We are a little late posting this, but our tardiness not withstanding, the RECESS wRECklESS Rail Jam is one of the most beloved events of the grassroots contest season. RECESS is a seminal shop and integral part of the community in the Southeast, a region that is rife with passion for its Appalachian resorts. On Saturday, February 27, a crew of southern snowboarders descended on Beech Mountain in North Carolina to put base to metal in the region’s biggest contest (with the biggest cash purse). Enjoy the video of the plentiful hams that went down at the jam. Big ups to RECESS, Beech, and all the event sponsors, Spy, CAPiTA, Union, Coal, Crab Grab, 686, Stance, Vans, Red Bull, Dakine, and Interior Plain Project. Here at SNOWBOARDER, we are stoked we got to support the wRECklESS Rail Jam in 2016!
