This episode is for all the beautiful ladies out there(queue the crickets) who like pretty boys who mountainboard. In this episode more than half of the guys ride without shirts and rocking short shorts and it’s fucking gnarly. Winterberg is consistently building jumps and drops that are pushing the limits of mountainboarding, check out the old Winterberg gap footage here if you don’t believe me. So i’m not surprised that fellas went there and absolutely destroyed the place.
I just want to start out by saying this took 2 months to put together, and it should have taken 45 minutes. The first attempt to do this interview with Dylan was foiled by my laptop battery running out of juice halfway through the interview. The second attempt had some viscous background noise that I didn’t hear until I started editing it. Then this version the audio was super quiet, so note for anyone planning to record a Google Hangout, make sure to test the audio or get microphones.
Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, here is a little interview with the Aussie Dylan Warren. Over the past 3 years he has sought out the endless summer, travelling between hemispheres with his mountainboard in tow to ride what ever the world puts in front of him. He’s got great style on and off his board and doesn’t give two fucks what you think. In the next 2 weeks he will be dropping his new video part “Summer Clip” and it will not disappoint. Dylan is the man, I’m jealous of the lifestyle he has been living, you should be too!
The first of the 3 part event series put on by Vertically Inclined Productions is going off June 15th at Valmont Bike Park in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. If you haven’t had the pleasure of riding Valmont, then you’re truly missing out as it’s well built freestyle bike parks in the country.
The park offers a wide variety of terrain, mostly for intermediate level riders and up, but the best features can be found in the Large & XL jump lines. Here you will find multiple north shore style wallrides, a wooden step up, a 15ft canon, and numerous jumps. This will be a great event to watch the pro and see all the unique styles of riding that can be shown at a park like this.
Here are some details that you need to know:
Valmont Bike Park 3160 Airport Rd
Boulder, Co 80301-2208
Registration is $45 and will include event entry, prizes and lunch from Wahoos Fish Tacos.
Registration & Practice – 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM.
Event Starts – 10:00 AM
Well this is the heaviest of all the episodes by far. Apparently if you want to learn double backflips in Europe you go to the Maddock’s Compound. There are just to many good tricks to talk about in this episode, so watch it!
There is nothing better than starting your day with a little bit of fresh squeezed mountainboard juice! Tour Lyfe Episode 3 is guaranteed to make your britches wet as you watch Andy corks some spins, Joe Dickson get upside down and weird and Dylan ride boards that were meant for children.
Here is the latest TOUR LYFE packed full with dirt thrashing featuring Tom & Mick Kirkman, Joe Dickson, Josh Maddocks, Theo Ackworth, John Burton, Ant Wilson, Andy Packer, Andy Milenkovic & Radfuck Warren.
Utah has a bunch of great spots to ride unfortunately I’ve only had the opportunity to ride things outside of Salt Lake City. There is a deep click of riders in SLC who are constantly out exploring. Check out this quick clip of bobsledding champion Mason Moore cranking some turns in Salt Lake. If you’re in the area be sure to get in touch with these guys, this spot looks hella crispy!
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.
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.
