Yes, that’s right, it’s the spring and the final issue of Whitelines is here! Not that that means the shred is over for the year, not by a long shot. In fact, even when the northern hemisphere season does eventually wind down you needn’t worry, because this issue is ram-jammed full of ideas and travel tips that’ll help you keep riding well into the summer. Here’s what we have in store for you this month.
ON THE COVER: FREE GIANT POSTER
This month’s free gift is a massive A1-sized poster featuring 2 x Rider of the Year John Jackson. Shot during the filming of Travis Rice’s insane new film The Art of Flight, this shows John at his balls-out best. It’s double sided, so you can choose whether you want John J dropping a ridiculous AK cornice or double-corking a stupidly large crevasse gap on your wall. Either is pretty frickin’ sweet!
RENEGADE MASTER: THE LNP INTERVIEW
LNP is one of the most original riders in snowboarding today, from his erm interesting dress sense to his progressive approach to riding. His super-tech tricks and innovative style mean he’s arguably the best jibber in the world today. We caught up with him to find out what makes him tick – from Sabbath to skating – and to find out what he thinks of the current state of snowboarding. Which makes for interesting reading!
CHILE DOGS: THE YES CREW IN SOUTH AMERICA
Wouldn’t it be cool to go somewhere this summer where you could surf massive waves, then hit up huge hills just a few hours up the road? Well that’s exactly what JP Solberg, Romain de Marchi and DCP did when they headed to Chile. Turns out being your own boss has its advantages!
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: BRITS HIT HELSINKI
Helsinki has a reputation as something of a mecca for urban riders. So when three of the UK’s finest decided to embark on a rail mission, there was really only one place they could go. This is how they handled the locals, the booze and the bitter cold. Oh, and a few rails as too!
ANDEAN TANGO: ROXY GIRLS HIT ARGENTINA
Where do you go in the summer if you want deep pow, incredible food and a bit of South American spice in your life? Why, Argentina of course. The Roxy team headed down there last summer and got lucky… with the snow anyway. Read the story of their trip, and how to do it yourself this summer.
