Our friends over at Skate Like a Girl are working with the Seattle Girl’s School and are going snowboarding like a girl this winter and need your help! If you are a girl, interested in either a paid or volunteer position instructing up at the Summit at Snoqualmie, please check this out!
So now that the competitive season’s pretty much done, everyone’s in a bum rush to get their video sections/photo shoots out of the way before the water starts to get cold and the wetsuits have to be brought out. The last couple weeks I’ve been filming quite a bit with Spencer Norris, a videoographer from the Northwest who moved to Orlando to capture his riders full time. I was in his video last year also, but with his move and ever changing outlook on his movies, I’m soo stoked for the new one to come out in spring. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates and teasers, and on the premier that’ll be in Seattle. In addition to that, I’ve been shooting for a couple of the mags and an online site a friend of mine put together. If I can figure it out, there should be a video of my roommates and I attached to this post – I’ll be the blonde guy. Was a pretty gnarly day out when they shot, but the guys at thewakeplace.com made it turn out alright.
Check it, hope you like it.
