Encinitas, California – Tomorrow Thursday June 2rd will kick off the 2nd annual Frendly Gathering brought to you by Mountain Dew, Nike, Nixon, Burton, Billabong, Dragon, Amp, and Mammoth Mountain. The three-day festival will include camping, music, meeting new frends and snowboarding.

The crew of snowboarders, surfers, DJs and other like minded individuals who’s bond for the mountains, beaches and dive bars around the world is no clique. Their open policy is, “No one is too cool, no one is not cool enough to ride with us.” Frends want to be your friend, add the “i.”

Mammoth Mountain will be hosting the giant slalom, presented by Amp & Mountain Dew and old school highway halfpipe competitions, sponsored by Burton, at Chair 4 on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday a skate jam will be held at the Brothers Skatepark. Prizes will be awarded to who ever we feel like giving awards to.

There will be some killer camping that will be hosted at Crowley Lake Campgrounds where the official corn-hole tournament presented by Dragon will be held. Also you can get your frend on with swimming, jamming, and having fun with other frends.

Music for this year’s festival will be Thursday and Friday nights brought to you by DJ Modsun, DJ Pat Brown and B-Rolla and a live musical performance by the one and only Led Zepplica (perhaps the sickest Zepplin cover band there ever was). Presented by Nike, Led Zepplica will be held Saturday night at Crowley Lake Campground.

Make sure you plan ahead and bring warm clothes for the impending cold nights, snowboard gear for the on-snow activities, any and all musical instruments. However really make sure to bring all your frendly love. It’s going to be one to remember!
