Sushi night with the adult campers

The adult campers that come to Windells get the camp experience that the kids get but also the adult freedom of fun nightlife and dinners together.  Last night was the group sushi dinner where the adult campers trekked out of the mountains and into a delicious Japanese restaurant for sushi/noodle dinner.

Camper of the Day: Chloe

The warm weather continues to bless the campers at Session 4 of Windells Camp and under the sun campers of all ability levels are dialing in their tricks before they go back home.  Snowboard Coach Billy Rodriguez named his campers Team Awesome crew for session 4 and inside the Team Awesome group we found 12 year Chloe from New York who came to Windells to progress her park riding.

Triple Corks at Windells

I am sure that everyone has already seen this video, Sammy Carlson tossing a triple on Windells 110 foot jump, but here it is again. Its UNREAL.

I also wanted to point out that SCI was epic and all of the riders had a great time and although no one else went for the trips, the tricks thrown were still amazing!  Below are some pics to get an idea of how massive our  jump was.

Camper of the Day: Philippe

The warm bluebird days have arrived just in time for the session 4 campers to lap a variety of features in our private park at Timberline. So far this summer we’ve had quite the French-Canadian invasion at camp so it was no surprise to have 16 year old Philippe from Quebec be chosen for today’s Camper of the Day.

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!

Camper of the Day: Beau

Session 4 has arrived at Windells Camp and delivered bluebird skies with winds today on the slopes on the mountain. Each session we have adult campers who vary in ages and skills but are enjoying the camp just as much as the kids. I enlisted the help of Brandon Cocard to pick out a camper for today and he picked 33 year old Beau from Seattle, WA in the adult group whose goggles sealed the deal.

Hump Days!

The new Hump Day at Windells featuring Jonah Owen, Austin Hironaka, Trevor Jacob, Johnny Lazz, Staale Sandbech and Lucas Wilson!

Ever wanted to play basketball with a pro snowboarder?

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…]

Sprucing Up the Concrete Park…

In-between Sessions 3 and 4 some of the Windells staff, alongside some friends, put a new coat of paint on much of the skatepark. Bits of green and baby blue can be seen throughout the park, and the readers of the blog will be getting bits and pieces of the the new paint throughout the next session, in both video and photo format. We also put some NHS banners up around the park. Check out head Skate Coach Jamie Weller and Portland head Willis Kimbel putting it down. Tomorrow morning some of the Nike SB dudes will be in town. Get ready for the footage, you know it’s going to be gnarly.
