Right.

Shaun White Gums Things Up

by The Editors on March 16, 2011

Shaun White LogThe latest company that Shaun White has taken a bite out of is Kraft Foods. Their chewing gum brand Stride has signed a two-year contract to have Shaun be an official brand spokesperson. White appears happy to make room on his helmet for another logo.

“When Stride approached me about partnering with the brand, I knew it would be a great fit and I am looking forward to working with them on some pretty exciting things,” said White.

White will reportedly be involved in a variety of exciting things like “promotional activities throughout the coming months” including “giveaways, digital and social media campaigns, and public relations efforts.” We hope Kraft’s contract is a little stickier than Burton’s or White may not show up at all.

by The Editors on January 4, 2011

010610 -25After a month and a half of wondering if Winter X Games 15 would include a spectacular performance by Shaun White it appears that both sides of the negotiation have come to an agreement. The mega shred star will take part in Disney’s made-for-TV snow sports entertainment festival in Aspen, Colorado this January 27-30, 2010.

According to a tweet from @Xgames:

This just in & confirmed, @Shaun_White will compete in Slopestyle & SuperPipe at Winter #XGames 15

Wonder how much the Mouse paid Shaun to appear? Exactly how many zeros are there in “butt load”?

Mick Fanning Rocks Through In Portugal

by The Editors on October 28, 2009

Mfrcsearchpod09(Scholtz)Big

Hey, look: Mick Fanning won the Rip Curl Pro Search. It is his third win this season. Is he unstoppable in this title race? If only Owen Wright hadn’t wrecked his ear drum then we’d might have a little better answer.

“Yesterday was one of the best days of competition I’ve ever seen and we all showed up today and had to adjust our frame of mind to deal with the drop in size and quality,” Fanning said. “I’ve been surfing conditions like this all summer at home so I knew what I had to do out there. I was able to pick off a couple of good scores at the start and then I basically had to sit on Bede (Durbidge) so he didn’t get any back on me.”

Up In The Maloof Money Cup

by The Editors on July 13, 2009

071209M  44

Back in the day, the story that usually got written following a hot afternoon spent at a Carl’s Jr. sponsored blow-out skateboarding event in the heart of Orange County, California would have been filled with whining and complaining–loads of it.

There would have been whining about not having access to the proper locations, or about how far away media parking was, or that the event wasn’t treating the skaters or the endemic media right. Those stories were reckless fun to write, but they really can’t be written anymore because those days are over. This was especially true at the Maloof Money Cup Presented by etnies and Monster.

We rolled in skeptical. Anything this slickly produced can’t be good, right? We watched the seemingly flawless Fuel HD live webcast on Saturday night and thought that it all might just be some kind of TV hoax. But when we arrived at the Orange County Fair Grounds on Sunday afternoon July 12, 2009 we discovered that it really was as good as it looked online.

071209M  32The Money Cup was set up perfectly from the parking, to the media access, to the grand stands for the civilians, all the way to the vert ramp/mini mega and the street set up that California Skateparks built. Media got front row seats to the entire street course, and great spots at either end of the vert ramp. The fans had elevated grandstands that offered a great view on the entire event. There was even shaded VIP seating up top for the super VIPs (we got shut trying to get up there, but then so did Pierre Andre (click the watch the video) so we didn’t feel so bad).

The only problem was that the skate action was so rapid fire that it was really difficult to keep up with what was going on. It was almost easier to follow on the webcast because at least then someone was eliminating the options and forcing us to focus on one thing at a time.

071209M  72When faced with P-Rod, Chris Cole, Sean Malto, Peter Ramondetta, Nyjah Huston (pictured left), and Torey Pudwill in a jam format heat skating on different parts of the section it got kind of crazy. We found that they only way to follow along was to sit with three or four friends who we could turn to when we heard the crowd erupt and say, “What was that?” The amount of quality skating being thrown down literally required eight eyes to take it all in.

So, rather than try to get any of it down here, we’re going to suggest that everyone do what we’re going to do as soon as we post this: point the browser over to Fuel.TV and watch the vert and street finals again so we can figure out exactly what we saw. Either way we know one thing: we’re already looking forward to seeing it again next year.

Horgmo And Anderson Win Dew Slopestyle

by The Editors on February 20, 2009

Okay, we admit it: we were wrong. We thought Shaun White would win this thing. Not because he rides better, but because he has a grip of magic mojo. It’s nice to see the judges hanging tough and scoring Torstein Horgmo properly. Jamie “cracked pelvis” Anderson won for the women.

We weren’t there so you’re going to just have to trust this video and the official press release which appears after the jump.
