Catching Up with Brendan Gerard
So the weather has been pretty bunk in Tahoe obviously. I finished up working on our entry for the Boreal Team Video Challenge, which our team of Jake Devine, Andrew Brewer, Danyale Patterson, and I have won.
I headed down to LA to shoot a new ad campaign for Sabre Eyewear. That went great, we shot it on the beach in Venice, no complaints. Following the shoot I headed over to COMUNE clothing companies’ Drop City artist premiere always a good time.
After a little SoCal sun I headed back north and then a little east over to Colorado to visit the fam in Summit County. We definitely did some family shredding and I struggled to keep up with my 11-year old freakishly good brother Red.
My close friend Ryan Scardigli called me up Christmas day and said he was coming into town to do a story for Method Magazine and Snowboarding Australia on urban snowboarding around Denver. So we spent the next week really cracking trying to get some content together and had a lot of success thanks to the help of locals Brendan Barry, John Hill, Jackson Fowler, and Billy Mackey. Our productive crew got a little too productive and found ourselves in Clear Creek County Jail for a couple nights. It was a surprisingly hospitable experience.
Anyhow, lots of mischief and mayhem in between and plenty of more to come!
