Winner Updates 3-Piece Quiver

Jonathan we admire your Flexon collection and deem it best of the locker room. There’s still a little spare shelf space, so we’ll add some Full Tilts to that collection! Check out his entry!

Ahhh, the venerable Flexon. Growing up skiing at the 270’ vertical drop Boston Mills in Ohio bashing bumps was really about the only thing we did to have fun. There were no terrain parks so the only jumps we could get away with were doubling moguls in close proximity. No Park Bulley’s grooming out kickers daily.

This collection of Flexons has taken me through my 20’s and now into my late 30’s in style. I keep getting older and skiing terrain keeps getting better, which is kind of a bummer but the Flexon’s have kept me happy and relatively shinbang-free for a while.

I now instruct at a little resort in Southeast Michigan and I am the minority in the locker room when it comes to boots. Lots of Technicas and other stiff-as-hell race boots and my Flexon’s are there every day, bucking the trend, people ask me all the time what kind of boot that is. I am kind and answer them…but I am thinking, “Dude, if you have to ask then you wouldn’t get it”.

I would love to keep spreading the good word in a pair of fresh Full Tilts.

Thanks for bringing these legendary boots back!

Old Boot Life of Party

Not only was Charles-Eric Dolce’s old ski boot given new life and purpose by making it the life of the party, it made its way to the upper echelons of ski society… Andy Parry.

With freeskiing going to the Olympics, it seems like part of the sport is starting to take itself a little bit too seriously and forgetting about the fun part of the freeski lifestyle. So, one hungover morning while on the ski lift, I started to wonder what my ski/party crew and I could build to represent our sport and bring that vibe back as much as possible. We decided to build a beer bong in a ski boot. To build this magnificent piece of art, we had to sacrifice an old pair of ski boots, invest gigantic amounts of money in a hardware store and spend countless hours building it. In the end, when we saw the result, we knew we had something very special in our hands.

I’m asking you guys at Full Tilt for a pair of boots because I feel that your company is all about that vibe, providing high performance equipment while not taking yourself too seriously. The picture shows the boot after 8 months straight of partying, Full Tilt’s very own Andy Parry at the IF3 while claiming his prize for the Line Traveling Circus and myself drinking from it.

Wannabe Boots Get An Upgrade

Aiden Parece got these boots for $5 at a ski swap, then attempted to make them appear like Full Tilts. Unfortunately they still looked like wannabes and felt like it too. Now that we’re sending him the real deal, Aiden won’t have to deal with shinbang any more! Check out his entry below!

“Here’s the “A” to the “Q” you’ve been asking; no I didn’t get them from my parents, I purposely bought these at a ski swap for $5. i bought them because once covered with pants, they look like FT’s, of course, being old and crappy, i get gnarly shinbang and bruises on every single toe. Q: what are the cuts in the tongue for? A: My attempt at modding them so that they could flex more. i wanted full tilts but i can’t afford them, so i settled for these, by painting the tongue and writing “FT” on the side, i hoped they would look like last years hot doggers, but that obviously didn’t work. I ride park everyday and am at 53 days so far this season. i can’t continue hitting 50′ and 60′ foot jumps with all this pain. Full Tilts are my dream! and i would loving to have a pair, i think it would be the best for my performance and progression in the park.”

TGR did a great thing hooking up some of their athletes with video iPhones so they can do real time updates of what they do all winter. It’s not an epic edit, chopped up and released months after it actually happened but raw, live (almost) accounts of the places Seth is, people he’s with and gnar he’s skiing.
