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.
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.
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!
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!
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. Check out this tutorial for everything you need to know to take apart an old skateboard and put together a shiny new one, plus a bunch of tricks to make it all easier. Enjoy.
So I bought myself a GoPro and took it with me for a couple days riding at Winter Park, Colorado. This is an edit I made from the best clips. If you like the music, check out Synchronice. He’s a friend, and it’s a remix he did of the song Dazzle by Oh Wonder. Link to the song is here.
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.
