RIDER: Will Jackways

Will Jackways snags his second consecutive cover; it’s our biggest ever issue at 178 pages, and marks 15 years in publication. Will also appears in “Essence”, along with Jake Koia, and Heikki Sorsa, Nick Brown shows us a backside 720 in “Trick Tip”, “Holler” is about inspiration, and “The Classics” is a look at historic videos. “15 Yeahs” looks back at our own publishing history, and “The Reunion” gets a few pioneers together again. Will Jackways is back for a second “Trick Tip”, jumping over the catty, and Chris Garside brings us “Nice and Landed”. Tim Pierce shows what went down late season in “October Sesh”. The first “Interview” is with Nick Brown, and a second one sits down with big mountain rider Mark Landvik. “Gallery” includes Quentin Robbins, Heath Patterson, Logan Black, Callie Conaghan, Mitch Brown, Neville Lapwood, Joeseph MacKenzie, Frederick Kalbermatten, Jussi Oksanen, Louis Purucker, Roland Morley-Brown, and Jonte Edvardson. The “08 Buyer’s Guide” is followed by a snowboard “Design Forum”, and six contest reviews. Dylan Butt and PE “Escape to Black Peak”, and “Inside” takes a good look at snowmaking in New Zealand. “Spot Check” goes to Chile, “No Limits” goes kiteboarding, and “On The Job” catches up with Stephen Scott who is now a heli pilot. Ben Stewart and Spencer Falls both get a “Fast Forward”.
