Women’s Reader’s Choice Presented by Toyota: Anna Gasser—TransWorld Snowboarding Riders’ Poll 19

Women’s Reader’s Choice: Anna Gasser

Anna Gasser had the season of a lifetime, landing on nearly every major podium the world over, and it seems that the audience took notice, as evidenced by her win in the Women’s Reader’s Choice category. This award recognizes pro snowboarders who have broken down the barriers of our little sub-culture and burst out onto a mainstream stage across the globe, and Anna’s just getting started. With the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang right around the corner, she’s a surefire favorite to medal and if that happens, Anna is going to go from pro snowboarder to full-on celebrity, blanketing magazines and televisions all over the world, and we can’t wait to tag along for the ride.

About Riders’ Poll: For 19 years, TransWorld SNOWboarding has polled the professional snowboarding community to find their picks for the best riders of the year. Each season, these awards are decided by the opinions of over 100 pros. While TransWorld SNOWboarding hosts the awards, the winners are truly a reflection of peer acknowledgement—the highest honor any rider can receive.

Red Gerard – Arcadia Full Part – 48 Hour Exclusive

Enjoy the 48-hour exclusive leak of Red Gerards’s full part from TransWorld SNOWboarding’s latest movie Arcadia.


You might know Red Gerard from his competitive success, especially with the buzz centered around him and the group of up-and-comers looking to make a statement in the 2018 Winter Olympics, but this kid is by no means just hucking it for the hardware. Taking his monochromatic outfit and dynamic riding to the backcountry, Red found gold this past season filming in Montana, Tahoe and Aspen, without any judges in site. In-between watching his drops as he vies for a spot on the Olympic squad, enjoy his sophomore part with TransWorld SNOWboarding, and keep an eye out for whatever he does next.

With Arcadia, Victor de Le Rue has officially gone back-to-back-to-back with standout parts in the past three TransWorld movies. That alone speaks to the level of riding above. The experience and talent that Victor brings to the crew is easily seen on screen as the 28-year-old Frenchman delivers once again, a mind-blowing part complete with

With the addition of Eric Jackson, The Manboys did the unthinkable, which was step up the level of their riding again. The Catan loving, Whistler-based crew featuring Matt Belzile, Rusty Ockenden, Chris Rasman, Jody Wachniak, and Eric Jackson keep it full throttle from the start, which is probably why their full part from our latest endeavor, Arcadia, is so good. Don’t believe us? See if you can take your eyes off the screen after Belzile’s cab 900… Yeah, that is what we thought.

Pro Setups: Manboys Head-to-Toe 2017-2018 Gear

Rusty Ockenden

Birthday: April 8, 1986

Home Mountain: Whistler/Blackcomb

Stance: Goofy

Board: Endeavor Maverick 165

Boots: Adidas Boost

Bindings: Burton Cartel EST

Jacket: Oakley Silver Fox Biozone Jacket

Hoodie: Oakley Factory Pilot

Pants: Oakley Whiteroom Biozone Pant

Hats: Usually don’t fit

Mitts: Oakley Roundhouse Mitt

Base Layers: 10 year old Foursquare stuff

Goggles: Oakley Line Miners with Prizm lense

Sunglasses: Oakley Latch Prizm

Socks: Burton socks that I stole from Mark Sollors. Lots of holes in them, need to steal more.

What’s your favorite piece of gear and why?

Other than the essentials – an Airhole. I feel naked without my face covered. Also, I really don’t like sunscreen because it’s just smearing chemicals on your face… So I will use it for sun as well as cold, pretty key for me!

What gear trend do you see in snowboarding that you’d like to fade out?

Trends come and go, I have no problem with any of ’em. People can do what they want, and if everyone looked the same, that wouldn’t be fun would it? I have noticed a lot of Carhartt gear on kids who definitely do not look like carpenters though. Ha ha

Has living in Whistler affected your gear in any way?

Yeah, for sure. It has made me enjoy functionality of the gear I wear. I ride in stormy powder for most of the season, so I enjoy being warm and dry.

Any other comments about your gear you’d like our readers to know?

Yeah, I just would suggest trying a bigger snowboard. I stepped up from a 160 to a 165 this year and it’s super fun. (speaking to the jumper / free rider / powder rider)

Oakley, Endeavor Snowboards, Airhole, Whistler/Blackcomb, The Manboys, and shout out to Drink Water for having a backbone and sometimes giving me a free sticker.

Stance: 22.5″ F:18 B:-12

Board: K2 Bottle Rocket

Boots: K2 Maysis

Bindings: K2 Lien AT

Jacket: 686 GLCR Gore Tex Weapons jacket

Hoodie: 686 knockout bonded fleece

Facemask: Airhole Merino Balaclava

Mitts: 686 Gore Tex Ghost Mitt

Base Layers: 686 Frontier base layer

Goggles: Smith I/Os

Sunglasses: Smith Marvine

Socks: Stance

What’s your favorite piece of gear and why?

It’s hard to choose just one piece, but I will say that I love the GLCR Gore Tex line because it keeps me warm and dry so that I can stay out as long as I want.

What gear trend do you see in snowboarding that you’d like to fade out?

To be honest, I’m down with all the trends… some might not be for me but I think it keeps it interesting and fresh.

Any other comments about your gear you’d like our readers to know?

Only that I think it’s worth buying the good stuff, I always say “buy it nice or buy it twice” and I think that’s true when it comes to snowboard gear.

Mitts: Celtek Radar Mitten

Base Layers: Saxx Underwear Black Sheep

Goggles: Spy Optic Ace

Sunglasses: Spy Optic Beachwood

Socks: Stance Merino Wool Snow Socks

What’s your favorite piece of gear and why?

Thats a tough one. I’m kind of a nerd with all my gear. My friends always bug me about how into the product tech I am. I love my Spy goggle lens options, though. I feel weird traveling anywhere without at least 2 pairs on me, and like 3 lenses for each. That and my snowmobile.

What gear trend do you see in snowboarding that you’d like to fade out?

Little beanies worn super high on your head where they only cover half your ears and almost cover your eyebrows. I really don’t get it, especially on a cold day. I guess I am just old.

Any other comments about your gear you’d like our readers to know? 

I don’t like to promote gear that I wouldn’t actually purchase myself, and with that said I am really proud of all the gear I wear. I honestly believe Lib Tech is one of the best board riding companies out there. Coolest people working for them and running the show. Plus, they make the worlds best snowboards, and damn amazing surfboards and skateboards too.

What’s your favorite piece of gear and why?

The board! I mean that shits important. Or maybe gear, I hate being wet and cold, being dry is super dope.

What gear trend do you see in snowboarding that you’d like to fade out?

Nowadays, I’m pretty down for anything, seriously what ever floats your boat! Do you, it’s 2017.

Any other comments about your gear you’d like our readers to know?

Wax your board bro, speeds tight.

ALL IN—An Explanation of Halldor Helgason

From cover to ender and everything in between with Halldor Helgason. Originally ran in TransWorld’s Oct. 2017 print issue.

The post ALL IN—An Explanation of Halldor Helgason appeared first on TransWorld SNOWboarding.

Halldor Helgason – Arcadia Full Part

We don’t want to spoil the ender, but Halldor Helgason‘s full part in Arcadia is just too good. Online for 48 hours only, enjoy this exclusive online stream of one of the best snowboarding parts in the last decade. Complete with street, backcountry, park, technical riding, and just balls-to-the-wall massive hits, Halldor’s ender embodies the man strapped in on screen. He is the personification of a metal song sliding sideways, and is still one of the most humble and friendly characters we have ever met.

His motivation this year, besides just his absolute love for snowboarding, was the 10-shot rule. Every ten clips he got for his part, whether it was a hammer, crash, or both, he would allow himself to party and get blackout drunk. If you add all the shots up in his six minute part, it is easy to see that he threw a lot more back than just insane upside-down methods (we still aren’t sure what to call them). When you are done watching his full part, check out the interview with Halldor to see what all went in to making his latest video piece that will most definitely go down in the history books marking a rider that is not just pushing the whole culture of snowboarding when it is in great need to be pushed, but is doing it amongst a class of his own.
