Mike "Rav" Ravelson sees the world differently than the average person. He is not restricted to boardslides, nosepresses or backside 720s. Rav does handstand slides, summer salts, fast plants, cartwheels, and tail blocks. He sees a 20 stair hand rail and does a layback boardslide, not a halfcab 5-0. Mike Rav lets his snowboarding do the talking, and it speaks volumes. He spent his 2013 season filming for the newest Keep The Change film "Roll-Call" by winter, and lapping the High Cascade tow rope by summer. No matter what time of year it may be Rav is strapped into his snowboard, and most likely, he's the one having the most fun.

Who do you look up too and why: First of all my family, everyone works really hard at whatever they do, and they’re always supportive. In snowboarding I look up to guys like Pat Moore, Scott Stevens, Grenier, Ted Lavoie, BIG Mike and Tanner Pendelton. I think they have an awesome blueprint for what snowboarding should be: which seems like hard work, friends, and constantly having a good time.

Where do you look for inspiration: My friends. I have so many talented friends. It gets me psyched watching all of them do what they do.

One snowboard trip you that you’ll never forget and why: Hard question…everyone has been insane. One that stands out is our first trip this year to New York. We crammed 10 people extremely uncomfortably into the Eastern Boarder Van (has no heat,) with no money, or plan, but ended up being extremely productive. I just think it’s awesome when you’re essentially working with nothing, but still make things happen.

What is Teleportation and how would you use it: Teleportation is something I’ve been dreaming about for years. I would use teleportation to teleport to the bathroom in the middle of the night when you don’t want to get up. That’s the worst. Also for traveling but most of the time I enjoy a long plane ride or car ride.

Snowboarding has given me: Everything. I honestly cannot imagine my life without it. I’ve met most of my best friends snowboarding and learned so much from it.

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!
