Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge 2017

With late-season snow falling on the Pacific Northwest, a stoked tribe of snowsurf shredders gathered at Mt. Bachelor for this year’s edition of Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge. A three-day jam session celebrating snowboarding’s roots in the surf, the event featured more riders than ever and an expanded course of banked corners, spines and quarterpipes.

As always, the vibe was about as loose as it gets for a contest. “I grew up surfing in Waikiki,” Gerry says, “where the beach boys taught all us youngsters that the best surfer was the one having the most fun. Snowboarding was an easy thing to get into, because it was very much like surfing. And if we look at either or both, the underlying reason we love it is because it’s really fun.”
