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...

Mr. Plant European Tour

The Euro leg of the global Mr. Plant Tour is a wrap and what a blast It was… We may be sad to part ways with the flora & fauna of the Mr. Plant entourage but our livers and bio clocks are thanking us. 6 EU premiere stops over the course of 9 days turned out to be 7 in the end. After countless beers, happy faces, planes, trains, automobiles, and more than 2000km spent in a tiny-foul-smelling Ford Focus, I'm having a hard time finding words that can express all the fun shared with friends new & old. All I will say is that Mr. Plant is one helluva movie you cannot allow yourself to miss. Superlatives like "Best since The Garden" are ticking in from the remotest corners of the world. And the man behind the Plant, Pat Moore himself, is as real as they come. Pat has an uncanny ability of focusing 100% on one thing at a time. Be it snowboarding or shaking a fans hand, looking him in the eyes and paying attention, the perpetually friendly Mr. Plant always delivers. He is as unique a human being as he is a snowboarder and his sidekick and movie Director Jake Price is a mighty fine fella as well But hey, don't take our word for it. Stop by one of the 20+ remaining global Mr. Plant premiere stops, go up to Pat & Jake and say hi and find out for yourself. Otherwise contain your enthusiasm until November 5th as that is the date when Mr. Plant drops on Itunes. To all of you that hosted us or came to the premieres- we thank you very much and look forward to seeing you in the snow.

PAT MOORE: Real Snow Backcountry 2014

"Real Snow Backcountry has changed format.

We are rolling out each contest video online every other day leading up to the broadcast. So check back regularly and enjoy." - ESPN / X-Games Head to xgames.espn.go.com/snowboarding/ For More Info!

Mr. Plant World Premier - Plymouth, NH

On the first day of October, Volcom Snowboarding was set to premier its newest Veeco Production, Mr. Plant. With the film being based around the travels of New Hampshire born, Pat Moore, it was only natural for the residents of Pat's home town to be the first to lay eyes on the masterpiece. The team arrived in Plymouth a day early to get a look at the best the town had to offer and were lucky enough to have the home town hero himself show us around town. Amongst the crew to make the journey to the North East was Terje Haakonsen, Jamie Lynn, Bryan Iguchi, Curtis Ciszek, Seth Huot, Mike Rav and Zach Normandin. Volcom Snowboarding team arrives at Pat's house in Plymouth, NH. Jamie never travels without a few markers in his pocket. This is what he calls "doodling". Pat showing the team the best of NH. The team approves! Turns out Plymouth has a rad little skatepark too. Rav shows em how it's done in the NE. Jamie got down.   Once the sun dropped, excitement grew. People began arriving from all over the map to see the films debut. There were influential members of the snowboard media, snowboard industry, shredders from all over the North East, and local fans a like. The theater filled up almost immediately as the anticipation was running at an all time high, Terje and Jamie might have even been the last two seats filled in the 450 seat venue. Pat and Jake were plenty nervous, but excited to show off all their hard work. Snowboarder Magazine's Tom Monteroso traveled across the country to check out the film. He figured he might as well catch a quick conversation with Jamie while he was at it.   True snowboard fans were not hard to find! All the Eastern Boarder shreds were there. Curtis and Jake were excited Billy Anderson showed up. Pat Moore was highly desired that night, and for good reason! As everyone pilled in and seats were filled, the mad scientist behind the film's creation, Jake Price, stood proud aside Pat Moore as they introduced their finished product. Pat offered gratitude to his home town for making him the person he is today, and Plymouth offered it back with a standing ovation. The theater carried that energy straight through to the first ever showing of Mr. Plant. There was absolutely no shortage of hoots and hollers throughout the film, as the soundtrack rattled skulls and the riding blew minds. Volcom's Ryan Immegart and Mike Aho accompany Volcom Snowboarding's main man Oren Tanzer in introducing Pat and Jake to the stage. Pat brought up his fellow snow team members and introduced each one to the croud. (Left to Right) Pat Moore, Bryan Iguchi, Jamie Lynn, Terje Haakonsen, Mike Rav, Zach Normandin, Curtis Ciszek, Jake Welch, Seth Huot. Jake and Pat give their final thank you before rolling the film. New Hampshire gives their thanks back to Pat for all his hard work and loyalty! Zach was down! So was Mike! Finally, the film finished up and the lights went on. Pat's home town was off their heads' with excitement, and poored out into the streets of Plymouth to carry on the celebration. Pat, Jake and the rest of the Volcom Snowboarding crew followed close behind, and had one hell of a night! Mr. Plant left the audience buzzing. Pat was a hot commodity after the film's debut! The streets of Plymouth went off!
