2013 Deck Specs

The 2012/13 season is right around the corner. These are our top three, highly anticipated boards from our favorite manufacturers including Burton, Ride, and K2. Next week we’re featuring three more boards from three different brands. All of these boards can currently be found on BuySnow.com and are ready to ship today.

 

2013 Burton Preview
Burton – 2013 Custom Flying V
Juiced up and ready for lift-off, the Custom Flying V™ continues as the benchmark all other boards are compared to. The one-board answer for all terrain, its proven design improves power, pop, and handling with evolutions like Squeezebox and Lightning Bolts to energize the ride. Available in two versions, riders like Mikkel Bang can get the best of both worlds with the hybrid Flying V, or be like Nicolas Müller and stick with the precise control of camber.

All mountain freestyle chargers will benefit from the new versatile Hybrid LowRizeTM shape designed with the playful LowRizeTM rocker in the tip and tail, and the responsive level micro-camber zone under foot. By moving the carbon to the outside edge of the board they are maximizing the response, grip and stability, making this twin ideal for going big while maintaining an all around playful feel.

 

2013 K2 Happy Hour 161

 

K2 – Happy Hour 161

The 2012/2013 K2 Happy Hour is the result of K2 leaving their team alone to do what they want with each and every element of this all-new deck. A bit scary really. We are lucky no one was hurt. But, the end result is the most bizarro, genius fun board the K2 team has ever ridden.

Ride DH2.6 Limited Edition Artist Series Available Now

The Ride DH2.6 Limited Edition Artist Series snowboard is now available at select Ride retailers (like…BuySnow.com).

The Limited Edition DH2.6 features the visual musings of Mike Aho, an artist, animator, performer, and producer out of Austin, Texas.

Ride describes Aho’s work as “surreal creations of discontent and nostalgic comedy”.

“Mike Aho’s visual art, film work, and music have come together in recent years to create a cohesive body of work that uses low-fidelity sounds and images to create a world of discontent and surreality that is overgrown with people, dying foliage, and nostalgic comedy.  As a commercial artist, he is currently the Art Director of Marketing for Volcom Clothing and has worked with Drag City Records, Matador Records, Transworld Skateboard Magazine, and Roger Skateboards.  Aho’s music project ((sounder)), featuring Jesse Lee and Tom Hoff from the american analog set, has released 2 LPs and 3 EPs, which received praise from NPR and MTV.com…among many others.  He is the co-creator, writer, and director for the cult-status surrealist comedy ‘The Internet Shack’ for Thrasher Magazine.  Aho has animated/directed videos for Bonnie Prince Billy, The Entrance Band, Mando Diao, and Royal Trux.

The release of the DH2.6 marks the nearing end of the Limited Edition Artist Series era.  The DH2.7, which…will be revealed on November 1st, will be Ride’s final DH limited graphic release.

Here are two 30-second video clips featuring the artwork that appears on the Limited DH2.6:

 

 

2012 Ride Snowboards are IN!

I know, I know, it is still hot in our part of the world. But, you also know they’re still shredding where the snow still falls. And we would bet, some are even testing out the new Ride Snowboards. Even if your on the other side of the world. Too bad South America is not just a car ride away…
