A new extreme sport is arising throughout the world, and for six years, the Valley has been home to a root sys­tem in a movement to bring the sport of casterboarding to the forefront.

From June 20 to July 3, TJ O’Rourke, inventor of the Timberwolf Xtreem Caster­board and general promoter of the sport, transformed his five acre lands to host Cast­erfest 2011, bringing some of the best and most re­nowned casterboarders from around the US in one place.

His mission was to form a united bond between the rid­ers, banding them together for the future inevitable tri­als of bringing a new sport to the spotlight.
