Last Spring we went to Norway to end the year with a fun trip for Nitro. Knut is Norwegian and set up the whole trip. We went to his Dad’s house, borrowed his dad’s boat and adventured around the Fjords, hiking from the water, snowboarding, fishing and camping. The day before we were flying out a friend who does the wardrobe for Metallica told us she got us all VIP tickets to the show is Oslo the next day. We all changed our tickets, drove 13 hours through the night and went straight to the show. It was amazing, we met the band, ate their food backstage and went apeshit front row. After the show, we were hanging in this little room scamming some food and drinks, about to leave, when Robert Trujillo busted in to the room, “I heard some pro snowboarders were here”. He was under the impression Terje was with us I guess, pretty funny. He talked about how he was super into snowboarding and would go quite a bit when they aren’t on tour. He asked if we knew Johan, told us he was his favorite. This trip was incredible, so many amazing memories. Knut really knows how to plan a trip!

Last fall Austin, Curtis Ciszek, Shaun Mckay, IIkka Backstrom, Justin Eeles and myself went down to Baja for a week or so. We scored good waves everyday. Nice way to end summer, surf 4 times a day and get extremely sunburned.

Ultra Natural Quiver. It was incredible to snowboard with the top dudes for a week at Baldface. I remember riding this specific run so vividly: Terje, Temple and Jamie were hauling ass in front of me through this tight gully bordered by a shitload of trees, riding it like a halfpipe, people flying everywhere, smashing into pillows, bonking trees, not worrying about the other guys, just full trust in each other’s ability and forsight for what the other would do next. Words can’t really describe it and video wouldn’t do it justice. It was something you had to feel. I rode sun up to sundown everyday for a week with my childhood heroes. Thank you Snowboarder mag for the best vacation of my life.
