ISPO is in a strange magical place called Europe. Say it with me kids. Yur-UP. Most everyone has some sort of humorous accent, people are smoking inside, and beer is considered a breakfast beverage. Like SIA, there are lots of people you don’t have time to talk to, lots of people that don’t have time to talk to you, and lots of others who are there to get real business done I suppose. I spent two days at the show this year, and the main themes I noticed are: there are way more good looking girls that seem to be truly interested in snowboarding than in the states, just as many kooks on weird modes of transport rolling around the showroom floor, and an overall sense of bewilderment as to why we are all standing in a flourescent lit giant building looking at shit we’ve seen online a month ago. Here are some random photos from the days I was there. I tried to capture a sense of the overall feel or the show. There were pros, hos, and even a flash mob. — Ryan Scardigli
