Prepare to go wild, ski fans. Candide Thovex has just launched another mind blowing video, this time announcing his partnership with Audi Quattro. In the video, Candide exhibits his skills on two planks without a single snowflake in sight. What can’t the man do?
There’s no denying that Park City, Utah native Todd Ligare is a freak of nature on snow. The long-haired beast can do it all when it comes to shredding. On top of his young, decorated freeskiing career, Ligare has even captured a national championship in ski racing (which I think is pretty damn badass). Basically, you name it and Ligare will be the best at it. Enjoy his most recent creation, an edit dubbed Quick Dirty, above, and keep your eyes peeled for more hard-charging action from Todd as the season rolls on.
Since 2011, the Finnish group known as Real Skifi has scoured mother Earth on a quest to stomp unthinkable ski stunts on unique setups. With countless epic videos as proof, it’s safe to say that they have found great success in their travels. This week, the group released its latest piece, documenting a recent trip to the U.K. to one-up themselves yet again. Enjoy watching Ilkka Hannula, Verneri Hannula, Juho Kilkki, Janne Korpela and filmer Anton Geier dominate Britain’s dry slopes and indoor ski areas.
Last season, GoPro athletes Chris Benchetler and John Jackson ventured to the powder-filled land of Japan in search of 4K perfection. As any skier (or snowboarder) would expect, the duo was greeted with the deepest of deep, fluffy, Japanese goodness. For our entertainment, GoPro collected the video clips from the trip to create nearly fifteen minutes of jaw-dropping footage that’s available for you above. Do yourself a favor—kick your feet up and enjoy the show.

This fish lives that YOLO lifestyle.
Why do all animals hate the mailman so much? Dogs bark at mailmen, and now turkeys are chasing them. Regardless, it’s awesome and so is this video. Note: He has to carry around a stick!
The first thought that came into my mind after watching this was “how/why did someone end up ever trying to do this?” Like, who was playing around with magnets, then made a homemade top, put a piece of plastic down and starting trying to make things levitate? Trippy, man. Trippy.
