Here’s to our Denver Nuggets beating Oklahoma City Tonight!
Never Summer stopped by the home of the Denver Nuggets, the Pepsi Center, to show Nuggets mascot Rocky the new Never Summer Norad longboard. Since Rocky is a huge longboarding fan he insisted we grab our GoPro Hero to catch the action…
Freeriding isn’t the future, it’s the present. If you prefer to just cruise, hit some banks or slide the steepest switch-back in town, this deck does it all! The Revolt’s twin shape and Rocker profile create the ultimate deck for any style of riding you desire. Light and durable, the Revolt is hands down the best freeride longboard on the market!
When Pop C!ty was asked to test the “Proto”, Never Summer’s new true-twin, blunted out, carbonium topsheet, “all mountain freestyle” snowboard, we were stoked. There’s been alot of hype about this board, so Ben grabbed a ’52 wide, Dave copped a ’57 and we headed to the Canyons to see what was good.
Quick run with brady farr on the new proto c/t in crested butte colorado. This kid kills it….stomped jumps all day in the backcountry on the latest film trip to crested butte.
Some of the best December snow conditions ever at Jackson Hole, and not a bad start down in Silverton Colorado either! Team Rider Ryan Cruze put together a little go pro edit to show us how its been.
This was our first day of jibbing for the 2010-2011 season. It was a super fun session until it got prematurely ended by some not so cool law busta’s. So stoked for winter to be here and to be shredding again. Enjoy
Got a call from loveland on the 23rd letting us know that they would be opening on sunday the 24th. I was quick to wax the board grab some beers and wait a sleep-less night in anticipation for the shred on sunday! I meet up with Gags,Chach,Lips,Decicco,Jake Steez, Sasso. We all jumped right in and started the get our turns on! It was great opening day, the temp was a bit cold but the side country and ribbon of fun were killer!
The Never Summer Hood trip was sick. I was chillin at my house when Decicco hit me up and asked if they could swoop me on their way from Colorado to Hood for a session at Windells. Of course I was stoked and down. The crew of Nick Decicco, Chris Lynch and Ryan Cruze “RC” showed up late one night and we were outta Salt Lake the next morning at Sunrise. With it being an 11-12 hour drive directly west into the sun and in mid summer, it was hot as f***. It’s wild to believe that when it’s 100+ degrees you can still go snowboarding. We stopped along the way only for Gas and to bang out some Skate tricks. RC got a different trick at every stop and it was sick. We rolled into the Windells and met up with the rest of the crew, Rick and Bill Rodriguez, Ryan Stephens and photographer Kevin Westenbarger. Right before sunset we got busy setting up our tents in “Tent Village”. Tent village is a bunch of tents behind the Arc(employee housing at Windells) around a sick pond in the woods right below Mt Hood. With base camp set up, we rolled over to the camp for an awesome skate session inside “BOB” the indoor skate facility at Windells. The Shredding started the next morning and for the next 6 days we would Snowboard and skate the days away in the unreal snow and skate parks at Windells. Riding at windells in the middle of summer is riding the sickest park in the country with soft slushy snow and perfect warm weather. What more could you ask for? We were hanging out in the beautiful Oregon woods and snowboarding in August. The week was a blast and finished with a bang. The night before our departure was the eve of RC’s birthday. We went on an epic journey, including a late night 5 person canoe ride to the island in the middle of the pond and a trip to the river to watch the bats swoop bugs off the top of the water. Whatever you do make sure to take time one summer to go to camp at Windells, you will be stoked. For us it was an epic trip that will never be forgotten. Big thanks go out to Never Summer for sending us and Windells for having our team come visit.
I would highly recomend this trail over the next few weeks! The aspens are in full force up there right now and the drive/ride/and shuttle are one of a kind. Its about a 15min ride from the top of the east trail. Head into leadville and turn left on 5th and go till you hit the first bridge on the dirt road and go right to the top. then head back down 5th and take a right on alder and go to the end and you will see the trail. You can either leave a car at the bottom or trade off drivers. The drive from the bottom of the trail is only about 2min drive up so its a real quick fun run with great scenery!
If you ever get a chance to head out to frisco i would recommend this trail. A couple pushes and your rolling down a really scenic ride.
Take exit 201 frisco and park on the east side, bus comes on 44 min of each hour at the bus stop. Perfect time to have a beer and do it again!
Check out some Clips from the past few months in this montage edit. Stay tunned for the last longboard edit for this season, the last week of aug! We will be shooting up in the mountians on the copper to frisco trail if you want to join!
