Lucas Debari is the modern day Mt. Baker Hardcore. For those of you who may not know the Mt. Baker Hardcore you’ve got some homework to do. Made up of legendary riders such as Craig Kelly, Tex Davenport, Mike Ranquet and Dan Donnelly the Mt. Baker Hardcore grew up shredding Mt. Baker with full-on punk rock style. These boys were followed by guys like Jamie Lynn and currently with riders like Lucas Debari and Kael Martin who maintain the incredible lore of the original crew. Stay connected to snowboarding’s roots and thus preserve the insanity, the peacefulness and the majesty that is the “sport” we love. Look back at what the GO! crew did last year and be on the lookout for the full release coming Fall 2013.

Back in February we announced the winner of K2′s Seek & Enjoy photo contest and this past weekend that lucky winner joined us for 72 hours of snowboarding, golf, movies, pizza, ice cream and a hell of a lot more laughing than thirty minutes of Saturday Night Live could ever provide.
Chosen specifically by K2 Pro Jake Kuzyk, Dylan Cook (13 yrs old) made his way out from Minnesota on Friday to meet Jake, Matt Belzile and Alex Beebe, it was clear from the first five minutes that Dylan deserved this trip. Reminding him of himself when he was young Dylan held down conversations with Jake about proper style, who he thought was riding well these days and why and which tricks his favorite riders were doing in all the movies since 2009. Despite questionable weather conditions Dylan backed up his knowledge of snowboarding with his own ability trailing Jake through all the side hits and rails Whistler’s Black park had to offer.
The crew at K2 really appreciated having you Dylan, we hope you’ll let snowboarding continue to take over your life as it has ours. STOKED!

Like snowboarding in the spring? Like retro gear? Who likes apre’? Want to mix them all together this weekend at Stevens Pass, Washington along with everyone else who enjoys the exact same things? Well you’re all invited so dust off those vintage boards and one-piece suits for a day of debauchery and ridiculousness. Prizes, beer, sun, more prizes, more beer and more sun are waiting.
Wille Yli-Luoma is known for going huge on a snowboard. As an original member of the Forum 8 Wille came to K2 over 10 years ago and now as he transitions away from professional snowboarding he’s going just as big with his coffee business. As the owner of Heart in Portland, OR Wille’s coffee is gaining recognition world wide. Check it out as Wille brews up a good ol cup from our house at Mt. Baker.
Here’s to waking up and going snowboarding!
WE HAVE A WINNER! Dylan Cook has been chosen by Jake Kuzyk for his photo that most resembled Jake’s definition of Seek & Enjoy. ”My friends and I used to do this exact same thing in the summer all the time when we were younger. Its a perfect example of making a good time out of whatever you got,” says Jake.
Congrats Dylan we’ll see you in Whistler.
