SUMMER SHRED IS COMING UP....! Written By: capita4us
Here's a F/S air from Scott Stevens to whet your appetite for summer shred. Few more weeks and the glaciers of the NW will be full of activity....!
(unless of course, you live in the southern hemi - in which case, your winter's about to begin!)
SUPER-WORKED. As in, a working over. Which is what we received at Superpark this year. Ok, not all of us. Injury tally: Burns (shoulder); Stevens (back); Kimura (concussion/hip contusion); Kotsenburg (broken collarbone, surgery on Monday); Cocard (bruised heel). The rest of us escaped unscathed, aside from sun burns and fart trauma. Fun was had, a realms is in the works and shots were stacked, despite the carnage. Always a fun time, thanks to Pat and the Snowboarder Mag crew.

Come on out to Evo in Fremont this Friday, as some of the C3 gang will be opening a show. Participants: warehouse manager/under the bus victim LTD Kyle (aka papermarbles), "special projects" Mat (aka UFC mat), along with seasonal warehouse slave/talc recipient Tom Coss. Also included: Russ Olson (he doesn't work for us, but he must be cool if he spoons with these dudes). So, be cool yourself and come show some love for some local artists. Mustaches and tight pants are not mandatory, but will be present. There will be refreshments of course!
The first US edition of the Ride Shakedown took place at Snoqualmie this past fri/sat. CAPiTA am Izzy Lalive won the rail jam on friday night, netting herself a cool 5G's in the process. Congrats, Izzy! Saturday, the slopestyle went down, with CAPiTAlists TJ Schneider & Andrew Burns joining Izzy in the fun. None of our crew won cash on saturday, but fun was had by all. Look for the Shakedown to return to Summit at Snoqualmie next season, as well as the OG Canadian event, going down at Mt. Saint-Sauveur in early April.

It's the place to be right now, it seems. Phil Jacques was just in Anchorage, filming with TWS. Scott Stevens is there for a few more days, with Think Thank. Dustin's on his way up there with Grenade. Cocard en route to meet up with Airblasters. Brisse - also on his way soon, with Absinthe. & Hadar's heading up in a week or so! Yowsa. Lots of snow still up in the mountains (be careful!), and in the towns. Get some, AK style...!
Sales/design meeting in Skytucky. Some fun and productive days in the spring slush at Steven's Pass, and around the bum fire. Axe wounds, good food, party Tosh, fast snow, slow snow, juicy lucys, pasta, testing news shreds,beers, hi fives...and so on..good times!
Our crew devours everything.
