Summer Essentials

This weekend marks the “unofficial” start of summer. No school, pool days, ice cream trucks, and long nights. Plus, an opportunity to extend your season.

Before running out the door to Mt. Hood, Oregon, Whistler, BC, or a glacier don’t forget your “Summer Essentials”. Your gear on the glacier is just as important as the SPF and we’ve got the perfect kit for you.

The WWW, is a party under your feet. Built with “Tweekend” technology, get maximum press and float all summer long. Pair that up with the Hurrithane binding and Darko boot and you’ve got a match made in heaven.

Just because winter is coming to a close in the northern hemisphere doesn’t mean that your season has too. Look under the couch cushions, mow a few extra lawns, or up the price of your lemonade stand (we know you’re neighbor can afford it) and grab the essentials. See you on the mountain.

The day before the day has come and here I sit at home in California before a wave of vintage stoke consumes Boreal Mountain Resort on Tahoe’s Donner Summit. It wont be long before K2’s team of rippers join snowboard lovers old and new in the legendary hand dug Donner half pipe to celebrate the roots of freestyle snowboarding which run deep here in Northern California. Inspired by the surf and skate lifestyle, snowboarding in Tahoe took on a personality of its own and this year rather tomorrow, March, 27 2015 we’ll see a glimpse of what started this whole passion we share called snowboarding. Stay tuned for blog updates, social media insights and shenanigans along the way as we pay our respects to the OG and help foster a history we all appreciate so much.

Lookout for your favorite K2 athletes: Jake Kuzyk, Mat Belzile, Tim Eddy, Leanne Pelosi, Johnny Brady, Mark Wilson, Chris Beresford, Alex Rodway, Danika Duffy and a full on K2 legend we’ll keep anonymous for now…

 

K2 Snowboarding Welcomes Jody Wachniak to Canadian Pro Team

K2 Snowboarding is pumped to announce the addition of versatile rider Jody Wachniak to its Canadian Pro Team. With roots in Whistler, British Columbia, Jody’s flawless style and technique make him a versatile rider who crushes urban riding, as well as park and backcountry shredding.

“I couldn’t be more hyped to have Jody on the team,” said Taylor Ricci, K2 Canadian Team Manager. “The kid is one of the good guys and his positive personality is contagious. Welcome to the family Jody, it’s been a long time coming.”

Hailing from Oakbank, Manitoba, with fellow K2 athlete Jake Kuyzk, Jody and Jake grew up shredding their local hill – Springhill Winter Park – together through high school and ride together as much as they possibly can.

“Jody is one of my oldest friends and we grew up snowboarding together,” said Jake. “As years went on and our snowboarding progressed, we were led in different directions with different sponsors. I’m so hyped to see Jody on K2. We are finally on the same team now.”

Graduating early from high school thanks to the extra credits he earned from playing in jazz band, Jody moved straight to Whistler to take his riding to the next level. His versatile skills and charismatic personality make him the perfect addition to the talented K2 Canadian Team.

“I’m so hyped to be part of a company and team that promotes snowboarding as a good time and has been supporting snowboarding for over 25 years,” said Jody. “I’m looking forward to being a part of this family – thanks K2.”

Riding the Fastplant and Lien Bindings, Jody joins the Canadian team that includes: Blair McKinney, Matts Kulisek and Taylor Godber.
