EVENT POST




..If you plan on making it up to this event then you'll be about 27 years late. This magazine clip was from an old readers digest and was my first look at snowboarding. I wish I had a camera at the time of this event because all the original heavies were there getting their shred on. I don't know if anyone actually hit 60MPH on those old whips but they sure were cranking down that hill and taking a beating when they ate it during the speed trials....awesome.

OAKLEY PARTY



Oakley threw another bender at the Red Hook Brewery last night. Trouble played and many many beverages were consumed by shred hungry "industry folk." Some of the photos are a little blurry but that's how most of the people saw the evening anyway. Enjoy.
