STAY WILD with K2 Snowboarding and Airblaster this season with this year’s Happy Hour. The K2 Happy Hour is a 100% FLATLINE twin board that is reshaped with K2’s new “Tweakend” technology. K2 just extended their Baseline Rocker all the way out to the absolute end of the board to create more rideable surface in the tip and tail of the board, giving the rider a more stable platform to press, butter, float, and stomp landings with. Add in K2’s “Ollie” bar and carbon web laminates the Happy Hour gets all the pop and snap needed to stab and grab down the entire mountain. Shop all 2013 K2 Snowboards.

Armada Skis built its brand from pure freeride roots and year after year they’re the first company park rats look to for inspiration. Their team features some of the biggest names in freeride skiing like JP Auclair, Jacob Wester, Phil Casabon, and Tanner Hall. With this much knowledge and experience stacked on one team, you know their skis are designed to get the job done. Stop by the Ski Shop to complete your setup!
Pipe purists will feel right at home with the Armada Pipe Cleaner Ski which was designed specifically for taking on icy pipe walls. This full camber, twin tip ski comes complete with a comp base for speed and an oversized, heat-treated edge for durability.
If you’re into the urban scene and rails are your jam, the Armada T-Hall Ski is stiff and cambered underfoot with a softer carbon-kevlar strung tip and tail to give you the pop you need for slaying urban features.
Whether your playground is East or West coast based, when the soft and white piles up, the last thing you want is the be stuck on sinking skinny skis. The Armada JJ Ski is the answer to your prayers with a 115mm waist and 136 and 133mm contact points in the tip and tail respectively. This ski is incredibly maneuverable in hardpack and rough snow conditions thanks to its Freeride Rocker Profile, so East coasters should give this ski a second look. Get Stoked! Winter is upon us, don’t be unprepared. That’s just dumb.
Nike Snowboarding dropped the second chapter from their Nike Snowboarding Project. Riders like Sage Kotsenburg, Louie Vito, Gjermund Braaten, Jamie Nicholls, Danny Kass, Ethan Morgan, Jan Scherrer, Peetu Piiroinen and Austin Smith destroy the custom park in this beautifully shot short film from Brad Kremer.
