Minimal Goggles

Today’s post won’t be so colourful than others. Some of us prefer simple complements that don’t catch so much attention.

We researched the most discreet goggles of the season. But, be aware! a good pair of goggles, even though they may be discreet, can offer you an elegance and distinguish look.

More ski graphics 2010

Once more, we have spent some time looking for the most shocking and original ski graphics, those that people keep on staring during the chair lift line. Those that make us ski looking downwards. Those that we keep in our rooms as part of its decoration during all of the year.

This has been the result.

Atomic Bent Chetler. freestyle-backcountry.

Atomic Bent Chetler freestyle-backcountry

Atomic tries this year with a Japanese-urban inspiration, and surprise us with the Bent Chetler as the result.

This promodel is clearly the best expression of their rider Chris Benchetler, who continues innovating and turning the Backcountry on his own snow park. Booters, pillows, tree taps…this ski can handle with everything.

Its 123mm underfoot , will help you stomp an out of bounds booter as well as not to be sketchy on the landing thanks to the roker technology.

Line Chronic Cryptonite

Line Chronic Cryptonite

Line continues with his crow, but this time even more aggressive, and illustrated by Dan Mumford.

This new design it’s based on the original Chronic, but counts with an even wider waist (93mm), continuing with line’s idea of wide park .

They are even harder and resistant than the rest of that compose the range, providing and extra stability and avoiding them getting bent when you stomp the illest  jumps.

Armada T-Hall

To end up with, the innocent touch come by the hand of these initiation for girls but, be careful, not because they are younger the come to be less rockers. Hannah Montana and freeski haven’t got to be incompatible.

Hand Made Tall Tees

We are going to do a small tutorial about how to do your own tall tees.

As you might already know, it’s quiet complicated to find these kind of trendy t-shirts in Spain, and even more difficult for one of our size with a picture we like.

The materials we are going to need are:

-         Two t-shirts

-         Scissors

-          Needle, thread…etc

The idea is to sacrifice a regular t-shirt and cut it into pieces to obtain a shirttail that we will sow to another t-shirt (which will be the ).


The first thing we are going to do is divide the t-shirt we are going to sacrifice into 4 sections.

We can get rid of the first section.

The second and third sections must have the same length and width; they have to be the same. These are the parts we are going to use as shirttails.

The sleeves compose the fourth part.

Once we have cut the t-shirt, we can sow the third part or section to another t-shirt to increase its length. (the second section may be used to do another by sowing it to another t-shirt).


To end up with, we sow the fourth part to the sleeves of the we are making and it will be ready!


Following this method, we’ll obtain two tall tees for every three normal t-shirts we use on the manufacture. One of them with double sleeves bi-colour and the other one with normal sleeves.

As you can see, the result it’s pretty amazing: now you are ready to customize your own tall tees!

We must thank Mario Alvarez de Beleña – aka Manek – who made possible this article by providing us with the method and photographs.

Today we will talk about Neff, the brand of Shaun Neff. It comes directly from Downtown California, at the hands of pros like Travis Kennedy or Sladics Chanelle.

They define themselves as “a gumball machine spitting out endless flavors for the World to eat.”

They have beanies, bandanas, shirts and jackets, but what we liked were their beanies. Furthermore, most are designed to fit under the helmet.

Neff Wacky

In several color combinations, this is just one of them.

Mythical park-rats gloves, the Empire are known by most of us. Thin, comfortable and fits like a glove. (haha)

Dakine has made a pair of gloves on easy riders inspiration: the leather, the zips, etc… a classic glove design with an outstanding colour.

We bet for whites and blacks combined with purple, mixing them with spiral forms as if they were finger prints.
