【動画】The Manboys モンタナ・トリップ編

カナダのウィスラーをホームに構え、今、最高にうまいカナディアンのライダーたちが集まったThe Manboys。

彼らがモンタナへトリップした時の様子をご紹介しよう。

いわゆるカナディアン・スタイルは、カリフォルニアのジバーのように激しい板さばきを見せるわけではないけど、雪山を思う存分に楽しめるスタイル。板に乗れている連中が多いね。
今回のマンボーイズも、パウダーの中で心底スノーボーディングを楽しむエネルギーが伝わって来る。

3.10あたりで見せるマーク・ソラーズのメソッドも見ていて、本当に気持ち良さが伝わるトリックだ。


The Manboys: Cooke City & Fatty Yogurts from TheManBoys on Vimeo.

In this episode, The Manboys head to Cooke City, Montana, and it quickly becomes their favorite location to say out loud. The fact that it’s actually in Montana doesn’t change a thing. Posing as some kind of wintery wild west with sleds instead of stallions, Cooke City promises the Manboys a hell of a snowboarding time. In exchange, the townspeople demand some of the Manboys’ blood in vials, which they then store in a giant refrigerator down by the post office. Is that weird? They thought so too. Also visited in this episode: Nakusp, British Columbia. Excellent selection of delicious, fatty yogurts in Nakusp.

If anyone cares, the Manboys are: Matt Belzile, Chris Rasman, Jody Wachniak, Robjn Taylor, Rusty Ockenden, and Mark Sollors. Shooting was performed almost entirely by Nate Laverty, but also by Tom and Kirk, who don’t even know each other, that’s how crazy this shit is.
