Tom Wallisch and Dale Talkington head to Mammoth for Some Slushy Spring Park Laps with Good Company
With an absolutely absurd snowpack from the best winter in recent years, Mammoth quickly became THE destination for early summer park laps. The infamous Mammoth Unbound Terrain Park is home to one of the best parks in the world. And Tom and Dale made quick work of it.
All shot and cut by the discerning eye of AJ Dakoulas from Good Company, this short segment offers smooth follow cams and the classic desaturated 4bi9 aesthetic. Toss in some good old fashion rail wizardry by two of the best in the game, and boom; there’s no doubt that this will be one of those edits you bookmark. Watch Dale destroy the iconic (but recently rebuilt as a tube?) Mammoth Deck Rail. Check out that absolutely mental straight left ten cuban. And oh yeah, did you catch the ABM backslide briebe continuing cameo?
But there’s no doubt that Tom puts in down. With his signature effortless landings, capped blunts, and flawless right 9s, tom puts it down with the style we’ve come to expect out of the Pittsburgh native. From filthy, high speed rail tricks, to floaty switch dubs, Tom puts it down.
So why are you still reading this? watch the darn thing already! And Check out Tom’s Ski here to get the tools you need to stomp as hard as Wallisch himself.
Tom Wallisch featured on “The Powell Movement” Podcast
LINE Athlete & Urban Skier extraordinaire Tom Wallisch talks with Mike Powell in his podcast, “The Powell Movement.”
Listen up below:
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.

Drop In, Join In – 2017 LINE SKIS
For 21 years our door has always been open, welcoming every skier and any idea; never denying or dismissing. This is what has kept us young and progressive. Our ranks have grown, our gear has expeanded and change has been constant in our never ending pursuit of our goal from the beginning – to make skiing more funner.
For 2017, we’ve continued to stay true to the original drive of making skiing More Funner, working with athletes & artists to deliver some of the most inspiring skis yet – the innovative Pescado, all-new promodel from Tom Wallisch, Supernatural 86 and the Honey Badger.
WATCH & LEARN: The All New Pescado from Eric Pollard & LINE
/pes.’ka.do/1. A fish that has been caught. This ski is a fish out of water! A directional surfy ski has been in the mind of EP for years. With bamboo sidewalls, Partly Cloudy Core™, a veneer topsheet with a timeless graphic, the Pescado fuses the best of surfing, art and skiing. (158-125-147 / 180cm)
Tom Wallisch with his promodel, the Tom Wallisch Pro in Austria.
The new Tom Wallisch Pro ski is all Tom. The Early Rise™ and Early Taper™ in the tip and tail create a low swing weight that is unrivaled, while its super stable Maple Macroblock core make it sturdy enough to handle any damage that massive tabletops and 30-foot closeout rails can dish out, all while being a fun and playful ski for the entire mountain. The Carbon Ollie Band™ gives it plenty of pop so skiers can launch off kickers and onto rails with ease. At 90mm underfoot and available in three different lengths (164cm, 171cm and 178cm), this ski is the perfect size to ride anywhere. Available for younger shredders is the Tom Wallisch Shorty, a full wood core ski bearing the same graphics as the TW Pro and featuring equal height tips and tails. (117-90-112)
The All New Supernatural 86
The new Supernatural 86 brings the responsiveness and stability that the Supernatural series is known for to a slimmer profiled ski. Its stable Maple Macroblock core, firm Directional Flex and centered Metal Matrix™ make this beast a solid option for a long day of frontside charging. Whether arcing turns down groomers first thing in the morning or blasting through late day crud, the Supernatural 86 can handle it all with ease.
The All New Honey Badger
The all-new Honey Badger is… well, it don’t give a sh*t! Made to be tough as nails, given a simple design, a bomber bamboo core and an affordable price – this package has the bit it needs to kick ass in the park, streets and entire mountain. The Honey Badger. (120-92-116)
