The season might be over for most, except for those few select holdouts that have somehow found themselves in a vortex of winter wonderland.

Rotational Bindings – The Cause of the Zombie Apocalypse

Rotational Bindings – The Cause of the Zombie Apocalypse

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 […]

One Board To Rule Them All

Chances are if you snowboard you probably do some other cross over activities like skateboarding, wakeboarding, skim boarding, wrong boarding, and the such.

Snowboard Training Wheels

Snowboarding is hard, we all get that! It takes coordination, stamina, balance, energy, and a slew of other attributes to slowly master the process. The reward of being able to glide across snow after all the falls is what the learning experience is about. So how do we make it easier?

The Return Of The Snowboard Brake

The Return Of The Snowboard Brake

We’ve mocked snowboard brakes before and it seemed some people were upset about it. Evidently the concept of edge control was lost on them or perhaps the idea of flipping your board over so it’s laying bindings facing down is just too hard to grasp, either way it was a mixed bag. Now here we […]

Getting Lifted By The Lifty Foot Thong

Getting Lifted By The Lifty Foot Thong

Riding the chairlift is just so pesky, what with your snowboard dangling off your front foot and no where else to put it. Sure you could drop that comfort/safety bar and put it on the foot rest if it has one. But that’s just designed for our two planking brethren. So what is a snowboarder […]

Small Brand Social Media Failure

Small Brand Social Media Failure

If you don’t know what social media is you should probably stop reading this site now and and go back to using land line phones and writing letters.
