1. Carve Oddity is a collection of favourite moments from the 16/17 season – including, but not limited to – riding deep powder in the forests of Japan, going on weekend mini-missions to find new zones at tiny Swiss resorts, slashing chunky slush in the halfpipe and wave-park up in LAAX, and finding surprisingly good powder in the Engadin valley late in the season. Despite difficult snow conditions we managed to have a whole lot of fun doing what we enjoy most: simply snowboarding.

  2. After having spent too much time at trade shows we started growing restless and felt the urge for exploration take over. With no specific plan or agenda we embarked on a trip to Japan, leaving behind all expectations and letting local friends as well as our own curiosities guide our way to the goods. Travelling with that kind of mindset opens doors to new experiences and leaves room for spontaneity. Each day we saw new places, had different adventures, met kind and welcoming people, and enjoyed plenty of powder.

  3. The help and support of friends is crucial in a project like KORUA Shapes. As a thank you, we organized a weekend camping adventure on a mountain pass that lies only minutes from some of Europe's best resorts. Most guys showed up in camper vans, others simply planned to crash in the front seat of their cars. The idea was to spend some quality time in good company, enjoy a couple of beers, test out some new shapes and have as much fun as possible, all while filming a new edit along the way. Using the excuse of having to gather more footage, we ended up doing several more of these trips throughout the spring.

  4. We are happy to present you the next Volume of our series YEARNING FOR TURNING today!

    Avoiding the crowds in the big resorts and western influence, we tried to find those hidden gems were the true Japanese mountain spirit can still be found and experienced. Japan had a extraordinary winter last year and so did we. Arigato!

  5. Here it is! Volume 2 of our series YEARNING FOR TURNING. With "Carving Europe" we wanted to portrait a style of riding that is very familiar to most of us. Having a blast with friends, riding the local resort and making the best of it. We went on three short trips with our campers, also known as car danchis, to try and capture the magic moments on and off the slope.
