If you flip through magazines with as much style and speed as Garrett Russell (above) you probably didn’t see as much of your favorite brand as you wanted. Well good thing there’s a scanner within 10 feet of Apeman‘s desk. See if you can count all of our products on here…. winner gets a virtual high-five (aka facebook shout out)

Now go out and buy a mag and see how many Line products and athletes you can find!

Afterbang Art: Jimbo Phillips

September 23rd, 2010 - Posted by in Ski Artists & Designers

The Afterbang‘s art is created by Jimbo Phillips who with his father are responsible for creating skateboarding’s most legendary art since the 1980s. The same guy that created the famous Santa Cruz screaming hand. When we were thinking of who we wanted to design our first skate-deck construction ski, all we could think of was classic 80’s skate art. Who would be more perfect for that look than the legendary Jim and Jimbo Phillips? No one. Luckily it worked out and we were fortunate to have their designs on our Afterbangs!

Gone Hunting

Being back in Victor NY can be kinda boring, so some times you need to go shoot some guns.  Lucky for me an old highschool friend knows a guy with some LEGAL guns.  The cops on the way out made sure of that.

Australia Represent!

September 13th, 2010 - Posted by in Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

So what do you get when you take the best riders from Victoria and NSW and team them with Australia’s most creative videographers, pitting the teams in a State-of-origin battle at Mt Buller. You get SoO Airtime!

SoO AirTime is a series of video-based freeride competitions for the Australian snowfields.

The concept is the brain-child of Watkin and Oscar McLennan. Bolstered by a passion for airtime and an annoyance at the less-than-inspired crop of freeride events in Victoria, they started their own. Enter SoO AirTime 2010 and Open Edit 2010. Each team crafts a video across the three days from Tuesday 31st August til Thursday September 2nd. The vids are posted online. You vote from Sunday September 5th til Friday 17th to decide which State reigns supreme. There are heaps of prizes for voters, so don’t miss the chance to have your say. So watch them below and VOTE HERE!
