LINE Goes Wild In The Streets

February 15th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

 XGames Real Ski 2017 Is Live!


 

Forgoing the typical run-based contest, the folks over at ESPN debuted X Games Real Ski last season. The concept was simple: one skier, one filmer, and two months to create a 90 second segment. Whoever produces the best segment wins. Last year, our favorite van-dwelling transient, Will Wesson took home the top spot in 2016, while Tom Wallisch rallied the masses to win the popular vote.

This year, two more LINE skiers were tapped to take a shot at producing the segment of a lifetime: #railgod420 Khai Krepela and burgeoning stunt double LJ Strenio. Four skiers, four different styles and perspectives.

 

Will Wesson

Reigning champ Will Wesson returns to defend his title against some of skiing’s heaviest hitters. Piecing together techy and creative spots with a few massive handrails – and the typical composure we’ve come to expect – Will created a part that oozed style with nuanced technicality.

Tom Wallisch

Tom has never been one to shy away from the larger spots, and this year is no different. Twisting the winch throttle all the way open, Tom drops hammer after hammer with proper style and ease. His segment is marked by heavy spots, banger tricks, and a level of production that only Good Company could produce.

 

LJ Strenio

Urban flip ups. Massive handrails. High consequence lines. LJ, in his first XGames Real Ski appearance, redefines what is possible in the streets. With a stunt-oriented mindset, LJ flips, spins, and puts in all on the line in his segment, often times leaving you wondering what on earth you just watched.

Khai Krepela

Khai is a bit of a darkhorse in this competition, but his segment leaves no doubt: he deserves a seat at the table. With inverted wallrides, high consequence features, and arguably the most articulated ankles in the game, the Park City native makes a statement in classic form.

Analog Rob, Where Have You Been?

February 9th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Everyone’s favorite Canadian, Rob Heule dropped off the radar for the month of January. We couldn’t track him down, and his social channels were suspiciously quiet. However, Rob hadn’t exactly checked out; he was just doing typical Canadian things with his trusty SLR and a few rolls of film.

Between long tours in the mountains, soulful river surfing sessions, and the occasional laid-out backie, Rob Heule’s latest project, Rob’s Rolls, offers an experiential multi-media glimpse into life north of the border. Each image in the immersive slideshow — shot entirely on 35 mm film — is accompanied by audio recorded at the time of exposure.

 

Look for new episodes of Rob’s Rolls throughout the season!

Tom Wallisch is one of the best skiers of his time and is still as humble as they come. From the streets, to the internet, to the X-Games and the big screen, Tom is known for being technical as much as he is known for style. Pretty impressive for a kid who grew up skiing in MD and PA.

Eric Pollard, LINE Skis, Napster, Partnership

LINE SKIS AND NAPSTER AIM TO KEEP MOUNTAIN VIBES HIGH WITH NEW PARTNERSHIP

SEATTLE (January 25, 2017) – Followers of the LINE Traveling Circus series know better than most that a solid soundtrack is just as important as the skiing it’s backing up. Thanks to a new partnership with Napster, now a legit, global music streaming service, LINE aims to make it even easier for fans to find and access the music that’s streamed daily by their favorite brand and pro skiers alike.

Found on both LINEskis.com and Napster’s desktop and mobile apps, fans can enjoy content from a selection of LINE featured skiers. Each athlete will obsessively curate their current favorite tracks into a Napster playlist and publish the selection alongside a bio, photos and their favorite LINE products.

Beginning today, the partnership kicks off with established artist and skier, Eric Pollard, known by many as a key component of LINE’s look and feel. With additional experience in film production and editing, Eric knows a thing or two about selecting cuts for the perfect soundtrack.

<< LISTEN HERE>>

Every two weeks, LINE will unveil a new skier’s playlist, offering fans a listen into the headphones of Khai Krepela, Will Wesson, Hadley Hammer and freestyle magician, Tom Wallisch.

In addition to featured playlists, LINE and Napster will host a monthly photo contest through social media that will extend into the summer. Fans will have a chance to submit entries to win select soft goods and ultimately have a chance at a pair of custom-designed skis with graphics by skier and local artist, Charlie Cultrara. Follow @LINEskis and @napster on Instagram and Facebook for rules on entering.

LINE followers can enjoy a free trial of Napster for 30 days, featuring unlimited streaming of millions of songs, radio stations and curated playlists, then $9.99/month after. For more information, please visit LINEskis.com/napster.

Top influencers growing up? Who’d you look up to? I liked War a lot. That movie was rad. I always liked JP Auclair but I don’t think my skiing or filmmaking ever drew anything from his style to be honest. But Nimbus has always been a really big influence for me. Ask anyone who knows me hahah

How do you setup / tune your gear to your preference? Mount skis around centre (often really crooked) give them a medium detune then ski them into the ground.

You can either spend the day in a bullet-proof terrain park or warm, wet heavy pow – which do you choose? Oh god wet heavy pow, every time.

Ever had a run in with Ski Patrol? Our first lap ever in Japan we found this amazing tree triangle night skiing and it seemed like no one had skied it all week. After a few laps of being dumb Canadians, a super Japanese man in red came and freaked the hell out. Turned out it was super not open. So we told him we were guests at the Hilton and he let us go.
