"When snowboarding was just a young punk, we were there. When it went through its shameful neon days, we were there. When resorts begrudgingly allowed it, we were there. Evolution of parks and pipes—check. Movement to the backcountry—check. Mainstream status, mega superstardom, Olympics—check, check, check. We were there. Not only were we creating trendsetting threads for our riders, we were nurturing the entire scene from the ground up with events like the legendary Westbeach Classic. Epic times that came to define an era and create memories that will last beyond a lifetime."
