The boys finish licking the popsicle that is the park season at Boreal, and then visit Salt Lake to see zoo animals since there are no animals in Tahoe. A couple laps at PC with some celebrity cameos by Ahmet Dadali and Jake Doan and that’s about a cot-damn wrap, kids!
At the end of the calendar year, we here at BroBomb like to recap all the rad dads, moves, and movies that we’re paid witness to over the past twelve months. We’ve seen a host of ams come up this year and put out incredible edits with discernible style. We’ve seen bigger names changing the game, and new companies that are doing the same (I really don’t know why this rhyming thing is coming so naturally today. Just go with it). It’s time for us (Jon Hartley, Matt Barber, and Ryan Dunfee) to recognize our favorite people and crews from this past year. In no particular order, it’s the Top 10 of 2012.
Solely because of The Creep, which is undoubtedly the biggest leap in skiing urban in years.
His tech skills and finger flips were the most original tricks last season. Moment should put everything into this kid. He’s also probably the most posted dude on BroBomb in 2012.

At 16 and bored with the outdoorsy Tahoe routine, Moment skiers Jordan Spohr decided to pull off an ambitious prank that involves crashing through the ceiling of the local Rite Aid in a ridiculous outfit during business hours – what ended up being a solid 22-foot plunge. While Spohr escaped the store and mobbed into a waiting car, the crew were quickly identified and Spohr went to juvenile detention for felony vandalism. Here Jordan recounts his colorful teenage days:
How did you guys come up with the idea for this prank?
Growing up in Truckee is a bittersweet thing, especially in the summertime. You can only hike and camp and do hippy stuff for so long without getting bored. At 16, I was more reckless than I am these days, which says a lot.
We sit down on a chairlift in California in the ides of June with Moment skier Jordan Spohr to discuss his obsession with trains and new trainhopping hobby. Ski wangsters are advised not to attempt the advice proferred in this short film.
…also in case you forgot what Jordan skis like, here’s how he skis…like.
