For the past year I’ve been working on the follow up to Will J in Japan that I filmed a couple years ago, and now that, in it’s full title, Monster Energy presents Bento a Backcountry Experience in Japan, but first a little trailer to get warmed up.
Bento backs up the Will J in Japan piece I worked on two years ago and I think the follow up has come out way better than the original. I always have got plans for what more I can do and only some of that will ever happen. From seeing as much social media as […]
As a little something where there is a lot more to come the new issue of Manual magazine has my image of Will Jackways riding in Japan for the Quest ad with the uncorked version below.

Will Jackways, method, Mt Olympus.
Shin B, Temple Basin.
Aleksander Oestreng, Backside Rodeo, Remarkables.
Working with skiers and snowboarders on the same project has positives and negatives, the positive being it can give a different set of outlooks on the same mountain. Charlie Lyons and Will Jackways take time to mind surf the scenery while filming for Big Risk Big Rewards.
Blue sky powder days and a perfect popper in the Wanaka Backcountry.
From the start the pow turn has been the essence of snowboarding, no matter how many you do there will be infinite more to do and transferring the pleasure of that turn into an image is a constant.
As a fair majority of my video work for the past couple years has been in the mountains I decided to split my work entirely into snow and no snow so this is the snow part of that. Work from Monster Energy, CHILL Adventures, Volcom, Yeah For It, Frontside Media, World Heli Challenge and more.
At the end of this season I had a few clips left over from working with Will J, a bit of pipe here, a trip to the clubbies there so we got to editing it with some POV footage that Will had from the season to give you this little piece.
This year the format is all new, just to make it to the comp we have spent the past few weeks with our team of Chalrie Lyons, Will Jackways and myself. It’s kind of a strange situation with very few teams having a completely new edit such as we have but it’s all just a game to see who the two teams that will get to fly at Mt Cook are so I have to ask you to help out and throw a vote our way over at http://worldhelichallenge.com/2014/08/the-way-of-the-lyon/
