Take me back Tuesday: Session 7 Rome Splasher Night

Rome Splasher Night is one of the best nights each session at snowboard camp. You’ve probably seen the different versions of the game the last few years: Slasher Night, ‘Stacher Night, Thrasher Night, and 2012′s Splasher Night. The theme is the same each summer, a giant game of manhunt that ends in a final round that challenges campers further with talent contests, air guitar-offs, and shark attack impressions, depending on the year.

Session 7 had one of the best Rome Splasher Nights because it involved water balloons. Water balloons make everything more fun. After the campus-wide tag game had eliminated all but a few campers, a water balloon toss went down in the courtyard. Check out the photos for a glimpse into Session 7, 2012. [Read more...]

Take me back Tuesday: Session 1 skate trips

The weather is dropping across North America, ushering in fall temps that are perfect for skating. As we hit the ‘crete and link up with friends for miniramp sessions, we are reminiscing about Session 1 skate camp. Lucky for us, Session 1 has the coolest weather for skating all summer. Yes, it rains sometimes, but that’s why we have BOB! Session 1 kicked off an awesome summer full of skating all over Oregon and Washington, and there were some perfect, sunny days to explore new and familiar parks.

Jamie Weller, Ian Neal, and Sev Boosinger were on the job as Windells’ legendary skate coaches to provide campers with the best week of skateboarding all summer. Check out a few photos from parks the crew visited and drift back to summer with us. [Read more...]

Take me back Tuesday: first day of the summer

Campers arrive for Session 1 as stoked staff help unload their gear.

September has begun. School is in session. Officelife is in full effect. Terrain park crews are beginning to get their rails in shape for the season. Snowboard and ski shops are getting in new equipment and getting ready to start spread excitement for winter. As we get closer to winter and getting stoked to ride at home resorts across the world, we’re also excited to take a trip down memory (Windells) lane each week with Take me Back Tuesday, a look back at summer 2012 and a countdown to summer 2013. There’s tons of curbs to be skated and powders lines to be slashes before next year, but we’re still stoked that we’re only nine months away from summer camp. [Read more...]

Flow x Yobeat edit #2

Flow just dropped their Session 7 Team Takeover adult edit on Yobeat yesterday. The term “adult” may be confusing, but don’t worry, it’s totally PG–”adult” refers to their am and pro riders as compared to the Microns, who had their own edit on Yobeat. Check out the shreddin’ stylings of Jon and Erik Overson, Micah Hoogeveen, Nial Romanek and more in the Yobeat x Flow edit. Yeah!
