The snow has not even hit the ground and Eternal’s very own Chas Guldemond is already starting off the season with a win. Chas just got back to the states after winning the biggest event in Zurich, Switzerland the Freestyle.ch. Check out some of the highlights. Congrats Chas!!

And his winning run!

Chas Guldemond Will be at the Woodward Tahoe Grand Opening!

Chas Guldemond has had a great winter with wins all over the world including the title of World Champion in slope style. With such a good winter Chas is certainly looking forward to summer. But the snowboarding is not quite over. This Saturday, June 9th, Chas will be making a guest appearance at the grand opening of Woodward Tahoe up at Boreal here in Tahoe. Here is what Chuck will be up to this summer right from the man himself.

“Man am I stoked for Summer! It was a long winter and a really successful one at that. I traveled all over the world and had a lot of fun and visited some of my favorite places. To name a few, Oslo Norway for the World champs, Sapporo Japan for the Toyota big Air and Mammoth for the Grand Prix!

Now it is time for summer mode. I just bought a new mountain bike so I will be ripping that around town and in the mountains to get my legs going. As always I will be training hard in the Gym and working with a trainer to take my fitness to the next level. My summer hobbies are endless it seams from dirt biking and skating to wake boarding and chilling with my dogs. To cap it all of I will be testing some of my new Board designs at mount hood in July.

Its going to be a busy summer filled with stuff to do but I am stoked to take a little break for the shred and do some of the things that make me happy.”

Winter Wrap Up

Well the season that never was is finally coming to an end. We had a very late start to winter, but we made the best of it. Thankfully we had a good March and early April. The snow started falling hard here in Tahoe. Good thing too because we got the bulk of our snow for the entire season right at the end. In fact one of the best powder days of the season was on April Fools’ Day, no joke.

Chas GuldemondThe Eternal team riders made the best of what snow we had. Chas Guldemond had a banger competitive season. He made his mark by being crowned 2012 World Snowboard Champion Slopestyle in Oslo. This was a big win as the World Championships are only held every four years. Chas picked up top spot at the 2012 Toyota Big Air and 2012 Burton Canadian Open. Chas has also started working out and training with the US Snowboard team in anticipation of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. It has been a busy year for Chas in fact he is just coming back home after filming with Standard Films.

Andrew BrewerAndrew Brewer has been non-stop filming with Technine and FMF for what I am sure will be another super progressive part. He started off the season gracing the cover of Transworld, as well as our own 2012 catalog. We are also excited for Brewer as he is getting an entire pro model line from Technine including snowboards and outerwear. But just because the snow is melting does not mean he is done, Brewer will be a coaching at the all new Camp Woodward Tahoe located at Boreal Mountain here in Tahoe, with the first ever summer snowboard camp at Boreal scheduled for June.

So now it is time to dust off the skateboard, bike, golf clubs, surfboard, or roller-blades, because the days are long and the weather is warm. And by the way if you need to look good this summer we still carry all kinds of the latest and greatest summer gear and styley skateboard shoes from DC, DVS, Vans, Emerica, Lakai and more.

World Champion Chas Guldemond!

Chas Guldemond TTR World Champion

Eternal’s very own Chas Guldemond was crowned TTR Slopestyle World Champion in Oslo, Norway this past weekend. The TTR World Snowboard Championships were held for the first time this year and will not be held again for three more years. “That’s the first time I’ve landed a switch back 1260..” Chas on his winning run. Chas through down a pretty heavy winning run which started with a  frontside blunt 270 out to a frontside boardslide 450 out, switch backside 1260, backside 1080, tailpress to backside 180 and ended with a huge Cab 1260. Check the winning run out here.

This was a big win for Chas. Chas’ contest season got off to a slow start. He had some board issues at the X Games and was unable to make the finals. But he kept his head in the game and headed to Calgary for the 5 Star Burton Canadian Open where he turned the page for his contest season and took home the win and a big confidence boost. This is his winning run.

Chas then headed straight to Sapporo for the Toyota Big Air in the Sapporo Dome where he battled through the rounds taking home 2nd place in front of wild crowd of 35,000 screaming Japanese fans.

From Japan Chas got straight on a flight to The World Snowboarding Championships in Oslo missing a few days of practice and having to go straight into competition. Chas made it through qualifiers and semi finals and ended up winning the first ever World Snowboarding Championships!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS CHAS!! All Hale The World Champ!!!!!!!!

Our First Premiere Was a Success!

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!
