Although Windells Camp is a majority of skiers and snowboarders, the skateboarders that come out to Windells for skate camp get the cream of the crop on different skate spots around the region. This session it was hard to miss 13 year old Brody from San Jose, California with his green mohawk skating the bowls and sessioning around camp. The end result was Brody getting the attention of the coaches with his creative take on skateboarding and becoming Camper of the Day for the last day of session 3.

Why did you choose to come to Windells Skate Camp?

Brody: I heard about it a few years ago from my brothers friend and I saw some videos of it so I decided to check it out last year.

How are you liking the camp so far?

Brody: It’s pretty sick. I’m really digging the new cement edition, the concrete jungle to the camp. It’s my favorite place to skate on campus. Bob is the same as last year but it’s still pretty fun. It has a lot of flow to it.

How do you like the skate parks you’ve been visiting this session?

Brody: They are really really fun. I enjoy Oregon parks a lot more than I enjoy California parks. Probably my favorite is Newburg which is where we went today.

What tricks did you want to get this session?

Brody: Right now I’m not very good at them but Ryan is teaching me inverts. I’m also learning front tails and lean to tails.

How do you like the coaching?

Brody: It’s really good, the coaches are really nice and you actually learn a lot.

Have you done any on-campus activities?

Brody: I’ve eaten dinner and slept. I’ve skated into the foam pit which is really fun but a pain to get out. I’ll go down the big one and launch halfway, sink all the way down and have to fish my board out.
