Snowboard Season Ender 2015/2016

Well, winter is over and spring is (finally) here for real on the east coast. Despite the low snow numbers here this season, it was still my best season ever. Still scored, and I go out more days than I ever have. Looking forward to next year, but for now I’ll be enjoying a slightly warmer ocean. Cheers!

US Open of Surfing 2012 (Gallery)

Just going thru some old work. I shot these photos in Huntington Beach, CA at the 2012 US Open of Surfing. Got to meet some cool people and watch some of the best surfers tear up small but rippable HB. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Sigma 150-500mm.

Mountain Mission: My Backyard

This week’s video of the week is a special backyard edition. My roommates and I built this in our backyard out of the 2+ feet of snow Winter Storm Jonas dropped in late January. It was a bitch to keep from melting but it was worth it!

Shred Season is Upon Us!

I’m back! After a few months of being busy but also being lazy, I finally have time to sit down and write something.

Well, we haven’t had much of a winter here in the east, but I think I’ve been out riding more this season than any other. Why? Well…it’s because I’ve caught the bug. I’m saying I can’t get enough of snowboarding. I just can’t help myself.

Do you suffer from the same condition? Maybe for you it’s a skateboard, a surfboard, a bike, or an instrument? It’s all the same to me. Most of us have a passion, and I’m dedicated to pursuing mine. If that’s you too, then you found the right blog.

I have been busy stacking clips this winter – edits are coming soon! To give you a small taste, check out this backyard video from when Winter Storm Jonas gave us a real taste of winter. Check back soon!
