Every year around this time there’s quite a buzz around our office. All the work we put in over the winter finally comes to fruition as our 1st issue of the year finally comes back from the printer. To celebrate all of the work, and to celebrate the launch of this years Team Shoot Out, we hosted an issue release/ Team Shoot Out party at our Southern California office. Lots of pros, and industry heads made the trip, and everyone enjoyed the tacos and beers.

This year our Team Shoot Out is a little bit different. Four outerwear teams competed, Burton AK, Nike, Oakley, and Special Blend —And instead of us at the magazine deciding which team we thought was the best, we thought it would be better if you guys, the viewers picked the winner. Check it out for yourself, and make sure you head over to http://snowboarding.transworld.net/2012-team-shoot-out/ and “like” your favorite.
