Hey Guys, Robbie Walker here. Just got back from a great family trip to wrap up the end of the season down here in Australia and put a few shots up on my BLOG. Hope everyone is doing great!

Ole Ole Ole! It’s that time of the year….catalog shoot time. So while many of you are probably trying to squeeze in the last few days of float life, BBQ’s, beaches, bikini’s, warm weather surf and all those other wonderful things about summer. We decided to end it early and take some of the team down to Chile to shoot the 2011.12 Catalog, and what can we say? Such a good decision!
First met up with K2 Staff Photographer and video cameo master Mike Yoshida. Between the two of us we had around 14 bags including our photo gear. Packed everything into my girfriend’s Subaru. Not enough room for me and Mike so we had to get a cab as well. Good times. Then we had an interesting challenge of trying to get 10 bags of product onto a jumper flight to LAX. Thanks to the counter ladies at United for the straight hook up! We met the majority of the rest of the crew in Los Angeles which consisted of Jordan Mendenhall, Travis Parker, Gretchen Bleiler, Leanne Pelosi, and one of our filmers for the trip Sam Hiltner. 13 hours, a quick stop in Lima, some delicious wine, and a couple Advil PM’s and we were in Santiago.
The drive up from Santiago to the Farallones area is a fun one. Over 39 counted switch backs on a road not much wider than your car in some areas climbing around 4,000 feet. We arrived at our house for the trip right next to El Colorado Resort, one of the first houses to built up here. Farallones is next to four resorts El Colorado, Valle Nevado, La Parva, and Farallones. Every window has a view of the Andes. Not bad.
But now looking forward to a great week! Not the powder we expected, but can’t beat the sunshine. Stay tuned for updates as much as we can. Internet is a pretty rare commodity up here.
Here it is boys and girls, a sneak peak into June’s issue of Snowboarder Mag set to hit the stands on June 16. Australia’s finest, the “legend” Robbie Walker highlights the magazine complete with a dope cover shot to accompany his contribution as Guest Editor; you’re probably gonna want to read this one.
Congratulations Robbie, keep on it, man!
