Vans Hi-Standard World Tour 2017

by The Editors on January 11, 2017

Vans kicks off 2017 with the return of the Vans Hi-Standard Series, an international all-ages contest inviting snowboarders to showcase true style and expression in an exciting open-jam format. With a new stop in Switzerland and a grand finale in California, the Vans Hi-Standard global series will be touring across the US, Canada, Switzerland, Korea, and France. The inclusive snowboard jam will feature an original big air jam format where riders are judged by individual style only, with no rotations over 720 permitted. For the grand finale, Vans will bring a new, non-traditional feature into the fold by creating a unique custom-spec course, where riders are encouraged to push the boundaries of their creative expression.

For all the detail, please follow the jump.

Temple Cummins’ Scooby Snacks

by The Editors on January 10, 2017

It’s always great watching Temple Cummins slide the white, but the real joy in this clip is Austen Sweetin’s hauntingly raw and sloppy version of Highwaymen. It sounds good.

Philosophical Powsurfing with Wolle Nyvelt

by The Editors on December 21, 2016

Philosophical powboarding in the freshest from Wolle Nyvelt and friends. “Surfing changed my approach and how I look at snowboarding a lot.” What is the meaning of all these levels of paradise? Of a cameo from Hydrodynamica surfboard shaper Richard Kenvin. We don’t know. It goes way, way too deeply into the glide.

Some Barrett Christy Just Because

by The Editors on December 15, 2016

Just got a press release from BMBC (press releases are what we do now, if you hadn’t noticed) mentioning something about Barrett Christy and how she’s riding some product they make. (Yeah, buy some of whatever that is for Christmas, please.) Anyway, they linked to this video (Our Best Rider Is A Girl: 20 Years Of Barrett Christy) which reminded us how much we love watching Barrett ride and what a seriously cool human she is. Watch the video and you’ll see.

Van’s Jamie Lynn V-66 Signature Boot

by The Editors on December 6, 2016

fa16_snow_jamielynn_merch_horizontal

Vans is honoring their longtime, legendary team rider Jamie Lynn with a signature colorway of the V-66 snowboard boot.

The Vans V-66 in Jamie Lynn’s signature colorway sees an elevated aesthetic this season, boasting premium material and function while highlighting Jamie’s own vibrant Pacific Northwest-inspired artwork. The V-66’s traditional lace-up boot construction is packed with features carefully engineered to form an all-terrain boot with freestyle inclinations. The Tongue Lock Down System helps pull down the tongue as you tighten the boot at the instep to eliminate heel lift, and the Reach Around cuff strap attached to the inside shell of the boot allows snowboarders the choice of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue, providing a custom fit.

Vans is also kicking down a SK8-Hi Mountain Edition and Vans Slip-Er with the same color ways to round out Jamie’s off-snow Vans kit. For the official word from Vans, please follow the jump.

Burton + Dead Boxer = Greatest Snowboard

by The Editors on December 2, 2016

Someone at Burton loves dead people. We’ve said before that it was because they were much easier to do deals with. But we’re not sure that’s the only reason. Over the past few decades the company has done collaborations with Andy Warhol (who is dead), Bob Marley (who is dead), and now they’re getting in the ring with Muhamad Ali (who is also dead) with the Ali x Burton The Greatest Snowboard.

When pioneers see eye-to-eye, it’s only fitting to step into the ring and celebrate with a knockout. Thus the Ali x Burton collaboration brings two legacies together with a limited release board in honor of the People’s Champion, the Greatest, Muhammad Ali.

Wonder if this boards floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee? Truthfully, we’ll never know. But we do begin to wonder how much longer it will be before they do a Hugh Hefner model.

The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding

by The Editors on December 1, 2016

French snowboard photographer Jérôme Tanon’s film The Eternal Beauty Of Snowboarding is the most refreshing snowboarding vid we’ve seen in years. In fact, we can’t remember when we’ve laughed so hard during an intro. Yes, we’ve been accused of being jaded and salty, but still there is something so downright joyful in the way this video plays out that, well, you’ll just have to watch it yourself (as you likely already have).

To learn more about the film we think is the single most telling love letter ever written to commercial snowboarding, click the link to catch Colin Wiseman’s interveiw with Tanon on The Snowboarder’s Journal’s new website (you know, the one we just wrote about in the story below this one).
