These two brands have been showing up on the same people for decades, so it’s fitting that Vans and Independent Truck Company are collaborating on an exclusive apparel and footwear collection.
As original manufacturers in skateboarding, these two brands share an influential heritage deeply rooted in the early days of skating’s genesis as well as current team riders from Amateur to Legendary such as Gilbert Crockett, Anthony Van Engelen, Geoff Rowley, Tony Trujillo, Andrew Allen, Curren Caples, Daniel Lutheran, Dustin Dollin, Elijah Berle, Jason Dill, Omar Hassan, Pedro Barros, Christian Hosoi, Jeff Grosso, John Cardiel, Ray Barbee, Steve Caballero and Tony Alva. Hailing from Santa Cruz, Independent has offered skateboarding hardwoods since the late 70’s, providing the functional equipment that hardcore skaters rely on to this day.

We’re not saying we’re going to start longboarding anytime soon, however, these new Sector 9 Skiddles look like exactly what we’d need for bombing some hills.
Lakai is introducing the spring 2014 Echelon collection with two new styles– the Camby Mid (pictured above) and the Albany mid.
Since 1999, Lakai’s commitment to peak skateboard function has made us the performance footwear choice for skateboarders everywhere. Function leads aesthetic. With Echelon, we’ve flipped these ideals with the freedom to design shoes that maximize style, while remaining true to Lakai’s skate heritage and commitment to quality.

Modernica is our favorite LA based furniture fabricators (in fact we sleep with them every night) and the fact that they’ve just done a collab deal with HUF is pretty cool. And even though the chair is green, Keith was nice enough to keep the pot leaf off the logo. . .
Hey all you aging punk rawkers! Vans just made your day with a re-release of four of their most iconic band collaborations. That’s right they will be re-issuing 150 pairs of each of their Circle Jerks, Motörhead II, Bad Brains, and Rise Against shoes March 12 through 15, 2014 as part of their SXSW Music Festival promotions.
Each re-issue has a total of 150 pairs with 50 being sold exclusively at the pop-up shop inside the Vans Village at noon during SXSW with an additional sale of 100 pairs on Vans.com the following day. The limited re-release of these iconic band shoes is only the second time Vans has allowed the reproduction of archived band collaborations. The first came from Vans’ Vulcanized Vinyl pop-up boutique that opened during the 2012 SXSW Music Festival.
If you’re into these collectable, follow the jump for all the details. With only 100 on Vans.com they will probably go fast. [click to continue…]
Summer is right around the corner. Don’t fool yourself. You think you’re going to attract the hotties with that old, ripped, torn, yellowing and mildewed towel from 8th grade that been bumping around under your seat all wet and dirty? Not likely. It is time to upgrade your beach front real estate with a little style and flavor from lost.
They even make matching EVA rubber foam thong sandals to go with them. Follow the jump for the official word from lost. [click to continue…]
Spy is rolling out their reportedly “mood altering” lens technology in goggle form at the SIA Show in Denver, Colorado today (January 30, 2014).
“Happy Lens™ shook the sunglass market last year with its ingenuity, proving to be the biggest breakthrough in eyewear since polarized lenses,” says Travis Tomczak, SPY goggle line manager. “The addition of Happy Lens™ into our snow goggle line—as well as the recent acknowledgement from Wired.com for our Lock Steady™ lens change system—reaffirms that we’re a brand creating innovative products that are both stylish and have purpose.”

MTNApproach that company that makes packable skis for getting into the backcountry without a split board has teamed up with Travis Rice and Mike Parillo’s Asymbol on some art graphics by Adam Haynes.
This new release from MTNApproach features graphics by Asymbol contributor Adam Haynes. The system showcases his painting Silverton—which embodies the vivid and genius imagery Adam is known for. This piece is also specifically relevant because it illustrates the hometown of Cory Smith (MTNApproach founder). In addition to the Asymbol graphics, this model has been drastically improved in both construction and materials, reducing the total weight to 3.2 pounds underfoot.

As if split boards weren’t in enough pieces already, Salomon Snowboards announced today (January 23, 2014) the newest addition to their split board offerings–the 4-piece The Premiere.
Designed with Josh Dirksen, The Premiere’s revolutionary technology achieves close to ski touring efficiency while maintaining torsional stiffness and reducing the vertical movement experienced with a two-part split. An internal straight edge, external edge under foot, and a shorter and wider shape allow for stiffer skis, easier kick-turns, and more control while maneuvering steep terrain. . . “Salomon came up with the idea to do something different, and that has always been the Salomon mentality- to challenge the status quo with new technology that makes snowboarding easier and more fun,” Dirksen says. “The Premiere does that with its lightweight and unique design, it’s very exciting!”
With lift prices the way they’re headed the “backcountry” is looking more and more inviting every day. . . especially if it ever snows on the West Coast. The Premiere comes with “custom pucks, the Voilé universal kit (hooks, clips, touring bracket, heel risers and sliders), custom fit skins and crampons” all for $1,299.00. For the official word from Salomon and more photos of The Premiere and accessories, follow the jump. [click to continue…]
