Just watch it. This cat bought a rail from us 2 years ago and has progressed faster than your sister turns tricks at the corner.
He’s from Naperville, IL. Never heard of it? Me either. But now it’s on the fuckin map.
Ben Lang is one of the nicest dudes around. He may compliment you on your terrible fashion sense or tell your girlfriend she looks “merely OK” in that dress, but when it comes to rails and ledges, he fuckin slaps the shit out of them like they stole his Hot Pocket. So take a minute and wonder how he makes it all look so easy. This cat progresses so fast and I’d be in a year he’s on Kink, or at least getting Kinky with that girlfriend of yours. Enjoy.
Ben Lang is a crazy street dawg and his newest edit reminds me of the classic BMX film “Can I Eat” from Animal BMX. Be sure to follow his almost daily updates on his Instagram @benlang603. You will not be disappoined.
We get a lot of videos from people asking to be sponsored. Skiers, snowboarders, scooter kids, skateboarders, BMX cats, rollerbladers, fisherman, porn stars, fat people and coke dealers. I hate saying no (especially to the coke dealers), but in reality most of the people on our team are just our homies and good friends. Don’t be discouraged, because we still love watching silly videos. So keep sending em. We love terrible sponsor me videos so much, we made our own.

No Jerry’s were harmed in the making of this video.
OK, so there are no tacos. But he broke his middle finger flipping off an elderly woman and hes on his way to vacation in a Mexican prison. The only way the cartels will allow him to return to the USA and snowboard again is for you to watch this video. Do the right thing!
Aiden has been on the Gnarbear snowboarding team for 3 years or something. We can barely remember a time without him. But for real he did kind of mess himself up a little and end his season short. But with the right amount of tacos, vitamin C and virgin margaritas he will be back and tossing switch 1080s. Even with a shortened winter season he managed to stack this video with more tricks than your Mom turned last night. So sit back, relax and enjoy!
Well he’s the OG snowboarder on our team: his name is Aiden Chmura. I sent him a set of questions so you could get to know him better. Be sure to follow his unusually rad life on Instagram @aidenchmura.
Well I had to deliver a few 12 foot ski boxes for the terrain park at Hard’ack ski area in northern Vermont so it made sense to head on over to Stowe Mountain Resort to meet up with a couple of cats from the snowboard team. My homie from college Matt Thoman tagged along with his fancy camera setup to snag some dope pics. It was almost 50 degrees out, the snow was amazing and it was a raddddd day!
Both Riley Peterson and Cooper Provencher were riding in the USASA slopestyle competition and both threw down hard securing 1st place in their age groups. After the comp we all met up and tooled around in the parks for a while and snapped some steezy pics in the new Gnarbear worker Jacket.
Coop just turned 10 years old but somehow extracts style out of every trick he does. It’s something to see for sure. Most kids these days are trying to outdo one another with numbers of spins and crazy switchup robot ballerina type tricks while Coop just bones out grabs and makes even the basic method look steezy AF!
Riley is just a goddam animal. He just goes big and makes everything look easy. We were discussing some tricks him and Coop could do in Tandem and he was like “how about I do a massive flip over him while he eurocarves hard on the landing?” And it was so. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. A split second later and Coop would have surely been landed on. Coop layed it down while Riley layed it out… both about as far as possible.

I did a few mediocre tricks for the camera, but the focus wasn’t on me. With the talent from Riley and Cooper on tap, there was no need. Overall the day was amazing and I can’t wait to get back to Stowe and shred with them again.

We bought a bear suit! Yep. Had to be done. The awesome staff at Attitash Mountain Resort were nice enough to hook us up with some tickets and we did some filming on, you guessed it, Bear Peak.
It was a sunny above freezing day following a good couple days of snow, so the conditions couldn’t have been better. Myself (Stevo), Dirty Dan and Johnny Wyman set out to do goonish things (while keeping it clean, of course). Tom, the director of marketing took a moment to remind us that Attitash is a family resort. We’re usually pretty good about that, right?
How hard is it to ride in the bear suit? Well it took a few runs to get used to it and keep the head from flopping around. During spins greater than 180 the head flops down over my goggles and all landings become completely blind. This isn’t too say it wasn’t a blast, because it sure was! The thing that helped keep me dry and keep the suit in place the most was my Gnarbear Worker Jacket. These are so rad and you should order one as soon as you can!
Anyhow, the video that follows is full of mediocre snowboarding and skiing tricks and ridiculous antics. The oddest part of the day, however, was a father standing directly in front of me pointing and telling his daughter “do you see the bear, honey?” He didn’t even attempt eye contact with me. It was as if I was a bear caged in the zoo and he was showing his daughter. If only that was on film… Anyhow the terrain park on Bear Peak was on point and we had a blast! We can’t wait to get back over to Attitash.
Aiden left us to go out West for the season to train. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t leave his mark on the East. Check out his newest edit. Some of it was from his summer in New Zealand. It may seem like cheating, but he was just smart enough to get a jump on the season. We were definitely jealous while soaking up the sun in the Northern Hemisphere. Most of the clips are Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont. It’s home of the best damned glades skiing in the East, and the crew over there kills the park game. If you get a chance, get up there. Or don’t, and leave the goods for us.
Aiden is 15 years old, from Stowe, VT and rides for Gnarbear, Powe. Snowboards, Turt Gang and Zeal Optics.
