Wanted: April 2014

Boy what a fun season 2013/2014 turned out to be! Ring in the last days of riding with some good ol'fashion spring boarding. To have you better prepared for the sun, here is the April's wanted list, starting out with a pair of proper Bib pants from Travis Rice at Quiksilver. Top off your head with a cyclops trucker hat from Poler Stuff and a slab of sport sunscreen from Badger. Tuk'in a Saturdays Angus shirt and pull up your Jed Anderson, Howl gloves over your sleeves so no snow gets in. Once you have your outfit all sorted pack a picnic for you and your friends in the trusty Yeti. Don't forget to bring up your disposable camera to capture some good times and lastly, save your eyes with some glasses from SALT eyewear.    That's all for now, have fun kids. - Caley V

Grouse Park x Pacific Boarder Park Jam

We had another Park Jam this past weekend, albeit a foggy one. Pacific Boarder hosted this one, providing the goods and grilled cheese sandwiches, while Sam Masih manned the mic as usual. Even with the thick fog riders threw down their best.

Did someone say fog?

Gotta get that #selfie in

To the top

Frosty had a day off so he decided to join in on the jam

The box, tube and down tube were open for business

The fog made it look like the park was empty

Grilled cheese and prizes courtesy of Pacific Boarder

Special delivery...Bread was running out so a quick call was made

Spreading the stoke

Grilled zeech sandwich. Good effort though

Mr Nathan Roberts...Maybe you've seen him pulling double cork 9's on the cut jumps lately?

Zac Dolesky's back from a torn ACL, he'll be shredding the park to bits in no time

Daschel attempted his first tamedog at the jam

Bro, you forgot to strap in!

Until next time!
