Every year at SIA (Snowsports Industry of America) show there’s always one item that sticks out as the what the hell is this thing and why does it exist? While thinking outside the box is great and sometimes results in a product that revolutionizes what we love, you also get the flip side of this […]

The saying of function over fashion has been said pretty much since the beginning of snowboarding. It’s something that resonates with the purists that want the performance from what they use without all the visual bells and whistles. Thankfully we’ve reached a point where function and fashion have melded well and we get stylish functional […]
Without fail every six months to a year someone else believes they can single handily revolutionize the snowboard world by introducing a rotating binding. This is a topic we’ve beaten to death so point that even the zombies have died, come back, been killed, and somehow risen again to attack us in dead undead horde.
Beanies or Toques depending on who you ask are largely un-revolutionary. By and large regardless of make, model, or logo they all do the same thing. You put them on, they cover your head, you go do whatever in them whether snowboarding or running around town. There is no real differentiation behind them. Well that’s […]

All this means is that everyone that isn’t getting after it while they still can has probably moved on to other endeavors or started the seasonal bitching of how are they […]
Originality is completely dead! It has all been done, too death! There is nothing new coming out, instead we opt to regurgitate old ideas over and over to sell to the masses as something new. Truthfully this is the zombie apocalypse that everyone these day seems to prep for. It isn’t in the sense of […]
Chances are if you snowboard you probably do some other cross over activities like skateboarding, wakeboarding, skim boarding, wrong boarding, and the such. With all these various board sports you probably find yourself plunking down a good chunk of change across all the various seasons of enjoyment. Well relax it seems someone has invented the […]
It’s Monday, if you live in the United States you just had a four day weekend of hard partying and major relaxing. Being back to work is not helping your stoke level. You’re probably sitting behind your desk in that cubicle or checking your smart phone trying to find something to satisfy your lust for […]
