We’re in the depths of the 17/18 snowboard season now and, phew! What an exciting winter to be alive. First, check the out the above edit from the first ever Yobeat Night Central at Brandywine/Boston Mills in Ohio, put together by Josh Cochrane and made possible by our friends at Brew Dr. Kombucha, PBR, and Vans! If you missed it, you missed out. However, if you’re on the East Coast, we’ve got a few more evenings at Wachusett with discounted tickets coming up, and Tech Nine is even coming out for the event on March 8th. If you’re in Oregon, Mother Nature is a bitch, so you shoulda joined us on February 1st.
In global snowboard newz, the PyeongChang Olympics rage on! We were really into it after seeing Red Gerard take home the slopestyle gold. And that hype lasted at least as long as his round trip flight back from Korea.
The halfpipe happened just as NBC wanted, with Chloe Kim doing what she set out to, and Shaun White earning the ability to go out on top. We got a little more hyped when Yobeat got a call out on CBC for the boot grab joke (we’d link ya but the IOC keeps deleting it), which we apparently popularized. (Who knew anyone was paying attention?) Phew, that was enough halfpipe action for one year.
