Harry Kearney : Exceptionally fast human being.

If it wasn’t enough to have already won the Dirksen Derby this season (watch the rad video below), Harry Kearney just upped the ante for the season and won the toughest of the tough, the one, the only – Legendary Baker Banked Slalom.

Harry was up against some of the best in professional snowboarding – Gigi Rüf, Josh Dirksen, Temple Cummins, Terje, Lucas Debari and Scotty Wittlake to name just a wee bit of the talent.

Harry’s time of 1:43.35 would place him in the winner’s circle.

Here he is post comp with his bro Hagen and Rob Kingwill who got 2nd in the fakie race to none other than Terje and designed this year’s contest poster. Congrats, Harry! Keep sliding sideways fast. Real damn fast.

Search For A Cool Place.

With the lifts about to fire up from North Korea to North Carolina (A Basin and the Palmer Snowfield are open!) we decided to stoke the fire with some radness. First up, from the Pacific Northwest is “Search for a cool place” with Mark Landvik, Patrick McCarthy, Ryland Bell, and our boy, Harry Kearney. Search for a Cool Place is an exploration of snowboarding, mind-expansion, adrenaline freaks, the trips they take and where they’ve ended up.

The uber radness from Washington state continues with the Go! Boarding crue. Harry Kearney links up with the boyz to get down and get radical. Winter is almost here. Let’s do this.

Kevin Jones – Back in The Day.

A rare breed of human, Kevin Jones, has forever altered the snowboard landscape with the limitless freestyle trajectory he has brought to big mountain exploration. In short, Kevin Jones is a boss. We are forever grateful for his early involvement in Compatriot Snowboards. Here’s a rad Standard Films clip from Kevin a couple years back. He’s probably out fly fishing somewhere right now, so enjoy these old clips until the snow starts flying again.

Moments of stoke with Rob Kingwill.

It’s the little things in snowboarding – like riding waist deep powder. Here Kinger brings the stoke with 30 seconds of radness from Jackson Hole. Winter ain’t over yet.

Kinger drops a Mercedes Ad?!?!?

“The following video was made with professionals on a closed course. It is dangerous and should not be attempted,” states this Compatriot Snowboards, err, Mercedes commercial? Watch Rob Kingwill get barreled, throw methods, slashes, all on his Valkyrie 158, all in a Mercedes Commercial?

Heck yeah, Rob. Get some. Everybody go out and shred. And get some.

powder dreams

Is it winter yet? In this episode of The Kingdom, Mr. Rob Kingwill and Mr. Mike Basich get down in a rad edit from tailgate Alaska.

first tracks with rob kingwill.

Kinger is ready for Jackson Hole opening day. Frankenstorm is about to drop 6 foot on West Virginia?!? Tahoe got a 3 foot dump and Squaw Valley opened for a total of 4 hours last thursday. 4 resorts are open across North America, a ton more in Europe and I think 1 is still holding on in the southern hemisphere (New Zealand). Are you ready to shred? Well, Rob Kingwill isn’t waiting anymore. We’ve got the evidence below.

Dos Hombres : With Kevin Jones

Kevin Jones rides damned hard and has for years. His new part in “Dos Hombres” is testament to that. Thanks for keeping up inspired, Kevin. Checkout KJ’s board this year by clicking here.

bring your snorkel

Kinger presents The Kingdom: Into the Whiteroom. Kinger, Kyle Clancy and Van Lanin bring their snorkels to Jackson Hole and reap the rewards. Rob is riding in the Commissioner 169 and you should too when mother nature brings you nipple deep powder.

Rob Kingwill snowboarded over 300 days last year. Get out and get some. Ruling it as always.

80 inches in 8 days!

It’s been dumping in Jackson Hole in case you have been sleeping under a rock. Haven’t had a face shot of pow this week? Haven’t had 40 to 50 or so like, Rob Kingwill? Well, you better watch the video above then and start planning your trip to Jackson Hole, or somewhere in the Northwest as low tide persists elsewhere.
