There’s been some serious heads rolling through campus in the past few weeks. Schmitty, the online guru for skateboarding’s bible, Thrasher Magazine and man behind the Trife, rolled through with Dan Drehobl, Alex Horn, Peter Watkins, Taylor Bingaman, and Frecks. Thrasher’s Joe Brooks and SkateDaily‘s Bryce Kanights were also here to take photos. Stay tuned to both Windells and Thrasher for an update on the content coming out of both camps, because both video and still frame cameras were out. Click more to check out some more photos…
Atmosphere is a pretty awesome company, not only for the sweet duds they churn out to keep you warm and fresh-looking, but also because they come to camp a couple of times a session and put on sick events, both on and off the slopes. They also keep a super-updated blog, so when you can’t skate or shred and you’re sitting around geeking out on your computer (don’t kid yourself, we do it, too, it’s cool), you can check up on what’s going on in the Northwest, with their team, and with your favorite snowboard camp, of course! Check out their blog right now for a TON of Windells updates. They’ve got updates from their riders, the diggers, Session 4 snake race and more. All the photos are by Drew Smalley from DSImagery. Thanks for the love guys!
During Session 3, Rome’s Laurent-Nicolas Paquin and Staale Sandbech were at camp and they even stopped by ladies night to say what’s up to the campers! They both were really good sports and got a thumb painted. Don’t they look nice?
The Sammy Carlson Invitational got cut short due to weather but that didn’t stop the pros from throwing down on the big gap.
Technine riders MFM, Dylan Thompson, Ben Bilodeau Jeremy, and Brady have been at camp this week. They set up a sick Dream Feature on hill, complete with a dumpster-jump with an actual dumpster, a wallride, jersey barrier and all sorts of other fun features. Down at camp, Ben and Brady have been skating a ton and everyone has been hanging out. Earlier in the session, they put on the Technine Powdered Donut Eating Competition. Each camper had to eat 15 mini donuts the fastest, in order to win new gear from Technine. It was awesome and ended in the biggest donut food fight that you will have to see in video when the Windells film crew releases the edit. Donuts have always been pretty delicious, but Technine made them really fun, too! [Read more…]
Today some of the Nike SB team rolled through, alongside some friends. Clark Hassler, Al Partanen, Chet Childress, Daniel Shimizu, Justin Brock, Stefan Janoski, Omar Hassan, Matt Beach, Jason Hernadez, and friends rolled through Windells to hang out with the campers, check out campus, soak up some rays, and skateboard, of course! Jason Hernandez is the man behind many of skateboarding’s adored films (Transworld Films and Nike SB’s Debacle), and was filming in the park for an upcoming project, camper Amiel even got a clip!

Well, here is your chance. It may seem unlikely that basketball is one of the favorite activities at Windells, but stepping onto the makeshift court by the Heshin’ Delicatessen is an every day occurance as campers, coaches and staff all jump in line to play knock-out during the session. Spontaneous knock-out games happen frequently and oftentimes, sponsor will show up to hand out prizes to the top players or funny granny-style shooters.
Session 3 was the Rome Team Session and Laurent-Nicolas Paquin and Staale Sandbech got their dribble on in the biggest knock-out game Windells has ever had. The line of players wrapped almost all the way to Dex’s Shop! It was crazy and super fun. Campers won Rome tshirts and sunglasses from the Rome Team. LNP did pretty well, but Staale made it almost to the end of the game. You won’t catch Laurent and Staale playing basketball very often, so the campers were stoked to play knock-out with the guys. More photos after the jump. [Read more…]
