Benji Wagner on Polerstuff

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. We love Polerstuff. This company is run by good people with a keen eye for design. Poler has filled a niche, and they’ve done it with class. Benji Wagner breaks down where they’ve been and where they’re going. I’m still waiting to see how the surf team will progress…..get on that shit boys. Go support these guys and get some stuff.

Scotty Stoked on Stance

Stance is awesome…Scotty’s our hero….perfect fit.


Alex Andrews Full Part…from Cole Taylor

How do you know you live in Utah? Kids like Alex clip passes from you when they were groms, and your god son  films their shit only to blow up for the world to see. Stoked for these guys.


Lots of hate for Shaun White…

Ok yeah we get it….you’re so core that you hate Shaun White. Call him a ginger, call him a kook, call him bad for snowboarding even. It does no good. First off….pretty much nothing is “core” in snowboarding anyway, and all I can say is you shouldn’t spend time and energy on hate. All of the above things about Shaun are true in my opinion. Even when he was a little kid, the front line kids working at Surf Ride could tell you stories of White arrogance and entitlement (mostly from his mom back then). He wins a lot of contests, he likes to spin and flip really high, he wears horrible tight clothing, and he thinks his shit only smells like heirloom (flying) tomatoes. All that said, he’s not why you got into snowboarding.

He’s not ruining anything about snowboarding (at least not anymore than the rest of the fat cats) for me. I still get to wake up in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains. I still get to be up the cottonwoods early on a pow day with my friends and family. I still get to have that feeling of cruising through trees, while leaning back to keep the nose “above water”. I still get to float big..slow…backside 180′s. Simply put, I still get to stand sideways on snow.

I get to do all of this because 30 years or so ago, a handful of people like me decided that they would just go out and try something new. Those guys are the reason that Shaun White gets to do all of this as well. Ultimately his association shouldn’t affect your life. Find inspiration from the people that mean something to you in snowboarding.

If you really care that much about the kid….then you’re probably snowboarding for the wrong reasons. I know it sucks when something you truly love gets profiled through the lens of a douchebag though. No one wants that. But when you really know why you love something, then the sun shining on a steaming turd shouldn’t bother you. Go find yourself exhausted and quad blown on a bluebird powder day, and then ask yourself….does Shaun White really give a fuck about what I think?


DVS up for auction?

Got a few million on hand? If so then you….yes you…have the potential to purchase DVS Shoes. On June 13th there will be an auction to see who can bail Brian, Kevin, and The Gav out of bankruptcy. It looks like they’ve been doing everything they can to keep that ship afloat. We wish all the boys well (still can’t believe dude is VP of anything). Check the details over at TW Business, and start saving some dough…..shit it’ll probably be an energy drink company.
