Spy keeps the artist collaboration goggle rolling with a new goggle produced in cooperation with The Seventh Letter and Dabs Myla.

Crafted by the master painting duo dubbed Dabs Myla, the couple lent their cheeky illustration style to the Platoon in their own distinctive way by smothering it in America’s favorite pastime—hot dogs and donuts.

12 Days Of Gifts Day 8: Smith Marvine

by The Editors on December 8, 2014

Mappbrmt

They were stylish back in the day and now Smith Optics has brought the Marvine back again for some modern, retro flavor. In fact, these shades are guaranteed to make you look 15-20 IQ points smarter. And we all know people who could use the gift of intelligence this holiday season.

Buried in the vaults of Smith’s sunglass archive for decades, this iconic circular frame has a distinctive round shape and vintage curves. Drawing from all the elements expected of traditional design-simplicity, quality and craftsmanship, the Marvine is an authentic blast from our historic past. Proudly paying homage to generations of free-spirited, creative, and thoughtful intellectuals.

We like ‘em in matte tortoise with polarized brown lenses, however, the Marvine comes is six different color ways and look just as good on girls as they do on guys. The Marvine’s retails for $119 and you can buy them right here.

12 Days Of Gifts Day 7: GoPole Selfie Stick

by The Editors on December 7, 2014

Gopole Reach

This just might be the perfect gift for the snowboarder, skateboarder, or surfer on your list who just can’t get enough of themselves (Narcissus, photographer?). Who doesn’t want more rad footage of themselves ripping it up? And that’s just what the GoPole Reach Selfie Stick delivers. The GoPole features a GoPro camera mount on one end and a no-slip rubber matrix grip on the other. It can be extended from 14 to 40 inches long providing the perfect distance for almost any selfie video. Shreds simply grab hold of the Selfie Stick and go. Built into the base of the pole is a ¼-twenty threaded insert that allows for an attached wrist strap or tripod mount for those times when 40 inches is just way too close. It even has a removable wifi remote clip that makes starting and stopping the camera one thumb click away. The Reach Selfie Stick retails for $54.99 and can be purchased right here.

12 Days Of Gifts Day 4: SOL Republic Relays

by The Editors on December 4, 2014

Solrepub Relays

Know someone who likes riding or skating with their own personal sound track rolling? It’s probably hard to think of anyone who doesn’t rock their music when they roll. And those people need headphones that stay where they’re supposed to stay. The SOL Republic Relays are in-ear headphones that lock into the ear canal and don’t budge no matter how hard they get rattled. Not only do they stay put, they fit so well that they block out ambient noise almost as well as more expensive noise-canceling headphones.

The Relays feature an inline mic and music control buttons that are compatible with iOS and other devices, so pausing the music or answering a phone call is as easy as pressing a button on the cord. It’s never been easier to stay in the groove while on the move. The Relays come in five colors (red, lime, blue, white, and black) to fit the fashion plate of even the pickiest of shreds. Replays retail for $79.99 and can be purchased right here.

by The Editors on December 4, 2014

Seems Salomon’s Jed Anderson is making the rounds these days with his wild antics both on and off the snow. Here are some of Mr. Anderson’s finer moments of skate and snow footage from last year. Sorry, while there’s lots of high-fives and bro hugging there is no boy kissing included in this edit.

Victor De Le Rue On The Search

by The Editors on December 3, 2014

More snow shred action from Rip Curl, Absinthe Films, and Victor De Le Rue.

Victor DE LE RUE is an amazing rider who raised his riding skills to another level last season. Riding steep icy lines, massive kickers in the BC or simply playing with natural terrain in Alaska, Victor can do it all.

Yes, it appears that he can.
