What are you going to do with your year, winter, day, run or off that side hit? Hopefully not waste it wondering what could have been. Over here at Think Thank we say occupy your moments! The Weather Outside is Weather no matter what you do, so you might as well enjoy it. Speculation be damned! Analysis paralysis be gone! The earth spins, the wind howls, the snow falls and about all one can do, aside from cowering in the flickering phone light, is to grab the crew and go ride. Whatever time, temp, odds, odd ball or obstacle is in front of us our crew is assembled and spiraling off in to the inner space of mini shred and the open abyss of mega rad. From Alaska to Amsterdam, Snoqualmie to Sochi no patch will be left un-worked. We’ll stretch our legs on copious garbage lid lay overs along the journey of suspended reality digging deep in to the creative ids of Think Thank’s progressive snowboard explorers; Ted Borland, Ryan Paul, Brandon Reis, Max Warbington, Jesse Burtner, Freddy Perry, Sammy Spiteri, Nial Romanek, Justin Keniston, Parker Duke, Ben Bogart, Phil Hansen, Ryland West and The Big Mess. Along this journey won’t know much, but we’ll know we love snowboarding and that the Weather Outside is Weather and that that may be all we need to know.
