Five Ways To Slay is our freestyle arsenal of board and binding setups, each with its own capacity for carnage whether you're riding the park, pipe, pow jumps or back alleys. Tested, approved, and backed by our team – Jed Anderson, Chris Grenier, Bode Merrill, Louif Paradis, Wolle Nyvelt, Taka Nakai, and Jamie Nicholls, this is 5 Ways to Slay.
Last winter I spent a good amount of time in Stockholm, Sweden. I brought my camera and was B angle for Justin Meyer who was shooting Videograss Shoot the Moon and for Absinthe 12. It was one of the more fun trips I've been on because there is so much to do in Stockholm and also so much to look at. About half of the day seems like a sunset or sunrise and there are beautiful women everywhere you look. It's a pretty awesome place. This is a long one, but really, the last 4 or 5 minutes are just a bunch of unedited, unused footage. This is my trip timeline from Stockholm that has not been edited since I was on the trip back in January of this 2011. I hope you enjoy.
