Smokin Pool Party 3 at Boreal

Well the Smokin Pool Party 3 at Boreal brought to you by Smokin Snowboards, Truckee Horticulture, Skull Candy, Union, Matix, DVS, Electric, Neff, Volcom, Zinka, Coal, AirBlaster, OneBallJay is a wrap. With one of the most progressive and unique setups we have had to date, the kids went off and there was some serious shredding going down. It was built with the drop-in being the Half pipe with jibs on it, into a euro gap or up rail, then into a qp with a banked box on top, then turn around and come back to the down bar or road gap, and it also included a hip to wall ride feature and our Smokin Pool Party pond skim with a lift tower jib thru the center. It was a great time. Tons of folks came out to rip and party with local celeb Danny Davis and Rome Shredder LNP along with Academy Team Manager Eric Drummer. So many riders dropping and killing the Boreal terrain park setup made it hard to distinguish the best, but it was thinned out and the top 15 rode the finals out with some serious bangers.With more free gear and schwagg than we have ever had before, everyone went home with handfulls of stuff from all of our great sponsors. By the end of the day the top honor went to Salomon Snowboards Sawyer Dean, Second pace was earned by Smokin's Bryce Salazar, and third place honors went to Brenden Rego who also murdered the entire event. The ladies top spot went to Saori Nasu from Japan, while the King Grom of the Day was 13y/o Dante Brooke who wowed the judges with a back rodeo up the euro gap. It was pretty sick. All in All the day couldn't have been better with an absolutely Beautiful day and a great course from Boreal Terrain Park crew.

The consumer is king. We salute you with a new way to look at buying your next snowboard. In this day and age of stay at home shopping, some of you prefer buying online and getting your product shipped to your doorstep. The Smokin Pro Model program is for you. Retailers earn a margin on each sale for their customer service. We are passing that margin to the pro first and you, the online consumer next. Our pros will earn $75 per board sold online, over seven times the average royalty rate in the industry. That is directly supporting the riders, the life and inspiration of snowboarding. Your “savings” is really redistribution of the margin and still giving back to the riders and valued retailer. They offer valuable service of boards as well as customer service. For that reason, when you buy your Smokin Pro Model online and name your favorite retailer, we will send them a check for $25.
