BTW, THE MERRILL DOUBLE QUARTERPIPE INVITATIONALS ARE NEXT WEEK
Can't believe it's been 5 years since I started the first mini pipe invitational. It's changed a lot over the years and I can't wait to see what it becomes in the future.

Get at me if you think you should of been invited and haven't been because I haven't sent out invitations yet Thanks for the continued support @billabong_snowboarding @salomonsnowboards @anonoptics @highcascade @snowboardermag And thanks for the amazing artwork @zeach_man
