It’s that time of year, movie premieres have begun to roll out in Southern California, and the People Crew started things off with a bang. Riders, media, brand representatives and anyone looking for a good time flooded the Oakley Headquarters to see People’s new movie “Cheers”. The film itself was fast paced and high energy… if you blinked you might have missed a banger. Jeremy Jones got the opener and the stuff that that guy still has in his bag of tricks is unbelievable. Same goes for JP Walker. Seth Huot may have rolled out his strongest part ever with a healthy mix of pow and urban shots. The POV footage from Bryan Fox and Shaun McKay will make your head spin, or at least make you think your head it spinning. As for the ender, Joe Sexton definitely deserved it. Throughout a standard part you tend to hear one or two “ohhhs” and “ahhhs” from the crowd, but in Sexton’s case, almost every shot was worthy. It will probably go down as one of the all time great jib parts. According to SNOWBOARDER’s editor Pat Bridges, “if you are allergic to kink rails stock up on antihistamine”.

Brain freeze is the result from a nerve response causing rapid dilation and swelling of blood vessels. A hangover is the result of hypoglycemia, dehydration, acetaldehyde intoxication, glutamine rebound, and vitamin B12 deficiency. Ordering an "adult snow cone" is the result of all the beer being gone.

If someone decided they wanted to destroy the snowboard industry, blowing up this building would have been a hell of a start.
