“An attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali.”
An interview with Jake Burton during the first ever snowboarding competition in 1981.

We’ve always thought that hoodies could use a few extra pockets, and this Burton Westside Premium Hoodie is the answer.

Cool Hunting previewed Vermont-based snowboard company Rome SDS‘s upcoming snowboard collection. This one above, Mike Forester’s Agent Rocker 157, caught our eye. It’s a take on The Last Supper, featuring MJ as JC and a bunch of other recently deceased celebs as Apostles.
I recently bought one of these helmets from Bern. They are featured in GQ’s December issue. (Jocking my style…anyway) It’s very cool and breathable (flat black was my choice). I recommend it if you need to protect your nugget. They also have inserts for snowboarding and winter that keep your ears warm. Some of them even have built in headphones—a nice touch.
Truth be told, The Enablist has never been on a ski mountain in his life. If I ever was to go on one, I would probably ride a snowboard down the hill and this would be the snowboard I would ride.

So winter is on its way, and you need a new board. Why not pick up one of the new Burton “Love” boards.
Here’s the quote from the site….”Hi. My name is Love™ and I’m on the market for someone who’s looking to score serious action, no matter where they like to stick it. I enjoy laps through the park; long, hard grinds on my meaty Park Edges; followed by a good, hot waxing. Whether you’re hitting it from the front or the back, my mid wide shape, supple flex, and twin tips like it kinky. Keegan and Mikkel love riding me, I hope you will too.”
Try to explain that to your mom, your girl, your sister, your grandmother, on the family trip to Colorado. Better yet try picking up a girl with one of these. Although if I saw a girl riding one …. well, that would be interesting. Here’s the breakdown…..
