Here is the final video to wrap up our season from last year in the Pacific Northwest, in our backyard. Hopefully these four videos have given an insiders look on what we did this year. We encourage you and your friends to seek out your own backyards and find fun things to snowboard on. Whether it be a couch, a slide at the local park, a hand rail, bike rack, two story building, snowy streets or powder, it’s all fun when you’re snowboarding so get out there and send er. You’ll be glad you did because snowboarding is always a good choice!
Shred with us this year in Whistler, BC and witness the filming for “Our Backyard” webseries hosted by Snowboardermag.com!
The mission is Seek & Enjoy so get out and explore your “backyard” and snap a photo of you doing so. We want to see what Seek & Enjoy means to you, the options are unlimited (no nudity or violence) but must include snowboarding in some way. Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll create a Seek & Enjoy photo album on our Facebook page and add your photos as they come in. Then on February 5, 2013 we’ll have K2 rider Jake Kuzyk personally choose the best photo and email the winner himself.
What happens if you’re better at hyping your photos than actually taking them you might ask…? As a second place prize we’ll be giving away a free pair of K2 Formula bindings to the person who’s photo receives the most likes on our Facebook page, so rally your buddies and make it happen.
You may only win once and winners will be replied to via email and Facebook so be sure to
subscribe to the K2 Snowboarding and the K2 Alliance Facebook pages during the Seek and Enjoy contest. The contest will officially end on February 5, 2013.
The Grand Finale of 2012 will culminate with footage from Shaun McKay, Leanne Pelosi and our great friend and brother Aaron Robinson and the Manifest crew. Plain and simple, snowboarding kicks ass and anyone lucky enough to ride is blessed with the opportunity. Enjoy snowboarding my friends because it straight up rules!
Chris Beresford and Steve Cartwright here for ya this afternoon. These two dudes have creativity and style practically unmatched. For more on Beresford check out Think Thank’s “Mind The Video Man” and Cartwright in Snowboard Canada’s 2012 release, “Relax.” These dudes rip!
Danny Larsen is not only a badass snowboarder, he’s full blooded metal head straight from the depths of Norway. Danny’s style is certainly unique and defined by the hard core music he rides to, check him out further in Video Grass’ “Enlighten”
Snowboarding is passion, snowboarding is inspiring and creative; it’s high fives and powder mustaches. Many of the best days to be had are in white out conditions, in the heart of the storm, yet fully comforted by the solitude of the trees. This is snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest, in our own backyard.
The true beauty of snowboarding, though, is that every person has they’re unique outlook and whether your backyard is Mt. Baker or a golf course in West Virginia we encourage you to explore that territory and reacquaint yourself with the comfort that snowboarding brings. The friendships that it strengthens and the excitement it instills.
Follow along as we portray our season every other Tuesday from now until the start of January. This is “Our Backyard,” where’s yours?
