Westcoast Triple Plank Recap

by Adam Levitt |

The Westcoast Triple Plank is the epitome of West Coast. Co-founded by Marie-France Roy and Alicia Gilmour, the three-day gathering included friendly snow, surf and skate competitions, tree planting, square dancing, raffles and a silent auction, all to raise funds and awareness for the Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS).

Locals and legends came out to Tofino, B.C., to snowboard the handbuilt banked slalom course, surf Cox Bay and skate the Tuff City Park. The inaugural trifecta event was a weekend full of good vibes and shredding for all the right reasons. Check out the Westcoast Triple Plank recap to see what it’s all about.

Sandbox Welcomes Devun Walsh To The Team

by Adam Levitt |

Sandbox is honoured to announce the addition of Devun Walsh to their snow team.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential riders of all time with video parts spanning three decades, Devun needs no introduction. He is the gold standard of style and class and just recently, was the first Canadian to be granted Transworld’s coveted Legend Award. We are truly humbled to have Devun representing not only our helmets, but our goggles as well. As a Canadian pro living between North Vancouver and Whistler, the Sandbox HQ stomping grounds (pun intended), we think the addition of Devun Walsh is a perfect fit on our team.

"When I made the decision to start wearing a helmet full time, Sandbox was the only brand I wanted to wear." —Devun Walsh 

You’ll often hear narratives about a floaty switch back 180 transcending any kind of quad cork acrobatics. Devun’s clean and classic style is largely attributed to this statement and one we feel undoubtedly aligns with our brand. We’re not a quad cork. We’re a solid back one.

"I couldn’t be more stoked to have Devun reppin’ Sandbox helmets and goggles. Dev’s a long time friend who I’ve looked up to since the first day I saw him ride. We were both very fortunate to grow up riding the North Shore mountains with Whistler only a stones throw away, it was the ultimate snowboard playground for us growing up. Dev’s riding is so solid yet he makes everything look effortless. We all tried to copy his style but could never pull it off. Welcome to the Sandbox family Dev!" —Kevin Sansalone

Devun’s other sponsors include: 

DC / Now Bindings / Beaver Wax / The Source Boardshop / Whistlerblackcomb / Mount Seymour / Wildcats
