From Snow season to Spring season: The top 5 things you need!

Wouldn’t you know it, another year of snowboarding has come and gone.  Some of us were treated to 30-40 days of riding and some were lucky to get in one really good week long trip.  Even though everyone didn’t get the really good winter weather we had hoped for we can always count on Spring to warm us up and get outdoors.   Spring is a great time to go camping, fishing, spend time with friends/family, or cross train through wakeboarding.

Here is our Top 5 must haves to transfer into Spring season:

1) Boardshorts

It’s time to retire those snowboard pants and pick up a new pair of boardshorts and kick it in melted snow.  We have a great selection from Billabong, RVCA, Fox, O’Neill and may more.

2) New T-Shirts (your old ones are funky)

If you are anything like us we’re sure you have a drawer full of t-shirts that can be retired.  Sure there is something about that favorite shirt of yours, but the ten below and above it can go right?  Some of the hottest t-shirts right now are the Volcom x Spitfire “Big Head” and the Altamont “Electric Clouds” tie dye…because tie dye’s are the Jam!  We have some seriously sick shirts from not only the best snow brands, but the best skate companies as well.

3) Shorts (casual and hybrid)

Sky’s out thigh’s out right?  Sure you can just cut off your jeans and make jorts, but that doesn’t help the fact that your jeans are ruined from winter time partying.   We’re loaded with all the best fits from all the best companies like Matix, RVCA, Brixton, Quiksilver and many more.

4) Trade those Goggles for Sunglasses

How’s that goggle tan treating you?  The best part about retiring the goggles is you don’t have to worry too much about price.  We have some of the best shades from Glassy and Neff that won’t break the bank and will keep the haters at bay.  Or if you want to shell out a little more, then make sure to checkout the Spy Fold and Electric aviators – look your best!

SunglassesFinal

5) Switch out hiking boots for skate shoes

How beat are your boots?  Did you get to ride so much that a new pair next season is inevitable?  Who cares – it’s warm and that means it’s time to go skateboarding.  We’re loaded with that new new.  The Supra Stacks go off…all the new Es Skateboarding shoes are sick…Lakai MJ is by far one of our favorites….Adidas Seeley has superb board feel and they are more durable then they look.  Don’t forget we also carry NikeSB, Vans and more.

ADIDAS SNOWBOARDING – WELCOME: JAKE BLAUVELT

Growing up in Vermont, Jake Blauvelt cut his teeth on the east coast contest scene, which is the lowest common denominator to the international ranks for any promising up-and-comer from the northeast. However, the mountains came calling and a few years ago, Jake had a choice to make. Instead of strapping in atop a slopestyle course, he stepped off the trailhead and ventured into the solitude of the backcountry, and that is where Jake Blauvelt found himself and defined his career. Though he’s been faced with tough decisions throughout his tenure in snowboarding, Jake has followed his instincts with conviction and it’s that ideology that, when coupled with his innate ability to ride a snowboard, makes Jake one of the most popular and genuine professional snowboarders in the world. This is the story of a young east coast kid named Jake Blauvelt.
