Remember last Thursday? Canada was having a birthday, astronomers confirmed the first-ever direct picture of an extrasolar planet orbiting its star and we hadn't heard of Charlie Idda.

How quickly that changed! Soon after watching a sponsor-me vid of his (which we are proud to say we put up right here on the site) we heard some good news. The kind people over at YES Snowboards decided to hook him up. We look forward to seeing more of this untapped British talent in the future. Just goes to show what a well put together video (and obviously some sick skills) can do for you!
