The Rocky Mountain Series in a push to spread the creation snowboarding message and get kids shreding will be giving away four 100cm GROMco board binding completes.
If you win one of these boards it is our hope that you give this board to a GROM and “teach’em” to Ride!
A message from GROMco founder Jim Smith
My son was 2 and he needed a snowboard, I was not happy with what was on the market for kids rides. It’s Hollywood/Disney snowboarding or dresser drawer stiff and wide, super edgy plank from the industry leaders. SO DIY GROMco snowboards.
I assembled a press in my garage, started prototyping with my son and his buds and now two years later I have 3 sizes 80, 90 and 100cm kids boards with a veteran coach’s (me) design, hand built with pure creation (the essence of snowboarding) balance, base high for no edge catch, steel edge, sintered base, local wood, pine based epoxy and love in every one! Accompanying my boards is a ”teach em” page on my website explaining how to get a super GROM on shred.
We all know some little guys and gals (cousins, nieces nephews, sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters) out there that deserve to feel the thrill of the ride, check out gromcosnowboarding.com and spread the world of creation snowboarding.
Sincerely Jim Smith DSB
The USASA Rail Jam event that has taken place in Aspen at the X-Games venue has been cancelled for 2014.
The decision to cancel the event was due to a proposed venue, schedule and format change that would have moved the event away from last year’s premiere location. After reviewing the proposed site change for 2014 and the Sunday evening time allocation, the decision was made to cancel the event in the best interest of USASA athletes expecting an experience similar to the successful 2013 event. Athletes registered to compete in USASA rail jams that had been designated as qualifiers leading up to the Aspen event will be contacted via e-mail this week to discuss options. The event has been removed from the Rocky Mountain Series site pending a decision after communicating to the registered athletes whether to refund the entries and cancel the event or use the Rail Jam as a USASA Nationals Qualifier.
We apologize for any difficulty cancellation may cause.
