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.
Brendan's Mom doesn't want her baby in the clink
Anyhow, lots of mischief and mayhem in between and plenty of more to come!

Alright this is going to be big. Saturday night October 15th
Eternal will be putting on our third snowboard movie premiere of the season. Finger On Da Trigger will present “Familia 2,” the highly anticipated follow up to “Familia.” We are extra stoked cause Eternal and Technine snowboards
team members Andrew Brewer and Jake Devine both star in this movie. But the movie is only a small piece of what we have planned for you all.
We are going to kick off the night with an armature rail jam open to anyone who wants to throw down. Boreal will be helping us out and they are bringing down one of their expert built rails. It’s a great excuse to dust off your snowboard gear and Febreze out your stinky boots.
After the rail jam there will be an autograph signing, and there will be too many riders on hand to mention. Then the movies will begin with Givin’s movie “One” and then FODT’s “Familia 2.”
Since it is Saturday and we don’t want to go home, Kreayshawn will be playing us some party music all the way until Sunday.
Get your tickets in advance for $10 at Eternal. Tickets at the door are $15.
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.
Congrats to Eternal’s crew of employees and snowboard team riders for taking a Top Three finish at The Red Dawn Shop Battle yesterday, April 9, 2009, held at Boreal.
Eternal’s team consisted of Braeden Ellis – Retail Manager of the Eternalsnow.com retail store in Sparks, Anthony Moore – Assistant Manager of Eternal Boardshop in Spanish Springs, and Eternal Snowboard Team riders Andrew Brewer and David Harger.
Big ups guys.
Boards N’ Motion took top honors with the help a skier on their team throwing down a wicked DOUBLE BACKFLIP. Other Top Three team was Porter’s Tahoe.
Congrats to all teams, and many thanks to Eternal’s crew for representin’.
