Vancouver Island Riders find Alternative Groove

Snowboarders gear up for new season at mid-Island shop








VI Riders freestyle snowboard club is gearing up with their club sponsor store, Alternative Groove Board Shop in Nanaimo.

“We were really happy to bring Alternative Groove on board with us last season as they are a conveniently located mid-island shop that supports our youth in the sport they love,” said VI Riders’ president Kelsa Donald.

“They have assisted us in providing our athletes with options for quality gear, club clothing, hardware for snowboarding and lots of support and advice as they venture into the world of freestyle and competition.”
