Parillo Painting

4 Oct

Mike Parillo’s first artistic tool was not a paintbrush, it was a shovel. Back when most of us were still falling-leaf heel sliding down bunny hills (or skiing), Parillo was hand crafting snowboarding’s first serious terrain parks. From the depths of his imagination, demented shapes and forms were called forth and sculpted into mountains of snow for the leaders of the new school nation to play on. And so it was that the style of snowboarding made a great evolutionary leap, using Parillo’s bold inventiveness as a launching pad.
One of the innovators from this early scene, snowboarding legend Jamie Lynn, inspired Parillo to try his hand at painting. Jamie then used one of his first pieces as a graphic for one of the boards in his Lib Tech pro-model series. Volcom used another in their landmark video, The Garden. And the rest, as they say, is history. Parillo has been a creative force, working quietly behind the scenes, ever since. His paintings have been shown in solo shows from Europe to California. His art has been displayed on snowboard bases every year since 1995, adorning many beloved board series like Lib Tech’s Emmagator line, Terje’s Balance line, Burton’s early Customs, and Travis Rice’s 2006/07, 2008/09, and forth coming 2010/11 pro models—to name a few.
Parillo now serves as Asymbol’s Art Director and Artist Liaison. He is the curator of the entire Asymbol art collection, and is responsible for overseeing the integrity of the art reproduction process. His mission is to ensure that all printed pieces hold up to each artist’s highest standards of quality before they get passed on to you.

The Stash

30 Sep

This winter, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming will have some new features to offer riders with the completion of the first Stash in the Rockies.

Burton Snowboards, Jackson Hole, pro riders, Snow Park Technologies, and the local Stash park crew have been working on the terrain park that features only natural elements. The Stash is only located at five other resorts worldwide: Northstar-at-Tahoe, USA; Avoriaz, France; The Remarkables, New Zealand; Flachauwinkl Resort, Austria; and Killington Resort, USA.

“The Stash concept is to use whatever indigenous materials and features the mountain has to offer – like rock walls, trees and drops – then enhance them a bit to create the ultimate natural park so riders can take their freestyle riding to the next level,” says Jeff Boliba, Global Resort Director at Burton Snowboards. “Riders like Jussi Oksanen have been helping with the Jackson Hole Stash, scoping the best lines and creating new features that will be super fun to ride.”

The Stash is scheduled to open this winter with four different runs and over 50 different features. Chain saw artist Bob King created 20 carvings that will be located around the Stash, one of which is a moose that riders can use like an up-rail. Burton team rider Jussi Oksanen came up with several features, as well as Jackson locals Bryan Iguchi, Rob Kingwill, and Travis Rice.

Kyle Clancy Interview on Snowboard Mag

30 Sep

This season Kyle Clancy is more than ready to build some huge kickers and slash the powdery mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. What you may or may not know is that this well-respected snowboarder grew up on the East Coast. After seeing the success of pro riders he idolized in Vermont, Kyle was in search of better terrain and bigger parks.

Predictably, after high school he decided to move to Cali with his buddy, Zach Leach. It wasn’t long until Kyle ran into Bobby George and Jeff Anderson, who helped pave the way for Kyle’s success. The rest was history. Kyle went on to travel with The Grenade Army, produce his own film company, and star in countless shred flicks (That’s It, That’s All, The Community Project and The Boned Age to name a few).

More recently, his Smokin Snowboards pro model just came out. Kyle’s busy life perseveres with the happenings of his snowboarding career and maintaining a family. The success he has gained from living on the West Coast the past eleven years is renowned. His habitual positive attitude continues to make headway.

Is there anything you can say about filming with Travis Rice for his new movie Flight?
Unfortunately, last year we didn’t really have snow in Wyoming. When we finally tried to get together and film, we had a lot of avalanche danger and the snow wasn’t that deep. It put things on hold for the Wyoming crew. I’m looking forward to getting out there this year and building some kickers ‘cause it’s a two year project.
