THE JOURNEY TO GERRY
Follow three steel city surfers who have rediscovered the joy of surfing the snow.
Waves are everywhere and this search has taken them far away from the ocean. They Surf Rivers, Lakes, and Snow. Jade Vamos in his 40s, Bryan Murray in his 50s and Steve Yount in his 60s gain inspiration from 70 year old surfing pioneer Gerry Lopez and his Big Wave Challenge in Bend, Oregon. Watch this Surfing Documentary and share the story of surf with a new breed of surfer living far from the ocean's shore.
Early snowboarders designed and rode boards that emulated surfing. As the sport evolved it was influenced and shaped by popular culture. Gymnastics, Skateboarding, Alpine Skiing and Ski Schools all played a roll in shaping the culture.
Many modern snowboarders have never ridden a wave on a surfboard. Those of us that still like to surf the snow can now ride and compete on purpose built boards that pay tribute to the original snowboard surfers!
