Creative video.

Someone just spent a few days cutting out skate tricks from magazines.
Good for him.

Mon and Tuesday VHS clips:

We got this new camera (Casio EX-FH100) and wanted to try it out today but the windy conditions made us try it out in the driveway and down the street.

It's a fun camera with some pretty high tech features (10x zoom, sequences, sequence morph, slow motion and ramped slow motion in CAMERA).
120 fps looks good, 240 fps a little pixelated and 420 fps is very pixelated.

Eddie wasn't too psyched on his skate shots, but I told him they're just in there to demo the camera. He was almost ok with that.

Video Hyper Shred now own 27 cameras.

Two new clips from VHS.

Here's a clip with Eddie and Stian taking laps in Mammoth while the girls were gettin rad at the Jam.
Todd Richards and DC suit Sean Lake joined us for a few runs at the end of the day.

We also went to Sonora Pass (aka The Garden) the other day to look around.
Stian was definitely on a tanning mission as well.

The parking area at Sonora is usually packed with fellow filmers, photographers and riders but this day we were all by ourselves. Which wasn't surprising considering the snow conditions weren't top notch.

My new blog project.

Me and Eddie Wall started a video blog. I'm pretty exited about it.
I'll probably blog here less from now on.. I think.

Feel free to bookmark us:

We have a Facebook fan page:
And Twitter:
Join the fun.

Here's the teaser for it / us.

“Video Hyper Shred” (VHS)

California, March 26, 2010 — The goal of VHS,, is to update videos and photos every single day of the season. The clips will be short, raw, and feature pro snowboarders, ams, legends, friends, skaters, girls, drunks, industry tools and animals. The site will include all types of snowboarding; film trips, fun laps, bangers, trick tips, archival footage, interviews, behind-the-scenes, hugs, high fives and much more.

VHS will be a great way for riders and companies to get their talent and image out to the public every single day. The creative possibilities are virtually endless and VHS aims to entertain everyone, whether they be pros, weekend warriors, kids, teens, fans, haters, or single women between the ages of 20 and 40.

The internet has changed the way snowboard videos are viewed. Declining dvd sales and growing online activity are signs that the old formula of how we film and view videos needs to change. Filming 200 days a year for a 2 min video part doesn´t make as much sense as it used to.

“Times are changing and we want to change with them. I feel like snowboarding has more to offer then a two minute video part at the end of the year. I just want to show people everything that is involved with snowboarding and this is the perfect way.” says Eddie. Pierre also comments “I have been filming for a long time and I am very excited to dive into something where I can combine my Facebook updating skills and my filmmaking.”

VHS is open to work with all snowboarders and companies. The site will launch today, March 24, 2010.

About VHS Creators:

Pierre is considered to be one of the most respected filmmakers in the snowboarding industry. A native of Sweden, he usually spends most of his time couch surfing around the world documenting things while looking for the perfect mojito.

Eddie Wall has been a professional snowboarder for ten years. He has produced over 16 video parts, won multiple contests, and has been ranked 8th in world wide coverage over the last 5 years. He currently lives between Mammoth Lakes and San Clemente, CA or wherever his snowboard, skateboard, and guitar take him.

Watched "The Cove" yesterday.

Pretty sure it won an Oscar for best documentary the other week.

I think everyone should watch it. Here´s the trailer:

Great clip about Ty Evans top five "Chomp On This" memories.

If you´re not familiar with Chomp On This go to Youtube.
I really liked this clip.

Mr Song is pretty nuts.

The clip starts of a little slow, but after the fakie laser flip things heat up.

Been driving around a lot lately.

Here are some (a lot) of photos from the past few weeks.
I´m guessing I´ve been in a car for about 2500 miles / 4000 km since I got to the US.
There´s so many things to see here. Even though I´ve been coming here about 40-50 times since I was 17 I´m still impressed with this country.

I´ve been spending a fair amount of time in Southern California and Mammoth.
Right now I´m in Idaho at a place where we filmed a lot for Lame and Afterlame. It´s really nice here. The town closest to us is Ketchum and it´s such a cool ski town. You have to visit to truly grasp the fresh air and positive vibes from everyone.

This week me and Eddie are launching a video blog named "Video Hyper Shred" or VHS. We were going to launch it two weeks ago but we´ve been having issues finding a person who can design it for us (Wordpress). Believe me I had no idea how hard it was to find someone who´d work for less than, well.. a lot of money, to help us out... bit now we´re almost there.
Once it´s live I probably won´t update this blog very often.

Look for a launch link within the week.


Funny 10 min clip.

Featuring a lot of handsome men.

Are Greg Lutzka and Chris Gentry Daggers?

Come on.

Well I guess they were tools to start with... but come on Gentry and Lutzka on the Daggers crew... let me repeat: WTF?!

Here´s Lutzka´s Daggers page:
If you for some reason never saw Lutzka at the K-Swiss office.. hold on.. here it is again:

Gentry... I mean.. he had a rollerblade board right? With space graphics?
Well now he´s a Dagger.

Sorry but I didn´t see Luzka and Gentry in Thrashin.
