On February 9th, 2015, Massachusetts declared a state of emergency due to massive amounts of snow blanketing the city and putting a halt to everyday life. On February 10th, the Arbor Snowboards team booked plane tickets Boston.
Colorado rider and Arbor lifer, Blake Axelson spent the majority of the season filming on the East Coast with friend and filmer Malachi Gerard. The result is 3 minutes of smooth and stylish jibbing cut to the equally smooth voice of Jessica Lea Mayfield.
Just miles from the Canadian boarder in the Great Northern White, a crew consisting of Brandon Hammid, Erik Leon, Cam Fitzpatrick, Blake Axelson, Mike Gray, and Sean Black found bottomless turns, sketchy backcountry situations, snow cat rides, plentiful airtime, and even our good friend J-Rob!
The third episode of the Postcard Series brings the Arbor team to the Land of the Rising Sun for adventures including, but not limited to: deep powder, sketchy street rails, sake bombs, backcountry booters, new beginnings and happy endings.
Blake Axelson has been a part of the Arbor family since he was a young lad and we’re stoked to see how he has developed as a rider and a human being.
The past two years, the crew from Arbor Snowboards have put together Superpark edits that have gone down in the books and this year is no different. Scotty Vine, Brandon Hammid, Curtis Woodman, Sammy Spiteri, Sean Whitaker, Yuma Abe, Erik Leon, and more showed up to Mt. Hood Meadows this May to pick apart the Superpark features and select creative lines, exhibiting the Arbor brand of Earth surfing, jump sending, and rail riding that typifies a solid Superpark offering. We are pleased to showcase the riding of this talented team in this edition of Parallel SUPER Parking.

When the Arbor Snowboards crew made their Snowboarder Magazine Superpark 17 video, there ended up being a ton of great footage that just didn’t make the cut. After our win in the Battle of the Brands it only made sense to make a “Cutting Room Floor” edit and give our team one last victory lap. Check out all of the clips that got clipped and may have been lost forever if not for the contest outcome with fresh shots

Aloof and quiet but gregarious, Blake is one stand up gentleman. Despite his mellow demeanor, the kid has one hell of a method and more matches on tinder than he knows what to do with. Wether it’s babes on the internet or Colorado terrain parks, Blake knows how to slay. In fact, thats probably why he’s been listening to so much Slayer lately…
