Bombing Big Bear
Snowboarding is super fun and going fast is super fun. When snowboarding you HAVE to learn to carve from edge to edge to be able to do it so stopping and slowing down is just part of the whole experience. With this comes the confidence to go fast, knowing you can slow yourself down at any time. There’s something about descending down a mountain at rapid rates of speed that is somewhat satisfying. Getting to the bottom and looking back up at what you have conquered. The cold air whipping at your face and hitting uneven surfaces in the snow that help get you that floaty feeling as you travel 15 ft hovering inches above the snow until you touch down again rushing down the mountain.

SRC Southridge Winter Series # 3
Rock drops, boulder gardens and birms snaking down the side of the mountain are just some of the things riders had to deal with and navigate through up in Southridge Park (Fontana, Ca) for the SRC Southridge Winter Series # 3. The event is a super grassroots event that attracts tons of riders of all different ages and skill levels.
The event lasts 2 days with various types of racing happening. Saturdays consist of a XC Race a Super D race and a 4-cross race. Sunday is the Downhill Race. The race is broken up into several different age groups and within those they have riders competing in different classes. They have a beginner, amateur and pro division. It is also seperated into men’s and women’s divisions.
Trucks full of bike equipment and riders filled the parking lot and vendor booths were set up offering anything from handlebars to bike jerseys to pictures. The hustle and bustle of the race, I was in some type of new world. A mountain bike world of racers and I did not know what to expect.
I hiked the race course to check it out. Practice was going on and riders were shredding the course to pieces. I did not know how much abuse and how much terrain a mtn bike could navigate through but I hiked past boulder garden after boulder garden. Riders hucked there bikes into the air boosting themselves over boulders and rock quarry’s. There was a rock drop and several different types of birmed corners some snaking down the mountain. I was impressed. The course seemed pretty gnarly.
The race was freaking awesome and it made me want to get a mtn bike really really badly. Not that I didn’t already want one. Anyways I will definitely be at future races. Until next time adrenaline junkies. – Leecifer

This video is nothing but radical. Snowboarding taken back down to the roots. Check out the sickest boards I have ever seen and some long board style pack runs even.
While you might be thinking about buying a new snowboard one basic design comes into mind with some slight variations between boards however Spring Break Snowboards is changing the game by going back to the roots of it all.
Corey Smith cut his shapes out of a piece of wood, fiber glassed, painted it and epoxied it and then went to shred. “This enabled me to look at the mountain and look at snowboarding from a different perspective and you know, just really enjoy it” said Corey Smith, Creator of Spring Break snowboards.
The shredding in this video is so old school and so basic, yet such a fun video to watch.
“Building and riding these boards has been one of the most best experiences I’ve had snowboarding.” said Corey Smith, creator of Spring Break snowboards. “Building these boards was just like one of the best experiences for me as far as, just falling back in love with snowboarding. I think I was just so over it, filming video parts every year.”
The minimum donation to get one of these custom made boards is $500 and it includes a 1 year warranty against breaking.

Sometimes skating through the mist can be a pretty fun experience. It’s nice to have a change every once in a while.

Snowboard season is finally here!
Months before the mountains open thoughts of shredding the mountains fill our one track minds. The anticipation is painful. The days are being counted down. Each rainfall brings hope as well as disappointment. Mountains and resorts throughout the United States have already opened, however it is finally time for southern California to join the party. Mt high has officially opened as of 8am this morning. The party has started and every boarder is excited to join in.
