Bear Mtn

Bear Mtn is on point right now. Brent and I loaded up the car and headed up there before the sun was even up. Quite possibly the earliest I have ever left for Bear.
Brent looking oh so dapper
Good people watching and lots of snow
Josh Morse and Brent Sandor
Watching the sunrise
Brent doing his best Jamie Lynn impression
My best Terje impression....I still have a long way to go
James from Active picking a winner
We met these 2 funny ass kids from Long Beach. This is my new Friend Richie
did Burton knock off the LOVE series from a Redhook beer promo board?
This kids red Volcom jacket is about 6 years old. One of the first season Volcom did outerwear. I thought about trading him jackets just to have a vintage Volcom snowboard jacket
Keeping that sticker on!

Secret Spot

Jeremy Jones and Seth Huot may have "The Spot" out in Salt Lake City, but us Southern California shredders have our own Secret Spot. Okay, Okay it might not be that big of secret considering it has 3 chairlifts and lift tickets but it is still somewhat of a secret. Loaded up the car early in the morning to get there at a decent time. No lift lines, the best snow Southern California has seen in years and a couple friends make for a really good time.
Not a good way to start the day
B. Sandor give the secret spot a thumbs up
The view into the Valley. 1 hour from Downtown L.A.
Cory Lake heading up to the "expert" terrain
I was a little scared
Beautiful views
Empty parking lots
Cory Lake mean muggin'
The aniticipation on the way up was killing me.
I will definetly be back when snow falls again.

What Kind of Board Is That?

Look who is gracing the cover of the Latest issue of Snowboarder Magazine. It's Gigi Ruf! He appears to be riding a board from the newest snowboard company.....or is it?
Fellow Volcom rider Mark Landvik also got a pretty hefty interview in this issue. Check it out to hear all about Brainfarm productions and his new hat he got in N-Zed.

That Time of the Year

The snow just started flying and it's already time to start showing 09/10 product. Here is a little sample of what Electric has to offer for goggles next season. If you can't find something you like here you have some serious issues.

One night about 5 years ago BJ and I were sitting in our house and this montage came on AFV. I have never laughed so hard in my entire life. Since then I have dedicated at least 30 seconds a week to tracking down this video. Since AFV doesn't allow stuff on it was hidden deep in the realms of the world wide web. Those 7,800 seconds really paid off. Enjoy.

Powder at Bear Mtn.

Bear should be good for the next few months. Winter was a few weeks late, but hot damn it's in full effect now.

Things I am Happy About

In no particular order:
Finding all my At The Drive In CD's
Murder City Devils reunion tour
2 ft plus of local mtn snow
Rain in San Diego
The Jam
Jake Hobbs being my friend
My CB550
My new work bench
All my friends
The new Killer's Album

That's it for today folks.

Snow Snow Snow

Storms have been hammering the West Coast. I have lived in San Diego pretty much all my life and I have never seen it rain as much as it did today. Most of the time rain means snow.
Photo sent to me from Bryce Maxwell at Mt. High

Storm Totals thus far:
Mt. High 15"-26"
Bear Mtn 16"-18"
Mammoth Mountain 24"

Anyone want to shred this weekend?

Rowley X

Geoff Rowley is the man. Here are a few photo from an autograph signing/screen printing session with Geoff at Epidemic in cathedral City. How many kids do you know who can say they have a hand screened shirt by Geoff Rowley?

BJ's House

BJ has lots of fun and exciting things at his house in Portland, OR. I only snapped a few photos for 2 reasons. Reason 1 because I didn't want to overwhelm anyone with too much good stuff. Reason 2 I am an idiot.

This guys wasn't "at" BJ's house but he was near BJ's house.

St Micheal killing Satan. $2 to the first person who can tell me what's very very wrong about this depiction.

A signed Eddie Money picture. 2 Tickets to Paradise is what I would trade to get one of those.

Jesus and a few followers at Mary's funeral. It was sad.

Circa 2004

You may think this photo was taken in 2004, but it was actually taken today! Now lets hope people don't go back out and buy their lifted F900's they couldn't afford a few months ago.
