I actually have a lot of respect for street snowboarders. If you thought “activating” a street spot by bringing a metal sign to cover a crack or bondoing over rumble strips was hard work, wait til you hear what it takes to make street spots hittable on a snowboard.
Not only does it require a lot of manpower to shovel pounds of snow to build a drop-in and run up to a spot, but it also takes insane levels of confidence to safely gauge how many feet of run up to give yourself leading up to a multi-kinker 20+ stair rail where you can’t even kick out of if you don’t lock in (there ain’t no such thing as a cross pinch on a snowboard either).
When we saw this video floating around on IG of Tyler Lambert and his friends from Pseudo Corp sessioning the Hollywood High 16 rail on snowboards, all of those thoughts came rushing into my head along with tons of questions, most notably, “How, and why?” After being tipped off by photographer David Milan Kelly, who was there that day, I got in touch with Tyler to ask him what went into making the whole thing happen and to get the full story.
