Coronet Peak in New Zealand. Coronet Peak offers some great June, July, August “winter” fun. Maybe during our warm months we should trek on over to the south and enjoy some snowboarding fun.

Awesome One-Year-Old Snowboarder

This video shows it all. Amazing footage of a one-year-old snowboarder. Talk about learning to fly before you can walk. Little Ava Marie shows her stuff as she goes down the slopes of Mammoth Mountain. Looking super cute with her tiny pink snowboard, Ava, clearly has the coordination and balance. Just imagine her in about 15 years at the Olympics!!!

Billboards Into Bags

Here is a wonderful way to reuse old billboard ads instead of discarding them in a landfill. A New Zealand manufacturer, Stash-it, has come up with a method to recycle old billboards into surfboard and snowboard bags. How neat! Most of these billboard bags are custom made and you have a choice of which ad your surf or snowboard bag will be made from. I think this is a great way acquire a totally unique bag while also lowering your carbon footprint. According to Stash-it,” Billboards first caught our attention when we were asked to construct tarpaulins for a timber yard. This fabric is durable, functional and designed to handle extreme conditions. Add the unique graphics and board bags were the next logical application.” I guess you never know where inspiration will come from.
