Relive Canadian Snowboard History: The WESTBEACH CLASSIC Doc (1989 – 2000) | Snowboardings wildest party
Did you know that Canadian’s invented real pro snowboarding? The party hard, ride hard ‘Whiskey’ mentality. Well we did and this little doc on the Westbeach Classic proves it.
Everyones done it. The best riders in the world won it. Riders built their careers off it. People got drunk at it. It was the wildest and greatest times in snowboarding. The best part of this whole video is how legendary photographer Dano Pendygrasse is wearing a crooked Monster hat like an inland empire bmx grom. Don’t let it fool you however, this video is full of knowledge. And can you believe some of the wildest ideas that lead to Dave Cashen’s most public nudity were the ideas of non-other than yoga billionaire Chip Wilson who got his start in snowboarding? Is he perhaps the richest snowboarder industry bum of all time?
