Most Villain – Edollo and Albaladejo

Most Villain – New Edit from Henrik Harlaut & Noah Albaladejo

“Henrik Harlaut is arguably the biggest name in skiing right now and Noah Albaladejo might well be the industry’s fastest rising star. By my count this is his third absolute banger edit in the last few months, not bad for a time of year when pros traditionally take a break. The two villains have combined for the second time this year to drop a insane edit sure to melt your face. Most Villain is inspired by music from MF Doom & Madlib’s album ‘Madvillain'”. – Adam Spensley / Newschoolers

“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.” – Charles Bukowski

“It’s just the complete package and absolutely chock full of awesome.” – Mr. Bishop, Newschoolers.com

Clayton Vila is set to release his own solo project this Fall and we cannot be more excited. FIVE, as the work is titled, will be Vila’s first release as principal director,  self edits such as The Creep not withstanding. Details about its contents are few & far between which has only fueled the hype.

10 Ways to Enjoy the Off Season

With the majority of resorts in the Northern Hemisphere closed down for the season, the countdown has officially started until the bullwheel spins & the 2014/2015 winter season begins! In between then & now, there’s plenty of opportunities to get out and work on evening out that goggle tan. As such, we asked Tom Wallisch to put together a list of ways to enjoy the off season.

Check out his top ten below!

1) Recover // Unfortunately this season I’ve had to spend a lot of time in the spring and summer recover from ACL reconstruction surgery. Try not to fit this activity into your schedule! Ha!


2) Enjoy the Sun // As soon as spring rolls around it gets even easier to get outside everyday and do something fun. After a long winter it’s just nice to be out in the sun messing around with your friends. Maybe go for a swing.


3) Backyard Games // One of my favorite things to do in the summer is play backyard games. Cornhole, bocce ball, horseshoes, frisbee, and so many more. Get out and enjoy the backyard!


4) Go to the Beach // Summer is an awesome opportunity to explore beach destinations. A beach is a very awesome place to be after an entire winter in the mountains and snow.


5) Skateboarding //  Even though I suck at skateboarding. A still love trying to get better every summer.


6) Boating // Getting out on the water in the summer is one of my favorite things to do. From enjoying some beers with friends to surfing, or wakeboarding and everything in between. Being out on a boat is just great.


7) Exploring // It’s awesome to get out and explore the world around you. So many natural wonders to be seen!


8) Watch Sports // I love getting out to pretty much any and all sporting events. Baseball, football, soccer and whatever else; just a generally good time!


9) Amusment Parks // Why not? Go ride some rides. Get hillbilly with it. Those coaster are fun.


10) Mountain Biking // Going fast, catching air and shredding through trees like you were skiing. Who doesn’t want to mountain bike?
