Peter Brings the Shadow to Life
from predatory bird
The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay – yhoo.it/IBn2mK – which contains paragraphs such as, “It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy…no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life.” Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
Filmed in Paris.

Music: “Geometría del Universo” by Colleen
Skateboarding, art, music and snowboarding intertwine in the timeless, weird and wonderful world of Jamie Lynn. Jamie opened a door to a universe of art and inspiration when he took everything he dreamt of doing on a skateboard and applied it to snowboarding. Jamie rides and lives life on his terms and is one of the most authentic, soulful people you could ever hope to meet. The fact that Jamie has ridden for Lib Tech, Volcom, Vans and Dragon for over two decades speaks volumes on his integrity and loyalty to those who have supported him through thick and thin.
Jamie’s interview for Snowboard Magazine Issue 11.4, The Timeless Issue was as unconventional as the 41-year-old Auburn, Washington native himself. We were all over the place — from Seattle skate spots, to impromptu parking lot jam sessions, and a nature walk at his compound where we watched salmon spawn. In that space I felt free of “civilian life” responsibilities and had a taste of how this iconic human maximizes his days. To Jamie, time was irrelevant. Life, on the other hand, is another story.

Arbor Skateboards :: Alicia Fillback
Washington native Alicia Fillback clocks fly time and gnar points every single day. As one of the hardest working females in downhill skateboarding she’s refined a freeride style all her own that mixes technical sliding, power, and a level head when stakes are high. Typically used to riding her Backlash 37 on the urban landscapes of Portland and San Francisco, this time she tackles the big mountains of Southern California.
