A Little Bit of Springtime in the Back of My Mind

Posted in Random with tags , , on April 26, 2011 by telepromptedanthems

It’s been a long winter, but Spring is officially here in NC, so Nick and Mark have been out getting things done with our resident photographer, Jason Hudson.  Here are a few shots that Jason got the other day, which I blatantly stole from his bookmark-worthy website. Check it out to see a bunch more of his work. Highly recommended browsing.

Nick was so excited to ride that he forgot to take off his sweatshirt!

Thanks for the shots, Jason. It’s just about time to dust off the video camera too…

Today’s lesson: If you have a bunch of stuff on your laptop that you would prefer to keep for a while, take a lesson from Juvenile and be sure back it up every now and then. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

A Recap of Nick’s Spring Break

Last month, Nick went down to spend a his Spring Break at Adam Fields’ house in sunny Orlando, Florida. He convinced Sam Baker to tag along for the trip and I’m here to tell you that the boys got some serious work done.

Always a gracious host, Adam was up every morning cooking breakfast and making sure everyone got out on the water at a decent hour. He even went the extra mile and set up a few sessions with several other riders, so Nick got to shoot every day they were there. Hyperlite’s Danny Thollander and CWB’s Nick Jones rode one day, Adam’s Liquid Force teammate Scott Stewart came by for a while, and one of Slingshot’s new kids on the block, Oli Derome, took a set one morning (and by the way, according to Alliance’s Twitter page, Oli landed a wake to wake 1080 today. Dude is no joke.).

And then there was Adam. Nick shot at least seven or eight sets of Adam throughout the weekend and I was flipping out this week as I was going through the footage. I seriously can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings. Check out the video and get excited for 2011.
