RIP: Rick “Rockin’ Fig” Fignetti

by The Editors on July 18, 2021

To SoCal surfers of a certain age there was no better sound to hear on a morning drive to Newport or Huntington Beach than Rockin’ Fig’s surf report on KROQ. His reassuring voice let us all know that whatever else was going on in the world, things were going to be much better once we reached the beach.

For decades no Huntington Beach surf event went off without Fig on the mic. His smooth, sing-song vocal stylings came to typify what a surfer sounded like and few who hold a surf mic today would deny the influence Fig had on their announcing style. Sadly, Fignetti died of a heart attack on Friday, July 16, 2021. He was 64 years old.

Laylan Connelly has a great rememberance of Fig in the Orange County Register. We will all miss him greatly. Our thoughts are especially with his girlfriend Andrea Roberson.

Snowboard Mag Gets The Band Back Together

by The Editors on July 2, 2021

What do you do if you’re a creative agency with a bunch of snowboard sport clients and there’s nowhere to place the amazing print pieces you’re creating?

Well, if you’re Jeff Baker and Mike Basher of Axis Media you reanimate your old brand with a little help from the former publishers at Storm Mountain Media.

“I’m excited to connect Axis Media and SNOWBOARD and resume the title’s previous success,” says Baker. “Being able to work with an independent brand, and assemble a team of some of the best media talents in our space, is an incredible opportunity…” Baker elaborates. “The media landscape has gone through some tough changes these past years, but with that comes the opportunity to get back to our roots and allow independent media to bring back the excitement that’s been lost through all of the corporate acquisitions and closures.”

We still love print, and snowboarding, and Draplin, and their whole crew so we’re stoked. You should be, too. For all the details, please follow the jump.

What gives them the gumption to make this claim? Almost 20 years in the business of making masks, tubulars, gaiters, and any other kind of face and neck covering someone down with winter has in their bottom drawer. NAROO designs to be one thing in particular, which is breathable. Then it combines that breathability with a bunch of other functions that can vary based on clime and need. For those of us who love the snow, we need something we can breathe in, something that as prevents foggy goggles, and something thermal that warms and humidifies the air.

For all the details, please follow the jump.
