Hey everyone Paul Brichta here checking in,
I just got back from a 3 week competition adventure. My first stop was the World Championships in Spain. First, Taylor Gold and I competed in the big air in Barcelona. The event was held in Palau Sant Jordi in downtown Barcelona, and it was a really fun event with over 8,000 people showing up to watch finals. After that we left for La Molina, Spain to compete in halfpipe and slopestyle where we met up with Benji Farrow. The World Championships in Spain was a great event. There was hardly any snow there, but the 40-50 degree weather all but made up for it! Everyone killed it on and off the hill (playing lots of ping pong). It was definitely one of the most fun trips I’ve ever been on.
Wow, what a weekend! The PacSun USASA booth in the Vendor Village was a huge hit this year. With autograph signings by our own PacSun USASA Team and USASA Alumni/current Pros like Elena Hight and Jamie & Joanie Anderson as well as giveaways and pixie dust face tattoos by Zippy. Not only was our booth cool but we also put on some amazing Rail Jam events.
