So, it's the New Year! And whether or not your bothering to make any resolutions about becoming a 'new you', there's a new issue of Whitelines out - which you should probably go and get your hands on. Hit 'more' to see what's inside your favourite mag this month.
ON THE COVER - FREE STICKERS
Does what it says on the tin really - high quality stickers featuring the Whitelines 'W' and logo, so you can make that brand new board you got for Christmas look sick.
MAKING TRACKS - CANADA'S POWDER HIGHWAY
Western Canada always conjures up images of incredible terrain, BC bud and bottomless powder that you need expensive helis - or at the very least snowmobiles - to access. But it's not all endless expense out there. Cat-boarding can provide a cheaper way to access this powder paradise, and get your hands on all those goodies (well OK, maybe not the BC bud - try the dudes who hang out above the New Amsterdam Café in Vancouver for that ;-)) Whitelines headed out there to check out whether it's all it's cracked up to be.
JAKE BLAUVELT - THE FUTURE OF FREERIDING?
In the space of a few years, Jake Blauvelt has gone from being an East Coast contest kid to becoming one of the Pacific Northwest's top free-riding talents. Already compared to the likes of Nicolas Muller and Terje, this shred-dog is surely destined for big things. We caught up with him to talk about his career so far, and where he wants to take free-riding in the future.
The Relentless team (so that's Jenny Jones, Tyler Chorlton, Gary Greenshields and Dom Harrington) took one of the coolest pre-season shred trips ever last summer, heading down to Chile to sample the country's famous powder. This is the full story of their adventures in the Andes.
DUDE RANCH - A NIGHT ON NIKE'S JIB FARM
Nike 6.0 put on an impressively original jib comp recently, transforming a farm in rural Bavaria into one of the best rail parks the world has ever seen - and then inviting a whole host of the world's best rail riders to rip it up - including the UK's Jamie Nicholls, Sparrow Knox and Little T. Here's what these three - as well as Jed Anderson, Louis-Felix Paradis, Wojtek Pawlusiak and a whole host of others - got up to.
