January Face Mask of the Month: Coal

by Trish Wilkinson
As the snow finally begins to fly out here in the Rocky Mountains, we have come to a crucial piece of equipment that is essential for riding long into those snowy afternoons and snagging some fresh pow.  A great face mask can do wonders to keep you warm and windburn-free when it gets a little blustery; and keep your face from getting sunburned while slashing those day-after bluebird freshies. Coal represents the most stylish of the functional accessory pieces that snowboarders tend to identify themselves by: the beanie.  Whether cuffed or slouched, brimmed or beret’ed ( I tried it), Coal is known to present a line of understated, comfortable, and fashionable pieces to kit up with on-hill and off. Now into face masks…long past are the days of the burglar-style masks from the crime and horror flicks.   Have you seen the serial-killer looking guy rocking the leather face mask?  (Leather face pun intended)  We can update our style without compromising warmth or performance.  Lots of riders aren’t fond of the full over the head style of mask, finding it claustrophobic.  Coal provides more than a reasonable solution with the over sized neck gaiter styling in the NWAs series. The V Neck Gator has bandana points in the front and back, that keep it from twisting as you get aggressive out there.  Made from buttery soft double-sided tech fleece in an array of colors, this one is great to keep you happy longer on cold days. The M.T.N, or micro-tech warmer, is made from a more athletic, moisture-wicking polyester that, like the V Neck Gator, is convertible.  You can pull it all the way up to your goggles and tuck it in to seal out wind and the elements from your cheeks and nose to your neck and top of your jacket zipper.  This one is more appropriate for a variety of weather conditions, and will keep you from getting burned on those sunny spring days in the park or the backcountry. Coal makes the Frena NWA in the same colors and soft knit rib as  your Frena beanie.  The Nichols NW is made from a cashmere-like acrylic that is super soft and styling that is obviously Coal.  Of course, Coal also makes some great looking option for that rider who likes a full coverage mask, such as the U.H.B., or under-helmet beanie.  Seamless coverage like that is also available in a rib knit as seen in the Knit Clava, and made from the same soft cashmere-like acrylic in the Nichols NWCoal makes the Frena NWA in the same colors and soft knit rib as  your Frena beanie. Avoid frostbite.  Look cool, not scary.  Be fashionable.  Skin cancer is lame.  Keep that face covered and keep that rider out there making turns long after the gapers had to call it a day. February face mask of the month:  Airhole.

From Barrels To Backcountry – Hybrid Snowboard/Surfboard

by Stoked Ent.
Check out this amazing new concept by Signal Snowboards. These wacky guys have developed a prototype snowboard/surfboard. A total hybrid that works just as well in the waves as it does in some sick powder. To test the surfing aspect of it they brought in pro surfer and legend Rob Machado. He was totally Stoked on the board and ripped it up as if it was his every day board. Next it was time to test the shed capability on the mountain. It seemed to work just as good and even have a bit of a surf feel on the snow. Big props to these guys for designing a board that was actually rideable in water and on the mountin. Nice work fellas!! Enjoy the video BC fans.

Space Metal Fantasy vs. Spinster- Capita and Forum

by Stoked Ent.
CAT FIGHT! Space Metal Fantasy vs. Spinster An inside look at the best-looking and most smile-inducing rides of the season for women By Trish Wilkinson Do you have a cuddly fur ball in your life? How about a feral feline ready to scratch and hiss at a moment’s notice? Maybe a wild cat? In either case, the available catnip is in stock this season at BC Surf and Sport. The pedigree for progression, thanks to Capita and Forum, are the Space Metal Fantasy and Spinster. Two very freestyle boards to open the door for girls who are just plain old tired of making turns, and proof that we aren’t into taking ourselves too seriously, while doing some serious shredding. Two dope rides for almost any caliber snowboarder: Capita’s Space Metal Fantasy FK for the beginner/ intermediate looking to take it to the park or, dare I say, ride switch? FK also works for the aggressive freerider and/or park rat keeping up with her homies who wants a super-fun board for everyday regardless of snow conditions. Succinctly stated on the website: “do you want to purr or do you want to growl?”; this board can do both. For those unawares, FK refers to the flat “stable zone” between your feet, and the kick up from the rocker nose and tail. Using the technology from the men’s Horrorscope FK, there is no reason to fear those boxes and rails with the jib-core, 360-degree steel edges (there when you need ‘em), and ABS bomb-proof sidewalls. If you have seen Jess Kimura in Capita’s “Defender’s of Awesome” this season, then you have seen this board in action and watched Jess close the gap between the genders in freestyle snowboarding. She definitely isn’t a kitten, but her snowboard has one on the top sheet. Check it out for some incredible feats from the whole team, one-footed fast-plant flips and an all-around good time. Forum, on the other hand, is keeping the women’s line in sync with the freestyle formula used on the men’s side. The Doubledog technology in the Spinster blends the hook-free pressability of the chillydog with the pop and predictability we remember from the camber days (minus the slamming). With a rocker panel between your feet, camber bubbles underfoot, and rocker nose and tail, this is no beginner ride. Spinster is best suited to the woman who does hot laps all day, venturing into the trees as well as the park, or just has a spirit of adventure to try something new. Never boring, the Spinster is rocket-fast and flexy fun! Both these boards have received Good Wood from Transworld Snow and rate a 3 on the flex rating. Though Capita’s S.M.F. is appropriate for an entry-level rider, either board is suitable for the girl who dreams of getting jibby and jumpy, and is ready to take it to the next level. In either case, the amazing top sheet graphics will have the big dogs barking and the other girls drooling. Back that up with the powerful performance these boards deliver, and you can be seen shredding like Jess before you know it. This season there is no excuse not to have “cat power”!

Tuesday's Ten: Top 10 things you'll need this summer [Top Ten]

by BC Admin

Top 10 things to get you ready for Summer at BCSurf.com

With Old Man Winter slowly (but surely) fading into memory, springtime creeps in.  This is a wondrous time of year as the general public cautiously begins to dress for warmer weather.  This is the time of the year when we see hoodies with flip flops and EMUs with down jackets.

Surfers rejoice, snowboarders begin wrapping up their season, and for those of us who pretty much wear hoodies and black jeans year-round, the warmer weather just gives us ample opportunities to skate.  No more wrecked fingers on cold concrete; no more stiff, creaky bushings and no more black ice at the bottom of stairs. We still love road trips to Vegas, hanging out poolside and getting into some adventures, however. Besides the beautiful feeling of waking up and not having to chisel the ice off of windshields, here are a few more things to help you look forward to summer: Read the rest of this entry »
