Lonnie'obster!!!

I got the newest issue of Transworld Snow in the mail yesterday, was flipping through it, and read in the news section that Lonnie Kauk severed his ties with DC and signed on with Lobster Snowboards...Woo hoo!! Lonnie's a rad guy and Lobster is a perfect fit for him in my humble opinion. News like this puts a smile on my face...awesome rider moving to an awesome company. Win win.

Christmas has come and gone...

So, Christmas has come and gone. Mike Vallely has againe quit his sponsor, Powell Peralta, and again started his own company...this time by the name of Elephant Brand Skateboards. Google it if you want to read more about it. I've personally had enough of Mike V and his sponsor hopping/starting up companies. In the coming weeks look forward to some reviews (Flux bindings, TB20 Blu Ray...) and hopefully some random randomness that'll put a smile on your face. In the meantime, check out this OWW'some xmas tree decorated with Judy Garland and have yourself a happy new year.

Creature's Peter Beste collection...

A few days ago I received an email from Creature showcasing their latest collection of limited boards, this time around featuring images from Peter Beste. The graphics are iconic images from the heydays of the Black Metal music scene. Maybe not for everyone, but I'm a huge fan so I figured I'd help to spread the word. Check out www.nhsfunfactory.com for more info...Beste hurry though because these decks are extremely limited.

Review: Airblaster's 'Thank You Baby.'

Fun. That's the first word that comes to mind when I think of Airblaster. I was first introduced to Airblaster when I picked up their dvd December some years back (one of my all time favorites). I've missed a lot of their videos since December, but I was lucky enough to have them send me a copy of their latest effort titled "Thank You, Baby" to check out.......and check it out I did. The main feature is short and sweet. It chronicles the travels and riding of Nick Dirks and Brandon Cocard throughout Russia...awesome stuff. I've always wanted to go to Russia, more than likely I'll never make it there in this lifetime so why not experience it vicariously through some of Airblaster's finest? I'm all for it. It looks to me like they had an incredible, once in a lifetime experience and I enjoyed taking it all in from the comfort of my own humble abode. As with the other Airblaster dvd's,
Thank You, Baby offers a lot of bonus features. My favorite is the one with Travis Parker and Leanne Pelosi shredding some pow at Baldface Lodge. Oh! And the one with Nick Dirks and Jed Anderson skating at various concrete parks is not to be slept on either, good stuff right there. So for $5.99, this dvd is not to be slept on, head on over to www.myairblaster.com and pick it up for yourself. Or, if you're inclined to order yourself any other Airblaster gear, I'm pretty sure this dvd will be included in your order for free. So you have no excuses, get yourself a copy, pop it in your dvd player, and let the good times roll.
