The best of the beast, mountainboard videos from around the globe. Some old, some new and some that probably shouldn’t have been posted in the first place. Take note of the style from country to country some dirty action in these.
England – Ye Olde British Cunts
You know all these guys and you’ve probably seen all of these edits as well. That’s because they’re kings, straight royalty on the mountainsticks.

France – J’ai un escargot dans mon oreille
Maybe you aren’t aware of this but the French rip, and I include Dutch friend Nicky Geerse in this group because he speaks French better than he does Dutch.

Russia – I like my borscht without the beets
I just spent a week in Moscow where it was -20 degrees for 6 days straight, not exactly a hospitable climate; especially not for mountainboarding. Despite the long winters Russia has well funded events(thanks to Tunetz), super good riders and a communist government.

Australia – Sheep shaggers in my book
The bastard children of the United Kingdom and savage beasts. Watch the gymnast do a double backflip! Dyl Radface had a seizure while eating a big mac this past summer and my girlfriend thinks he’s got Aspergers syndrome.

USA – McDonalds & Walmart now open in South Pole, Antarctica
We take claim to the creation of the sport. We sell you boards. Occasionally ride them. Mostly we just put a lot of time and money into shooting video of it. Are tricks aren’t the best but we have way more fun than everyone else. Truth.

Spain – Pelea de gallo o lidia
I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about Spain, nor do I know of many Spanish riders but I do know Iguria park looks like an amazing place to ride. Check out the Facebook video.

Japan – Have you seen Blood Sport??
I don’t know what flows through the water in Japan but no matter what board sport it is the Japenese seem to have the best style.

Brazil – I think there are more super models per capita in Brazil than any where else in the world
These guys have been riding hard for a long time and possibly the most passionate about it, I mean you’ve probably heard of Tony Dogga right?

Germany – Hmmmmm
I almost forgot about the Germans, never forget the German’s they’ll fuck you up. How could I forget Winterberg possibly the gnarliest park in mountainboarding. If you never saw that video of TK doing front 7′s over their massive 40 foot jump its worth searching for.
