True Life – Photos posted of East Coaster Andrew Kelly

Attached are two shots sent in by Andrew Kelly from this past summer on his WWW Rocker. He spent his time working at a shop in the Falls Creek area of Australia (a few hours from Melbourne) and shredding with his crew. Stop by some of the K2 Snowboarding dealers throughout the PA,DE,MD,DC area this season and you just might bump into AK hanging out at a preseason sale or giving a super-charged snowboard clinic. Just watch out for all the
Aussie slang he learned while ‘down-unda’…

Willie is a Copernicus of the Coffee bean, I had some of his prototype Java at a party a while ago, I was a big fan and I'm not even good with algebra. If you're ever in Portland, check out Heart on 22nd and Burnside in the hip Southeast.

K2 Snowboard Team in Chile

NEVADOS1 copyESPN and Colin Wiseman start to show how was Chillin’ in Chillan this summer on one of the greatest mountains of the southern hemisphere.  La Parva, Termas de Chillan where amazing terrains to go from urban park sessions to the best freeriding.

” … Termas de Chillan — the second stop of our trip after a day at La Parva — was more like a carnival ride than anything. The attendant handed you a poma, waited for the thumbs up, then pulled a green handle. The poma then shot forward, lurching once over the first bullwheel and speeding up to a left-hand turn to access the extensive alpine and network of surface lifts that seemed to go on forever. Right: Our local hookup and shop owner Sebastien had taken me and Aaron Robinson on a whiteout tour of the backside the previous day, pointing out where not to drop in order to avoid closeout chutes and other kinds of certain doom. When Tim Eddy (pictured) and Chris Beresford said they were looking for a natural quarter, thanks to Sebastien, I knew just the spot. (Colin Wiseman )”

Shaun's part had more champagne powder riding then in years past, but don't worry, he still hunts the Notthwest sloppy chunder, and likes to burn sleds. Nice Try was a quality flick and I suggest it to the snowboarder who likes an upbeat snappy video with some kick to it.

If you though Louie's Part last year was fun, you'll be a fan of his part in Nice Try. If not you're probably a stick in the mud.
