2008 Endeavor High Five in action.

The 2008 High Five Series boards I designed for Endeavor have been really well received. If you’re looking for a new snowboard this Christmas, this might be the board for you! Take a look at this full product review with Kevin Griffin, along with some footage of it being shredded to pieces. It’s a great feeling to see riders having fun using something I designed.


It’s a little stickered up so if you want a better look you can view the entire series here and purchase them here.

Hypebeast Essentials / Vancouver!

Hypebeast recently asked me to list five things I can’t live without as part of their Essentials series. The four of us who were asked are all currently involved in Vancouver’s street fashion scene. That’s me on the bottom left. To my right is Kenta, the creative genius behind Brknhome, and above me are my friends Matt and Vince (Finale Design).

Today’s my birthday!

Hooray for October 3rd! Last year I went all out and had a Sushi, Sunglasses & Sake birthday at a big Japanese restaurant with about 20 friends. This year it’s Mexican – I’ll let you know how it goes. (I’m celebrating tonight so if the site hasn’t been updated on Monday assume it went well.)

I am taking the rest of the day off and dedicating this PBF comic to myself:

Have a great weekend everyone!

Secret Spot

I went camping this weekend with my old man and my sister. We went to our favourite (secret) spot, my pops caught two fish, and it rained just enough the first night that the fire ban was lifted and we could enjoy smores around the campfire – it was a perfect weekend. If you are one of the select few I have revealed the location to, you are sworn to secrecy. There are only a handful of places like this left on earth. Here’s a few flicks from our hike.
