Wow, I can’t believe how quickly this summer is going by. Here in Colorado we’ve had a remarkably extended spring/summer snow and rain season, and it has been amazing. Now that the rain has slowed down a bit, and temperatures are rising, it’s been nice to get out and skate a bit and enjoy the summertime.
The summer days also bring back memories from when I would sit inside when it was too hot or rainy and watch the old great shred movies like Chill, Snowboarders in Exile, the TB series, Creatures of Habit, and Critical Condition. I’m sure we all have memories from our youth like this, and they were probably from skateboarding, mountain biking, surfing and such.
Since most action sports are seasonal, it’s always nice to reflect on those early days that kept us going and wanting more. With that I’ll leave you with one of my favorite scenes from an awesome shred movie, and — just a hint — this is a bit of a teaser for an upcoming article.
Have a safe and fun 4th of July!
