Rob creates the graphics for his Compatriot Valkyrie right before your very eyes. From his house to riding it on fresh powder. Rob shows you how to get it done. That’s 40 hours of footage compressed into 3 minutes. Whew.
It’s been a long, hot summer, friends. But the end is near (grab a beer!). Winter will soon be here. Compatriot Harry Kearney has been maximizing the long days and getting ready for winter. He sent over this photo from Red Mountain Pass from this past spring and had this to say, “So the snow was horrendous at that time in spring, massive dry spell, so we were trying to get creative and went and shot at night. Everything about it was sketchy but the method felt right. Its up on Red Mountain Pass. Fun time. Its been a summer of Sabbath for me man!“
Harry Kearney’s Top 3 Albums of Summer ’12:
Bryce Yamasaki rode all season strong on a 158 Rob Kingwill Valkyrie getting first place in Mt Hood Bone Zone Banked Slalom and a rad feature in the current issue of Shred NW Magazine. Do you need more power and camber out of your board like Bryce? Tired of whack and trendy technology that does nothing to little for your riding? Ride with us. Thanks, Bryce.
More from Kingwill and his epicly good times at Tailgate Alaska. The photo of Rob and Mikey Basich pretty much sums it up. Smiles all around, with good friends. Thinking of going next year? You should. Resorts in Alaska, The Northwest and California are still open. Get out before it all flows into the streams.
Harry Kearney just in from the last month of getting buck in the white room and grocery shopping with the mini cart. Slushy snow and sun might be the call now or heading to Hawaii or Mexico to stick your feet in the sand. I think Harry will just be skateboarding and listening to metal. Probably the new High on Fire album. Harry, what’s the call?
Kinger stretching it out.
Tailgate Alaska. Wish you were here. The pilgrimage is always worth it. Just ask Kinger.
Winter isn’t quite over yet. I know the lifts have stopped spinning in Jackson Hole, but they are saying 2-3 feet of fresh in Tahoe by saturday morning. It’s always winter somewhere, and thankfully, we’ve still got some white stuff coming down in North America. Lifts, sleds, helicopters, snow shoes – get out and get some before it’s too late.
