The Pilsner Bush Bash

Friday afternoon I am told that myself and team rider Adam Yates have tickets to the Pilsner Bush Bash the following day, if we want them. We both jumped on it and where happy to be the landyachtz ambassadors to pilsner. The following day we loaded up the Eh Team van with supplies, 4 pilsner/landyachtz stouts, some swag and our gear then hit the road for Squamish.

We arrived in Squamish right on time and checked into the Sea to Sky Highway hotel which Pilsner fully booked for the event. A quick trip was made to the party site where the Eh Team Van was prominently parked in all its glory. Back at the hotel we got the lowdown on the event by the BC Pilsner rep Murf Laidlaw. Basically there where around 250 tickets that could be won by putting a code found on Pilsner 15 packs in a special webpage. Other tickets where given to bars to give away at local party nights. We on the other hand got the sponsored deal which meant everything was covered.

The party got underway at 7 with 5 bus loads of contest winners being dropped of at the Squamish railway station. The venue was an outdoor one which was done up to look like the scene on a Pilsner can. Vary western, complete with a TP, hay bails for seats, green lighting and a stage. Four bands played including Strikers band Loose Tooth. Pilsner was flowing all night long and kept the crowd hydrated. Adam and I got to give away a board before Loose Tooth played, a three legged race followed by a shot gun contest between the winners to see who would win the board. The crowd was pumped. The party wrapped up by around 12 and everyone headed back to the hotel. After a half hour or so of roaming the hotel from room to room the majority of the party goers found themselves at the hotel bar/nightclub. The rest is a blur followed by watching the sky lighten as the sun began coming up. We crashed and woke up a few hours later, helped clean up, ate Wendys for breakfast/lunch and made the drive back to reality. All in all it was a great night, thanks to Murf and Pilsner. I love my Life right now.

You humans consume so much...

... it's almost inconceivable. Here's some wise words that this cat found on the internet.

mnmlist : less

Stop buying unnecessary things.
Toss half your stuff, learn contentedness.
Reduce half again.
List 4 essential things in your life,
stop doing non-essential things.
Do these essentials first each day, clear distractions
focus on each moment.
Let go of attachment to doing, having more.
Fall in love with less.

After a full weekend of skating (wet on Saturday and dry on Sunday), everyone was in agreement that this was the best Gold Rush yet. So it's looking like Whistler is on the slate for next year... can't wait!

So Pilsner is a Sponsor and supporter of Landyachtz...and we love them for it. Check out this little write-up on

Landyachtz ...The Perfect Sponsorship
Jun 16, 2010

Half my phone calls and emails these days are sponsorship requests. Teams, events, videos, parties, etc. etc. etc. Even drunk bastards call me asking for free beer at all hours of the nights. That's what happens when you put your cell number on your business card and hand them out all over B.C. I believe that all these people deserve a Pilsner sponsorship but unfortunately it's impossible to sponsor them all.

We have to be very selective who we sponsor. It has to make sense from a business perspective. It has to drive us more business and sell us more beer! If it were up to me I'd give free Pilsner to everyone but unfortunately that isn't the case!

Our perfect example of a perfect sponsorship is Landyachtz. They have an absolutely HUGE following. The hit our demographic! They are talented athletes and outstanding individuals. But, most importantly they absolutely crush Pilsner (responsibly) and when they are done their sponsorship beer from us they buy their own.

Check out the Pilsner they bought from the liquor store today! This is their Pilsner supply for one weekend! Thanks Blake from Landyachtz! Landyachtz... the perfect Pilsner sponsorship!


ps. Alberta Bush Bash this weekend. B.C. next weekend! ILMLRN!!

Thanks to Murf over at Pilsner as well as Molson...Buy Pilsner (if your over 19) and drink it (responsibly) all summer long!

Introducing the Chop Speed...

This board is a smaller more agile form of the Drop Speed. The brainchild of an employee at Landyachtz who got his Drop Speed ran over by a car. The Chop Speed has a nice deep DS concave with a super tight wheel base makes this guy a quick carver and makes getting from A to B a joy.

Smooth rythems... Rough roads

Word on the street is... the hills in Williams Lake are as rough as they come. Good thing Reckless Ricky kept it together for the finals.

Where my dogs at?

It rained for the freeride, but was dry for the race. The only thing that would've made this Goldrush better would've been a little sunshine.... but there's always next year. Nick knows it's all about the calculated risk... Meow go skate!
