I got the chance to ride three different shred spots this summer. First stop was Blackcomb to ride the public park after the demise of Camp of Champions. I hooked up with Blair McKinney and we weren't sure what to expect but it was super fun and the park was well maintained. We spent a lot of time day tripping to Vancouver to skate our favorite park at Ambleside. The rest of the time was spent hiking or chilling at lakes. Next I met up with the VG squad down at Woodward Copper Mtn. The park was super fun and the magic carpet makes riding there a dream. We golfed and mini golfed heavy between shredding the park. The last stop was a quick trip to Mt. Hood to ride with the thirtyTwo and Etnies squad. We camped at Clear lake and skated Windell's. The super pipe at HCSC was perfect and the public park laps at Timberline were a highlight. Stoked to be able to get to shred all summer at a variety of epic places.
