The Interior Plain Project’s #ShopsMatter Event

As shops have been the soil of our ever-growing culture, they’ve allowed our roots to establish and absorbed the rain of brands, naturally weeding out the less fertile. Their grounds feed us with energy and insight. They cultivate the surrounding area with teams, events, and premieres. Shops often support snowboarding owners and/or staff. All these things are amazing and we want to hear about and see your local shop in a 15-second Insta edit.

To ENTER: Post a 15 second piece that expresses how your shop/shops influences or has influenced your snowboarding, tagging the local shop, Yobeat, IPP hash tags #shopsmatter #bloodlinescollection #yobeat

Entries should include
-shop image (recent)
-action (recent)
-story of some sort, either verbal or graphic

Winner-takes-all event including IPP deck and goods as well as Yobeat gear. This will be sent to the shop highlighted by winner for pick-up. Winner will be chosen by IPP, Yobeat, and other contributors based on overall impression.

This piece is an example of a style, filmed and edited by Eric Schleicher.

Thank you Snowboard Shops for all the tunes, video premieres, events, sponsorships, brand support, and the list goes on.

Canada’s New Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Rips!

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 4.07.18 PM

On Monday, October 19th, 2015 Canadians across the country went to the polls and voted in an overwhelming majority to elect the Liberal Party’s Justin Trudeau their new Prime Minister. Not only is he young, hip and a total babe, but it turns out, he’s a serious snowboarder. The new PM spent multiple seasons wintering in Whistler and is vocal about  avalanche awareness education, following the death of his brother Michel in a BC avalanche in 1998.

We at Yobeat were able to locate some never-before-seen shots of him snowboarding, and we’re excited to say, Trudeau kills it. Just check it out:


He did the legendary Mt. Baker Road Gap!


And it turns out, some of the spots posted on @brissespots are ABD by the prime minister!


But seriously, anyone who runs on a platform of being good to everyone and legal weed is alright with us, so to celebrate, we figured we’d giveaway a new Leather Tag Watch Cap. To enter: Use your photoshop skills and the image below to make JT look even sicker at boarding. Post your entry on instagram with the hashtag #trudeaurips (make sure to follow @yobeat) or email it to [email protected] with the subject Trudeau Rips. We’ll pick our favorite from all received entries on Wednesday, Oct 28th!
