HISTORY OF FRENDLY:
Frendly originated as a way to bring frends from all over the world to one place to share a deep love for music, snowboarding and the outdoors. Historically we used our sport and collective ethos to unite a diverse group of athletes. Within just a few years it became clear that this Frendly movement was meant to transform the lives of people around the world. What started as an idea, turned into a festival, turned into a community that empowers and inspires people to Live Frendly. If you were ever wondering why we spell frends and frendly without an, "I", the answer is because we believe that as a collective we can succeed to greater heights than on our own.
Frendly Presents is an online blog and content platform in which we have created to allow our frends, fans, and family to join in on the antics while we are traveling the world snowboarding and planning our annual music festival, The Frendly Gathering. We thrive off of creating content that makes our viewers laugh and leaves them inspired to create the same camaraderie driven memories with their group of Frends.
What started in 2010 as Frendsvision, a YouTube channel and website revolving around the wild antics of the group of pro-snowboarders who called themselves the Frends Crew, has now five years later evolved into Frendly Presents.
MISSION: We believe in cultivating lasting frendships that in turn foster collaborative success and stand to rid future generations of exclusivity. We want to help create a “we” generation that is selfless enough to overcome the “me” mentality. Together, life is better.
When we began building the Frendly Gathering we wanted to create an experience that reflected our world and all of the adventures that we encountered on the road while snowboarding. What we realized is that while the places we visited and the people we met were always changing, the one thing that was consistent was the way we showed up for each other as Frends. Whether it was at the top of the half pipe or on the podium, what made it special was who we were sharing those experiences with. From this, we decided that 10 core values that united us as Frends, should also guide the experience at our festival. We hope that you'll take time to reflect on how these anchors show up in your relationships and to use them not only while you're visiting us at Timber Ridge, but also to take them into your daily life and endeavors.
Frendly Presents would not be possible without the support from our partners, who we like to refer to as our Frends. We work with brands that align with our goals, vision and values which in turn elevates one another to accomplish something greater.
