Last Friday September, 30 was Eternal’s first, in a series of four snowboard movie premieres at The Freight House District in Reno, NV. We kicked the evening off with a preseason Box Jam to get everyone into the right frame of mind, after spending the week in 90 degree temperatures. A thunder storm blew through, but it looked to me that everyone riding the box were just happy to have a snowboard on their feet and snow on the ground… or shaved ice anyways.
There were about 10-14 guys throwing nose presses, lip slides and I even saw some front flips out going down. I am sure it was a good warm up for everyone, especially since there is snow in the forecast.
After the Box Jam we packed The Freight House full to watch “The Shred Remains” the latest movie from the Rome Snowboard team. The movie has more of a throwback feel of a crew getting together, making movies and having fun. There are no shots that would require 2 helicopters and an airplane here. It’s a good movie to pop in, get pumped, and go ride.
Of course we did some raffling and product toss. We were also lucky enough to get some posters, pictures and whatever else you had signed by Rome’s very own LNP, Jonny Lazz, Marie Hurcal, and Wade Goddi, in addition to Eternal team members Chas Guldemond and Andrew Brewer.
Then we partied into the night. Good movie, good friends, good times, that about sums it up.
A special thanks go out to: Ryan Reidel (Freight House District); Kristian Walters; Grady Skelton (Rome SDS); Ryan Roberts and DJ; and of course all of the kids who shredded and came out to get pumped up about snowboarding!
Next Friday October, 7th we will be premiering Capita’s movie “Defenders of Awesome” at The Freight House once again. See you there!
