Arthur Longo is a transition specialist, the bigger the tranny, the better.. When Terje himself says "Arthur is one of the guys I look to for speed and amplitude during Quarter pipe events" you know you're doing something right. Terje should be a TM, cause Arthur said "thanks for the props" and went on to win The Arctic Challenge, back in 2009… Then, year after year Arthur has been stepping up his game with killer parts in the Pirate Films "Hooked" (2010), "Bottom Line" (2011) and the stellar opening part of "Unique8" (2012). Lately though, its been all about pipes for Arthur, who has his eyes set on the 2014 Sotchi Olympics… With an insane run at the 2013 Euro X-Games in Tignes that earned him 2nd place, this uncharacteristic frenchie is already qualified for the No-Rainbow Games. Go Arthur!

What was your first snowboard? The first one I can recall is a Nitro 114 that I still have in my garage. I just had a look at it, it's funny it's way stiffer than the boards I use now.

What was your first snowboard movie that got you hooked? It's either TB4 either Subject Haakonsen but I'm probably mixing up the years I was really young. I watched Terje's movie again lately... Still amazing!

Scariest moment of the season? I fell on my back last summer in New Zealand. I was riding the pipe and made a mistake, went off the coping then back into the icy wall straight on my back. It's of course scary to fall so hard on your bones, one was broken by the way.

Best trip? Two seasons ago I went to Haines in Alaska to shoot some lines in those big mountains. I stayed up there for 5 weeks at the end of the contest season, it was awesome to be in a complete different world for quite some time. Everything was new for me, learning how to ride those lines, learning to be patient for the weather, discovering the wild life... It was such a good experience with some amazing people. My goal is to go back there as soon as I get the chance.

One item you always have in your snowboard pants? As a typical French man I used to have French snacks (ciggies) everywhere I was going to but I got rid of them lately. I don't need much to snowboard... Maybe my phone so I can capture some good times...

Besides snowboarding? There's too many things I feel I don't have time to do. I go thru phases, right now I take pictures and start to draw stuff. I love doing sport in general, surf, skate, soccer, anything... I love to hang with my friends and I love going to concerts.

Future plans? I kinda planned my time towards the next Olypics for about a year now. I want to do good there. When this is over I'll go back to filming and to some more creative projects...

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone

The Muzelle Festival
Arthur Longo and Olivier Gittler were hosting the second edition of The Muzelle Festival last weekend in Les 2 Alpes. It started with an amazing morning session on Saturday with all the friends on the glacier and then followed with a Berlin "kind of" festival down in the station village during the afternoon. Oli and Arthur have worked their asses off to offer everyone such a fun park to ride as the conditions are pretty tricky! A fast and quick tranny snake with some pretty decent hips in the middle of the run, the perfect ingredients for a family shred. After two hours of snow surfing, it got too sharky so we went down to the resort to check the festival out. Anne (Arthur’s GF) prepared with her Berlin Freunde and the 2 Alpes crew a lovely zone including a flea market, a pétanque tournament, a bar, an Indian food restaurant, a lamb roast and a lot more.. The music line up consisted on DJ Fred Marchadier, Leopard Ale, YGGL, Pat Burgener’s Band and Dirty Deep. A couple beers after the party ended in the Avalanche club (as always)… Check out the full report of the event on Fluofun : http://www.fluofun.fr/news/20579-muzelle-festival-reportage-et-port.html Photos by @Annkristin_z Video by @muzellefestival Thanks to everyone involved !

Retrospection video by Olivier Gittler and Arthur Longo
If you plan on only seeing ONE snowboard video this year, then here you have it. Volcom lifer Olivier Gittler and his trusty collaborator Arthur Longo just put together a full length edit of all their Instagram short clips from the winter past.. In it you’ll see their unique take on snowboarding. And as you’ll watch you’ll slowly realise that “higher and further”’ isn’t always the goal. That it is just as much about the right turn at the right place at the right time. Or a backflip? And another backflip.. Backflips are never wrong. At times it might even look like the boys are bored with their day job (?!?) as they seem to be surfing more than snowboarding. But why not? Therein lies the beauty of this edit.. Get out off the park and look at what’s hidden behind it.  Or even IN it, as you follow our friends and their friends, finding park lines yet to be thought of.. Or making their own park outside of the park.. This is truly beautiful Olivier .. Please do even more of what you’re already doing.  Filmed on location in Les Des Alpes, Kitzsteinhorn, Chamonix, US Open, Arlberg and more Music: Leopard Ale IG: @leopard_ale
