In addition both Pep and Seth were in town filming some segments for Seth’s upcoming documentary film releasing this time next year. In total Oakley had riders in nine of the films, here is a quick breakdown on each.

This year’s US Open was the final major halfpipe event of the year, and minus a few super stars with Olympic burnout the rider’s field was one of the most talented all year.
