Traveling Circus Episode 6 Preview

So the TC Crew was in town last month for a little while and we hit up Sierra. It was a super fun day nice and soft and the mellow sized park jumps were pretty fun. I mounted the GoPro to my poles and did a little follow cam action for the TC fans. Check it out not only did I shoot, edit and perform slippery sliding tricks of my own. I also produced the beat to the edit and played electric guitar in it as well."C'mon Son" give your boy some props.

NEW Line Traveling Circus Episode 4

So the Circus has done it again, Their second drive across country. This time with a new character in the bunch Ian Compton (aka Chompton) and you'll see why. This episode is super funny from NY Gapers to renting sled dogs. They hit up some surprisingly good parks in the mid west. Stops including Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. check it out when you got like 15 minutes and sound on your computer. My favorite Episode of the season. Nice work TC!!

Skiing the Buttress

So I skied the buttress this morning at Alpine. There was a few other guys that got out there first, but there was still some great snow. Benson emailed me a few days ago and told me to ski the Buttress for him, since he is out of town doing stuff for Columbia.

It got me the thinking that I have never skied center line of the buttress. So I called Lars and asked if he would cover the live chat for an hour or two, he unhappily agreed. So myself and a whole 7 people waited for the rope to drop for the hikes at Alpine. I wish I sent it a little bigger but whatever it was still fun line.

Alpine Park Session

Tuesday I did a little warm up park riding at the ol Pine. No serious tricks were thrown down yet but it was nice to get my park feet back under me a little bit. The rail set up was pretty legit in the main park. No boxes no ride ons just some hard metal to slide across. The Jump line was not the typical Alpine jumps you would expect but its still early and I know they have room and plans for improvement. Once again I was using the new GoPro HD to film all of this, check it.

did you put wood down on the stairs so if you came off early it wouldn't hurt you?
 
Blogger Rals
That is a sick looking rail. What was that you used to get speed for it?
 
Blogger Nicky B son, aka Turka Lurk
No Wood, it was actually concrete feeling ask Drury how soft it was. We used a bungee, and it was a little sketch

Face Shots & Core Shots (part2)

So here is part 2 of Face Shots and Core Shots. The visibility was a lot better you can see how non crowded squaw was. Pretty sick for early season blower. Its a good thing that I ski on Line's because the fatty base & fatty edge allowed me to blast over the rocks like it was my job. For the record not one core shot in the 2 days of skiing on rocks.

L is for Lots of fun

So here is a short edit of my first pow day skiing over rocks. I was a lot of fun and super sketchy. The word of the day was carnage because people were sprawled all over the hill searching for their skis. As I rooster tailed by neglecting to help. I had a really hard time seeing what was in front of me so I did fall upon some surprises. Anyways this is part one and it was shot on Monday. Part two will be Tuesday and posted tomorrow.

The Traveling Circus Season 2

Yes its true,
The Traveling Circus is back for season 2. This is episode 1 filmed at Mt Hood. Once again I wrote the theme song plus they used a couple other tracks that I produced. These kids are so creative and have built a strong following after last seasons success on the interweb. They are from New York so you know they kick ass. Stay tuned for more episodes and enjoy.

Nicky B and Ben Shred Mammoth

So as I promised I put together a little edit of Ben and I at Mammoth for the last day of shredding. My dog Tank also made his first skiing debut and for the record he was a hit. As you my or may not know BEN LOVES TECHNO!!! So do yourself a favor and don't watch this without sound. Don't have headphones? grab some skullcandy's or a headphone beanie. Did Josh disable your sound? well that's your problem you were probably watching to much non work related material on a Porters computer. (as we all know it is useless without sound).
Anyways this is my first time riding with Ben which was sweet, and we got to surf together two days prior. He showed me some ski ballet moves, and made me look silly in the bumps. So without further delay (besides your internet connection) ENJOY!!!
