The 2012 O’Neill Experience recap from Camp of Champs

What happens when you get together a group of world-class shredders during the summer on a glacier in Whistler? The O’Neill Experience happens, a week long shred fest of photo shoots, product testing and good times.

O’Neill team members Sebastian Toutant, Jeremy Jones, Celia Miller, Iris Lazz and more descended upon Camp of Champs for a week long adventure both on and off the mountain.  From testing new product, to photo shoots and shredding with campers, the entire team put it down to get ready for the fast approaching 201/2013 season.
