Box Serial Episode 1:
Jesse Burtner’s Box Serial web series kicks off with a trip to Obstruction Point, just a stones throw from where the Box Scratcher he’s riding was built at Mervin Mfg.
June 26th, after 105 day break, Pika and I went snowboarding again. Zim, Stantech and Max Poops met us at Obstruction Point for a snow box session to get some presses on the Box Scratcher. It was so beautiful up there and so fun to be boarding again! We got a bunch of legendary pop ins like Chris Saari and some wind and rain but that didn’t stop us. Then we got hungry and that did stop us. Look for more Box Serial episodes coming at your face and come get a clip with us too 😊!
