With Summer just starting, we’re exactly 179 days from the start of Winter as I type this… 179 long days between now and the “official” start of our favorite season although hopefully snow will have arrived long before then! In between now and then, though, it’s good to keep your wizardry tricks up to par.

If you don’t have a chance to head out to Windells or Woodward Copper, or even jump on a flight to the Southern Hemisphere, than this is the article for you! Read on and learn how to create your perfect backyard rail setup from Andy Parry!

This article first appeared on Newschoolers, Oct 2015


“This is my homemade rail recipe. I hope you like it!” – Andy Parry

Ingredients:

 

  • Two 2×6 by 10ft
  • Two 2×4 by 10ft
  • Three 1.5″ by 10ft PVC
  • Box of 2.5″ inch screws
  • A Circular Saw
  • A Drill

 

Instructions:

 

1. Cut

  1.  One 2×4 into Five 2′ segments
  2.  One 2×4 into Four 2’6” inch segments

Assemble

Layout your 2ft 2x4s with the 2x6s and screw them in. I like screw in the two ends first then flip it over and put the top on.




Line up your 3 PVC pipes on the ground. Place the frame on top and make sure they are flush with the end of the 2×6. Starting at one end screw the PVC making sure to adjust along the way. Screw in 4 sets of 3 screws for the whole rail.


Now add the remaining 4 2’6″ 2x4s as feet.

Your finished! Add pieces of plywood to the sides to strengthen the rail.

The Traveling Circus goes to Australia in “Chunder Down Under”

January 19th, 2015 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, LINE Traveling Circus Episodes


7.4 – “Chunder Down Under”


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. This is the reason why the International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3) presented the Line Traveling Circus with the first-ever “Best Webisode” award in 2010 and 2011. 3,000,000 views and counting!

Andy Parry’s “Tell A Friend Tour”

December 18th, 2014 - Posted by 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!

December 8th, 2014 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, LINE Traveling Circus Episodes



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
