Via Street Giant
Oaft! This is going to be amazing…
Boarders Travis Rice, John Jackson, Scotty Lago and Mark Landvik, among others, travelled to Alaska, Aspen,Chile, Patagonia, Jackson Hole, British Columbia and more to create The Art of Flight. This film looks like more than your average boarding movie, it’s in a whole new league of its own and I can’t wait until it’s release in September! Goose pimples!

Ohh to spend a night in one of these cosy looking Whitepods…
…and then to wake up and do a bit of this…

Beautifully shot mountain biking video, FRAMED, featuring German freerider Andi Wittmann. By Felix Urbauer (check out his other work) and backing track by Welcome Home by Radical Face. I always like to see extreme sports videos being shot in creative and inspiring ways and this one ticks all the boxes for me. Enjoy.
music: song radical face-welcome home
filmed with red one,sony ex1,canon mark2D5
edited with adobe premiere cs5 and after effects.
The BBC have written the following article…
Watch every minute of this video. It’s worth every second (the second one). This should be an advert for Scotland over that Sean Connery Home Coming drivel…
Or this…Danny MacAskill “Way Back Home”
It’s a no brainer really. What a legend.
Here’s a sweet skate film by Lifetime Collective that made me smile ! Inspired by New York photography and with Petula Clark’s famous track Downtown, Director Brock Mitchell shot this short film following Sean MacAlister cruising about the streets of Calgary.
I want to pay homage to the beautiful work of StudioAKA, who have produced the new BBC Sport – 2010 Winter Olympics Animation in Vancouver. If you haven’t seen it or noticed it, shame on you (or you just have a life and don’t watch TV or live abroad) Watch the ad below and enjoy.
Directed by Marc Craste and Designed by John Klassen
Here’s a reminder of how good the BBC advert for the 2008 Beijing Olympics was.
Good job Beeb!
Pharrell William’s turned up in Cannes for the 2010 NRJ Music Awards wearing a pair of Nike Snowboarding x Arbito Zoom Force 1 Boots. In my opinion the word bozo springs to mind, maybe he should hang out with vicky (see Chanel Post). Make your own mind up about his choice of shoe for the occasion…
If Carlsberg made half pipes they’d probably be the best half pipes in the world… Hell no, Red Bull made one recently and made it all for pro boarder Shaun White. Imagine that! The video is inevitably quite cheesy and I wish someone would tell him to trim his mane! Thankfully the predictable rocker love hand gesture (see below) appears only once, but when you get past all that it doesn’t seem too nippy and I quite enjoyed it. There’s no denying that Redbull have produced a pretty amazing pipe for the 23 year old snowboarder.

This spring Chanel are bringing out a range of surf boards for all those celebrities to rip some waves in style. Like the Chanel ski’s I can’t really imagine anyone but the Beckhams or supermodels actually buying these, to help them attempted some gnarly extreme sports!! Here is a collection of other sports wear that Chanel have made to make the lives of the rich and famous that little bit more chic. Cough, Naff.
…Ummm, I was sure there was a beach in central Paris….keep walking love!
Ohh yes, the Chanel rubber dingy, what better vessle to watch F1 in Monaco than this…WHY bother Chanel?!!!
Ahhhh, thats why!! So that you can use your Chanel Angling Kit of course ( follow the link for a rant about this ridiculous Kit written by an equally bemused blogger) . But don’t forget to remove your 6″ heels as you may tear the dingy, I would recommend these bad boys…
What’s more manly than seeing a guy playing basketball with, yes you got it, a Chanel basket ball or American football.
…ohh dear. I just don’t see them catching on… Stick to the perfumes and the clothing.
Finally, Victoria Beckham’s Area of expertise. Look how she demonstrates the skill and poise required in skiing, not to mention the excellent choice of clothing.
Bend ze Kneez Vicky!
She forgot to put her ski boots on, either that or she’s walking back from the hire company which I highly doubt…
For more go to Chanel’s full selection of sportswear.
Beautifully shot, with creative camera techniques, not your average snowboarding video, plus it delivers a message of choice and change.
