Cam and 686 at getting some at MT. Baker

686 Scores Miracle March At Mt. Baker

Last March, long after the locals had hung up their boots after a seemingly mediocre snow year at Mt. Baker, the 686 crew rolled through awaiting whatever the mountain had to offer. The result was nothing short of  “Miracle March” conditions. Two weeks of classic storm factory dark mountain days mixed with perfect sunny powder days and everything in between provided the crew with stomping grounds full of fresh snow. Cam PierceForest Bailey, and Sebi Geigerstarted off the week with days in the trees dodging heavy snowfall then taking to the air when the sun peaked through. Week two saw a change in crews. Cam stuck around, andJoe BoslerMike Gray, and Andy Berginsperry rotated in with fresh legs and a ready-to-rip attitude. “Thanks to Mt. Baker for having us out and to everyone that came and got the goods as well. Can’t wait for this year!” – Patrick McCarthy.

Cam Pierce : Full Part 2014

Cam Pierce is not your average snowboard story. Born and raised in  North Carolina with an interest in rap and music making Cam made his way onto the all-star team of Forum Snowboards/ The Project and filmed with them for a number of years. When Forum was cut by Burton, it left all the riders looking for a new path. Some fell off while others prospered with Cam falling into the latter category by finding a new board sponsors with Endeavor and a new outwear sponsor with 686. Thanks to the help by 686 Cam filmed a full part this past season and traveled to locations all over North America. Once all the clips were in they were edited together by Ian Post into this final project. So take a few minutes to check out his full part and exclusive interview below.

Interview by Ben Birk.

How did a boy from North Carolina make his way into the big leagues of snowboarding?

I guess I just grew up riding the resorts out there and knew I loved snowboarding and wanted to do it for a living. So, I moved to SLC and started filming and getting my footage out for people to see. Now in here.

What was it like filming in Minnesota this past season?

Mostly cold and windy, but it was awesome. There’s so much to film there. We were even setting up spots that were across the street from each other haha.

The Vancouver Sun Stopped by

VANCOUVER — Despite an off-the-beaten-path location, the jovial JJ Bean morning crew boasts that their historic neighbourhood is one of the most creative and industrial hubs in Vancouver.

Two tourists, after enjoying coffee and baked goods at the dark grey café in north Strathcona — nicknamed Railtown by those who work there — dash across the street to inspect and then snap several pictures of a wild wall mural done three years ago by Australian artist Dave (Meggs) Hooke.

Unbeknownst to them, there is a “board meeting” inside the decorated building at 439 Railway St. where equally impressive things are being designed and prototyped.

At the centre of this enthusiastic chatter is 35-year-old Max Jenke, sprinkling such words as pow, camber, hits, rails and hyped into the mix.

“Doing what I love today and everyday,” beams the Kitsilano-born and -raised co-owner of Endeavor Snowboards after the huddle ends. “No matter how many issues we have to deal with at our meetings, we still get to play with snowboards all day. That’s pretty rad.”

Endeavor Snowboards Pop-Up Cafe

During the week of July 14th - 18th we opened our offices with a pop-up Cafe for charity and www.cafeyvr.com stopped by. Here is what they had to say.

Photo credits and full article from www.cafeyvr.com

Endeavor Snowboards is nearing the end of their one week run operating a pop-up cafe inside their Railtown offices. The company is raising funds for the Aprons for Gloves non-profit that has been using the sport of boxing to reach at-risk youth living in the Downtown Eastside.

Since there are some big coffee fans in the office, Endeavor has always had their own espresso machine to have a morning coffee. And they also happened to be good friends with the founder of Portland's Heart Coffee Roasters Wille Yli-Luoma who was happy to help the fundraising effort. Willie previously competed as a pro rider along with one of Endeavor's founders Max Jenke.

The pop-up cafe is using Heart's Stereo Seasonal Blend and prepared on their Nuova Simonelli MAC 2000. And with a few Kiwis on staff at Endeavor the coffee menu paid homage to their favourite New Zealand cafes with flat whites and long blacks on the menu (they also have lattes and espressos).

Endeavor has a worldwide distribution network and they design, manufacture and market their two snowboarding brands Endeavor Snowboards and Airhole Facemasks along with the North American license for Swedish outerwear and lifestyle brand Colour Wear. Their building also houses their R&D facility Archetype Lab is located in the basement. The lab contains all the equipment required by Endeavor's design team to create ridable one-off prototypes snowboards.

And there's some local mountain history located next to the entrance into the lab with an old chairlift from Mount Seymour mounted in front of a wall mural of some snow capped trees. The chairs were sold off when the mountain installed a new quad-seat lift in 2012.

The Manboys: Fish Tacos

The Manboys head out to the Canadian Rockies in late spring, RV-style, just to see what the big horn sheep are up to this time of year.  Instead, they accidentally find themselves riding 2 feet of winter-grade powder and also dirt bikes.  But not at the same time.

Cam Pierce and 686 rip up Woodward Tahoe

What happens when you film Forest Bailey, Ryan Tarbell, Riley Nickerson, Cam Pierce, Pat McCarthy, and friends. You get this edit of course. The 686 boys arrived in beautiful Lake Tahoe in northern California with the mission of shredding the heck out of Woodward Tahoe. And that’s just what they did. Peep the edit. It’s short and sweet so give it a watch.

The ManBoys official teaser

The ManBoys are a mostly sublunar group of friends based out of Whistler, who love to snowboard and have important meetings. Sometimes, at these meetings, there are lots of crepes. They are currently working on a web series (The ManBoys, not the crepes) in partnership with TransWorld Snowboarding, that will hopefully get just as many views as that popular Golden Girls: Where Are They Now? video. The Manboys are Mark Sollors, Rusty Ockenden, Jody Wachniak, Robjn Taylor, Matt Belzile, and Chris Rasman.

Bookmark your browsers because their new web series starts in earnest late June, right here on TWSNOW.com.

European Vacation - Tignes, France

Late March and the some of the UK, German and Dutch Dragon European team made their way to Tignes for a week of slush busting fun, cringy photo shoots and general boarder bonding...

Bro-downs and less than generous conditions aside, the UK team must make up one of the finest in the land with Will, Ollie and Andy keeping all bases loaded, whilst new kid on the block Max De Vries (15) somehow learnt 10s in the Dutch indoor halls. Christoph Scwaz (GER) and Lukas Ellensohn (AUT) team up and round it off with style and technicality as the team took on Tignes, we'll call it draw and come back for more. Thanking the team, Dragon Lodge, McNair Snowsports, Val Heli Skiing and Jamie Durhum for their efforts in Tignes, France.

The Brighton Perspective- Cam Pierce

Cam Pierce has been riding Brighton for a long time. He knows every spot and every transition and rides with a powerful, irrefutable style. So giving Cam the opportunity to shoot at Brighton for a whole month was a no brainer. And coincidentally the park has been on point and firing. This outta be pretty good.

Mia Lambson who shoots all of The Brighton Perspective video parts had this to say about Cam, “throw some Beer, hip hop, Tinder, a few bad jokes and snowboarding into a proverbial blender, and pour yourself a tall glass of Cam Pierce. Spending just a few moments with this Justin-Timberlake-looking rascal, it’s clear that he’s all about a good time. When there’s work to be done, however, a switch is flipped and you can watch Cam’s rowdy energy being channeled into laying down some seriously ballsy maneuvers. Weather you’re laughing on the chairlift, or watching him snowboard, Cam knows how to get people stoked.”
