Endless Fuckin Energy, While Your Flying 500 Fuckin Miles Through The Fucking Air! Fuck Yeah America

The text says: “Monster lo-carb delivers a wicked buzz and has a smooth flavor you can really savor. So when its time to jet, grab a MONSTER and go nonstop.”

Yeah, someone got payed to write that.

Made in Oregon.

I made this print for Mr. Silas Beebe. He had contacted me about getting a print for his house because the page he took out of the magazine had seen better days. It’s easy to forget how nice it is to hold a photograph rather than just looking at it on a screen.

This photo was taken during Snowpocolyps 08 in Portland on the West end Burnside bridge.  Busting a nearly flatground handplant is Videographer Austin Will. Who was in fact, “Made in Oregon” sometime in the 80’s.  They have since changed the neon sign. (booo)  So it’s nice to have a lil piece of history captured in the photo.

P.S. Big thanks to Jeremy for awkwardly inspecting my photo, Thanks Jeremy!

A real Canadian’s Canadian Sean Genovese got a few shots in the Jan. Issue of Snowboarder Magazine. Two of the shots we snagged at Super Park 14 in Mammoth, CA. The last shot we stacked up in AK at this frozen overflow reservoir thing.  Thanks Sean, for flinging your carcass in front of the lens and times when I pressed a button!
