    -Alex Yoder

    Yoder shifted his career over the past few seasons, and more recently became the only American to join the Gentem Stick team. He now spends much of the winter in Japan, digging deep into the perspective of the snow surf scene. Simultaneously, his style and approach to riding, and even living, have developed significantly.

  4. Summer has ended. No more surf no more fun. We pack our bags and head back to work or school with our heads hanging low. Were in that awkward transitional phase waiting for those winter swells that are always foiled by trips to see our families in the midwest for the holidays. Were growing up and getting old. At least the memories are nice. Goodbye summer. We will miss you...
