Freestyle Berlin

Who says skate comps have to go down in the summer and shred in the winter? Not the Germans. The country that invented beer and pretzels knows a thing or two about combos and has brought the two sports together for Freestyle Berlin, Germany’s mega-contest popping off this weekend. All sorts of big dogs from Heikki Sorsa and Nicolas Muller to Tony Hawk and Andy Mac are expected to turn the city into the real Oktoberfest from the 9th to the 11th. There’s even FMX and free ski too. Go here for a full schedule.

Rad Collector - Burton Vice Mitt
Burton keeps coming with the hot shit. Hey it’s almost October, what do you expect? Dropping next is the butterific Vice Mitt. Not a collabo with the mag, the Vice Mitt is rather a mitt of all mitts that not only keeps your hands toasty but also conceals your favorite on-mountain vice, get it? The graphic above should be a hint but if you still haven’t figured it out, hit the jump. Then run to one of the Burton flagships stores and hope you can get your hands on a pair.

Rad Collector - P.M.A. Awareness Series
This is the level after the next level, for real. We brought you the Music Series from P.M.A. just a little while ago, now we bring you the Awareness Series. In this powerful collection, Chase Tafoya’s graphics create an instant visceral response on the subjects of gangs, mistreatment of native Americans, Einstein’s contribution to warfare with the atomic bomb, and mutilation and genocide related to the diamond industry. The juxtaposition of these themes against the pure joy of skateboarding is intense; these are some of the best graphics of the year. More looks after the jump.

Burton Beanie Heads

Rad Collector - Burton Beanie Heads
Burton took a pretty rad approach with their beanie presentation for this year’s catalog. Flipping the switch on both regular rider shots and mannequins, they combined the two into some pretty bugged out pseudo-dummies starring their team. You’ve got Terje, Keegan Valaika, Kim Rune Hansen, Marko Grilic, Mads Jonsson, Mark Sollars, Jussi Oksanen, Chris Sorman, Stephan Maurer and Kazu Kokubo’s decapitated and cryogenically frozen-looking dome pieces laced with Burton’s 2010 beanie line. And the beanies look pretty dope too. They are all out now at Burton flagship stores. Check out the rest of the heads after the jump.
