    Each year at this time Oakley pulls together from all our offices to welcome global media to showcase our up coming product lines, provide education, discuss our methods and do a little bit of partying. This year “Global Media Week” is taking place in the Lower East Side (LES) of Manhattan, NY.

    Eero Ettala has been scoring on many levels the last few weeks in Japan. Since arriving fresh off the madness that was Red Bull Snowscrapers, Ettala has been shredding the gnar ninja backcountry. Hooking up with reigning TTR World Title Champion Kevin Pearce and slayer of all backcountry goodness Nicolas Muller, Eero has been enjoying his time in Japan filming for his TV Show “Tracking Eero” coming out this fall on FUEL TV.

    So the madness kicked off the moment we landed at JFK and then made our way to the swanky Rivington Hotel in the Lower East Side. The riders that have come out for this event are some heavy hitters, but topping the list on the Oakley side are Shaun White, Terje Haakonsen, Eero Ettala, Heikki Sorsa, Torstein Horgmo, Dustin Craven, JJ Thomas and Bjorn Leines.
