Coming at ya hot, an electrifying vortex of paper and ink, Issue 19.3 is out and high-speed flying into the shop nearest you!
We are throttling into full-on winter across the northern hemisphere and we’d wager this here issue is the fix you need to push the hype into 4th gear. This one is absolutely packed and we are psyched to explore some new territory within.
Inside 19.3 we take a privileged trip with Chris Gallardo, ex-pro ripper, founder of Backcountry.com and accomplished Sierra explorer, to a sacred place of turquoise pools and unlimited good times. It’s the famed Fountain of Youth, and we’ve got a view into the place like never before. We also discuss and dive into a few of the year’s raddest video projects, with interviews featuring Alek Oestreng and Void, Tommy Gesme and Blender, and Lou Staub, the man behind the Escape Video.
We expand the scope of our coverage inside 19.3, taking a closer look at the burgeoning para snowboarding scene through a discussion with the ultimate homie, the Labatt Blue Bomber, Mr. John Leslie. I hope this piece helps to bring the entire board world a bit closer together. Rounding out the features, we’ve got a superbly-creepy tale courtesy of E-Stone and the insane assortment of young guns in the Beta movie. Sleep with one eye open!
For a special Production Values, we speak with the ladies of the Uninvited about the hottest question in the board world, and an extended version of this piece will be published on MethodMag.com next week. We gawk at an incomprehensible method from Harrison Gordon, take a walk back to the mental East Coast Blizzards of 2015 with Kealan Shilling, admire the Jewel of the Alps with photographer and part-time voice actor Theo Acworth, and keep it loose with Jed Sky, Artem Smolin, Dimi Shubin, Anton Stennabb, Sparrow Knox and more.
Closing out the issue is our Outwear and Accessories Guide, prime for rounding out the kit or your last minute gift-giving. It’s go time y’all! GET OUT THERE AND GIV’ER!
