Arthur Longo is the guy you want to have in your home. Trippy and talented, we would like him to invite himself at home! While waiting for him to pull off his skills on the Vali slopes, we're going to introduce you to his new Volcom kit, his Vans boots and the Capita board signed by Arthur Longo, all available at Homies now!
WHO IS ARTHUR LONGO?
Who wouldn't dream of riding like Arthur Longo? His ultra-calm aerial style and his control have something to envy. Originally from France, he has raw talent, and his ability to attack any type of slope makes him one of the most complete snowboarders. Whether it's the Olympics or smaller snowpark events, he makes riding at his level feel like a leisurely walk in the park.
SNOW SINCE THE 90S
This is not his first rodeo for the 32 year old guy. This French snowboarder has been hitting the slopes since the 90s and has racked up a ton of prizes.
COMPETITION AND SNOW VIDEOS
In his well-filled list, there is notably his first victory in 1999 as French Halfpipe champion. Subsequently, from 2007 to 2010, he won many events that led him straight to the Vancouver Olympics. His passage will be marked by a 19th position in the Halfpipe. His frenetic race did not stop there: in 2013, he won 2nd position in the SuperPire at the Winter X Games. This will allow him to return to the Olympic scene in Sochi in 2014, where he will go to the semi-finals.
HIS YOUTUBE CHANNEL: SHE - SIDE HITS EUPHORIA
Arthur Longo literally blew up the internet with his Side Hits Euphoria series. He knew how to capture something accessible to everyone and made it incredible. His recipe? His skill makes his rides look larger than life and his landings are so smooth it should be humanly impossible. In his new short, Side Hits Euphoria, he shows how to take the classic search for jumps to a whole new level.
WHAT ARE SIDE HITS?
Of course, snowboarding in the big Rocky Mountains is insane. Everyone knows that. But for 99% of winter sports enthusiasts, it is not at all accessible. On the other hand, side hits are within everyone's reach. What are side hits? These are jumps on slightly weird bumps. These are hollows in the sides of ski slopes made by creative riders. It's the feeling you get when you ride the freshly groomed slopes while watching new jumps made by snow enthusiasts.
VOLCOM ARTHUR LONGO SIGNATURE COLLECTION
Our friend Arthur does not stop at films and medals. No, he also thrives on fiery collaborations with Volcom. Do you want beautiful? Here it is!
A COLLECTION AS FUNCTIONAL AS FASHION
Anxious to offer a collection as functional as it is fashionable, Longo has collaborated meticulously for every little detail of the collection. The result is a classic, timeless aesthetic that can serve both for the backcountry and as winter wear in everyday life.
The first creation of this signature line perfectly rivals its unique style. The Gore-Tex jacket will transport you to the depths of the back country through the groomers. Spoil yourself with winter gear you'll use every day that will give you trusted protection with the Gore-Tex shell. This little gem on the cutting edge of technology has two layers for twice the pleasure! The regular cut of the jacket is not to be confused with all the gadgets hidden in it:
fully taped seams;
super suede chin guard;
mesh-lined zippered vents;
brushed tricot lined handwarmer pockets;
pockets for glasses;
and much more…
Give yourself the comfort you deserve. Its big plus? Its technology specially designed to keep you dry.
You can expect the same feat with the signature collection snow pants. Equipped with Gore-Tex technology, the clean-lined pants will seduce you with their street look. They have been designed to complement the jacket perfectly, as they both feature the Zip Tech® Pant to Jacket Interface. They come in three colors: khaki, blue and black. Impossible to go wrong! They go with everything, and even if you spill a little après-ski beer on them, the Gore-Tex technology will take care of making them slip, neither seen nor known.
We can't believe ourselves, it's so sick, but Arthur never ceases to surprise. He has two other collaborations that will make you shed a little tear of happiness, it's so beautiful: snow boots with Vans and a board with Capita. We don't tell you any more there, there! Keep reading!
SNOW VANS BOOTS
If you didn't know, Arthur has been a member of the Vans team for quite a while now. For his first "Pro Model" collection, he wanted boots that pushed the limits of the possible to the maximum while being accessible and pleasant to put on by anyone. Available in an apricot/black version, the Hi Standard Pro are distinguished by their lightness and support. These boots will be your best off-road friends. Just like Arthur, you too will finally make your wildest dreams come true with Vans.
A BOARD IN COLLABORATION WITH CAPITA
The icing on the cake, for us, is his collaboration with Capita. The CAPITA MERCURY SNOWBOARD is his favorite all-terrain vehicle! It is specially designed for those who like to work hard to get out of all possible situations. From pow and kickers to side kicks and park tricks, this award-winning series is renowned for its all-mountain versatility. This board was designed to be powerful when you want it and float when you need it.
