The lucky souls who have made the pilgrimage to the holy land of summer snowboarding are currently cashing in on the perks of the Northwest. It’s late July, sun and snow is still abundant, and if that isn’t “eneff” to convince you to make a trip out to Windells, the Neff team, including the likes of Dylan Thompson, Tim Humphreys, E-Man, Rap Game Viktor Simco, and Brady Larson were on their annual crusade to take over all camp activities. Also, if you weren’t aware, summer on the glacier provides a perfect habitat for snowboarding’s crustacean-based brand, Lobster. The crew, including Halldor Helgason and Eiki Helgason, hosted games of S.K.A.T.E. and brought loads of ice cream for campers to munch on after dining at Wally Inouye’s, camp famous delicatessen.
Viktor Simco hosted Ollies of Alzheimers to raise awareness among campers and camp employees. Harrison Gordon took the on hill portion, while the skate portion was snatched up by Jesse Paul. Participants received loads of Neff product and rumor has it Versace and Dolce & Gabana are now in contract negotiations with the two winners.
In the lane, Eiki, Halldor, and the rest of the Neff team cruised around with campers all week while enjoying seemingly infinite lines around the park that Trevor Borelli and the rest of the Windells Digger Crew continue to scheme up. Late session winds and slightly cooler temperatures brought relief from the summer heat, all thanks to Denis Leontyev spinning about the lane, as the session came to a close. Expect warmer temperatures in the next couple days as our media crew cooks up the sessions heaters into a fiery stew.
