Markus "Mä" Keller or the Chamäleon himself  is one of the last true snowboarding all-rounders. Whether its transition, park , back country, jibbing or big mountain riding that rocks your boat, Markus Keller can ride it. This year, the former World Halfpipe Champ, Arctic Challenge winner, and proud cover boy of 17 snow mags within one calendar year put all his eggs in one basket and dedicated himself 100% towards filming for "Chamäleon", his signature movie that's co-sponsored and produced by Volcom.  With the looks of Marky Mark (Quote Cody Dresser) and on-snow skills the equivalent of Dirk Diggler’s sheet savagery, we should be in for a treat.. Stay tuned for a Chamäleon premiere coming close to you.

Superparty at Superpark 17
Mark another year in the books, boys… 17 to be exact. Four more of these things and maybe they can replace the energy drink sponsor with an alcohol sponsor? Last week the folks over at Snowboarder Mag kindly welcomed us to their prestigious Superpark event, a 5-day super session filled with snowboarding’s a-list riders and hungry up-and-comers. Super-sized jumps, Gotham City-like urban setups, hips with missing landings and many other features were built by the various park staffs around the country to put the shredders’ skills to the test. The Volcom Snow family rallied deep in attendance with the likes of Dylan Alito, Scott Blum, Seth Huot, Zac Marben, Johnny Lazz, Daniel Brown, Frank Knab, Hunter Wood, Zack Normandin and Ruiki Masuda taking some grilling hot laps throughout the 5-day session. Greeted with Springtime conditions by the great town of Bend, the boys got busy on AND off the hill. Team shred! Hot laps and cold brews with the team all week long! The first few days were filled with high-fives and catch-up conversations with the team adjusting to what Superpark 17 had to offer. As the week progressed so did the shredding. East-coast Volcom family rider Zack Normandin went MC Hammertime the whole week, sending some of the most beautiful methods on the gap hip during the live webcast session. Dylan Alito, Hunter Wood and Frank Knab triple-teamed the single step-up jump with double back flips… if that makes any sense? Scott Blum also pulled out a few tricks from his bag, planting his Replant snowboard all over the place. Off the hill, team manager Pat Barraza turned the heat up and fired up the grill, providing dogs and burgs for everyone coming down from the hill. Dylan "Juggalito" Alito pickin' nose over the gap hip No clever caption necessary... Hunter Wood, straight up style. Zack Normandin shows proper Method as Johnny Lazz and Hunter Wood enjoy the scenery Daniel Brown blow tail! Team Manager, Pat Barraza, providing sausage for all! Lazz: “Let The Boy Watch!” Sunset sessions took place every night, recapping the day and preppin' for the mayhem in the next few hours!
