Love/Hate: Gian Marco Maiocco

In the global language of snowboarding, one thing needs no translation. Dudes who FUCKING SEND IT will always make a splash. Every local scene has at least one, and in Northern Italy, the guy making a name for himself globally is Gian Marco Maiocco. But he’s not just sending it off stupid cliffs to flat for fun – he’s also filming himself, editing himself, competing, teaching lessons and hitting the socials to keep his sponsors as happy as he can. Above you’ll find his season recap video. And because deep down, we believe snowboarders are more than just stunt monkeys, we set out to find out more about this tuttofare.

Spaghetti Snowballs

This motley crew of boarders is after some “constructive criticism” on their video from spring in Italy and since we like to give the people what they want, go nuts. But be nice, one kid got broke off pretty bad and you don’t want to make him cry.

Tour du Glace: Val Senales

Portland’s Tour du European glaciers continues in Italy. There are a few kicker shots in this one, but we think you’ll like it anyway. Plus you know what they say about Italy, when you’re here, you’re family. Or is that the Olive Garden?

Rejected Edits: Or Maybe Not!

I think it was Whitey who once said of being an editor, “It’s not my job to tell people they suck.” So we’re gonna try something different with this Rejected Edits feature this week and let you guys be the jerks. Here are a few of the edits we received over the course of the last week that didn’t make it to the site. In some cases they just weren’t great, some were a case of bad timing, and some cases we just couldn’t decide. We won’t spell out our rationale, cause this week, the rejected edits are on you. Below each video is a poll and the results will be final. They won’t actually change the fate of these videos, but they may change our minds in the future, so vote wisely!
