New Hampshire Action


Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. Legendary, really.


Ian Hart. Lots of tricks, few words. A rare combination in New Hampshire, actually.

New Hampshire. The Granite State. Famous for ice. Also the home of many shredders. Name Drop: Pat Moore, Chas Guldemond, Chilly Miller, Greg Maxwell, Nick Julius, Brandon Reis, Ian Thorley, and on and on. It’s home to legendary face-punchers the NHD, Plymouth State University, Waterville Valley & The Waterville Academy, Loon Mtn., Last Call, Granite Gorge, Eastern Boarder (Nashua, hi!). We went back there last Spring (photog Chris Wellhausen & scribbler Muzzey) and cruised around. There wasn’t a ton of snow, but that didn’t matter. There was enough. We went and visited the extremely fortunate kids who go to shred-school at Waterville Academy. We hunted for jibs in raunchy Weirs Beach. We rode the homegrown shred park at Granite Gorge. Good trip. We lagged in getting this post up. Sorry New Hampshire. We love you.


Ian Hart. FSBS at Waterville.


If you went to school here, you'd get out after lunch to go shred.


At Waterville Academy, we got a little tour of the campus & had lunch with these lucky little shits. Cool vibes, teachers and kids smiling, it makes school almost seem fun. The kid looking out the window is Jack Herald. This kid destroys. His dorm room smelled like jenkem though. Just kiddin’. After art class, science and lunch, it’s time to hit jumps. What a life!



Jack Herald makes the knuckle look a long way away.


Ian Hart, boner. Kai Wiggins, bonker. Waterville Valley


Greg Maxwell, Waterville Academy coach. Leads by example.


Jack Herald, after school press.


Alex Rodway is a fine lad. Granite Gorge.

After Waterville, We took it south down toward Keene and hit up Granite Gorge. This little place is legit; run by riders. They hooked up a session for the Academy kids and were super cool. Thanks for the good times. See you after Dew Tour!


Ian Hart again. Stale over the VW bus. Dudes on the ropetow are like, "whatevssss."Granite Gorge.


Brandon Reis came over and hit the jump. Granite Gorge is rad.


Kai Wiggins, shot in the dark. Granite Gorge.


Alex Rodway playing on the crappy streets of Laconia, NH. Crappy means awesome in Laconia.
