REAL WOMEN.

The X-Games REAL Series started in 2010 with Real Street as a way to bring the worlds of professional skateboarding contests and video production together. Expanding each year, there are now a total of 6 disciplines in the series. Real Women, added this year, is an all female video contest combining 4 different sports, Surfing, Skiing, Snowboarding and Skateboarding, with some of the most talented female athletes in the world. Each athlete submitted a 75-second video edit showing off their skills and showcasing their personalities. Yesterday it was announced that Ingrid Backstrom won the Fan Favorite while Leticia Bufoni won the Gold Medal given by the judges at the X-Games in Barcelona.

Check out the rest of these ladies and their various skills. Who did you vote for?

Female Wolf Pack is Full of Killer Babes

Killer Babes.

The Female Wolf Pack, releasing it’s teaser video on Vimeo, just yesterday, has made a splash with ladies and men across the online social world. With strong and widely known athletes such as Michelle Parker and Suz Graham, it’s purpose is “to increase female visibility in action sports.” The teaser itself shows nothing but badass women ripping on skis and surf boards, floating on water and in the air, climbing up mountains with their hands and their bikes. Awesome women doing awesome things.

Girls. Girls. Girls.

Rachel Burks, a big mountain skier based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, founded the Female Wolf Pack as a way to showcase what women can do in the world of action sports. On the website, which is still just a preview site until the 1/1/13 premiere, Rachel says, “I look at the things that I’ve done over the past six years and feel boundlessly lucky and stoked to be where I am. This is a feeling I’d love to share with other girls. I want to open doors for those who have the same thirst that I do: the thirst to show others what girls are capable of.” Basically, she wants women of all ages, of all corners of the action-sports world, to have a chance to showcase their talent, their drive, and their fearlessness to a wide-range of viewers. She goes on to say that she wants “… FemaleWolfpack.com to extend to all those who want to melt some faces off and hopefully inspire and foster the next generation of rippers.”

Women. Women.

There are 3 rules to this video-content-only website.

1. Fun. 2. “No Excuses, Play Like a Champion.” 3. No Nudity.

So ladies, if you wish to show off  your talent on this new female-only sports venue, enjoy yourself while being safe, stay positive by believing in yourself, and stay classy- bring on the sexy by kicking ass, not showing yours.

Michelle Parker Joins Contour

I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Parker at the World Premier of MSP’s Superheroes of Stoke in Seattle this year. She is tiny, sweet and totally rad. To welcome her to the team, Contour used some of Match Stick Production‘s footage from Whistler, BC along with her own footage taken with her cam caddy.
Charging hard and picking incredible lines, Michelle earns every bit of credit she gets. I’m personally excited to see more of her own footage on the snow!
