The average 12 year old’s day generally consists of playing the latest video game, napping, and screaming at their parents for not allowing them to drink pop. As you can see, Nick Stotz is far from average – he’s the future of snowboarding. Nick eats, breaths, and dreams snowboarding. If a few years you’ll remember this video and realize the future is already upon us.
Notice the boards Nick was riding? Yep, check out all of the K2 grom decks out HERE.
While Chicago and the entire East Coast gets pounded with +40″ of snow the Videograss stayed back in Minnesota to rip laps. With Hyland Hills as the home turf setting of many VG riders, it sets a harmonious tone for fun.
Well what do y’know? Another trip commences by the notorious Strange Brew crew. Starting it off with some shitty dmv drawbacks is always a plus. Only reinforcing that California is not that tite… Weighing this big black lemon of an automobile? You know we packin… A drivers test for Daly? No thanks. Smog test? Fuck daht. And aggravation building? Lets get in this friggin’ van. Twenty-five or some odd hours later we arrived at our destination, Minnesota. We love this damn place, and what better way to start than an elementary school. As basic as a bitch with a pumpkin spice latte. But the boys managed to make that latte extra spicey. Some shit went down and good times were had. Phew… Oh and a little premature Tahoe footy. As the lord of all hotdogs would say, why not?
We are proud to announce a new partnership with friend and legend, Bryan Iguchi. We consider this a foundation level alliance that united past, present, and future.
Bryan Iguchi is an innovator, ambassador, artist, and leader. Through it all, he has never been afraid to walk away from the limelight and conventional thinking in order to evolve as a rider. His instinct for the arc of progression in snowboarding has made each stand-alone period in his career simply chapters in a powerful and ongoing story.
“Snowboarding has given me a deep connection to the mountains. Arbor’s tree icon is symbolic of this to me. Their roots building boards with wood grain topsheets is something I’ve always appreciated. I’ve now been riding Arbor for two months and I’m amazed by the quality and performance I’ve experienced. It’s an honor to be working with them.”
“For Arbor Snowboards, Guch brings a lifetime of experience to our product, team, and filming efforts. Working together, we now have a unique opportunity to blend that knowledge into everything we’re doing, including a range of collaborative snowboard designs to come.”
