PORTLAND, OREGON – October 23, 2008 Grenade Gloves, one of the fastest-growing names in action sports, is celebrating its successful global film tour, The Boned Age, by bringing the film home to the Pacific Northwest for the final two stops on the tour.
On Saturday, November 1st, the Grenade crew rolls into Seattle for an autograph session at Zumiez at the Southcenter Mall from 3pm-5pm, followed by the showing of The Boned Age at The Skate Barn at 9pm. Address: 2900 Lind Ave SW Renton, WA 98057; free and open to the public.
On Sunday, November 2nd, the Portland homecoming features an autograph session at Clackamas Town Center’s Zumiez store from 3-5pm, followed by the film showing and costume contest at 7:00pm at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton St.
The film showcases the top names in snowboarding performing stunts on the most dangerous mountain runs and customized snow parks. The cinematography is awe-inspiring; shot with super-16mm high definition and matched only by the tricks pulled off by the infamous Grenerds.
"The Boned Age includes plenty of wipeouts, skits, and the freshest tricks in all aspects of the sport from Magoon creating new rail combinations to EJT–Experimental Jump Technologies," says two-time Olympic silver medalist and Grenade President Danny Kass.
Joining Kass in the all-star cast are Scotty Lago, Benji Ritchie, Gabe Taylor, Kyle Clancy, Lucas Magoon, Travis Rice, The Dingo and Dave England of MTV's Jack Ass. The film's title pays tribute to the 1994 cult classic film The Stoned Age, and features its own version of the infamous "Blue Torpedo" wagon and "gnarly eyeball" seen in the original.
