While I do live very near to the Oregon Coast I do not get to surf as much as I’d like too. I love it when friends come from out of town and motivate me to go to the beach. The last fews days I hung out at the beach with the P.S. Crew- (Hana Beaman, Robin Van Gyn and Leanne Pelosi) as they filmed the intro section to their movie. We had fun camping, surfing, eating and shooting lifestyle images. Here are a few photos from the beach.
Mmmmmmm. Beach fire.
Just got back from a trip to Colorado were I met up with the P.S. Girls, Robin Van Gyn and Hana Beaman. You can check out some of the webisodes from this season here. Keep an eye out for an edit from this trip.
Robin and Hana are silly, these are a few photos of them right before they hit the backcountry jump they are sitting on.
I was stoked to join Hana Beaman, Kimmy Fasani and Cheryl Maas to shoot still photos during their trip to Silverton, Colorado last Winter.
Look for the editorial coverage in Snowboard Magazine (North America) and Cooler Magazine (Europe) later this year.
In the meantime check out this sick video edit by John Roderick.
We’ve spent the last couple of days recovering from a great time up at the Bonnie Belle Cabin outside of Silverton, Colorado. The cabin is located at a mellow 12,000 feet.
Part of the trail we hiked into reach the cabin.
Kimmy checks the view from her bed.
Skylar (our guide) showing us some zones.
The cabin is located on a mine claim, Skylar found this quartz on the property during the Summer.
Mind blower, blower.

I’m just gonna throw it out there, yes, we went to Silverton. I know it’s cliche, but there’s a reason behind the hype. It’s a super interesting place and there is a ton of great terrain in the area. I like Silverton, Co.
A sleepy little town surrounded by mountain passes.
Kimmy and Cherly fine tune their jump.
The girls are really excited about something.
Fueling up at Avalanche Coffee
The sun came out today. The jump was ready. Many tricks were landed. Ok, I’m just gonna go ahead and say it, Kimmy landed a double backflip, Cherly landed a back 7 and an underflip and Hana landed a huge, steezy 3. The crew killed it.
Cheryl putting some final touches on the jump.

The crew arrived in Southern Colorado last night. Kimmy Fasani and Hana Beaman drove in with their snowmobiles, while Cheryl Maas flew in from France. The plan was for her to meet up with one of the filmer’s Cort Muller and Snowboard Mag’s Tawnya Schultz in the afternoon and they’d drive down that evening. Cheryl’s flight was delayed and she didn’t arrive in Denver until midnight. They drove all night and got to our location at 7am, the same time we had set our alarm to start our day. While they got a few hours of shut eye, Hana, Kimmy, Roderick and I headed to the snow to explore some of the terrain we’d be shredding the next 6 days.
Hana and Kimmy break trail and the exploration begins.
They found a cool double line.
Hana checks out the scene.
Kimmy lays out a slash.
Sunny days in Whistler are rare. We witnessed one today.
Highway to Heaven? Maybe just to the kicker.
Ok, it wasn’t bluebird ALL day, Hana’s not complaining.
