TRAVIS’ FAVORITE “ART OF FLIGHT” PROVEN ALL TERRAIN FREESTYLE GEOMETRIES
King of the Hill winning valley leaping, Alaska ripping, Jackson Hole freeride & jib sticks. 100% shredtassium for sliding in and out of tricky situations with ease in all types of riding conditions: hardpack, park, pipe, pow, rails, and even ice. For psychoLOGICAL shredding advantages, Travis continues to have two shapes: a pow-specific pointy 161.5 & 164.5 and a park/jib-specific blunt 153 & 157. And of course, factory de-tuned to Travis’ specs!
The supernatural Travis Rice descended upon our Lib Tech Seattle offices last week to celebrate the release of the T.Rice Libited Edition Art of Flight Board and Book package.
While in SeaTown Travis appeared on the ‘Chase Jarvis Live’ web streaming program, along with Brain Farm’s Executive Producer Chad Jackson, where they gave in-depth insight into the process of making the Art of Flight. If you missed it, you can watch the interview in its entirety at:
Travis also paid a visit to rain city’s beloved Snowboard Connection at the South Lake Union store where he signed autographs for NW fans. He also took his sharpie to the SnoCon inventory stack of T.Rice boards, a little surprise from Travis to some unsuspecting rippers.

What banana did you ride this year and how did it perform?
I always ride my own banana It would just feel to weird strapping someone else s banana on.
Lando remembering Travis' Supernatural event...
Supernatural was fricken horse bananas!! That shit cray! It was pretty intimidating with the cast of characters who showed up but when we got to the top of the coarse I think everyone's bananas went a tad bit limp, and I'm not talking bout shred sticks Cause we all know lib sticks hold firm. But when Lago dropped launching a massive method followed by a frontside 5, then absolutely nailing the kicker, it was on and the hammers ensued. Just being able to witness that level of riding on a absolutely untouched slope was almost surreal. Even though I couldn't send it as hard as I wanted to, I was just honored to be a part of the best snowboard contest in the world. Not to mention it was a week long window and the comp fired on the first day, so the rest of the time we just continued to pull baldfaces pants down, and just shred with friends and that's what it's all about.
