Jesse Parkinson 2017 Edit (the banner video above)
When you watch 12-year-old Jesse Parkinson snowboarding, it’s easy to assume that he’s been riding since before he could walk. But this is only his third season on a snowboard — yes, you read that correctly. Growing up surfing on the Sunshine Coast, Jesse is clearly having no problems transferring his skills to snowboarding. It also doesn’t hurt when your riding buddy is Valentino Guseli — one of Australia’s most talented young snowboarders. Jesse pushes himself hard, taking many big slams along the way as he continues to progress at an astounding rate. He broke his collarbone in Saas-Fee but nothing could wipe that infectious smile from his face. Whether on a surfboard or snowboard, Jesse Parkinson has a bright future ahead of him. We wish him the best of luck as he pursues his dreams. This is his 2017 edit from Perisher and The Stomping Grounds, Saas-Fee.
Film: Jakob Kennedy, Alex Stewart, Wade Gardiner, Dean Parkinson

Bryan Iguchi and Erik Leon Full Part from COSA NOSTRA
Bryan Iguchi joins the newest member of the Arbor Snowboards‘ Pro Team, Erik Leon, in the opening segment of COSA NOSTRA. Both born and raised in Southern California, Bryan and Erik represent two generations of riders with a common background. As a founding father of Big Bear’s Outlaw Terrain Park, Bryan essentially laid the groundwork for the freestyle movement that shaped modern snowboarding and is so easily recognizable in Erik’s riding style. There is something refreshingly synergistic about watching one of snowboarding’s most respected veterans coming together with one of the most exciting up and comers in the game. The style gods are pleased with this one…
COSA NOSTRA is an authentic representation of snowboarding’s current state as seen from the perspective and experiences of the Arbor Team. Featuring Bryan Iguchi, Mark Carter, Marie-France Roy, Frank April, Erik Leon, Charles Reid, Scotty Vine, Mike Liddle, Emil Ulsletten, Ian Sams, Cam Fitzpatrick, Atsushi Hasegawa, and Mike Gray.
