Tara Dakides Re-Joins the Sessions Family

Scotts Valley, CA, October 22, 2009- After 10 years of building her talent and winning the reputation of the “Best Female Snowboarder in the World”, Tara Dakides signs back up with Sessions joining the U.S. Pro Team. Sessions was Tara’s first outerwear sponsor when she first began snowboarding and winning awards and today we are pleased to announce that she is back with us.
“Life really does come full circle… Sessions was my first sponsor back in the day (19 years old) when a girl getting sponsored was few and far between. It’s a trip to come back after all these years with a new outlook and more experience. I’m excited to have more creative freedom with my outerwear designs and to be able to work with such great people who love to ride. Sessions is one of the few core snow/skate companies alive. I say core in the sense that they have kept it real and true with there riders and the people who work hard to build the brand. It’s nice to feel a part of helping build something and appreciated in the process. It’s good to be home!” –Tara Dakides
Tara has had many accomplishments in her career to date from Transworld and Snowboarder including winning such titles as Best Freestyle Rider, Best Overall Female Rider, Female Snowboarder of the Year, Best Rail Rider, Gold Metal Winner for the X-Games in Slopestyle and Big Air, 1st Place Vans Triple Crown, and the list goes on and on…
“I’m stoked to see Tara back with the Sessions family. She is so passionate about what Sessions stands for- snowboarding, skating, music and friendship.” –Joel Gomez
“Snowboarding has a lot to thank Tara for. In a time when women’s snowboarding was not as popular as it is today, Tara was breaking boundaries. She was not only progressing woman’s snowboarding but snowboarding as a whole. She paved the way for the Gretchen’s and Torah’s of today and opened up everyone’s eyes to what was possible. Cheers to you Tara and welcome back!”
- Brett Butcher, Sessions Team Manager
Everyone at Sessions would like to thank Tara for everything she has done for snowboarding and we are very excited to have her back in the Sessions family!
Look out for Tara’s Signature Jackets and Pants with Sessions for Snow 2011.

Tara's ride

Middle of nowhere Idaho

This past weekend I rallied up to a rail comp at Barrie's Ski and Sports in Pocatello. It was a carpet only event so I judged and hung out with the local kids. They put their carpet mat burns to the test and pushed pretty hard on a 100% artificial surface. Barrie's built a cool down box for the feature and later switched up the take off ramp to a more urban set up which was the first I've seen done. Modular, artificial and hyped heavy. They even had BBQ vendors there. A+ for a fall kick off parking lot extravaganza. Back to the report.

Midway up from SLC, in a place I swore not to tell, we rolled up to a field of full pipes. Naturally, skates in the back, we pulled off and headed down some farmer roads to find the pipes. We skated for a bit, it was ruffer (as always) than it usually looks and some gravel in the bottom didn't help. The weather and backdrop was all time for this lil excursion so we maxed out the trip with some skating. We later needed some hydrogen peroxide to clean up some flesh and scored a couple sick hick t's for 5 bucks.
