It’s the 3rd Annual Gremlin Gamez and you either know or you don’t. April 20th at the ASI haunted tunnels.
Every other Thursday night, beginning today (March 14th) through April 25th, swedish streetwear brand, WeSC and famed skateshop based in Williamsburg Brooklyn, KCDC, will host a SkateNight for those 21+ to come out and shred at the Villain Warehouse on North 3rd St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
WeSC x KCDC Skate Night, will conclude on April 25th, when WeSC takes over North 3rd. St to host their own skate party…..a party for the masses. With sponsors including PBR, Red Bull, 5BORO NYC, Nixon, Villain, and Lodge, this six-part event is one no boarder would want to miss.
Last Sunday was the final stop of Video Games at Okemo Mountain. It was also the first ever east Coast Grenade Games and Danny Kass and The Dingo flew out to help judge the park portion of the event. For a late March day, the mountain was still pretty cold and had boatloads of snow. Teams from all over New England came out to represent. Videos and voting for the final stop won’t be out for a minute yet, but it was no surprise, the dudes from Big Buck Hunter had already put in so much work, they walked away with the top spot that day. Yepp, they’re all goin to Puerto Rico, lucky bastards, half of em don’t even surf! Whatever, I’d be sippin that fine stuff and layin in the sun myself… Hell, that’s what they plan on doing anyways. They deserved it but don;t forget about some of the other notables like the all female Mascara Militia or the Maine boys from LV Supreme. We’ll keep ya posted when the vids drop. For now, check out all the action you missed last weekend below. Look out for Video Games next year, gonna be twice as rad!

Always a fun day with the Rome dudes. Sorry outsiders, you gotta be a shop kid to partake. Bring your pay stub and all that jazz, they’ll handle the food tix and beer.
This weekend is the final Video Games stop and the East Coast Grenade Games stop at Okemo. Sunday the 24th it’s on and $40 gets ya a loft ticket and a chance at the action. DON’T MISS OUT!
So it wasn’t exactly the type of day you’d want for a park comp, but what the hell, it’s snowboarding and sometimes you just gotta run with it. Back To The Boneyard V went down on Tuesday under good old New England flat skies and powder conditions. It snowed at least 6-8″ before the comp started and didn’t let up but only a few times throughout the day. Pat Moore wasn’t there but the proceeds still went to his charity and despite the conditions there was still a pretty talented turnout. The hip was rock solid but it didn’t stop some decent sized amplitude and the park crew had a pretty solid setup for the rail section too. Despite being a Boneyard event, everything went down in Exhibition (here we go haters), but I gotta say, the mountain was setup proper with top to bottom parks and a fun little park over on South Street too. By the end of the afternoon it was a full on dumping and the camera wasn’t really too stoked/pretty much shit the bed… so the pics got blurry and sucked. But we still got a few decent ones so it’s worth a look anyways. At the end of the day props went to Tyler Davis, Casey Willax and whoever took third. There were a bunch of other prizes and stuff, plus free PBR so it was a win win for everybody. Always a good chill event.
Even the Mainers are getting into the action. The banked slaloms are making a comeback with the departure from the east of the Open, Dew Tour and all that other jive. Sugarloaf hosts their own contest this Saturday and Sunday the 23rd and 24th.
It’s year three of Smokin’ Snowboards Annual event “The Gathering” up at Jay Peak in Vermont on April 19th and 20th. First of all, it’s Jay peak so you know it’s gonna be kick ass spring riding in April. Secondly there’s keg parties food, lift tix and a place to crash for 2 days and nights all for just $100 if you purchase in advance. Do I really need to even stress how much fun this is gonna be. Look at the damn flyer if you don’t believe me. See you up there.
5 years and going strong. Pat Moore’s Back To The Boneyard is one of the sickest contests on the east and hands down one of the most fun. All proceeds benefit the Pat Moore Scholarship Fund to help kids reach their goals through snowboarding so it really doesn’t get much better than that. $30 gets you an entry fee, t-shirt and a day full of shenanigans. PBR hooked it up for the apres party and you know the prizes will be funny as well. March 19th it’s goin down at Waterville.
$17 lift tickets for Crotched this Saint Patricks day only and you gotta buy online now. Does it come with a free beer? I don;t think so but with all the money you’re saving, you oughta be able to get yourself a sixer on the ride up.
The first East Coast Arbor Faceoff went down last weekend. The skies were bluebird, riding was dope and the park setup, very proper. Ian Sams and Erik Leon made the trip out from the west coast to help judge in the 50 degree day at Cranmore. Riders did a 60 minute jam and then went head to head bracket style until the top 3 were chosen. Big Bobby Hallowell took home $600 for first, Christian Manhard second and Justin Melanson third. It was one hell of an awesome day and everybody left with a dope goggle tan at the least. Check the pics below.
