Steve is a snowboarding legend and here he is holding up one of the first Sector 9 ads ever! The shot is from Moab, Utah, and still hangs in his Wave Rave office in Mammoth Lakes, CA.
The Sector 9 bread truck has overcome Sierra blizzards without chains, giant Mexican potholes the size of a moon craters, Montreal punker riots, and Santa Cruz all nighters. The machine has camped illegally in Yosemite, avoided the mafia in NYC, and has seen more rock shows than Rolling Stone. It’s been around the USA twice, maybe more with all the u-turns. This single truck has changed more lives than Mother Theresa. Today it returns to the 5 North as a beacon of glowing yellow light guiding you to the promise land…
Take a look into Sector 9′s roots, where we are today, and where we are headed in the future through the eyes of Founders Steve Lake, Dennis Telfer, Dave Klimkiewicz, and EG Fratantaro.
