Holy Oly Revival!

My parents came to visit, so I decided to take them to the Holy Oly. They like beer, so I figured it would work out. We went up early to do a little night riding at the Summit at Snowqualmie, which turned out to be amazing. Apparently if it rains all day, then stays warm, the snow is perfect. My dad was claiming the best Friday night of his life, that is until we were at the bar eating dinner and the worst band ever started to play, really, really loudly. But it was still a good night. Things only got better for the event the next day. The sun…

Before and After

I missed out on the best skate weekend of the winter to put new floors in my house. Granted it was nice to be able to stain the trim and cut the boards outside instead of cooped up in the garage so it wasn't all bad. Oh yeah, and I have amazing, beautiful new floors now. Here's the HGTV-style before and after. THEN: NOW!

Fake Spring

Every year Portland does this. The spring fake out. For a couple days in the middle of winter it's warm and sunny. I definitely fell for it this year. I mowed the lawn and even planted some flowers. I have my fingers crossed that when it gets cold again (which it will) it's not so cold, or for so long that they all die. And of course the perk of fake spring is skateboarding! I did some of that and man was it fun.

Why?

 I am not opposed to people cashing in on action sports. In fact, I like to cash in myself. However, it really bothers me when these people, who have no real background, passion, or knowledge, try to be cool. Lat34's Life of Ryan recaps not withstanding, I recently came across this, which without mentioning any actual names, is from the people who do Sports Center. Yeah. "We think it was either the tech guys bonking the server while ollieing over it, or the wet snowboard gear that dripped over all the hardware that is causing this problem. Your page isn't available right now. but we're on it and we're working…

Last day in Tahoe

I was able to negotiate with my hostage takers to leave Tahoe today, but it wasn't without a little suffering. After two days of temperatures too warm for jackets, we went up to Boreal for night riding. Not only was it night time, but the weather patterns had changed and the temperature had dropped dramatically. In short, it was freezing. I braved the cold (and held my camera in my armpit between shots) to make a little video. Check it out. Now I am just waiting for my snowboard to show up (I think it ended up at the other house) so that I can make the trek to Reno…

I learned to use Youtube

Being a filmmaker is hard. I must have saved these 15 times before they were small enough for Youtube, but high enough quality to not look like crap. Anyway, I finally succeeded so go check them out! Day 1: Northstar-at-Tahoe Day 2: Sierra-at-Tahoe

Girls on Film

I have been riding in Tahoe, working on my suntan (ok, burn) and making videos of the Nikita photoshoot. I am not sure exactly how it happened, but I made one video and they convinced me to stay longer so I could make videos every day. apparently people appreciate my randomness and dry wit. so anyway, the compression on these suck. I will be posting all of them on futuresnowboarding.com when I am done here and they will look better, but if you want a special sneek peak, here ya go! Day Two

Nikita Chicks and Stuff

I am down in mid-California, about to go ride Northstar with the Nikita team girls. While there may be an epic video coming out of this day, the real reason I was here was the Nikita Chickita event at Mammoth. I've been helping out Josh as event manager -- getting sponsors, hyping up girls on the internet, and various other important tasks. All my hard work finally came to fruition on Saturday and I'd say we ran a pretty rad event. There certainly was a lot of free stuff for the girls, and well, everyone loves free stuff. I had planned to shoot photos of the contest but got recruited…
