This is an eerie vid clip made all the more eerie with the back ground music from Robin Trower. This shows my age, Robin Trower is known to be one of the 70′s best guitar players. I haven’t smoked pot in over 20 years now, but this music almost brings back the high. Just slought back in a chair, make you eyes like slits, and travel back in time with Robin Trower to the 70′s…Hold on here, Snowboarding wasn’t around in the 70′s I’ve mixed and rewritten history in Shoreline’s image. Wow that was very post modern of me!
Local makers of the Ralston Snowskates put on a great event, well run, good course, and the biggest in prizes, ever for a snowskate event. Sierra at Tahoe once again creating a very good park for the snowskaters to show off their tricks. Mark your Calander Febuary 7th 2010, at Sierra at Tahoe for the 2010 Ralston Cup.
I am writing from Winter Park, CO. We are competing here tomorrow and Friday in U.S. Freestyle Team Selections. Men’s qualification starts Wednesday and Friday at 12:15 PM Mountain Time (2:15 PM East Coast and 11:15 AM West Coast). Men’s finals is scheduled to start at 2:45 PM but that is subject to change based on how the event runs. There is going to be a run order on the website so it will you should be able to tell who is going and when I go. I will be running 40th in the run order and I will be wearing bib #67.
I am very excited to compete. Training has been going well and everything is coming together. The top two overall finishers from the two day event will get U.S. C Team spots. The top overall finisher from the two days will also get to ski the American World Cups inDeer Valley, UT and Lake Placid, NY. Thank you for your love and support. I will let you know how the week goes.
Yes, its true, lake Tahoe’s Number one Snowboard Shop, just got a shout out from Freeskier Magazine. Freeski magazine recognized Shoreline of Tahoe as the best freeride ski shop in South Lake Tahoe, they went on to talk about our great selection of twin tip skis, and expert advice. Wow this was a great surprise for us, we really try our best, to give the best service, and information to all who seek to improve their mountain experience. Skier or Snowboarder, we want to equip you with the gear that the Ski or snowboard industry has to offer. To us its like being the best match maker, a marriage of sorts. We listen to what our customers are saying, how they ski, where they ski, how often they ski, problems their having, and the direction they want to go with their skiing. We marry the skiers flesh and bones, to wood and metal so they can become one with their skis. This is how we became # 1 in both Skiing and snowboarding.
I’ve got short legs, so my pants more then most drag on the ground on my way to the hill. Muddy parking lots, puddles, and Bath room germs all can be found on cuffs on my pants. The cuffs of my pants are the first area of my pants to rip apart, as they drag across the ground. The Sessions “elevator cuffs” easily lift up your cuff up to avoid all the hazards your cuff will encounter. In my opinion, this is one of the best features I’ve seen in years! Check out a pair at Shoreline soon.
