Fluofun's interviews are few and far between, but we try as much as possible to make them consistent by giving the word to people who got something to say, made somehow snowboard as we know it today, and contributed to its history... So here comes JP Walker. Inherent part of the international scene for the past fifteen years, JP Walker has witnessed pretty much all the recent changes in snowboarding: the thing getting more big and professional, the arrival of big money and big contests, the rise of snowboarding movies, the downfall of DVD, the jibbing booooom, the explosion and the death of Forum. Time to take a step back and see how all that happened with this extended interview.

Johan Gaume and Thomas Delfino are full of ressources. If you know them, that might be for their impressive skills in freestyle riding. But that would be quite simplistic to put them in that box only. Indeed they wanted to try hikking and splitboarding, and for a first shot they headed to the Dome des Ecrins, famous 4 000m + spot in France which access is generally restricted to experts.
For your information, those guys are rookies in hikking but they ride like hell; Johan got a PhD in nivology and Thomas is an
hyperactive highly brawny dude who studies sport in College, and got a physical condition that would make go pale any contenders of the Tour de France. So as they put it on TV: Do not attempt to imitate what you are about to read in this article, it was made by professionals.

Like every friday from now on, here is the latest chapter of our regular series: Liquid Shit. And this time, let's talk about JP Solberg's biggest worst terrifying terrible fear.
By being almost 30, this unmissable member of the world class snowboarders community has lived a lot of harsh times. So what? Yes, you could expect some "i almost died on that heli trip", or "i tough i was dead after this huge and awful kicker slam"... but it's none of these! So we let you discover by yourself one of the few things that make JP awake a night.

In the very small category of snowboard legends, Devun Walsh has built himself a strong place. Not only a living role model, the guy got the ability to keep us ablazed each time he drops a bomb, uh no pardon, a new clip showcasing his mad skills to ride the backcountry like nobody else. So we had to corner him and ask questions about his past, being and future. And don't miss the special giveaway contest set up by our friends from DC Snowboards ! Meet up at the end of this exclusive interview for all the details.

After Bryan Fox last week, here is the second episode of our brand new series by the sweet name of LIQUID SHIT.
For the record, this series aim to make you think over before fooling around with your board... pros tell you their worst fear as riders, be they shredding a park, the backcountry or whatever.
So here is the time when Danny Kass, the boss of both Grenade Gloves and frozen pipes, exclaimed: "fuck, that was a close one!"

When we heard that Victor de le Rue got invited to the Air&Style in Beijing, we didn't take too long to follow him over there. In fact, he is the first frenchie to be invited to an Air&Style event since Fluofun has been created, his predecessor being Mathieu CrÃ©pel in 2005. Well we all agree that it's kind of easy to blame those contests of flying ans spinning boys, but it must be noted that beyond the fact that they are democratizing snowboarding, all the greatest riders went through them, from David Benedek to Nicolas Muller. And this year you can find judges rather pro-style, with Devun Walsh and Ingemar Backman among others...
So here is a mini portfolio of the journey and the first day of trainings.

Welcome to our brand new regular heading: LIQUID SHIT.
What a stupid name, isn't it? Well the concept behind it is quite simple: every Friday a pro rider will tell you his or her worst fear, while riding. Whether in park, backcountry, pipe, freeride... whatever. So we catched plenty of riders with different profiles, frenchies, foreigners, and we made them talk. Because, yeah, when we ride, we all get to that moment when we know "fuck, that was a close one".
Here is the first episode: the North West lumberjack, the creator of Drink Water, the man always dressed in black, Bryan Fox !

Danny Davis. This guy is one of the radest dudes on a snowboard,
capilary speaking. Whether he is hitting a park, a pipe or some pow lines, the man is perfectly elusive. But we finally managed to corner him between two stupid things for this first interview of the season.
As an extra bonus, two of his sponsors, Nixon and Analog, are giving away some stuff for those of you who are able to read: watch, jacket... Enjoy.

The 1st edition of The Reels festival was held several days ago in Annecy, France. It's now time to think back in retrospect with the help of video, pictures and reflection.
