Ride Snowboards team dudes Austin Hironaka, John Shaw and Seth Kitzke hit up the parks of California in the second episode of this neat li’l web series. Peep for sweet park ripping.
This is how they break this episode down…
So we got a little impatient waiting for snow in Washington so decided to road trip down to Mammoth Mountain for opening day. On our way down we thought it would be fun to take a pit stop and ride Boreal for a few days to get some early season shots, while working out all the kinks before Mammoth opening day.
After riding Boreal for 2 full days, we headed to Mammoth to meet up with Ride regional rider Chuck Evans. We rode three great days at Mammoth and got to party with Chuck for the opening day festival. As soon as we woke up the next morning we headed north to Portland to meet up with Brian Fox and pick up Hironaka’s first snowmobile. Once we got Hiro’s sled, we drove up to Mt. Baker for a super deep opening day.
Shout out to SixEleven Productions for getting ‘Ride With Us’ off the ground and running strong last season. Mike Peterson, the main man and filmer behind SixEleven, went back to school and couldn’t shoot season 2. Look for the SixEleven crew to make appearances in RWU episodes this season.
