A Long List of Dead Snowboard Brands

Though the snowboard internet has been pretty dead over the past few weeks, what with the holidays and all, but he History of Snowboarding group on Facebook has been a-buzz thanks to a post on dead brands. Since we’ve talked about this about 1000 times and never done it, we’re reblogging it, and we’re stoked that the Internet has done the majority of our research for us! (If everyone can crowd source money, we can crowd source content, right?) I did my best to sort though the 500+ comments and make an extensive list with no doubles, add a few more, as well as take off the ones that are still around. Of course, I probably missed some…

FootyFiend Needs Your Help!

Hello Friends,

So far this year we have been busy filming for our first full movie due to be released in the Fall of 2014. After two successful trips to both Calgary, AB and Nelson, BC we have started to compile some top quality snowboard stunts.

Today, Jan 21st, the craziest thing happened and now our main fisheye lens has a huge scratch right in the middle of it. It’s no ones fault specifically and just the way the game goes. The original cost of such lens is $3750 on the Schneider Optics Website. Lucky for us, for the low price of $1600 USD we can get a new glass replacement. This is a lot for one person to spend, but if everyone who sees this donates even $1 we will have enough in no time.

We are holding a live raffle draw on youtube for a 152cm Stepchild Powder Sucks Snowboard on Jan 31st for anyone who donates anything. Below are also some other perks if you donate more.

Check out Layne’s Stairmasters video which includes a few shots from one of our last trips.

If you can’t afford to donate its all good, but at least please share on Facebook and Instagram. It helps huge and then we can continue bringing you the most entertaining of snowboard videos on the interweb.
