Remember! Remember! The 13th of August! The boards, the bindings, the boots! This is the season, the season of reason and we all aught to be ready to bomb chutes! Ok, it’s not as good as the original but I tried. Just imagine Hugo Weaving saying it, makes it better.
Anyway, it’s here, winter is here, you just don’t know it yet. It’s creeping into the back of your mind and soon you’ll be searching for video premiere dates, thinking about what pass to get, even looking at early snow tire deals. In Southern California winter isn’t so much a season as it is a state of mind so winter can start anytime I want it to and now seems about as good a time as any.
Like Killington always opening before any other mountain in the U.S. (even if it’s just one patch of snow on half a trail), Burton likes to beat everyone to the punch on their winter site launch. In the olden days I’d be overjoyed when “The Catalog” would arrive in the P.O. Box (google it kids) but now I settle for an email in my inbox letting me know the site is up.
Saving pictures of gear isn’t as much fun as reading and re-reading the catalog, dog earring pages, Sharpie in hand just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. But this is the modern world we live in and at least I get to share my two cents with anyone who’s willing to read my babble.
So, thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the product and find what you’re looking for…in terms of snowboard gear, I’m not qualified to guide you in any sort of larger existential search for meaning in this world.
Cheers! Continue reading

The FIS has made the formal decision to
continue screwing snowboarders keep TTR out of the Olympic qualification process. It comes as no surprise as the FIS nor the IOC gives a shit about snowboarders rights or even acknowledging it as a sport. To them it’s just another sources for them to draw ad revenue from. While I support my many friends who are professional riders (many of them veteran Olympians) I don’t support the Olympics. They’re a sham. A sad example of how something that is so good in theory has been dragged through the mud by greedy assholes hiding behind closed doors. Don’t just take my word for it though, read what Terje has to say right HERE.
Sure the music in the video is cheesy and overly dramatic, but it gets the point across. Whether you snowboard or not please go to WEARESNOWBOARDING to learn more.
