Living legend Mick Fanning doesn’t see any need for violence. If you drop in on his wave, he just sees you as an obstacle to work into his line.
Clemens is absolutely ripping Stubai Zoo apart right now. The park is still firing and he is crushing every feature in sight. Kicking things off with a monster back 10 nose, this guy’s bag of tricks is deep. Then just when you think it’s all over, the jib line gets the same treatment with an extra dose of style.

From boosting way overhead out of groomed pipe walls to riding away from knee-shattering drops, to spewing both technical ridiculousness and actual vomit in cities around the world, the result of a season’s worth of Stax is an explosive array of the kind of snowboarding worth playing on repeat, or at least until Sam drops his 2016 part.

For me it has brought me peace and clarity and a place where I developed and honed my skills as a cinematographer and film maker.” – Ryan Moss.
Jumping out of an airplane takes guts of steel.
