Hightide Mfg


If you want the best tool for the job you would go to the craftsman that has the years of experience to tell you what tool that would be. So if you want the best board for riding the deep snow of British Columbia you would go to a tiny little shop in Pemberton B.C. and talk to the people that have made snowboarding their life. Akasha Weisgarber, Gabe Langlois & Tyeson Carmody have taken their passion for snowboarding and started making some amazing boards right here in our backyard. The materials are top notch and as Alex Warburton says

“Akasha is one of the greatest shapers of the modern snowboard era.
Just saying’..”

So if you are looking for that board to get you around any part of the mountain this year hit up Hightide Mfg.

Brothers on the Run in Chile

Just recently returned from an epic Chile trip shooting for the Youtube RedBull original series “Brothers on The Run” staring John and Eric Jackson. We also had Hawaiin big wave srufer Ian Walsh along for the trip. Good snow, big mountains and epic left point breaks made this trip one to remember. WCP’s Red Epic captured it all for these episodes and the Series’ Alaska ones too.  Check it out!

Kids, Toys, Helicopters and Snow in August

It’s great living in a place that has snow in the summer. Especially because the marketing and production schedules usually dictate that media for any fall/winter releases has to be captured in the middle of summer.

We were approached by our now good friends at we are 1188 to help facilitate a shoot for a prototype kids snow toy. The budget was modest (to be kind) but that is how they ended up with us. Other companies they spoke to could not pull it off for the funds available. With our in-house gear, amazing crew and relationships with helicopter service providers we were able to hit the number and leave them with amazing footage.

And as usual we had a great time doing it. Huge thanks to:

Gabe Langlois, Mark Gribbon, Taylor Loughran, Gus Ward, Dave Petry, Andrew McAloon, the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club and of course we are 1188.
