While you’re waiting for our new downhill yearbook to hit the shelves (or land, if you’ve pre-ordered), get a load of this. Ever wondered what life would be like at the most remote of outposts in the deepest, coldest south?
The Union Glacier documentary is an insight, and it’s also a masterpiece of film making. High 5.
Korua Shapes hitting it just right as per usual with this stash of epic powder explosions from their Japan trip.
Love it. Now we want to go snowboarding.
«SUNŌKERU» follows us on a pow-devouring journey to the land of the rising sun. Hungry for bottomless powder, our crew packed their bags and headed for the snowy hills of Hokkaido for a two-week adventure, boards and snorkels in hand. Seasoned veterans Nicholas Wolken and Atsufumi Mizuno were joined by the fresh energy of our new friend Spencer O’Brien and the young legs of Lars Popp. Christoph Thoresen, Markus Fischer, and Neil Hartmann rounded out the gang behind the lenses, and together we aimed to take full advantage of all the things Japan is known and loved for, consistent snowfall and ramen included. We hope it shows! Enjoy.

This is the sort of adventure we like to see! Fun, stupid, unserious, loads of laughs. You have to give it to Joe Barnes and the Dudes of Hazzard (or, technically, Hazzard Racing). They sure know how to have a good time on a mountain bike. Or a boat. Mind the rock boys.
An incredible feat, Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison (not the Doors one) skiing from one of the world’s highest peaks. Perfectly documented by The North Face filmers Dutch Simpson and Nick Kalisz in this inspiring weekend watch.
How many summits have you peaked? (Watch to the end.)
Commencal hit it out the ballpark once again with probably the most gangster soundtrack in mountain biking. And a cracking edit too. And unreal style.
By the way, we are almost finished working on Hurly Burly 4… we’ll be back soon. Ka-pow.
Brandon Semenuk is the steeziest, most creative dude on a bike, as proved in his latest edit, Act II.
Semenuk is an artist.
Props to Rupert Walker for the edit.
Cult BMX in London… well, Bristol quite a lot but we’ll let ’em off.
Ridiculous amount of ridiculousness from the streets of Lyon with plenty of the best BMX riders in the world congregating for one of the best street jams around.
Good job DIG on the edit.
Red Bull have put together this montage of images from probably the most dramatic World Cup finals ever, with Bruni talking us through the self-doubt and highs and lows of a day in the shoes of a World Cup overall winner.
