Eixi a.k.a. Robert Eixenberger paddled with his kayak from Schliersee to the Black Sea. In his equipment: Several video cameras and a drone. For five weeks, the cameras were his only witnesses on this adventurous journey from the Schlierach via the Mangfall, Inn and finally the Danube to just before the Black Sea - over 2000 kilometres, alone by kayak. And obviously geared up with Pally'Hi Merino.
This entire family has a different approach to the boards’ tech specs matching the riders bio specs. It’s not a conventional product line, where you find one board in 3 lengths and widths! It’s a line where you find several different models, in one length each – and I’m confident you’ll find a geometry to add to your quiver as well. At least one !!!
Ski planes, sleds, big mountains, skis/snowboards. What's not to like? We had more tricky conditions this year, but we certainly made the best of it.
With snow falling across North America and the pre-season stoke in full swing, I figured it was time to get last spring's edit done...

BAIKAL - THE MOVIE

Siberia has something magical, you can only catch it by living it. Here is Gwen's and Ana's adventures, travelling to Baikal. A trip created by simple but impressive elements: Perfect powder, a frozen lake, a tiny cabin, a train ride and amazing local people.
When photographer Hansi Heckmair returned from his latest trip to the Faroer Islands, he was speechless. Was it the weather, the solitude, the light, the people (is in "no people")? We had to look up the www, and what we found is quite simple, and can be put down in 20 points...

RIDING JAPOW

We have shipped a Test Pilot Board to Boris Anthony, who is currently spending the winter in Japan. Next to very constructive inputs he has sent us this little clip. Attention: If you didn't get to ride pow in a winter wonderland this season - you'd better not watch this, as it might be too beautiful!

THE SEASON'S DEEPEST

It’s very simple: This was the deepest day of the season! Watch Amplid founder Peter Bauer and teamrider Stewart Orr, snorkeling through serious pow. Big shout out to BK (www.mediaproductionbk.com) for filming in such damp and cold conditions and the excellent editing job. And to Pez at Hochkeil Resort for switching on the lifts, only for us.
Fjord Lines is a web series about splitboarding in Norway´s most spectacular mountain ranges. In this series snowboarder and Native Adventures guide Tron Dyb shares some of his adventurous days in the mountains with riding of both unnamed and classic lines around Norway.
Catboarding in Georgia is an absolute must. Georgia, the country on the Black Sea, nestled between the Greater and Lesser Caucasus Mountains, gets heavy snowfalls every winter and is still quite undeveloped except for a few areas. We first developed Bakhmaro with our partner and last season moved on to a completely new region behind Bakhmaro's mountains, Adcharia. We found perfect free freeride terrain, perfect for catskiing, in a cosy little mountain hut with an unforgettable panoramic view.

BOARD MEETING

There are days (=and snow conditions) when you simply have to turn off your computer, cancel your meetings and go out for a ride. Nothing beats a good day out in the pow with the crew you work with. Two days ago was one of those days, with 40 cm of fresh and no other tracks except ours.
In snowboarding you have park kids, groomer fans, sidecountry riders, backcountry shredders, and "only a few" guys like Lauri Hilander (=yes, that is his real name!) from Finland, who have higher aims. Higher as in "above 8.000m". Follow Lauri during his prepping phase to splitboard up to Cho Oyu - and obvously ride it down along the tibetian side. Really cool and mellow vlog, reflecting Lauri's personality a 100%.
Amplid have, for most of their 15-year history, catered to those with more refined tastes. To those who value the finer things in life. To those who don’t simply equate good value to low-cost. They are, to an extent, the connoisseur’s choice of snowboards. But who says you need to be a world-class sommelier to get completely shit faced off a bottle of Chateau Lafite...
Amplid's "Between the Lines" wants to shed light onto the unknown stories happening in the backstage area of our snowboard life. What does it take to run a snowboard company? RnD to get the product right is one important task. Marketing as in "getting emotion into the brand" is another one. But one of the most important job is "sales". Have a look at this episode and listen to Amplid's "Big Wig of Sales" Gregor Common...
Renowned outdoor photographer Roman Königshofer's website starts like this: I live and breathe what I shoot and want the viewers of my work to emotionally connect to this vision, take them on a journey and inspire them to seek adventure for themselves. Authenticity is key in my life and work.

How would the outdoor world be without photos and videos, stimulating our day dreams and catering food for our neverending hunger for freedom. But who is taking those images? What kind of people are on the other side of the lens? How is their everyday job routine? What equipment does it require to get those beautiful shots?
May 29th, 2020. First day resort riding after the lockdown, and that with one foot of fresh powder. Kind of a historical day for some of us. Is the border open? How many people are allowed per gondola? Do we need a mask? Will lunch be served inside the restaurant? Many open questions…
If you are planning to be "on the road" for a year and want to be prepared for all weather conditions and activities, putting together the wardrobe is not so easy, especially when the storage space in the camper is very limited. We soon realized that we primarily wanted to use merino, especially since we can't wash all the time.
