Eric and I, thumbs up ferrr shurrrr

Pep and I, jump prep before sendin'er!


It's easy to get past the lame dialogue at the beginning since the filming/riding is pretty amazing. Makes biking look that much more appealing...

Thanks to Alex and Ian for introducinge me to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. Haven't heard a band that gets me yelling their lyrics at the top of my lungs in awhile, especially with their song "40 Day Dream". Highly suggest a listen. If Arcade Fire got you, then this surely will.

Just returned home from a week long stint in Aspen, CO, with my semi-recent new outerwear sponsor, Spyder. It was a super fun time being a part of such a rad team backed by a rad company. Met lots of new people, had some great meetings and shot some quality cat skiing and park shredding photos. Psyched to have a hand in what they're doing and looks like there is some top notch stuff in order for the future.
We had the largest company gathering to date for the company. Almost all the staff and all but two of the athletes were present. In the above photo we got Joss Christenson, Josh Bibby, myself, Julia Mancuso, Jake Zamansky, Daron Rhalves, TJ Lanning, Alex Schlopy, Mitch Gilman, Jess McMillan, Colby West, Ted Davenport, Chris Davenport, Roz Groenewoud and Duncan Adams. Missing a few others in there like my brother Steven, Julian Carr and Tommy Moe. I think we've got a pretty solid roster...
Putting together a Nimbus Point & Shoot edit of the trip so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Thanks Spyder for letting me be a part of the company!!

Evan Hecox (for incase)...[bite]

Ripped this one off of the Surface blog-o-sphere, but that's okay (I know them!!). Haven't been doing much wave catching on the www, but seems as if they have, so thanks for that. Here is a solid little video from the realm outside of skiing. It's good to catch some fresh air...

Under the Rug

Been hammering out some time on my skis the past couple of weeks. It's been good in the Wasatch and we've been working hard to get our share. Nimbus Independent's first webisode of the season will be coming out in less than a week and I'm pumped to see what Eric has put together.
Just got in from another day of snowmoskiing with Joel "Jah Raven" Whalen. It was a decent day as things regularly go, but not quite par in comparison to our current standard.

Anyway friends, this post is more a quick update than anything interesting. Some good content is right around the corner...

And that is a photo of my bathroom rug made out of plastic bags. I like it.

Nimbus Independent's Point & Shoot series

Been editing non-stop the past two days for Nimbus' new series called Point & Shoot. There should be an official release about the series in the coming weeks, but as for now, stay tuned to for almost daily videos of our happenings.
Back to editing. Rendering sucks and is extremely boring...

Here's thinking of you Jordan Seldin...
