FIX IT HERE

Rails and boxes will eventually destroy your board. It's NOT a warranty issue but we might be able to save it for a good street board again. Here's a perfect example of a brand new deck with the entire side wall caved in from one over charged tree rewind. Expect damage eventually if you do the tricks wrong, but we are a shop that will take on the work to keep you riding. It's not always going to work but our kill rate is really good when it comes to repairs.

FOR THE HELL OF IT


Tanner and the crew will be in the Nashua shop Wed to show For The Hell Of It for your viewing pleasure.

LOCALS..WAX UP AND GET READY!



HERE'S THE LATEST ON WAWA FROM THEIR SITE.....OPENING UPDATE

We're getting closer.... with Saturday's 4 inches of natural snow and the colder overnight temperatures this weekend, the snow guns are finally in full force. The weather forecast is calling for overnight temperatures to continue in the 20's through most of this week allowing for snowmaking operations to continnue almost every night this week.

When temperatures dip into the 20’s, we can progress very quickly and our snowmaking crew will be working around the clock as weather permits building base depths and extending coverage. We are planning to be open for skiing and riding by Thursday, December 10th or sooner as weather permits. Snowmaking operations have started on Conifer Connection trail from the summit for intermediate and advanced level skiers and riders, Indian Summer for beginners and Ollie's Teaching Area for first-time skiers and riders..

The long range forecast is for consistent winter-like temperatures to continue through the rest of this month. Our state-of-the-art system and extensive water supply will allow us to maximize snowmaking efforts to open additional terrain quickly as we head towards the holidays. Snowmaking depends on cold temperatures and low humidity – just like Mother Nature we can make snow when temperatures dip below 32 degrees -- the colder it gets, the more snow we can make. To be most efficient during the early season, we strive to get temperatures at least into the 20’s so we can maximize our efforts.

We have the best snowmaking crew in the business and they are psyched to be working hard to get you on the slopes! We will update the snow conditions on the website and snow phone with our snowmaking progress and opening date progress.

LET US FIX IT...

...if you need a good backyard rail board, or it's just not the year to buy a new snowboard. Every EB is a full service repair shop and these clamps have repaired and salvaged many a beaten board. We also still have a few boards left over from last season at 40% off and jackets and snow pants for 50% off.

J HARDY AND JAY L

Connecticut session...same spot Jay almost took himself out on the lower ledge.


THANKS SEPPI!



EB's man over seas Seppi Scholler just sent us a copy of the new LOVE video "Loveolution" and we were stoked. Great snowboarding and a lot of really good skating and skate spots too. ( See you when you come back to the states...thanks again Seppi! )


IT'S DUMPING!!!!!!!

Wheeeew the morning commute was brutal today. Maybe it's just my town but just look at this photo from my road!

OK well at least the nights coming up are looking good for snowmaking. Fear not, winter is on the way.

GRIP IT AND RIP IT



Burned out drills, old files, awls, and thousands of razor blades have gripped endless skateboards here over the years. Every deck thats gone out of here has most likely got some sort of story behind it too after you took it to the streets. There are always a few boards that you'll wish you had saved too, just to look at it and know what trick you did on one random day at some obscure spot. They don't call them glory days for no reason.

RAILS TO RICHES

This could be a nice way to snag some extra spending money this Christmas. Rail jocks unite!
