Well… Thats it for another season of The Snowboard Realms . The last week I’ve been uploading videos to our new future home .. and it’s pretty crazy to see where these videos came from to what they are now .
I personally would like to talk everyone who watches the videos , I hope they are as fun for you to watch as they are as fun for me to make ..

I also want to thank my Sponsors for letting me travel around making these little movies for you . so Thank you .. and now the teaser for our superpark edit..

I really Enjoy the Grenade Games.
It’s more of a giant party than a snowboard contest , and since this is the case , I figured I would show you a little more of the party scene than I did last year . Monster and crew do a pretty good job of making and uploading videos each day of the contest , but they don’t get right in there like we here at the snowboard realms do … Huge thanks to Guest filmer Sean Tedore , and all of our friends for hangin and being a part of the video ..
Thank you Danny , Grenade , Monster and Crew .
here are a few images from the weekend
sometimes a party is in order
Shred Unity day in tahoe , this is what snowboarding is about , people from different areas and different styles coming together and hanging out , a bbq , some park laps and some bar hangin .
1 day in tahoe was super fun. Thanks Bond
for flying me out for the day .
2 days and a whole lot of doubles … double thing double that , even in the jib session we saw some doubles … sure it was someone falling twice on one thing but still … it was a double !! .
anyway a few days in 25 degree summer weather in april in quebec was pretty amazing ,
The contest was pretty much what we all expected ,
Congrats to CAPiTA’s Jess K, and Marie T for winning the womans jib jam
and to Drop’s Forest B. for taking the mens .
don’t forget to see how you can win that new stairmaster , Ill announce the winner in the super park episode the week of may 7th ish

Wow , sometimes contests can be a really good time and others….. you can show up and things just aren’t right !
I went up to Mt Seymour and the OMB “kids are alright” jam and then headed down to the shakedown by Seattle ,
A super weird jump , with a very flat landing . You’ll notice that there were a lot of falls on that jump .
Contests are a really good way to get your name out there though , Hitting local contests like the OMB jam and then moving up into contests like the shakedown. Letting people that can help you see your riding can help you go a long way .

hi ho hi ho its off to hokkaido we go ,
and when we got there so did the wind , sun and rain ..
what is usually one of the greatest pow trips of your life , was now a mission to try and find something to do. hours and hours of driving around towns searching for hand rails , most of them covered in 3 or 4 feet of snow . but thats part of being a pro snowboarder , making the most out of every situation .
