Chas Guldemond Euro X Games Champion
We are excited to have Eternal Team member Chas Guldemond join us at The Freight House District to sign some Neff posters on Friday, September 30th for our premiere of the Rome movie “The Shred Remains.” Chas also gave us an update of what he has been up to all summer:
“This summer has been the best summer I have had in a really long time. I feel like I have done every activity that was ever invented. It started out with a lot of shredding first in mammoth for two weeks and then ended in Mt hood for three weeks. It was so fun shredding mammoth unbound park and hanging out with the kids at High Cascade was epic! During those five weeks I filmed the last two episodes of Dropping in with Chas and they came out great!
After all the shred I wanted to just enjoy the heat of the summer. I had bought a boat this past winter so it was time to get a lot of use out of it! My wife and I went on camping trips with friends and had endless wakeskate and wakeboard sessions. Like every summer my dirt bikes got dirty pretty often, every day I got free time at home I ripped to the top of Peavine peak and romped around the sick trails! I must say that my favorite thing about the whole summer was making so many new friends. They have introduced me to so awesome new hobbies and to be quite honest I’m not ready for it to end.. I’m having to much fun!
Nevertheless The snowboard season is right around the corner and I’m going to the gym 6 days a week and skating as much as possible to get a strong as I can for the winter. Two more weeks to go then I’m back on snow! To get day to day updates check out my Facebook page at facebook.com/chuckg.tv or follow me on twitter at @chasguldemond.
Take care and see you on the slopes!”
Big congratulations to Eternal team rider Andrew Brewer. Not only for winning the Transworld Team Shoot Out with the rest of the Technine team, but for gracing the cover of the September issue of Transworld Snowboarding. Brewer along with Jonah Owen, Dylan Thompson and Derek Dennison hit the streets of Montreal, and in true Technine style showed us all what could be done in an urban zone. Check out the video here.
Well this season held on for what seemed like forever and Eternal team rider Chas Guldemond took advantage. He headed down to Mammoth Mountain, where they weren’t putting away their snowboard gear till the 4th of July, to film another “Droppin in with Chas” episode. Even had time to have a skate session at Brothers Skate Park, then head back home to Tahoe for one last go at Boreal. Take a look see.
After a long deliberation, the International Olympic Committee, has now made snowboard slopestyle an official Olympic sport. This comes as some very welcome news to Olympic hopeful and Eternal team rider, Chas Guldemond. In fact upon getting this news Chas will be heading to Park City to meet with the head of US Snowboarding and to get a personalized workout program from the trainers at their world class facility. Then straight to Mt. Hood for the rest of July to coach his signature session at HCSC. This past season was incredible for Chas. He won practically everything that he entered including 1st Place 2011 European X Games Slopestyle, 1st Place 2011 Grand Prix Slopestyle, 1st Place 2011 Toyota Big Air, 1st Place 2011 Arctic Challenge, 1st Place 2011 Stuttgart Big Air. We are sending him nothing but good vibes as he will no-doubt have a hard 2 years of training leading up to the 2014 Games.
The recognition of the slopestyle event by the IOC gives a lot of validity to the sport as well as the athletes who risk it all for the sport. Everyone involved hopes to see the Olymipc slopstyle become a great success and help propel the disapline much as the 1998 Nagano games did for halfpipe.

Arbor team rider Kody Noble shows us how it is done on a longboard in the streets of San Francisco. He destroys everything on the Arbor Hybrid GT. Watch through till the end, last shot is flippin’ impressive!
