Over 30,000 people turned out for the first edition of Air and Style LA at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California on Saturday. The festival was the largest snowboarding event ever to be held in Southern California and proved to be quite the spectacle. A 160 foot high stadium jump jutted from the parking lot, and was surround by two music stages, along with throngs of food carts, vendors, and entertainment tents.

Welcome to the Family – Ojo

ojo-smile-blog

Today we are proud to welcome Canadian native, Dillon Ojo, to the RIDE Global AM Team. Ojo has proven himself as worthy for the RIDE team through his insatiable appetite for chocolate milk, sub par instagram selfies and a knack for acquitting himself from any wrongdoing with Canadian law enforcement better known as the Mounties. Ojo learned the basics through countless nights riding Ski St. Bruno and went on to take his signature style to the streets of Quebec and eventually the world. With video parts such as his latest in Snowboarder Magazine’s Foreword, it’s evident he’s not pussy footing around. Dillon is here to put a hurting on rail riding all as long as there’s some chocolate milk to fuel the fire. Photos by Crispin Cannon

Welcome to the Family, Ojo.
