Oakley, Volcom, EB
The Eastern Boarder van is a way to give back to a group of kids who display love and dedication for snowboarding. Since those involved all hail from the East Coast, the van makes it easier in terms of travel, for a bunch of broke snowboarders subjected to the fluctuating weather at the hands of Mother Nature. Over the course of the season, the van will be traveling all around the East with talk of a possible West Coast adventure. The trip will be documented in affiliation with Keep the Change, so keep posted for video's, photo's, and write up's to follow.
Were going to make a series of edits throughout the winter showing all the dumb things that we do...keep posted!

The Legacy : Mid-wide all mountain freestyle
A wider version of the SL, this deck dominates every part of the mountain from parks, to pow, to steeps. Its width eliminates most toe and heel drag, but is narrow enough to be quick and responsive. A deeper sidecut, the Carbon VXR and powerful flex make it the most versatile, high-performance mid-wide board we’ve ever built!
The SL : Type: All mountain freestyle
This all terrain, all condition ride is our most popular and versatile model. For 2011/12 we have modified our Custom Flight Core to reduce weight and increase pop. We’ve also added the Carbon VXR Laminate Technology to the SL adding powerful edge response and control. The lightweight RDS 2 Damping System provides the perfect balance of freeride vibration absorption and freestyle liveliness. Slightly setback for powder floatation but centered enough for spinning and carving, this one board quiver excels on hardpack, in the park, natural features and all around freeriding. Handcrafted in Denver, Colorado, the SL has once again set the standard for all mountain freestyle performance, versatility and durability.
The Premier F1 : TYPE: Freeride
Our high performance Premier F1 takes freeride technology to a whole new level! The Carbon V-Twin Laminate Technology and custom F1 Elastomeric Stabilizers underfoot increase edgehold and vibration absorption in any snow condition. With the NS freeride technology, the Premier F1 will power through anything in its path keeping you on edge and in complete control at any speed. The modified NS Custom Flightcore also incorporates a multi-flex profile giving the Premier a powerful tail flex and a more responsive mid flex. For unmatched carving ability, powder floatation and effortless turn initiation, the F1 has arrived.
