Style and innovation

This is Armada: Phil Casabon

By: Downdays March 27, 2019

After his “discovery” by Armada co-founder JP Auclair in the late 2000s, a young Quebec park skier named Philip Casabon became one of the first skiers to join the Armada program after the original “AR6.” JP’s judgment, of course, was on point — in the 12 years since, Casabon has become not just one of the brand’s signature stars, but one of freeskiing’s true GOATs with an unparalleled record of style and innovation.

Phil’s “This is Armada” cut takes us back to his beginnings with the brand, then through an absolutely stacked review of some of B-Dog’s greatest hits from over a decade of skiing the streets. If you’ve got any doubts whether B-Dog is one of the best to ever do it, this clip is worth a watch or three.
