From the Slopes to the Surf

Oregon’s an Extreme Sports Playground

For a guaranteed good time, bring a group of good friends on a road trip to stunning destinations. Case in point, Mediocre Madness, a short film by Tanner Pendleton, Austin Smith and Bryan Fox that chronicles a snowboard trip through Oregon. It was shot in springtime, when the weather allowed for a wealth of sports — skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing and mountain biking — throughout the state, from Portland to Mt. Hood to Mt. Bachelor to the coast. It’s the perfect championing of the lighthearted weekend trip — and may influence you to schedule a few extra days off this spring.
