Simon is one stylish snowboarder. He has the uncanny ability to make even the hardest rail tricks look easy. So easy in fact that my old ass thinks I can pull the same moves and come out injury free. Drop has dropped a new signature glove for Simon and it’s pretty tight. I really don’t think it will help you snowboard any better, but it will keep your hands stylishly dry.
Ronin is one of my favorite movies. Starring Robert De Niro as an ex CIA gun for hire, the film had some sweet car chases in an Audi S8. This has nothing to do with the Adidas shoe, except for the name. Well … the shoe’s red … and there was a lot of blood spilled in the movie … so I guess that’s something.
Koston gets a new shoe from Nike. I wonder if it’s going to be popular? I wonder if I’ll get diarrhea after eating Indian food from a NYC street vendor? Guaranteed! Available February 2011.
New wetsuit company coming out of Nor Cal. You know what that means? These suits are made to handle the frigid, raw ocean off San Francisco. Check the site out … it’s full of techno babble convincing you your current suit is a piece of crap.
Yet another chance to talk about Ghostbusters! This time you get to actually be Gozer the Gozarian as he takes the shape of something from Ray Stantz’s innocent childhood.
KR3W now makes watches. Here’s a great example.
Arto is amazing. He’s also Finnish, which also makes him amazing. Finnish people are my favorite. Arto has a new shoe on Gravis that looks pretty clean. That’s good too … because the Dylan Rieder dance shoe they were trying to pawn off as a skate shoe was starting to be the only shoe people associated with the brand.
Yeah … I’m a Masshole and damn proud of it. Whenever I see fellow Massholes making waves … I tip my hat.
Yobeat is an online magazine (is this even possible?) that likes to poke fun at the snowboarding industry. I’m all for that. They now have t-shirts and other stuff for sale to keep their “business” in business. Support people that don’t take themselves seriously.
Whoa, easy there Mr. Belvedere! Nixon’s pocket watch makes you look 10 times more sophisticated as soon as you purchase it. Monacle not included.
