Updown Mag #13 | Behind the Cover

10 September 2009, 16.42 | Posted in films, magazines, online, snowboarding | No comments »

The new issue of Updown has E-Man Anderson on the cover with a pretty gnarly gash in his face that has a lot of people wondering. “Hollywood magic?” The answer, of course, is heck no, they’re Canadian. So in response they’ve released this behind the cover video to set the record exactly straight. Speaking of E-Man – you can peep his part and the entire movie of This Video Sucks at either the ThirtyTwo, Stepchild, Transworld, or Onboard sites starting yesterday. The video doesn’t really suck.

Rad Collector - Neff Boombox
Another banger from Neff today, this time in the form of their new embeddable boombox music player. Now any music starved shred blogger can embed the Neff Boombox into the back end (no homo) of their blog for an endless stream of Neff approved heat from Hyper Crush, Girl Talk, Steve Aoki, and more. Songs are skippable and the Atari graphics of the box are kinda fun to zone out on too. Get the player here.

Rad Collector - Ambiguous "Circus" Online Tradeshow
In some interesting business news, Ambiguous clothing is launching something called The Circus, a totally online wholesaling system that eliminates the need for tradeshows or meetings at all for that matter. Now select retailers can enroll in the password protected program and get access to an online ordering system as well as marketing collateral and dealer specials. Referring to it as an “online tradeshow,” Ambiguous president David Patri said this, “Buyers that are unable to afford or attend tradeshows will now have a way to view the new line and get a complete feel for the company.” Definitely not a bad concept although there’s still got to be some human contact, no? It will be interesting to see if other brands follow suit.

Oakley has announced a rad project for this winter with “Tracking Eero” a multi-media project following the winter of Finnish super shred Eero Ettala. The project, a joint effort between Oakley’s 1242 Productions and Friday Productions, the crew that did “Terje’s Season’s Pass” on Fuel, will consist of a television series, webisodes and a documentary video. “Tracking Eero” will follow Eero from Russian military zones to Japanese pow to Heli shredding in BC and will also feature appearances from Nicolas Muller, Danny Kass, Eiki Helgason, Torstein Horgmo, Terje Haakonsen, Jake Blauvelt, Eric Botner and Kevin Pearce. Ettala himslef pushed the idea saying “I wanted to do something different from my usual season filming a video part. The idea of a TV show, webisodes and a snowboard movie gave me the chance to go anywhere in the world, ride with whoever I wanted and really try some new things.”

‘Tracking Eero’ will air on international television networks throughout the ’09-’10 winter, including FUEL TV, NRK, MTV3 and Gaora Sports. For more go to
