Some Powder Snowboarding in Steamboat Springs with Heather Brown


We have been enjoying a nice relaxing week in Steamboat Springs Colorado for the last leg of our US Mainland Tour/Vacation.
We arrived in Steamboat just as 50 inches of fresh new snow fell in 48 hours time! It was the largest accumulation in 48 hours on record! We have had such great luck on this trip with snow and weather considering how poor of an early season it was around the states for snow and we have been extremely appreciative and taking full advantage of our great luck.
Chest high powder riding in wide open bowls and through the beautiful tree runs that Steamboat is so well known for was such a great experience. Unfortunately, 2 days in to Steamboat I came down with a pretty nasty bug so I have been a bit sidelined, but it is still beautiful to look out the windows, drink hot tea and see snow all around and the cute little chipmunks and birds frolicking in the snow covered trees.
Chris and I also celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on the 22nd filled with cold medicine, hot tea and bad tv!
Soon back off to home on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawai'i to prepare for my upcoming show at The Heather Brown Gallery in Daikanyama, Tokyo, Japan which will take place the weekend of the 25th of March to celebrate the gallery's 3 year Anniversary! I am so happy and proud that my gallery has been a success for the past 3 years and we now even have added some guest artists into the mix to showcase different views of surf art to the country of Japan.
Here are a few pictures from Steamboat Springs, Colorado:

A Short (very short) trip to Washington DC with Heather Brown


Chris and I just arrived in Steamboat Springs, Colorado a couple days ago and celebrated our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary in powder up to our chests thanks to over 50 inches of snow in about 48 hours!
Just before we came to Steamboat, we made a short business trip to Washington DC and were able to take some time wandering the National Gallery of Art. We had a great time and the weather was nice for this time of year. It was great spending a few hours exploring some of the most famous Art ever created and seeing it right in front of your eyes. It was extremely inspiring to say the least. Well, the snow is great, the skies are blue, it's time to strap on my snowboard and get a few afternoon runs in.

Snowboarding in Telluride with Heather Brown

Aloha Everyone and Happy Valentines Day!

I have been having a great time in Colorado with Chris for the past week. This past week we have been in the BEAUTIFUL area of Telluride and have been blessed with over 20 inches of fresh snow since we have been here! The area is so nice and the people warm and friendly. We have been having a great time with 3 full on powder days in a row!
It has been about 15 years since I have been on a snowboard, and I have been missing out, it has been so fun and cruising down 4.5 mile runs surrounded by nothing but natural beauty has been extremely inspiring. Here are a few pictures from the past week.

Heather Brown Rip Curl Video for 2012

As some of you might already know, I have been working with Rip Curl WOrldwide for about 4 years now after starting off with them as their Artist Of The Search in Rip Curl Europe. Well now I have my own line called "Rip Curl by Heather Brown" with them and during the Triple Crown Season this year they came out for design meetings and to shoot this interview. I am always so stoked to team up with them each season and the line keeps getting better and better. Here is the video interview.
Mahalo for all of your continued support of my career in the arts, you keep motivating me to create more!
