Shaun White Joins The Ladies Of The Canyon

by The Editors on December 11, 2017

It is being reported that Shaun White (who was recently selling most of his homes) has purchased half of a “micro-compound” tucked into Laurel Canyon and formerly owned by “celebrated film, television and Broadway composer and lyricist Marc Shaiman“, according to story in Variety.

. . . property records show a corporate entity linked to two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White purchased a 50% undivided interest in the property. Unconfirmed scuttlebutt on the celebrity real estate street is the other half interest was acquired, via blind trust, by the ginger-haired snowboarder’s fashion-savvy musician girlfriend Sarah Barthel, one half of the electro-pop duo Phantogram.

The place reportedly features a “total of 4,304-square-feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 full and 2 half bathrooms divided between two residences and a soundproofed recording studio.”  Sounds like Mr. White is finally settling down in what looks to be an epic, peaceful spot within striking distance of Hollywood. Nice.

Pro-Tec + Volcom = Helmets

by The Editors on December 7, 2017

Why build your own when you can collab? We never understood, but it’s nice to see that Volcom has realized that having good helmets with your logos on them is a great thing.

“Our collaboration with Volcom is a great way to celebrate Pro-Tec’s 45th Anniversary,” says R.P. Bess Pro-Tec Global Brand Director. “With Volcom’s creative direction and Pro-Tec’s classic styling, these helmets are a must-have for skaters and snowboarders.”

“I was naturally excited to work with Pro-Tec having worn them throughout my vert career and to be able to instigate the never-been-done swirl injection mold [for Volcom] was what got me super hyped.” Remy Stratton, Volcom SVP of Global Skate and Snow.

Jeremy Jones On Building A Quiver

by The Editors on December 7, 2017

We’ve always been fans of having one board every everything. Mostly because years of airline travel made us hate lugging around a mob of boards everywhere we went, but also because we never really knew what kind of conditions we were going to run into and having a board we know works in everything is always reassuring.

These days it seems everyone’s on the quiver program with a board for every different style of riding or condition. But how does it that work exactly? Jeremy Jones explains his quiver theory in under three minutes.

Eric Dressen Joins Merge4

by The Editors on December 6, 2017

MERGE4 is proud and stoked to announce the addition of skateboarding legend Eric Dressen to their family of collaborators creating art-driven socks for countless happy feet around the world.

“Eric Dressen is a ‘Skate Lifer,’ and his skating has been blowing minds throughout his entire skate career,” says Jef Hartsel. “In fact, when I first got to meet him after moving to Venice in the 80’s, I remember being extra stoked inside because I’d known of Eric for many years prior from seeing him in his “Who’s Hot” feature in Skateboarder Magazine when I first started skating back in the 70’s. He was still only 10 years young then, and already riding for Logan Earth Ski, the same skateboard company that sponsored and helped to launch Tony Alva’s skate career during his early years after first turning pro.”
