Signal’s All About The LED Base

by The Editors on January 18, 2018

After being gone for nearly a year Signal Snowboard’s Every Third Thursday is back with a little taste from of our collective digital futures. Here’s how they’re pitching it:
Decentralized currency, hyper loop travel, and yes, smart wearables and shreddables. After almost a year off from the last ETT, No Board Left Behind, we bring you the first LED progammable base. 
Ground effects, dawg. It’s the perfect board for those times we’d like to communicate from the lift.  We kinda want one. . .

With all this news about Bam Margera having a baby, then getting arrested, and then getting shipped off to rehab with a little help from Element’s Johnny Scillereff, the datapoint that keeps tripping us up is this — it was Bam’s first DUI!

Marc McKee To The Nines

by The Editors on January 9, 2018

Marc McKee is one of the nicest, most modest, talented visual artists ever to grace the skateboard industry. And when you check out some of the graphics he created during the 90s glory days of World Industries that can be a bit of a mind slip because his artwork stirred it up so hard. But just click play and let him tell you all about Big Brother magazine, how he created Flameboy, Wet WillyDevil man, and so much more.

Oh, and for some background on The Nine Club, click here for a great interview on Jenkem.

Dusty Payne Goes Down At Backdoor

by The Editors on January 9, 2018

The 2017 Pipeline trials winner Dusty Payne took off on a Backdoor monster yesterday morning (Monday, January 8, 2017) and was driven into the reef where he was knocked unconscious, according to a story on Surfline.com.

“I was paddling back out to Pipe and I saw Dusty going for the wave,” said Big Island charger Jimmy “Ulu Boi” Napeahi. “It was a super steep drop, right where you don’t want to fall. So when he fell, I knew it was a nuts wipeout and started paying attention. Pretty soon, Keoki [Saguibo, longtime North Shore photog] yelled — I caught a little wave and beelined to Dusty and tugged on his leash to see if he was there.. . . Ulu Boy continued: “Keoki pulled him up and was holding his neck; I had his legs straddled around my waist and my hands on his back so his neck was straight. Luckily, Keoki is a strong swimmer and a really good communicator. He was facing the waves and would call out when one was coming so we could spin sideways and go under. It was gnarly, ‘cause there was so much blood; it looked like Dusty hit his forehead on the reef and he was foaming at the mouth.. . . “Finally, we got him to the beach and there was a lot of people there so we let the experts take over. And I don’t how bad it is — but Dusty was yelling and swearing right before getting in the ambulance, and that’s the best thing I have in my mind right now.”

Payne was reportedly conscious and at the hospital yesterday afternoon. Our thoughts are with him. We hope he escaped any permanent damage and that he has a speedy recovery.

Scott Lenhardt + PowderJet Sunday Mornings

by The Editors on January 8, 2018

Jesse Loomis, the purveyor of PowderJet Snowboards has finally teamed up with artist Scott Lenhardt for some snowboard graphics. Here, we’ll let him explain:

We’ve been best bros and riding buddies since the early ’90’s. I build custom snowboards in Vermont. He’s an artist that’s done over 50 snowboard graphics for some legendary boards, among many other rad projects. We’ve never teamed up on a graphic until last week, and it was an amazing experience. I had three boards to ship out to Milosport SLC, and Scott was lurking here after a Xmas visit. We finally got it together, and Scotty painted the raddest graphics we’ve ever had on a PowderJet. It brings a tear to the eye.

These three hand painted boards will be available at Milo as soon as Loomis can get them there. Anyone who is interested in more information should email Jesse at PowderJet Snowboards. But better hurry, because these boards are going to go fast. For a look at the boards, follow the jump.
