Black Friday, is the day after Thanksgiving. It’s a day when people line up by the hundreds around Best Buy to save $30 on a new Wii, or trample people in a Wal Mart doorway to score a George Foreman grill at a DEEP DISCOUNT. On a much better note, it’s a great time to grab some new snowboard gear.

Shred shops will be packed this Friday November 26th, and your local shop guys will be working their asses off. Rome SDS wants to hook you up, by hooking them up on this busy day.
The first 3 people in each time zone (eastern, central, mountain, and pacific), to email in a photo of themselves are going to get hooked up, but first you have to hook up your shop. Just bring your local shop some coffee, donuts, or maybe even breakfast sandwiches or burritos (if you’re looking for hero status), snap a photo for proof and we’ll hook you up with some Rome SDS Old 561 Mitts if you’re one of the first 3 in your zone.
Email photo proof to winner@romesnowboards.com, and make sure to include your full mailing address as well as your time zone. Worst case scenario is you hook up your local shop with some breakfast goodness and are a little late on the email and don’t win. You’re still hooking up a crew that has most likely hooked you up in the past with the right gear and some high fives.

Unions are dumping into the stores just in time for the "big holiday weekend." EB Forces, DK Pro, DLX, Contacts, Force.... and more in the next couple days.


Ian and Zane Bradley from Andy Alvarez on Vimeo.

"Ian and Zane are 14 and 16 years old. They are two of the coolest little kids out there. They both shred hard, and have a great sense of humor. Here is a quick edit of the two of them from a recent trip to Woodward Camp." Clip and blurb taken from Andy Alvarez.

We're still receiving new snow product for 2011. Recently DC has been coming in the doors along with 686, Never Summer, K2, Ride, Air Hole, and more. We have a great mix of boards for any style of rider. If you're a beginner, three beers deep, aggressive freerider, all mountain ruler, jump, or technical jib shred it's here in the shop. If you want ... rocker, camber, reverse rocker, magna traction, banana, EC2, flat kick, wiggly stick, flying V, jibby jabber, swallow tail, blunt nosed, drop trou, or whatever other catchy sounding shaped board you can think of...we have it. As if that's not enough, we have a truck load of leftover, blowout priced stack of goods on the way in the next few days from the Expo in Boston. If your wallets thin but your brains on shred there will be boards, boots and bindings arriving at 40% off or more.

Tonight with the lower temps the mountains have fired their guns up again. Be ready..we only get a few months of the year here in New England to play in the snow. May as well get as many days in as possible.

Chilly Miller is another New England ripper. He's always going to be the guy that steps up to be the test pilot without bothering to play ro-sham-bo too. Maybe he's a few ants short of a picnic...maybe he's just that solid. Whatever it is he's always fun to watch.

Arbor boards can also be found at Eastern Boarder this winter.

Good stuff here. Clips from Carr, Grendy, Kramer, Langlois and many other East Coast rippers...watch the whole thing if you can.

We all ride locally quite often and day passes are expensive. If you're local to Wachusett consider joining our GPS group and buying a season pass. It'll pay for itself within a few visits. The bronze pass is perfect for morning sessions when nobody is there and later in the evenings when the school groups leave. Stop into the store and grab a GPS pamphlet or when you sign up online for one fill in the "group name" under Eastern Boarder / Leominster to save the most money. Buy it EARLY though because after Nov 17th each pass goes up another $100. Right now the bronze pass is $229 which allows you to ride weekdays (non holiday) and all nights.

Lots of new snowboard gear from Rome, Bond, AG, Oakley, Electric and more...


Before you get out there to ride in the next couple of weeks get your board cleaned up and waxed. Full service tune ups include base grinding, edging, waxing and normal ding repair for $29.99. Heavy board damage may be fixable and priced out when we see what we're up against.


Kovall posted this a couple days ago on his FB. It's too good not to have a look at though. Nothing like schooling a lot of guys that have been skating for a few years.

Bostons shaping up to be a VERY busy week for all of us here at EB. We're bringing in all sorts of demos and contests for those of you that venture into the city to get insane deals on equipment, New England mountain specials and more. Here are two more happenings that are scheduled for next week.


Here are a a couple of the upgrades at Wawa this winter:

MORE WHITE: Wachusett’s stellar snowmaking is making major strides toward moving toward a fully-automated system with the addition of 32 new state-of-the-art HKD snow guns this season. These replacement guns include 3 fully-automatic computerized guns on the top of 10th Mountain Trail which will allow speedier snowmaking start up during optimal weather conditions, permitting to snowmaking crews to make quicker adjustments for temperatures and humidity. The additional new semi-automatic snow guns have been installed on the Smith Walton and Challenger trails which will allow for faster snowmaking “dustings” in season to continue to assure the best possible conditions.

MORE RAILS: Wachusett’s 2 Alpine Parks will be stepping it up this season with the addition of 15 new rail and box features in production by Destoy Terrain Parks of Maine. These new features include 4 new rails – including a new 24-foot down rail and 11 new boxes – including a unique new “connection” set which allows for multiple configurations on the Look Mom Terrain Park. The new features will also include 5 new “progression park” boxes for Wachusett’s smaller terrain park area on Frannie’s Folly. All the new features are expected to be in place when the Park’s scheduled opening in December.
