The November Issue of Whitelines is out and on shop shelves across the the country, packed full of all the goodness you’d expect from your favourite snowboard mag. Here’s what you can expect to see inside this latest incredible (though we say so ourselves) issue.
ON THE COVER: FREE ABSINTHE DVD
We bring you Flipside, the Making of Absinthe DVD that goes behind the scenes with one of the world’s biggest snowboard film outfits. As well as the bromance and the arguments, this features epic riding form the likes of Nicolas Muller, Dan Brisse, Jake Blauvelt, Gigi Ruf and JP Solberg.
TAKE OFF! TRAVIS RICE ON THE ART OF FLIGHT
The most anticipated snowboard film of the year has landed. We’ve gone behind the scenes, interviewing director Curt Morgan and the film’s star Travis Rice, to bring you epic photos and the full lowdown on the filming, the fun-times and the fuck-ups that made The Art of Flight what it is.
WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME
Q: What’s worse than going on a snowboard trip where the members of your crew fall out and start fighting?
A: Being caught in the fifth largest earthquake in history. Which is exactly what happened to the Technine team when they journeyed to Japan last March. We’ve got the full story of their near-death experience.
CHAM PAIN: ROXY TEAM HIT CHAMONIX
Four of the best female riders in the world (including the UK’s very own Aimee Fuller) hit up the gnarliest mountain in Europe last winter. Matt Georges and Johno Verity were there to document the action and bag some of the best shots of the season.
TURNING BACK THE CLOCK: THE NIXON JIB FEST
Back in the day, Nixon’s Jibfest was the competition to go to. Started by legendary rail-riders Jeremy Jones and JP Walker, it set a precedent not only for competitions, but for parks and park-shaping worldwide. Last season, after an eight-year hiatus, Nixon brought it back. Would the old magic still be there? Read it and find out.
