Snow on Venice Beach?!?

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 31, 2009 1:20 pm

If you want to see some of the top pro and amateur snowboarders rip it up on Muscle Beach, keep your labor day weekend open! Yes, I said Muscle Beach, as in that strip of vibrant Venice Beach where shirtless body builders and Average Joes alike usually try their hand at the rings, bars, and ropes. On September 6th, the third annual Supergirl Jam in conjunction with the Action Sports World Tour, will take over Muscle beach and dump 80,000 lbs of snow to conclude its third and final event, the Snowboard Rail Jam.

On August 16th, Courtney Conlogue ripped it up in Oceanside, earning the title of 2009 Supergirl Pro Junior Champion and taking home a cool $5,000. Conlogue, U.S. Open winner and gold medalist in the International Surfing Association’s World Surfing Games, battled defending champion Coco Ho of Oahu, Malia Manuel of Kauai, Sage Erickson of Ojai, CA, and Nikita Robb of East London, South Africa to win the first of three events in the Supergirl Jam.

We look forward to watching the third and final event of the Supergirl Jam where top female snowboarders Chanelle Sladics and Raewyn Reid will take on a massive snow mountain just seconds from the ocean!
