Max de Vries is still only 15 but has been appearing in the sickest edits and rail jams for what seems forever. A few weeks back, he placed 2nd at the Rock A Rail, knocking out some of the best rail riders, 10 years his senior. Not only is he an amazing snowboarder, he’s also talented at football and plays for the Dutch youth national team. Did we mention he is funny as hell? Read this interview and discover more.
We chat to rail slayer, Rachida Aoulad, to talk fake boobs, tramp stamp tattoos, bad teeth, worse skin, snowboarding and other randomness.

Postland have fully embraced their premiere tour this year, for their soon to be released movie “Connect The Dots.” On week 3 of the tour, the crew headed to Innsbruck and Dachstein with; Kas Lemmens, Cees Wille, Benny Urban, Roel Van Oosterhout, Jesse Augustinus, Bob Van Unnik, Dominik Wagner and many more.
After the madness that was Rock A Rail, the organisers gathered the snow from the course set up and encouraged the Dutch natives to hit the local stret spots in The Hague. We teamed up with Taste Snowboard Magazine, who had knowledge of the best spots, found some eager riders and headed to the beach.
If you weren’t in the wonderful city of The Hague for Rock A Rail, you truly did miss out. Rock A Rail is easily one of the best contests in Europe right now and the riding was next level. Here is a little iPhone movie edit from the finals, for your viewing pleasure.
Hailing from The Netherlands, Dylan Norder has relocated to Innsbruck, where he has been showing off his rail game to the locals. Here we discuss riding fridges, life in Innsbruck, plans for the future and more.

Everyone from The Netherlands has been telling us about Roel for a couple of seasons now and for good reason. This softly spoken Dutchie is quickly rising to the top of their talent pool.
