Laird Hamilton’s GolfBoard Open

by The Editors on May 21, 2015

So big wave surfer Laird Hamilton is reportedly the co-founder of a company that makes a skateboard like golf cart that’s used at Bend, Oregon’s Tetherow Resort. It’s call the GolfBoard. And next weekend he is hosting the world’s first “GolfBoard Only Tournament.” In other words, everyone has to get around the course on a GolfBoard.

Festivities kick off Friday, May 29 with a Speedgolf demo and competition (winner takes home $1,000), followed by a lively meet and greet arrival party at 5:30 pm. The GolfBoard Open Tournament will take place on Saturday morning, May 30, topped off with afternoon libations, lunch and awards ceremony.

We’ve said before that there’s nothing anyone could do to golf that would make us want to play it, but the GolfBoard certainly makes it look a little less boring and painful. The downside — we’d still have to hang out with golfers. Follow the jump for the official word from Tetherow Resort. [click to continue…]

Life Beyond Walls: Highway 101

by The Editors on May 20, 2015

Undecided on where to take a spring trip this year, Yadin Nicol and Dillon Perillo looked at the reports, packed their bags, and bought one-way tickets to Smith’s new home in Portland, Oregon. From there, the two embarked on a 1,600-mile journey down the pacific northwest coast searching for waves and avoiding sharks. Titled “Highway 101,” the second surf installment of Life Beyond Walls shares a glimpse into their journey as they weave down the coastal route drinking coffee and looking for hidden gems along the way.

Baby Shredding With Steve Klassen

by The Editors on May 14, 2015

We normally don’t condone baby racing, but if anyone is going to take their kids snowboarding it might as well be Wave Rave extremist Steve Klassen. And yeah, that front board (and the front flip and wall ride) makes us laugh every time and reminds us of some classic scenes from the old Boys In Blue movies that the Mammoth Mountain patrollers used to make every year.

Alana Blanchard’s 50 Cent Headphones

by The Editors on May 14, 2015

Last fall when word went out that surfer Alana Blanchard had joined up as an ambassador for 50 Cent’s SMS Audio headphone company we thought, “Pffffft, what does Alana know about headphones. She just needs something to fill the audio slot on her sponsor dance card.” Well, our understanding of Alana’s personal audio knowledge has not changed since September, however, we did get the chance to plug in some SMS Audio headphones and you know what? We like ’em.

We’re kind of picky about headphones. We only like in-ears, because, really, why roll around with big Princess Leah buns on the sides of your head all day. And we only go wired because we have enough stuff to keep charged already. How hard is it to run a wire down your shirt and plug it into your phone. Not hard at all. That’s why we think 50’s In-ear Wired Sport headphones are right up there with our favorite sounders yet.

The earphones ship with three sizes of ear pieces and “stay-fit wings” and once we got them sized right they locked in and didn’t budge a bit no matter how much we got rattled them. They also kept most of the ambient sound out even though they are not noise canceling. The MFI cord is tangle free and flat and features a three-button controller with a mic for controlling the volume and taking calls on the roll. What more do you need? The In-ear Wired Sports retail for $79.95 if you click right here you can get them for $42.99.

The 2015 Tailgate Alaska Wrap Up

by The Editors on May 12, 2015

Each spring for the past 8 years snowboard media innovator Mark Sullivan has been gathering the freeride flock at Thompson Pass in Valdez, Alaska for a festival called Tailgate Alaska. An airstrip is turned into a motorhome community springs up out of the snow and for 10 days all everyone does is eat, sleep, party, and snowboard. This year they even learned a few things.

“This year marked a new high point for the event in terms of snow conditions and access to snow safety education,” says Sullivan. “On blue days, riders went out in 2-6′ of fresh snow and on down days they were treated to multiple daily classes, ensuring all participants went home having ridden the best peaks and snow conditions of their lives – but also a little bit smarter on how to responsibly access the backcountry.”

If you’re down with big mountain powder shred scene you should not miss it again. For the official word, including photos, please follow the jump. [click to continue…]
