Shaun White’s Got Halfpop Flavor

by The Editors on October 1, 2015

Shaun White has launched a couple new flavors for the half popped popcorn brand Halfpop (corn nuts). Kind of makes us hungry, but not for Brooklyn Dill Pickle, if you know what we mean. No offense, Shaun.


THPS 5 Having A Really Bad Launch Day

by The Editors on September 29, 2015

Today is the official launch day of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 and from the word on the street things aren’t going well. The above video is a collection of glitches that occurred during game play today, and according to a post on there is a huge update coming.

Yesterday it was revealed that a day one update for the game will be 7.7GB. Hefty, but not unheard of, I suppose. But the difference here is that the original file size of the game is only 4.6GB. It’s unclear why exactly more than half of the game’s data is being saved for a patch, but reportedly it was playable, even without it. Still, it’s more than a little bizarre.

As they said on Destructoid, maybe we should wait until all this gets sorted out. One thing is for sure — there is a reason that no early release copies were sent out and it’s probably because all the fixes weren’t completed yet.



Aeon Smooths Out Rough Action Cams

by The Editors on September 29, 2015

We’ve seen a lot of gimbal designs that looked great and then never really materialized. This Aeon unit looks like it could help smooth out even the roughest hand held action cam footage, so we hope they actually produce them for the public. Developers are calling it the. . .

. . . world’s most ergonomic and lightweight filmmaking tool for creating buttery smooth, cinematic GoPro® videos. We’re putting an end to boring videos with a robotic handheld stabilizer that keeps your camera steady so you may run, jump and move about freely and still get a perfectly stable shot every time.

Apparently, Bucky Lasek, Andy Mac, PLG, Elliot Sloan, and Kelvin Hoefler have tested it out. If you’d like to get one early click the link for the Aeon’s Indiegogo campaign.

Yobeat Went To Hot Dawgz And Hand Rails

by The Editors on September 20, 2015

SoCal kicked off the winter season during a heatwave. But that didn’t slow anyone at the 2015 Hotdawgz and Hand Rails event at Mammoth’s Bear Mountain down. Not one bit. We didn’t drive up, but came all the way from Portland, Oregon to partake in the hot, hot festivities. Guess they’re still into this stuff pretty serious. Good to know.

Burton Releases Series Of Advertisements

by The Editors on September 18, 2015

Burton Snowboards will be releasing a series of extremely high production value advertisements this fall featuring their sponsored riders.

Watch Zak Hale dissect features with Ethan Deiss, and Mikkel Bang alongside Mikey Rencz, as well as individual parts starring Ben Ferguson, Danny Davis, and Mark McMorris.

The riders will all be wearing the latest Burton Snowboarding clothing and riding products that Burton hopes you will buy this fall. It is quite compelling, is it not? In fact, the ads will be so good that websites around the world will post them for Burton free of charge (Kind of like what we’re doing right now). Damn, they are crafty.


Reiter Suing IOC For The Right To Race

by The Editors on September 16, 2015

With no support from the snowboard industry. And no support from USSA. Alpine snowboard racer Jason Reiter is taking his fight to get snowboarding racing back into the Olympics to the courts by suing the International Olympic Committee, according to a Jason Blevins story in the Denver Post.

Reiter’s lawsuit targets the scheduling of the IOC’s decision, arguing the committee violated its own rules when it announced the new sports without a proper timeline allowing for comment or objection. . . “I believe we have a valid case,” he said. . . He heads to Switzerland this week to argue his case. He has launched an online campaign — similar to the one he used to support his Olympic training in 2012 and 2013 — to raise funds to help offset his legal costs.

The IOC seems like a pretty big dragon to slay, but we wish Jason the best of luck.

Rip Curl’s Search Revel Teasers

by The Editors on September 14, 2015

Not sure if it’s just the heatwave we’ve been going through lately, or what, but this little clip cooled us off quite nicely, even if there are one or two skiers in this clip. Why? Rip Curl, why?
