March in Whistler is typically nothing short of pow, pow, pow and more pow, but this winter wasn't so typical. The crew chased after it hard this month, hitting a number of jump spots, urban locations and lapped the always enjoyable Whistler Blackcomb blue and grey park lines.
Proudly presented by Boardworld, this series showcases epic snowboarding in the parks, streets and backcountry of the Whistler area.

Into the Thicket chronicles the journey of a few skateboarders' treck into the forests of Vancouver Island to skate a ramp constructed using the surrounding environment and few other materials. Staring Chris Haslam.
Filming for the Nike Block Surf Series last year in France and Spain, we filmed this segment with one of the locals from the Sopelana Surf Club, Txaber Gaminde. Txaber was such a cool guy and took us over to his local in Algorta, which just happened to be one of the raddest skate parks we've seen. Unfortunately the skate section didnt see the light of the day in the clips, with Nike only wanting to feature surfing in the final clips... So with the project wrapped up, it was a shame to leave this on the editing room floor! Enjoy, and go visit.... Such an awesome part of the world!
