Burton Freelight Pullover Re-Issue

10 February 2014, 16.49 | Posted in jackets, snowboarding | 1 comment »

Burton Air 1 Burton Freelight Pullover Re Issue
As always, Burton has more than a few special treats hidden amongst their expansive lineup for 2015. The first one that jumped out at us at SIA is this rad re-issue of Burton’s original “Freelight” pull over jacket from 1991. The Jeff Brushie designed piece was not only given the technical update to convert it into a superlight shell but this colorway sports a familiar elephant print pattern on the body. We predict this is gonna be a top seller. Take a closeup look at the label after the jump.

Black Samba adidas Snowboarding | Black on Black Samba
What can we say, adidas is killing it. The other boot we had to preview from their 2015 collection is this beautiful black on black Samba. Any fan of the original is going to need this on principle alone. Unfortunately we’re going to have to wait a few months, adidas Snowboarding 2015 doesn’t hit until late summer.

Smokin Snowboards x Grassroots California

smokin dab Smokin Snowboards x Grassroots California
A collab between Smokin Snowboards and Grassroots California that involves THC? No way. As hard as it is to believe the snowboard brand and apparel company have joined forces for a board, facemask, and hat collaboration dedicated to the dab. With all over hi def wax/shatter graphics and of course a stash spot in the hat, this collection is perfect for those living in Washington and Colorado, anywhere else you’re just asking for a felony. More looks after the jump.

If you somehow missed this thus far, congrats on being a Luddite, but please join the future if only for the life affirming belly laugh you’re going to get from this clip. The current Olympic Slopestyle results are after the jump. Thanks YoBeat!

dose | Redman and A$AP Ferg are Mile High!

06 February 2014, 15.10 | Posted in Music, snowboarding, weed | 1 comment »


The latest dose comes from the weed mecca of Denver, Colorado as Timbo connects with A$AP Ferg and Redman to talk about bud and shredding. Fire one up and listen to Red explain that it was him, Method Man, and Cypress Hill who repped that weed life at their own career peril to bring marijuana culture to where it is today – legal! All we can say is “Thanks Redman!”

rome spray skiers1 Rome | Spray Skiers
With so many of today’s kids putting down their differences and riding together in mixed packs of snowboarders and skiers, Rome thought they’d do their best to set the record straight with the “Spray Skiers” snap back and beanie. Yes, the hats are a reminder that snowboarders are not supposed to be down with skiers and should at the very least hit em with a pow slash if ever given the chance. We second the motion. Hit the jump to see the rest.

adidas energy boost adidas | Energy Boost Snowboard Boot
This boot may not be for everyone but if you’ve set foot in a pair of adidas’ Energy Boost running shoes, you’re gonna do whatever it takes to get a pair of the snowboard boot counterpart. All shoe jargon bullshit aside, the Energy Boost tech is next level and makes for one of the most comfortable and responsive kicks ever made. We can’t wait for these!
