team talks - episode 1

With some of the most random interviews you’ll ever hear and a few too many encounters with the police, you will be right there with us witnessing what a week out with the team looks like.

In the first episode of Northwave Team Talks, AJ and the team travel to the Czech Republic for one of the most unique experience in the snowboarding world. They spend one week at Wena’s Backyard and the surrounding areas, where the Simpson brothers and the women’s team are filming for “Tao of Beginnings”, a video focused on the first unisex board in the Drake quiver.

team talks - episode 2

Jason and AJ are joined by Evan Ridell, local young buck, to shred the streets, while Kael is fresh of an abdominal injury and is forced to sit in the bench for the first part of the week, until he opens all the chakras and goes beast mode for the last days of the trip.

In this episode we fly to Canada where we meet up with Kael Hill and Jason Anderson, for an intense week hunting for spots in the plentiful Calgary, with very little snow but also with the best guide for when conditions are dry. When Kael’s around, everything is a spot.
