Hondo’s Weekly Roundup: 8/12-8/17

Do you smell that? Do you? That’s the smell of fall in the air everybody. It’s getting there, slowly but surly winter is coming. Just remember that as these 100 degree days are happening. It will all be over soon, and then the snow will be here. But just becasue it’s hot doesn’t mean that there can’t be radical snowboard edits coming out. There were some heat makers this week, and these are them.

1. Burton presents [SNOWBOARDING]: Teaser

This teaser is the shit. If you’re not down for this, you need to check yourself becasue it’s awesome. The skit is rad (which is normally never the case) and the action is all time. This video got me stoked to snowboard and I’m sitting by the beach soaking up some tropical rays. That says something.

2. Brothers Factory Summer Vacation

Well it looks like the Brothers Factory crew haven’t been having a bad time this summer. This edit shows them riding COC and the Whistler public park. Not a bad place to be during the month of July. Watch as Jeremy Cloutier, Guillaume Marquis, Jason Dubois, Anto Chamberland, Jonas Lapierre, Zach Aller, and Charles Reid rip the shit out of their snowboards.

3. Search for a Cool Place: Have a Nice Day

I spent a long time up at Mt. Hood this summer, and by the time it came to leave, I was more than ready to go. This video by Liam Gallagher makes me want to go back though. The Northwest totally rules.

4. Grilosodes: Welcome to the Desert

Normally when I think of the Desert in Dubai I don’t think of snowboarding. But the new Grilosodes makes me want to go there. A sweet wave pool, a killer bowl, and some boarding? Count me in.

5. Behind the Scenes of the Burton presents [SNOWBOARDING] teaser

I already talked about how sick the teaser to the new Burton movie looks. Now take a look at how they made it. You will think it’s even cooler. Well at least I did.
