Dan-O Sondergaard (Official Mt. Hood Academy Snowboard Co Shred-correspondant) has just sent us his first official expose of Mt. Hood on a budget. “No pass, no problem!” He and the homies have been busy in the woods skating and shredding to fight off the summer blues. Check out the photos below for a day in the life shreddy-dirtbag.
Camp Academy rounded out the 2013 season with a BANG! Pros and coaches and campers had a two day party in the park at Boreal Mt. Mother Nature gave us her total support with bluebird weather and sunshine for days. The snow soft and buttery, which was the perfect condition to throw yourself off kickers and onto boxes and rails with little regard for your own well being. Amongst the chucking, campers of all ages kept the Academy Snowboards manifesto alive by learning something new everyday.
To finish up strong, every camper was loaded up with so much free product thanks to all of our unbelievable sponsors. (Academy Snowboards, Boreal Mt. GoPro Cameras, Skull Candy, EFX, Dakine, Super Feet, Nixon, Neff, Flux, Cliff Bar, Vitamin Water, Air Blaster, 686, Gnarly, Snowboarder Mag, Arnette Goggles, Video Grass and Yo Beat!)
Thanks to all the campers, coaches and parents for helping this event happen, and make sure to sign up early for next years camp. We have a feeling with coaches like ours and a sponsor list like this, we will be at capacity…
Check you Jonas Michilot in his latest caper, “The Last One’s from Video Grass Productions” The teaser is epic and we can not wait for this to drop.
FLASHBACK FRIDAYS https://vimeo.com/55908718
Academy Snowboard Co. has been making some of the best snowboards for ten years now and over that time, we have had our fair share of awesome dudes and dudettes shred our boards. For many, we were their very first board sponsors and no matter where they are now, they are apart of our Academy family forever.
Flashback Fridays will be a weekly homage to all those who have helped make Academy what it is today. Have fun and follow along on this history of snowboarding.
