Every R&D objectives were met which makes us thrilled and we know you will be too! So for anyone browsing our website hoping to buy a snowskate; patience my friends, only a few weeks to go!

As usual we will be putting a completely new lineup for boards for next season around September. Until then have a great time guys and thanks for all your great support throughout the years!
Yep, well as you've probably noticed our online shop's stock has been depleted with the holidays. Great news is that we were able to atleast get a few extra boards up for sale, in the all-star red and gold colorways. Jump on them while they last, because we only have a very limited amount left!
As another year came, another team trip had begun. Kalamazoo, MI was once again the destination for most of our team riders. Unfortunately, Josh Seguin couldn't make it this year, so who would write these epic blog posts describing our adventures? I figured I could take it upon myself to document it with less writing, and more filming.
When we woke up the first morning in Michigan (after a 17 hour drive for us, a little less for others riders), I had this idea of filming more about the lifestyle of the team and it ended up being a "day in the life" kind of video with the whole crew. Therefore, don't expect to see a lot of snowskating in this, the tricks will obviously be kept for the next full length video. This edit is about what goes on before and after the tricks. I randomly selected Day 1 of the trip to be documented, which wasn't a bad idea. Before showing you this silly video, let me explain what this day was all about.
After the team had gotten up and dressed, we headed to a cafe downtown for breakfast. We visit this same cafe every year because of their stunning service and awesome greasy grub. An hour later, we crossed the street to warm up at the courthouse spot, where everyone can find something to have fun with, whether it be rails, ledges, gaps, or good flat ground. A guy called "the sheriff" kicked us out pretty quickly, so we moved n to the infamous stage gap, where we were also greeted with a kick-out. So, we tried another spot, a beautiful little double set and another 9-stair after to create he perfect line. However, upon getting out of the car to check the spot, an old lady had told us that skateboarding was forbidden. We explained that we were not skateboarding, but she didn't seem to recognize the difference.
After 3 kick-outs in a row, we got back home to dry off and eat some lunch. Since filming tricks didn't really go as planed, we decided to just go bomb hills at a school down the street. People started doing crazy flip tricks into the hill. I can't count how many tricks went down, but from switch bs heel to fs flip, from 360 flip to switch varial heel, I think pretty much every flip variation had been done. I was having too much fun and only managed to film a couple of Roby's maneuvers.
The night that followed could be defined as: grabbing some subs for dinner, having a beer at the house, and then walking to a bar just a few blocks down the street for the Kalamazoo skateboard film premier of "Dirty Waters". This video was actually filmed and edited by Dave Engerer, and everyone was super stoked on it. After the bar, some of the folks even went to ride a crazy hill covered in a foot of fresh powder, and did not return 'til their shoes were completely soaked, which was at about 5AM.
So much stuff happened and we couldn't film 100% of the time, but we still managed to document some shenanagans. I guess you could say this was a regular day in the life with the Ambition Team, I hope you'll enjoy this video, 'cause I sure had fun making it!
