Ladies and Gentlemen, Tom Wallisch is back!

For anyone who didn’t have a chance to get his leading performance, catch his run in the video above. If you did tune in, then you probably saw that Tom was probably having a MoreFunner time than anyone there à la “riding the bull.”

G’Day Mate! The Traveling Circus heads south to the continent of Australia, land of the majestic and noble Kangaroo in the latest episode of Season Seven, “Chunder Down Under.” Watch Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Max Hill and filmer Shane McFalls immerse themselves in local culture and music (Who gave Andy a didgeridoo?) while exploring the resorts of Thredbo and Mt. Buller with local skiers Doodle Dowdall, Adam Kroenert & Talae Rodden and always meeting fascinating characters like Disco Stu.

ABOUT LINE TRAVELING CIRCUS:

Admission is free! No high-end production crews, annual movie sales, snowmobiles or AK heli trips here. Powered by more creativity, ingenuity and hyperactivity than a 3rd grade art class, this band of misfit skiers is led by die-hard ski bums Will Wesson and Andy Parry. Criss-crossing the globe in search of angled surfaces to ski on, the Traveling Circus is part reality TV, part ski bumming. For comedy, adventure and skiing antics that prove truth is more entertaining than fiction make sure not to miss an episode. Every online webisode is watched hundreds of thousands of times by skiers around the world.

Blister Gear Review goes Supernatural


Blister Gear Goes In Deep with the Supernatural


This season, we released the All-New and award winning Supernatural series – a hard charging freeride ski built and expanded from the much loved Prophet.

We could go on-and-on about our new favorite all-mountain charger but don’t take our word on it; take theirs!  > Blister Gear Review provides one of our favorite in-depth reviews!

“The ski provides a VERY fun, interesting mix of playful / poppy and directional “chargy” skiing. I was even willing to spin several 3’s on the 108.” – Will Brown

“The Supernatural 108 feels quicker and does not ski as heavy” – Jonathan Ellsworth

“Tipping the skis on edge, the 108 wil hook up and begin to pull across the fall line more quickly, and with more energy” – Will Brown

Blister Gear Review “Best Of” Awards

December 23rd, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News, LINE Skis Reviews, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)



We’re honored to be included in this year’s Blister Gear Reviews “Best Of” Awards! Three of our 2015 skis are featured – the Sir Francis Bacon, the Pandora & the Magnum Opus.

For those of you who might not be entirely familiar with Blister Gear Review, the collection of reviewers pride themselves on honest to goodness with their reviews – “the typical BLISTER review is around 1500 words. We will give you our honest opinion, and we will back it up with detailed analysis” boasts the site.

Read what they had to say!

The Best Playful All-Mountain Ski – The Sir Francis Bacon


“For those who like the looser, more forgiving feel of a tail rockered ski, or who want a light and playful ski to trick around the mountain.

Cliff notes version of Jason Hutchins’ reviews of the 184cm and 190cm Bacon: Of all the skis I’ve ridden, I’d call the Bacon the most versatile one-ski quiver option currently available for the playfully-minded, all-mountain skier.”

The Best Women’s Versatile Pow Ski –  The Pandora

“The Pandora is a versatile, every day ski for softer snow conditions. For a 110mm underfoot ski, the Pandora still carves nicely on piste, but is an absolute blast in fresh snow, soft chop, and more playful, open terrain.”

The Best Playful Pow Skis – The Magnum Opus

“If you’re looking for a powder ski to take out on deep days to search for natural features to spin, flip, and drag, I can’t think of a better ski for the job than the Line Magnum Opus.”


We’re a big fan of their A/B reviews too! – See their recent of the Supernatural 108.

Andy Parry’s “Tell A Friend Tour”

December 18th, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

The Tell A Friend Tour is coming! The Tell A Friend Tour is coming!

Don’t know what the Tell A Friend Tour is? Well, we went straight to the source – Andy Parry – to get you all the need-to-know-info!

Read on >>

What is the Tell A Friend Tour, Where is it headed and Who’s going?

Tell A Friend Tour is a freeskiing park tour that travels to resorts film, ski with fans, and then hold a free raffle/pizza party.  This year we are visiting resorts in VT, MA, CT, PA, WV, OH, MN, and WI.  Ross Imburgia, Charlie Dayton, Ian Compton, Cole Drexler, Allan Lam, and other Line Skis regional riders.

Why? Why create the Tell A Friend Tour?

Over the last seven years of filming Line Traveling Circus,  we visited  a lot of resorts other people never really go to. A lot of these places had tons of kids that are really into freeskiing but they aren’t really on any ones radar.  These skiers are the bread and butter of the ski industry and it only makes sense to bring a ski event directly to them.

TAFT represents what freeskiing was when I started in 2002.  Fun, but also serious about progression because your hungry for it.  It was about learning a new trick with a bunch of friends and pushing each other because it was fun.  None of us really went out of our way to “train” for comps but still competed at local events, and used them for a source of community more then anything.  It’s true freeskiing, and that what I want to show the next generation.  Not comp skiing, not film skiing – just freeskiing.

With the Traveling Circus, you’ve criss-crossed the country multiple times – What are the top five bits of advice you’d give anyone who’s about to head out on the open road?

1.  Need dental floss?  Rip a small strand of the elastic out of a sock.
2.  Don’t be a tool to fast food.  Find a grocery store.
3.  Download audio books for long trips.
4.  When driving at night place a small dimly lit LED over your head.
5.  Avoid drinking things like Monster, RockStar and Redbull  All the sugar and other stuff they put in those will just make you crash harder, and feel sick.  Slowly sip coffee, and get a 5 hour energy.

What’s your favorite stop?

I’m really looking forward to all the stops.  Each one is going to have a different crowd of skiers, and things set up.  Can’t really say I have a favorite stop but last year we had the best showing at Ski Sundown, CT and had a really good crew of kids at Butternut, MA.

In 140 characters or less – Why should we go to TAFT?

Come to TAFT to have fun skiing, eat pizza, and win free stuff!

TC 7.3 – That’s Different


ROADTRIP! The Traveling Circus embarks on another epic journey – err, maybe not! The crew runs into van trouble, which leaves them and their travel plans stuck in neutral. Will they ever be able to leave Utah? With some quick internet-ing, their plans are up in the air, literally!

The TC Crew’s last minute scrambling lands them in the mid-west where they find rope-tows, road-kill and roller-coasters. Watch this episode and you’ll surely be saying, “That’s Different.”

“Why’d you take your socks off?” – Will
“I had ‘em on since yesterday and they’re my ski socks…so it was like, itchy.” – Andy
