The future of surfing is in good hands. And Oakley is making sure of it. 2011’s Oakley Pro Junior campaign is in full swing. And from what’s already gone down thus far, it’s safe to say that this year is on track to be all-time. Each region’s most talented and dazzling young surfers have been throwing down as a preview of what’s to come in the sport. And we’re not even close to being done. With the North Stradbroke Island (Australia), Lowers (California) and Brazil stops in the books – and the coming events in Spain, Japan and France on the horizon, some of the best undiscovered rippers on the Planet are sure to surface onto center stage. All united by the love of the sport and pure stoke on Oakley.
No one’s ever seen anything like it. Last weekend, a secret, mysterious photoshoot was rumored by those in the industry to have went down at Squaw Valley…one unlike any other in history. And they were right. Enter Oakley Freeski star Simon Dumont. The brainchild of O’s Ripper, the ‘Cubed Pipe’ at Squaw was six years in the making. Built through the talents of Oakley-sponsored Snowpark Technologies, and supported by Red Bull. Simon’s dream finally came into fruition. With a whole lot of planning – and a little bit of luck, that is. Simon threw down for the buzz-surrounded shoot – and some sick images were the obvious result.
What exactly is a ‘sledneck?’ Guess you’re gonna have to find out for yourself by peeping a sick new Snowmobile flick called…well, “Slednecks.” Complete with Oakley Ski Team Ripper and Snowmobile Sledder Dan Treadway (yes, he rocks both) in the spotlight. Dropping in August.
