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!
AHHH! What a week of powder in Colorado! This was definitely some of the deepest pow and steepest terrain I’ve ever ridden. So blessed, so lucky, and still super stoked about the whole thing. I can’t believe the amount of pow I got in my face.
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!
If you are struggling to get those bearings out of your old wheels, or just plain don’t want to mess anything up setting up a new deck, you found the right video.

Here’s a video for this week featuring Bobby Martinez, that guy who got really pissed at the ASP a few years back. I’m kidding. Bobby has some of the sickest rail and tube skills in the game and after he left the tour, he kept on doing it all under the radar. Check out this clip for some slow-mo goofy foot tube riding.
Here’s a sick video of the week from Maine. These guys found some sweet backcountry lines and they don’t hold back. Check the huge backflip off the rock. Sweet soundtrack from Odesza too. Enjoy.
