L1 MERICA TOUR – part one

Do you NItroever get the urge to just drop everything and just get into a car and drive off on an adventure with your friends? That seems like a dumb question because I think almost all of us think that about once a week from the time we get our drivers license. The world is just a turn of a key away. It is weird why more people or snowboard teams don´t do it. Last winter a group of the L1 AMs and Pros decided to do exactly that – get into a van and go.

There was no real plan about where to go or how far, we just wanted to go snowboarding together at cool street spots and parks. The first part of the tour did not bring us very far. We got everyone into the van and were about to head out from Salt Lake City, but then it started dumping in town so we just drove to the famous and some what played out “SLC – Rail Gardens” to get a quick session in before we hit the road. There was so much snow and so many homies that the quick session lasted for two days. We snowboarded at Rail Gardens for two full days. So much for a Tour, but hey the snowboarding was amazing and the times were good. That´s what its all about.

The Rail Gardens crew consisted of; Jon Kooley, Sam Taxwood, Blake Geis, Brandon Hammid, Justin Keniston, Shane Wright, Jeffery Richards, Justin Bennee plus a bunch of other homies. The standout was probably Jeffery Richards because he had not snowboarded for like a year and he absolutely killed it + Justin Bennee´s full cabs over the pallet.
