Eric Pollard Expands Artistic Collection with Launch of Redesigned Website

New online offerings allow fans to purchase Pollard’s full catalog of work

Designer, filmmaker, artist and all-around influencer of style, Eric Pollard, is proud to announce the complete overhaul of his website EricPollardDesigns.com. Not only does the new site offer original pieces of his stunning oil-on-canvas artwork, including the original painting that inspired the graphics on the newly redesigned 15/16 Sir Francis Bacon ski, fans of Pollard also have the chance to collect prints, apparel and accessories that the revered artist and skier has created over the last decade.

“Eric and his work are an essential component in the makeup of Line skis,” said Line Global Brand Director Josh Malczyk. “His attitude, style and artwork help us make skiing MORE FUNNER on a regular basis.”

A longtime Line skier, Pollard has been a part of the Line family for most of its existence. Beyond representing the iconic ski brand as an athlete, he has cemented his name in ski culture by designing the graphics and shapes of his pro-model skis since the early 2000s. His creativity has pushed the status quo in the ski world to new heights and played an important role in building Line’s reputation as an industry leader in style and quality.

In addition to time spent in his at-home art studio, Pollard has been hard at work editing the latest creation from his film company Nimbus Independent. After the Sky Falls, scheduled to release this fall, chronicles Pollard’s on-snow exploits over the last two winters.

“Having such a busy schedule doesn’t bother me. In a way it actually helps me organize all my projects,” said Pollard. “ When I’m not painting or editing the movie I get to spend time with Line’s engineers and design team. I’m stoked that I can pursue all of my passions with their support.”

Blister Gear Review “Best Of” Awards

December 23rd, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News, LINE Skis Reviews, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)



We’re honored to be included in this year’s Blister Gear Reviews “Best Of” Awards! Three of our 2015 skis are featured – the Sir Francis Bacon, the Pandora & the Magnum Opus.

For those of you who might not be entirely familiar with Blister Gear Review, the collection of reviewers pride themselves on honest to goodness with their reviews – “the typical BLISTER review is around 1500 words. We will give you our honest opinion, and we will back it up with detailed analysis” boasts the site.

Read what they had to say!

The Best Playful All-Mountain Ski – The Sir Francis Bacon


“For those who like the looser, more forgiving feel of a tail rockered ski, or who want a light and playful ski to trick around the mountain.

Cliff notes version of Jason Hutchins’ reviews of the 184cm and 190cm Bacon: Of all the skis I’ve ridden, I’d call the Bacon the most versatile one-ski quiver option currently available for the playfully-minded, all-mountain skier.”

The Best Women’s Versatile Pow Ski –  The Pandora

“The Pandora is a versatile, every day ski for softer snow conditions. For a 110mm underfoot ski, the Pandora still carves nicely on piste, but is an absolute blast in fresh snow, soft chop, and more playful, open terrain.”

The Best Playful Pow Skis – The Magnum Opus

“If you’re looking for a powder ski to take out on deep days to search for natural features to spin, flip, and drag, I can’t think of a better ski for the job than the Line Magnum Opus.”


We’re a big fan of their A/B reviews too! – See their recent of the Supernatural 108.

Forbes Magazine – Top 5 Gear for 2014

November 14th, 2013 - Posted by newgard in LINE Skis News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

http://www.forbes.com/sites/christophersteiner/2013/11/13/forbes-top-5-gear-winter-2014/

Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon, Not long ago, Line was a scrappy little ski maker focused on a small, steady trend of parksters who liked to ski backwards. Line still has the attention of the switch-riding crowd, but it’s also flagged down notice from nearly everybody else on the mountain. With the best graphics team in skiing, Line’s boards look better than all others. To go along with the looks, Line’s skis shred, even if you’re not one for riding switch. The Bacon has a tip whose early rise helps the big base (108 mm underfoot) stay nimble enough for trees and tight spots, while its full length can be easily employed when put on edge when flying a groomer. They’re light for the speed and stability they lend to their lucky owners, and, while they may look like a fat board, they’re a perfect one-ski quiver for Western resorts. Just know that when you need it, like when you get that 15-inch dump, the big geometry is there. And, yeah, they ride switch like no other, even if you only do it to coach your pizza-wedging five-year-old down a green monster. Ripping comes in all forms, remember, and some clichés always hold true: Bacon improves everything.
