Story Behind the Shot: June 23, 2021

This video was captured on a pristine, remote lake in Vermont. This is the kind of lake where, if you get out there far enough, there are no other humans for miles. We spent a week camping on its shores and saw more fish than people in that time.

We took a canoe and a few kayaks across the lake for about 5 miles until we got to our campsite. The spot we picked was on a small peninsula with a sheltered cove just behind it and plenty of good trees for hammocks.

The weather was gorgeous for the first day but things quickly got rough. We endured a few rainy days and a few very cold nights before waking up to this beautiful morning. This was our 4th day out there and we were all ready for some sun.

We hit the water and fished for hours. There were ideal spots all around our camp filled with hungry bass. In one spot, I had 4 bass blow up on my lure in a row! It was the best day of fishing I think I’ve ever had.

I had a couple GoPros with me and shot some video while we were out on the water. I think this video gives you a solid idea of just how good the fishing was. I still can’t believe what happened that day.

Mountain Mission 2018: Mountain Creek Pow Day

What a spring here in the east – it really has been a Miracle March. This was probably the most snow I’ve ever seen at Mountain Creek NJ (my home mountain) and I got to ride some lines I’ve never even looked at before! There was that much snow! We had so many storms I totally forget what they called this one, but I’ll call it pretty damn epic. Freshies on every run! Check out the edit.

Mountain Mission 2018: February Teaser

February was one for the books! What an epic month – got to travel around to Whiteface NY, Revelstoke BC, Banff AB, and many more sick spots! It was truly a great month to be snowboarding, and I collected quite a few clips along the way. This is just a quick teaser to give you a taste of what went down – full edits are on the way and dropping soon so stay tuned!

Mountain Mission 2018: Hunter Mtn. Pow Day

So Hunter Mountain NY reported 28″ of fresh snow thanks to Winter Storm Riley. Unfortunately, this crazy dump also killed the power to the entire Hunter area – so I was forced to hike it to get the goods. The hike was epic and totally worth it. During my run down, ski patrol stopped next to me and told me that they just got power back and the lifts were going to spin in a few minutes – what a reward for that hike. Check out the video!

Burton Toe Strap Swap for Union & Ride Bindings

If the toe straps on your bindings are broken or just aren’t doing it for you, I would highly recommend that you swap on some Burton toe straps. It’s a quick and easy mod and it will make your bindings much better. The straps I’m talking about are called Burton Gettagrip Capstraps. You can get them for around $40. These bad boys hug the toes of your boots like nothing else. I’m talking total contact with less of that painful, uneven pressure you get from other toe straps (I mean you, Union). Check the video for a quick tutorial.
