It’s no secret that Nor-Am events are few and far between these days. Insurance, hay bales and timing systems are all expenses preventing peeps from hosting ‘legitimate’ events. There are a few rad freeride events like Giant’s Head and KNK going down, but it’s apparent that a lot of destination-skating has migrated away from the race scene. By no means does that imply the heavy pack skating has stopped, now it’s just under the radar. As shown in a few previous articles, the best downhill skaters in the west have been stopping by our local slab of pavement for some steep skids and heavy hits.
I thought I’d lost a good chunk of the photos from one particularly deep session last month, but recently the skate gods blessed me with a treasure greater than the outcome of any train-robbery. Here are the goods.
With the ski resorts getting dumped on as I type this, Rasta Resort probably is too. So long for now, best in the west.

Fall in the air, fresh pavement under your wheels, yellow leaves flying by at 70mph. Pure bliss.
The wave of skate stoke has its ups and downs, sometimes organizing a session is harder than the skating that happens in it. This year the skate gods have blessed us with many fresh roads in the great salty state, so Riley and myself ventured south this week to skate the dankest of danks. Here is a recap to remind you all how rad our state is and to go git sum before it is all covered in snow.
Session started out with a little camping and dawn patrol on the home hill, good warm-up for the terrain to come.
After a solid morning of skating we split from the crew and headed south for the uncharted goods. Riley’s first descent on this freshly paved highway bomb clocked at 69mph from my speedometer, safe to say the following runs only got faster (see video).
After exploring exactly how much adrenaline one can handle while still holding their shit down, we ventured next door to the Rasta Resort where we met up with Dylan.
Though numbers were small, skating was heavy. Look forward to some more media from more field trips, now go skate through some pretty fall trees.

Knox Heslop just dropped some bangers in his 2nd Rasta Resort raw run. Peep.
Our gross may not like going fast or putting a hand down, but they do know how to make janky edits of big standup slides. Watch this little vid from some little sl,uts
The boys from down in suburbia dropped this artsy little vid of a hit and quit gem somewhere in Poland, check it out!
This kid is half your size, younger than your little sister, and probably shreds harder than you.
Its safe to say that Knox is a shredder. Take a couple minutes to watch him skate faster than you do.
Follow Jake Wilkinson down a local run. Fuck her right in the pussy.
