I spent the last ten days in Chile. Staying at a Resort called Valle Nevado, located 2 hours east of Santiago. We ended up getting really good snow and a couple days of sun.  We took a heli out to a zone that had these really cool chutes stacked one after the next. Definitely the best snowboard trip I’ve ever had in September.

Spent a couple days last winter in this little cabin north of Whistler. Did some snowmaching and hiking, rode some pretty good terrain. Nice to check out new zones with no pressure of producing footage or photos. looking forward to exploring some more zones this winter.

Before the Videograss premiere a couple of years ago a bunch of us got together and went out to a local watering hole to spread our wings a bit. Always good to spend a hot day at the river. Maybe a couple backflips, couple swan dives, a belly flop and a number of savage sunburns.

Yod Turkey and Lucy. The two of them live in Yoder’s truck, basically year round. I’ve found people who live in their car are usually great adventure companions. Short Sands, Ore. Early summer, when the warm sun still feels so foreign to your skin.

Often in the summer, Scotty will stop by my house on his way to work and we’ll sit on my porch and talk shit.

This swimming hole is on Wizard Island, the island in the middle of Crater Lake. If you ever go, take the early boat tour out to the island and get picked up 6 hours later. It’s a small island but has good fishing and a ton of cool swimming holes to explore.

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.

When I first moved to Oregon I thought it was strange that people called it “the coast” instead of “the beach”. It makes sense I guess, maybe because “the beach” seems like a place lined with homes and “the coast” seems like a place lined with forest.
