ONE LIFE! Episode 3

Flux Rider Chanelle Sladics and her lovely ladies with One Life always put together a fabulously fresh female video. Check out it out!
Here is what Chanelle has to say about the video:

“Last season, we put our heads together and tried to come up with a creative approach to designing our own trip aboard.
The concept of this trip was for each of us to pitch a dream experience and whomever’s pitch was most enticing- we would book it! No detailed itinerary, just follow the snow and the good times, in hopes to creating magic.
Norway, Italy, Canada, Eastern Europe all brought something special to the table, but it was Marie-France Roy’s Spain: snow, surf, skate adventure that inspired us most!
Due to high winds and rain, we rerouted our trip to Andorra midway, unfortunately the rain followed us there too! Most of us were unaware that Andorra was its own country, so this was extra exciting- a good world history lesson as well.
We made the best of our conditions building creative urban features, meeting locals and sightseeing some of the most amazing cities in the world: Granada and Barcelona. World class graffiti street art, museums, architecture and theatre were all on our list- truly making it one of the best cultural experiences for us to date! We all fell in love with the passionate culture of Andorra and Spain!
Thank you local Professional Snowboarder Merlin, “our Andorra guide”, and friend for life! You truly made our trip amazing!

Here is our adventure, hope you enjoy Spain and Andorra through our eyes!

Jake Koia and Team Oakley win the Dew Hut Jam 2010

The Dew Hut was centre stage of the slopestyle snowboard course where the top riders in the Southern Hemisphere went for broke in a bid to win part of the $19,000 cash prize purse. The Dew Hut Jam is the richest freestyle snowboarding contest in the country and is a 3-star event on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour. A crowd of thousands braved the inclement weather to watch Team Oakley’s Stef Zeestraten (Wanaka) and Jake Koia (Queenstown) beat some tough competition to win the event, displaying consistently skilled riding, despite the difficult conditions.

Jake Koia and Stef Zeestraten take top place for Team Oakley at the Dew Hut Jam in Mt Buller, Australia.
Jake was awarded $6,000 and a wooden arrow.

“Wait, is that $6000 US dollars or AU dollars??”

Here’s a video re-cap.
