Companies come and companies go often without any notice. When Omatic packed it in a piece of me died inside because I knew I wasn’t going to be riding anything with BS Tech anymore in the future. Fast forward to the present and Echelon has scooped up their tech along with their designer Jason Kanes. [...]
Some people go on and on about how camber is dead, while others keep talking about how it’s going to come back. Love it or hate it, there’s definitely a need to keep it around. Academy might not be a big brand but they certainly understand about why they need to keep it around.

You have TBT, BS Tech, 3d Base, Snake Transition, blah blah blah etc. etc. Rome is playing around with this diamond shape that elevates the contact points but keeps the majority [...]
Big mountain freestyle is one of those awe inspiring things to watch, but it’s even better to do. The Grip is designed for just that. Utilizing G.I.F.T. technology you would be hard pressed to find a more green snowboard.
Sometimes the little guys surprise you and send you a deck that is just phenomenal to ride. This was one of those decks. With a solid camber profile utilizing their Mustache Rocker, flex, and come on who can hate a board with a fucking Unicorn on it. MarHar made one of the best riding decks [...]
