For the last week Will, Shane and LJ have been touring Europe for the next episode with the LINE Euro crew. Here is a quick photo update while we have internet access, then its back to the road!
Warning: If you find yourself in the back of a mini-plane like this one, they are probably going to forget to tell you that ski-bags won’t fit.
Tracking down lost luggage in another language is fun!
But, pizza always improves any gloomy situation.
The TC Van, euro style. (with same smells)
Will and Niklas shopping for European underwear.
Wicked Euro menu faces
We got our ski bags just in time to catch the first storm of the trip. Chow!
The day started with Leo T dropping some crazy line and being followed by a few flying men (footage coming in the episode) ten heading up to the Val Park for a nice week ending session with everyone in the sun. Enjoy the pics!
Cloudy day up on the hill today so we took a drive down the valley and then up the 24+ switchbacks up to La Plange which was above the clouds (sort of). We were told about a nice skatepark to maybe build some stuff at. Build we did and fun we had. Enjoy the pics.
We had enough of running into walls or sliding down banisters for a few days and got up on the hill. It had snowed a bunch and finally went blue! If it’s snowing there’s basically no reason to go up the mountain because you can’t see anything. Enjoy the pics!
Today (and night) we got after it jumping into a wall with help from the Red Bull winch. Roy, Niklas and Andy killed it with the MVP of the session going to Tobi Mangold, our 16 year old Line rider who came with the guys from Germany to take part in the fun. Check Tobi’s blog post here. Mix in some urban scouting and site seeing in Tignes and it was a full day of good time. Enjoy the pics!
Well after looking at the big mountains all around us and gawking at the plentiful walls, rails and bonks we could run ourselves into we decided to get to work. The Urban Canyon of Mystery was stop one for a nice line into the canyon throwing you into a double wall ride/bonk/horrific crash. Finshing the daylight with Andy sliding down some cement, gettgin yelled at by a nice French woman and getting barked at by her French dog. Tonight we’ll return to the urban madness with some new jibs we’ve created and might fire up the Red Bull winch..sooo Red Bull!!!! Enjoy the pics!
This place is surrounded by giant mountains and is the biggest interconnected ski area in the world. What you didnt knwo is there is millions of possibilities for urban! To get acclimated to our surroundings what better to do than checked out some urban spots Leo T and the Gypsy Feelin Crew have built over the years. More to come! Enjoy the pics.
After about 24 hours of traveling into the future (we’re 8 hours ahead of PST) we’ve made it to Europe! We’re posted up in Val d’Isere, France for the week with our gracious host and fellow Line ride Leo Taillefer for the Gpsy Feelin crew. Along with other Line Europe rider Roy Kittler, Niklas Erikson and Tobi Mangold. Throw in the guys from Downdays.eu and we have a recipe for fun. Enjoy the pics!
