Thanks Bill, POV Videos, and Snow Shred (WWS)

In this installment of the wide world of shred, I'm all over the place.

First, with the Hurricane Bill update. It turned out so good, that Andy Irons himself was dancing over New Jersey and riding East Coast swell. Epic pictures abound on the intertubes. There is also now an additional "Tropical Wave" coming up the Atlantic that could make for additional swell next weekend. Wahooo. Perhaps a trip down to Ocean Shitty, MD to drop into the nutso closeout wave there will be fun.

Next up, Teton Gravity Research has been holding a point-of-view video competition and they just released the results. The number one video is epic. Definitely check it out.

Finally, ESPN had a post up about awesome spots to go to for vacations. Take a look at this pic of Portilio. If only one boloner got his ass in gear, perhaps we would be there. Just looking at these peaks is amazing. Riding and living up at 10,000 feet surrounded by the Andes and without a tree in sight. Definitely got to get there one of these days. And as to next year, planning is already in place. Seems like we may in fact be off to Heavenly to shred the slopes of the Sierra Nevadas. w00tw00t. Even better, we'll be staying at a casino, so we can just bet our plane tickets and get a totally free trip.
