Kevin Pearce x Huff Post

Rad Collector - Kevin Pearce x Huff Post
This isn’t major news but worth the mention on principal. The esteemed blog The Huffington Post interviewed Kevin Pearce last week, which is all well and good. KP is blowing up like Nitro. Word. Problem is that the Huffington blogger chose the lamest, circa ‘82 stereotypical preface she possibly could: assuming Kevin was dumb because he shreds. Check it out.

“I have to admit that when I was offered the chance to interview Kevin, I had some preconceived notions. When someone tells you that you just have to interview this incredible 21-year-old snowboarder, lots of things pop into your head. Things like, “This may be a tough interview filled with one-word answers … one-word answers that may often include the word ‘dude.’”

Nice story arc Erica Boeke. Apparently it’s a miracle when shredders can speak. Read the whole thing here.

Rad Collector - Bonfire 2010 Website
Bonfire Snowboarding has just launched their new site for 2010 which just so happens to coincide with their 20th anniversary. Despite the occasion, Bonfire went for functional over flashy resulting in an easy to navigate site that won’t keep you inside on the computer when you’d rather be shredding. The PDF catalog download is a nice alternative to paper too. Go here to check it all out.

Snowboard season is inching closer every single day but is still far enough away that dumbing out on shred videos is the only way to get even a half decent fix. Pow junkies know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t seen it already, peep the hardest working man in snowboarding and his wile crew of young bucks giving a taste of the good life to come. Of course we’re talking about MFM.

He is a world class athlete getting his biggest shine from his dance moves – This is so fucking weird! Via 686.
