Bangers explodes into the new year with another eye-popping instalment loaded with the best action from the world of snowsports. We've scoured the planet for the finest snowboard and freeski highlights on the planet and crammed it all into our latest 25-minute show for your viewing pleasure. Here's what to expect...
This month's show opens with an in-depth look at one of the sickest snowboard movies of the season: UNIQUE8 from Pirate Movie Production. Featuring some of shredding's legendary characters sending it hard in the pow and on the streets, the film's a non-stop barrage of incredible riding and we even manage to sneak some face shots with the crew at Marco Feichtner's home mountain of Silvretta-Montafon.
From one aspect of snowboarding to another, we visit Beijing with a recap of the awesome display of progressive contest shredding that went down at the Oakley Shaun White Air&Style. This prestigious 6 Star World Snowboard Tour event saw double corks and 1440s made to look like stock tricks, plus 16-year-old rookie Yuki Kadono walked away with the big cheque by putting down the elusive triple cork. The awesome-ometer on this definitely went up to 11.
Our mid-season instalment also hits up an epic snowpark in Montafon for the snowpark-opening extravaganza that was the Nike Stairset Session; snags some time with the heavy-hitting Rip Curl team and their movie, Alive&Kickin'; takes a recap on Fischer ski pro Sven Kuuenler's impressive season; previews the Freeride World Tour with Kiwi skier Sam Smoothy; gives you the lowdown on the many things you can learn hitting up the both the Elooa Camps and Youngblood Freeski Camps; checks the hike-fest that is Kick the Vik; and spotlights the rookie-hyping Wir Schanzen snowboard and ski tour.
