Signal’s All About The LED Base

by The Editors on January 18, 2018

After being gone for nearly a year Signal Snowboard’s Every Third Thursday is back with a little taste from of our collective digital futures. Here’s how they’re pitching it:
Decentralized currency, hyper loop travel, and yes, smart wearables and shreddables. After almost a year off from the last ETT, No Board Left Behind, we bring you the first LED progammable base. 
Ground effects, dawg. It’s the perfect board for those times we’d like to communicate from the lift.  We kinda want one. . .

Someone told us if we looked very intently at the above photo of Sarah Barthel we would eventually see Shaun White. We’ve tried several times, and . . . nope . . . still nothing!


Scott Lenhardt + PowderJet Sunday Mornings

by The Editors on January 8, 2018

Jesse Loomis, the purveyor of PowderJet Snowboards has finally teamed up with artist Scott Lenhardt for some snowboard graphics. Here, we’ll let him explain:

We’ve been best bros and riding buddies since the early ’90’s. I build custom snowboards in Vermont. He’s an artist that’s done over 50 snowboard graphics for some legendary boards, among many other rad projects. We’ve never teamed up on a graphic until last week, and it was an amazing experience. I had three boards to ship out to Milosport SLC, and Scott was lurking here after a Xmas visit. We finally got it together, and Scotty painted the raddest graphics we’ve ever had on a PowderJet. It brings a tear to the eye.

These three hand painted boards will be available at Milo as soon as Loomis can get them there. Anyone who is interested in more information should email Jesse at PowderJet Snowboards. But better hurry, because these boards are going to go fast. For a look at the boards, follow the jump.

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.
