Jessica Kimura destroyed it last season and scooped up one of two covers of the fifth edition of Snowboard Canada Women's Annual in the process. Look for her parts in Peep Show's "Let's Make Better Mistakes Tomorrow" as well as Think Thank's "Right Brain, Left Brain" videos, plus an eight-page feature interview in Snowboard Canada Women's Annual. Enjoy this video edited together by Sean Genovese with a handful of her banger tricks culminating in the Switch Front Board that landed her the coveted spot as our cover girl.
Picking up where we left off...
After Jack Kerouac and The Beats came Ken Kesey and his Merry Band of Pranksters. Kesey was a best-selling author turned acid-freak, who was largely responsible for the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s. But, before Kesey and crew started frying the masses, they took a trip across the country in a 1938 International school bus. They dubbed the rig Further and their mission was simple: they were searching for a cool place. Just like us...
Search for a Cool Place is an exploration of snowboarding, mind-expansion, adrenaline freaks, the trips they take and where they've ended up. Look for the full-length snowboard flick next Fall.
Featuring: Mark Landvik, Patrick McCarthy, Wyatt Stasinos, Cory Stasinos, Nick Russell, Forrest Burki, Ryland Bell, Shaun McKay, Lucas Debari, Kael Martin, Alex Yoder, Blake Paul, Nick Dirks, Jake Olson Elm, Harry Kearny, Luke Thorington, Brendan Keenan, Jason Robinson, Ralph Backstrom and many more...

Some people wouldn't dare to wear white snowboarding pants. Although the color looks nice on at first, one chair lift ride up and your gonna already have issues to worry about.
Betty Rides has created a woman's pant called the PDX Punk Siouxsie Pant in White for $180.
1st suggestion: Woman rider's who like sitting on the deck with a hot coco (take precaution with hot coco near white pants) should give this color a go. White's super cute and will definitly have the boy's lookin.
2nd suggestion: Betty Rides also has them in a solid black color and grey as well. So if your a chick who's ready to get dirty but doesn't want the evidence to prove it, just put those skinny legs into the darker version and you'll be set to go.
Jamie Anderson throws down an impressive video segment in "Paint It Gold" from Tall Teez. Her almost perfect 2011 season has put her standing on the podium at every major contest this season including the Dew Tour, TTR and the Euro X-Games.
Anderson's segment video shows a great deal of versatility as she charges some huge booters in the park, shows she can jib with the best of them and elegantly hauls ass while doing some big mountain riding. Props to Jamie for her awesome season.
