Evolve Electric Skateboards 28/05/2020

Evolve Skateboards

Based in the UK, it’s not always that easy to get to the mountain to go for a shred. We’re always on the lookout for that perfect solution to how we can carve like we can on our snowboards when we are either off season or too far away from the mountains. Sure, we can head to one of the many UK Dryslopes or indoor Snow-Domes but they are rubbish for any serious carving as they are way too short and much better suited to practicing freestyle. We can also... Read More

Backcountry with Nicolas and Travis

Thirtytwo very kindly flew us out for a couple of days riding in Laax, Switzerland. It was our first visit to Laax and we were super impressed. The terrain is great with lots of options from super long P60 park runs through to some of the most fun backcountry runs we have experienced in a long time. We got lucky with the powder and although the visability at times sucked, when we got into the trees it was awesome. The lift system was quick and the whole place was super... Read More

Making an Iconic Snowboard 08/12/2016

The Making of an Iconic Snowboard

We’ve been in the business of selling snowboards for over a decade now and we know all too well that the best manufactured board in the world will still not sell if it has a horrendous graphic on it. That’s why manufacturers spend a lot of time researching and hunting down graphic designers and artists who they feel will create an image that they are proud to display on their snowboards and ultimately of course increase sales. The Burton Custom is one of the most iconic snowboards of all time and... Read More
