The search is on. Within their third month on the scene, Global Mind Elevation snowboards is taking their new boards and east coast rider/videographer on a westbound journey. Their mission: host a two-day demo event to extend the brand's footing, film an edit, and scout for new riders at Timberline Lodge in Oregon, May 28-29.
"This is our first big step toward globalizing the company," says GME Owner, Justin Marti. "This event is all about letting people know we are everywhere, knockin' down borders, and spanning geographic boundaries, just like the sport."
After a successful round of demos in Vermont this spring, Global Mind Elevation is quickly building a following among east coast shredders. The Mt. Hood event, aptly named 'Northwest Descent', will be the brand's first west coast demo. Along with their quiver of boards they will be bringing Ian Post from I Heart Snow Productions to film some new edits featuring demo attendees in action. Marti, along with GME co-founder and lead designer, Viktoria Ebenbeck, will be on hand to meet with potential riders.
Along with the usual swag fare, the company will give away a new board at the end of the demo on Sunday.
