Iikka Backstrom is from Finland. His native language sounds like an old dial-up modem talking to a fax machine with the word dude thrown in from time to time. He can look and act like a Muppet at any given moment … and he is awesome. Iikka is also a damn good snowboarder. So good in fact, DC decided to give him a pro model. I’m sure this board does all kinds of twisty tricks off jumps & slides the shit out of rails … but the real reason you should spend your parents hard earned cash on this board – Iikka is an amazing example of the human species.
“Her vagine’ hangs like wizard’s sleeve”- Borat Sagdiyev. I think Kelly just wanted to be funny and call something a “wizards sleeve.” I don’t think this board resembles the sleeve of a spell-casting old man in the least. The board’s supposed to be fun & loose … so maybe that’s what Slater’s talking about.
This board is called: Awesome. The best part, even if the board sucks, you still have to say it’s awesome first. ( “That Awesome board Todd Richards designed really sucks.” ) Thus, you compliment me on my board design before saying it rides like shit. Marketing through confusion … genius isn’t it!
Feet get cold. Mine get really cold because I have really crappy circulation in my tootsies. Heated socks have always been a fantasy of mine. If I had warm feet, I wouldn’t have to go into the lodge as much and spend money on candy by accident. I’m going to try these out.
Harold Hunter is a legend straight up. His legacy lives on through the Harold Hunter Foundation, where you can snag limited edition decks & shirts. The Foundation’s aim is to help inner city youth express themselves through positive creativity. I had the pleasure of dining with Harold once in NYC – it was one of the most entertaining experiences of my life. Good cause in the name of a great individual.
ThirtyTwo’s simple, lace-up snowboard boots are called “Juh-yo.” Did you know “Juh- yo” means snow-covered trees that look like monsters? I didn’t either…in fact…it kind of sounds suspect. I did see the Japanese horror movie Ju-on…it scared the pee pee out of me.
You come out from an early morning surf session. It’s cold. In fact…it’s as cold as a witch’s tittie – roughly 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Your fingers and toes are numb. You don’t have time for a hot shower. You have to get to work. You curse your life. You cry a little bit. Then you see them. They’re your saving grace. They call to you, “Don’t worry bro, put me on & life will be all good again. I will heal your pain.” You listen. You slide your frozen feet into the warmth and comfort of these fleece-lined wonders. Your feet smile. Your soul grins. Then you realize you’re completely naked, wearing only shoes – and you’re fine with that. You get in your car & drive to work. Life is good.
I bet you didn’t know you wanted a heads-up display in your goggles this year. With the going trend of bigger lenses and increased peripheral vision, Zeal has decided you don’t need to see anything off to the sides, while whizzing down a run of trees. What you really need is to be distracted by a heads-up display inside your lens telling you it’s 33 degrees out, you’re on run number 6 & you’ve been traversing all day trying to find fresh powder because your friend Brian swears he knows this stash at Vail where nobody ever goes and….sorry, I was starting to ramble there. Anyhow…if you like more information than everyone else – grab a pair of these.
First, New Zealand gave us Peter Jackson…and now this! Sealeg’s amphibious boat is the ultimate. Not only can this craft cut the waves with the best of them, but it can actually manage a land attack too. Traveling up to 6 mph may seem a little slow, but think of this…if you live 6 miles from the water it will only take you an hour to get there & your legs will be less tired!
I found this site, while randomly wasting time in the rabbit hole that is the internet. Many of you won’t recall the days of the iron-on t-shirt. Simply because, you were still swimming in your fathers testicles when they were the hotness. Transfer Nation has more to offer than Darth Vader. There are pages upon pages of iron-on greatness. The real deal too folks…once they’re gone they are gone for good. I bought like 5 shirts. My favorite? A Magnum P.I. shirt with Tom Selleck’s face.
