The world of action sports is making big moves online. The announcement of four new action sport channels on YouTube last week featuring Kelly Slater, Tony Hawk, and Shaun White, to name a few, promises our favorite athletes all the time. Even better, it is just the tip of the iceberg.

Continuous streaming video platform Redux, makes it easy to flip through videos from all over the web by genre in playlists. Redux offers a whopping 50 action sport channels ranging from everything from watersports, BMX, Rad Collector, to skydiving and base jumping. Once you pick your ‘cup of tea’ you sit back and enjoy a custom curated list of vids. You can choose next at anytime and switch channels with a swift click. I have gotten lost on the Adrenaline channels for hours, it will suck you in.

Brand new product by Chill.com let’s you follow your favorite action athletes Facebook feeds of videos. Us enthusiasts stick together so you can probably follow your friends as well to get the best in big wave, big air, and best trick.

To top it all off, our favorite athletes are getting more tech savvy. My Instagram feed is filled with travel stories of Steve Cab, Jossi Wells, and the GoPro film crew that captures the best in action sports. Facebook feeds are littered with edits and regular tweets by surf, skate, and snow’s fame keep us all up to date.

Awww, I love it when a good marriage works. We can only hope action sports and tech stay together for the kids.

 

Watching the Windell’s summer series always makes me wonder how I can finagle going to summer camp as an adult. I trust you will get as nostalgic as I in watching this.

Chuck Patterson water skis Jaws.

Ex-professional freeskier turned professional waterman, Chuck Patterson, has combined the two sports taking his skis to tow in Jaws.

What is next, inflatable water tube tow in or hydrofoil air chair?

Chuck Patterson is clearly a very talented athlete— and has much larger balls than all of us.

 

1. Described by their Twitter as ‘melon splitting film,’ Rocky Mountain Sherpas is nothing short of cranium blowing. From Canada they came to present action sports with a talent on par with film. A combination of time lapse, Canons and the cutting of a master, the story of skiing is shown unmatchable to the naked eye. Together, fimmaker Dave Mossop and producer Malcolm Sanger created All.I.Can.

Chad Jones is one of my favorite people behind the scenes in the ski and snowboard industry. As the head of public relations at Big Sky Resort in Montana, Chad is the brain behind Big Sky Resort’s media strategy. And to our enjoyment, Chad takes life just about as equally serious as I do, always smiling, out sporting it up, and for Chad, the man is always getting it done.

This week, we get to enjoy Chad’s new Big Sky releases with the completion of the Spring pond skim and the 2011/2012 season’s pass promo featuring his alter ego, ‘Mad Chad!’
