One man down

Our boy Marco just broke his collarbone last saturday. Get well soon, homie.

Forest and his Fullpart

This is Forest's Fullpart from this year's Givin release "too". One could easily say that this is one the better parts this season.

Can your filmer do that? E-Boss right there!

Urban Tank Diarrhea: Home Sweet Home

We spent some time back home in wonderful Allgäu a week ago. The reason why this post comes this late is, that those two fuckers where either searching for some bottomless pow in Switzerland or at least a little bit of snow aka chunks of ice in Italy.

The boys went up to GG the first days, riding the first snow up there. Here's Gido being happy.

Same with Alex

Benny on that switch FS Nose steez

We then hit up the bar to see Growling Tribe's first movie: Forest Of The Haze. The kids did a great job for their first movie. Here's Marco and Chris

Boozy the little cat was there, too.

Little Ruchte presenting his movie in front of the crowd. I think it's the first time i heard him actually open his mouth. Good Job with the movie, Stephan!

Benny and Simon having some Beers and a good time.

The next day we went up to start filming. Don't you disrespect the vest!

Well, fuck filming when there's two feet of fresh! Smiles all over the place! 

ClastCast with Alex

Alex went to Switzerland to ride some earlyseason pow with the Clastboys. Classic Railkid-in-the-Pow-Moments included...
Snowstoked´s Rider Check with our boy James Niederberger.

Flo and James: nasty look.

Wood Design

With the help of a CNC machining center I drew something into the wood. Work in progress.

We were on drugs

Benny, Alex, Elmi and a quick screenshot from our first filming trip. 


Ralphe is interning with Atagge for quite a while. It was time for his professional clothing.

Growling Tribe/VG

Our homies from Growling Tribe are premiering their new movie in Oberstdorf this friday. Homietime, beers and some snowboarding. Sign me up!

Urban Tank Diarrhea: Tokyo Superpost

 We've got a new section on the blog. Since Alex and Benny are spending most of their time on the snowboard together anyway, they got their own section here called the "Urban Tank Diarrhea" from now on. Brace yourself, boring foodpictures are coming.

First Post: Tokyo. The both of them just went to Japan for the Burton Raildays and some nuclear Sushi.

We went to a cool Snowboardshop, whose name we forgot, but seems like our homies from Gnarly just stopped by and left thing here.

We went shopping and found some hoods with scarfs on them


This was the view from the elevator in our hotel. Right next to the famous crossing in Shibuya.

And this was the view from the restaurant in the hotel. Damn, we should ride some more contests. Seems like you live like Kings there.

Other side. The only thing you see on the horizon is city. City everywhere.

Forest is so good at skating, too. Cab flip.

Ludde and Benny getting some booze and cigs.

Forest broke his board in the finals and still won the contest. Maybe it was the sticker's fault.

Stoked fan is stoked on a Alex's board.

Nils hurt his leg during the contest, so Alex pushed him around town for a couple of days. Hope he's all good.

Weird japanese shops.

awesome japanese arcades.

Benny and Nils

We also had to do some tourist stuff. Templetime.

Another picture from the breakfast. This city is just gigantic.

One last picture. Later Tokyo!

Andy Walker Full Part

Ladies and Gentlemen: Andy Walker!

Givin is on Itunes

Givin's "too" is now available on Itunes. Here's the teaser with Alex in it. It will get you hyped to click the download button.

Posse Page

We got a little crew checkout in the new Methodmag. Go check the online version to read what our soccer team looks like. And Benny has a little interview, too.

Trick of the week

Benny has the trick of the week over at Bs nosepress in Poland in a wild snowstorm. You can see the moving picture in "Fool's Gold".

James' Season review.

Here's James' banging season review with all his shots from last year's Crap Show plus a bit of street footage. More of that, please!

58 catalogue

Fifty-Eight Shop just started off the season with a brandnew homepage and a thick catalogue.
Get yourself a copy at the shop in Ulm or dowload it right here.

 Jagge got featured with a little interview and your favorite snowboarder Alex Tank appears in two sweet ads.


There was a little reunion with Ulm´s finest Boarders going on last weekend. It was a blast with all the good old homies.

The pre-58-video-premiere dinner.

A large part of the SIMPLE crew from back in the days:
(f.l.t.r.) Elias, Patrick, Linda, Julle, Jagge, Gun, Flo, Jan, Hanne, Kev

Elias´ opener part from that Alive&Kickin´ movie. Are you serious?

Innsbruck Vacay and Stubai

Since our boy Raffi is now living in Innsbruck, Alex decided to visit him in Cracktown to hangout, go snowboarding and drink some beers.
 An Instagram repost. That was drive up to Stubai. Right the moment when you get through the clouds early in the morning.

Hot laps and trannyfinding in one of the best pre-season parks in the alps was on the menu. The whole last week it was about 15 degrees celsius up there. Perfect slush for warming up in the early season. Even though we're no big fans of Schneestern parks, the Stubai crew did a great job in those warm temperatures and little amount of snow. As you can see we took the first picture of the park when it was already closed. We had way too much fun to take out the camera during the day.
 Another Insta-Repost. Raffi and Alex enjoying the sun.

Quite a few bags up here. For midweek it was crowded as fuck. And little too many skiers. 

 The crew for the day. Fips (his first days on snow after the ACL-injury), Alex, Raffi, Schepps, and Chris

We then went to the Innsbruck premier of Isenseven's new movie and had some beers. Raffi and Alex bricksquading.

the crowd, the best Tourmanager ever down on the right and Atagge homie: Basti Kuhn

Alex got a new Iphone...Aaaaaaaand it's gone. 

Peter Line

One of the funniest things in snowboarding in a long time

Finally, after 24 years Alex went on his very first camping trip. Hanne and Seli made this trip possible to the coasts of France and Spain last August.
