RIP Glen And Tom

Two of the worlds best humans are no longer with us. I hope that wherever their next adventure takes them, the waves are perfect with nobody out, and the powder is deep and terrain steep.

I will miss you Glen Doherty and Tom Sims. RIP

Actual Human Review: Peter Line at awsm.com
Actual Human Review: Peter Line
Have you ever thought about which one of your friends is the most likely to have a nude painting of themselves hanging somewhere in their house? Well, chances are if you know him, the name Peter Line popped into your head. We all know Peter can snowboard really well and has done this and that for the progression of the sport bla bla bla. Let’s go deeper into Peter. I just felt uncomfortable typing that.

First off Peter is shorter than the average human. He is about the size of an Ewok, just less furry and 30 times more offensive. He is eccentric, which really means weird with money. Pete lives in Seattle in some artsy loft that everyone raves about. I have never been to his home.  I picture a bunch of phallic shaped furniture in his living room that looks really weird, but is strangely comfortable to sit in. Peter loves to cook. Rumor has it that he can perform in a kitchen.  Apparently he was classically trained by the Food Network. I am again getting a mental picture of Pete in his living room filled with penis furniture and nude paintings of himself studying the Food Network. He’s probably in a robe and it’s 3 in the afternoon.

In true eccentric artist style, Peter has found photography. However, I really think his master plan is to somehow convince chicks to take their clothes off for him in his “studio”. I wonder if his studio has windows…or door handles on the inside?

Peter has a love for late nights.

So in summary, we have an eccentric little man who loves cooking and photography and has starred in many blockbuster movies. I’m pretty sure I just described Woody Allen.

The Dingo at awsm.com
The Dingo

These people reviews are rare. For the human in question needs to possess amazing qualities worthy of precious blog space. I think “The Dingo”" has them. ” The Dingo”, as he is known to his 12 fans, is actually named Luke Trembath and from Australia. He migrated to the USA about ten years ago to be Danny Kass’ foster child. Fast forward … now we see “The Dingo” milling about in the background of C-list celebrity photos wearing sunglasses and what appears to be some kind of wild west bandit outfit … or screaming on the mic at various snowboard events around the globe. He even has a television show with his surrogate father, Danny Kass, on Fuel TV. I think “The Dingo” is a great example of the American dream. If someone can come to our country dressed like that and make something of themselves … literally anyone can.

Make Chris Cote Ashton Kutcher’s Bitch!

My good friend Chris wants to be famous so badly that he entered a contest to become Ashton Kutcher’s concubine or something equally as odd. I think he just really wants to be adopted by Bruce Willis – just like Ashton. Let’s help Chris get the gig. Go watch Cote’s video and cast your vote. We can make a difference! WATCH IT!

Iikka Backstrom at awsm.com
Iikka Backstrom

This will be AWSM’s second ‘actual human’ review. Iikka is an interesting example of the human species from Finland. If you’re not familiar with Finland and what it’s done for skateboarding & snowboarding, Google Aarto Saari and the fuzzy little foreigner, Iikka. Now, lets get down to the nitty gritty. Iikka is the closest thing the planet has to a real live Muppet. It’s hard to put a label on his personality. Mostly, it’s just confused. I’ve never seen someone look so baffled all the time. I personally love when he talks to his Finnish friends. It sounds like an old dial-up modem talking to a fax machine with “dude” or “bro” thrown in for good measure. I love Iikka. I hope all of you out there get a chance to meet him someday. I know you ladies are excited. Although, I wouldn’t get too tingly. Iikka is one of the only people I’ve ever witnessed successfully ‘cock block’ himself at a bar. Hooray for Finland!
