The creative transition constructed by Bear Mountain, Boreal, and Seven Springs for this year’s installment of Superpark was a perfect fit for the Arbor Snowboards team whose collectively inventive riding shone bright despite the ups and downs of East Coast spring weather. The Arbor Team are no slouches when it comes to sussing out unique lines and putting down proper tricks and during Superpark 19, they left their mark wherever they dropped in. Scotty Vine, perennial Superpark all-star earned the coveted Superpark Standout award for his ability to drop in and throw down in each SP zone, from the mighty Seven Springs hip to the Boreal hitching post to the Bear Mountain pole jam drop and beyond. Much better than reading about everything the Arbor crew accomplished is watching what went down, so sit back and enjoy the riding of Erik Leon, Mike Gray, Jared McDaniel, Mike Liddle, Blake Axelson, Ryland West, Jon McDonald, Sammy Blazeajewski, Buzz Holbrook, Scotty Vine, Cam Fitzpatrick, Tim Mackenzie, Brent Black and Walt.
Breaks in the weather were few and far between at Superpark 19. Fog, rain, and a heavy cloud cover characterized the majority of the week at Seven Springs, Pennsylvania. On the outset, these conditions seemed discouraging but in reality such disadvantages did not hinder, and in a way seemed to catalyze the camaraderie, creativity, and passion that came to life as a result of the event. Words cannot describe the energy felt at a gathering of so many motivated and likeminded individuals and a little bit of rain couldn’t inhibit the subsequent result.
Arbor riders from all corners of the country converged on an amazingly constructed setup for 5 days of non-stop shredding and the following video presents the long and short of what went down. Thanks to everyone that came out including but not limited to Erik Leon, Mike Gray, Jared McDaniel, Mike Liddle, Blake Axelson, Ryland West, Jon McDonald, Sammy Blazeajewski, Buzz Holbrook, Scotty Vine, Cam Fitzpatrick, Tim Mackenzie, Brent Black and Walt.
We would like to congratulate Scotty Vine for taking home the Superpark Standout award. In this case, it was not insanely progressive or mind-boggling tricks that earned him the title. Instead, it was his proven ability to ride everything in his path combined with a work ethic unmatched at Superpark 19.
