I get asked a lot of questions about what the Jibyard is, and I wanted to tell you all what it is to me.
I loved spending everyday of my life jibbing and chilling with riders from all over the place, and watching them progress so much in just one day. The Jibyard is an indoor ski and snowboard terrain park, but to me it us so more than that....The Jibyard is my dream.
I have always wanted to have a place that represents what I love most about not just riding but life as well. Life is all about learning a progressing every day. Its about being open to all possibilities. The Jibyard is a place the is built and completely dedicated to that cause. Like the Jibbers who session here every day, the Jibyard itself will never stop developing new concepts and toys for all of you to come and play on. We stared out with 4, and we already have 12 different rail options.
My brain is busting with so many concepts and ideas, and as a lot of you know, I can go on for hours about them if you don't stop me. I love what I do, and the Jibyard is my heaven. I built it because it is what I love, and I am so stoked that you all love it. It means a lot every time a jibber leaves and says it was the best time they have ever had. I cant wait for the jump to go in. I just finished the designs and it is going to be perfect. We will hold a big air contest to celebrate.
Every company who is affiliated with the Jibyard does it out of respect for what we stand for. We dont accept money from any of them. There support comes from a sincere mutual respect. The Jibyard does not believe in affiliating with companies who are in it for themselves. We are in it to leave a positive mark on the NS spirit.
I promise you all that I will never let the vibe the resides here die. Everyone here is stoked on helping each other and cheering each other on. I dont tolerate better riders hating on the less experienced ones. We all sucked at one point, and we all need to remember that.
I have had a lot of emails and calls asking if we are going to build other Jibyards. I want nothing more than to offer a Jibyard for all of you, but the Jibyard name means a lot to me. If I can figure out a way of doing multiple Jibyards without it losing its soul, I will do it. The Jibyard will never become some big deluded setup were the people who run it don't give a shit about you.
The Jibyard is not just an indoor terrain park.....It is my dream, and I am not fucking around.
Thank you all so much for your support of the Jibyard, and Mike and I promise to keep it "yours" forever.
Sorry for the big long story, but I just wanted you all to know how I feel and express my thankfulness to you all.
