High Cascade Snowboard Camp @ Mountain Creek, NJ !!

17 February 2014, 09.23 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

High Cascade, by far the raddest snowboard camp ever, has partnered with Mountain Creek to bring all the excitement, coaching and camp experience to New Jersey.  Several activities, workshops and clinics are available for riders of all abilities.  The terrain park is off the hook with tons of perfectly shaped jumps, boxes, handrails and a 1/2 pipe that will blow your mind.  It’s only 1 hour from New York City.  And get this: there’s an indoor skate bowl too!  So get dialed in with High Cascade. Who knows it could be you representin’  the USA in the 2018 Winter Olympic games in PyeongChang, South Korea!

Mountain Creek is going off!

09 January 2014, 03.02 | Posted in Snowboarding | No comments »

Just 2 days before 2014 kicked off we hit up Mountain Creek for a nighttime sesh.  Olympic medalist and all around rad guy, Danny Kass, grew up shredding this mountain so you know it’s the real deal!

The Terrain Park was going off with perfect fluid jumps & well constructed rails and the excitement was in the air.  This New Jersey snowboard park was voted #1 on the East Coast by Snow Magazine.

It’s just an hour away from Manhattan and is by far the place to get some air this winter.

And this weekend Burton presents “Party in the Park”

Brandon “Boner” Bonner Interview

08 October 2013, 01.08 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

On his license, a medical marijuana card or even a police report his name would appear as Brandon Bonner. The skateboard industry knows him as Boner and he’s been shredding every handrail, gap, ledge and transition from Fredericksburg to Denver to Las Vegas to Los Angeles to Mexico City with passion that Lizard King would back, no doubt.

What’s the best thing about living in Fredericksburg?

I would say that the best part about living in the town of Fredericksburg is that you have a lot of adventuring to do there are a lot of ins and outs about this joint

You just had your truck painted. What color did you go with?

I had my old whip painted Matt black all stealthy like n shit bumping them splines all day

We were able to skate Miami together on a filming mission last December. Tell us about the trip.The backyard pool, etc. That was so rad skating with Danny, Paul & Koki.

The Mia get away was amazing just to get away from the nasty winter that the good old town had coming for us and just meeting amazingly talented skateboarders from all around the world and to have them be as stoked  to shred with them was sick deffenitly got a lot of homies I met up with there. And the gnarly outdoor hotel pool we got to shred was so dope we deffenitly seabed the hell out of that thing!

Tell us about Magic Bullet. It’s definitely one of the corest shops in the entire east coast.

Magic bullet is a really good locally provided shop that will for sure still be selling boards to the community for many more years to come witch in fact this last month was there 11 year anniversary so shot outs to mark Eyestone for keeping it real all these years!!

That Canadian Embassy ollie hit national news. How was that having the network drive from DC to Fredericksburg to interview you?

The interview at the local skate park that hit international was a little rediculous but very well out together everyone that was at brooks deffenitly seemed a little taken by it haha but very professional !

The NK video is dropping Spring 2014. I’ve seen your footage from a few of the last tours. How are you feeling about this part? You’re first NK part was off the hook!

I feel like my skills and diversity of my tricks might have changed a bit but I hope that I’m still bringing the pain enough to keep the Viewers as hyped as I will be about it!!
