Chocolate Skateboards Welcomes…Jerry Hsu

Jerry Hsu is one of the best (and not to mention most “Internet famous”) skateboarders around. For years he has been ripping it up for Enjoi Skateboards.

But Jerry’s made the big decision to switch teams. In this little video, the Chocolate Skateboards team welcomes him aboard. The video in itself, while corny, is worth a watch.

Now, here is hoping to a new Jerry Hsu video part soon!

The 10 Most Epic Snowboarding Pics of ALL TIME

Few things get the diehard snowboarder more excited than: 1) opening day at their local mountain 2) word of fresh powder coinciding with a day off from work 3) a new piece of equipment to shred with.

While nothing equals actually hitting the slopes, looking at awesome snowboarding pictures is a great segue into fantasies of tearing up the park or the backcountry. It can make the wait for your next snowboarding trip that much easier.

Skullcandy Crusher Headphones Review

Bass makes the world go round, am I right? If you follow my line of thinking, then you’re going to love the Skullcandy Crusher Headphones.

Powerfully aggressive bass pumps forth from the headphones, yet despite just how loud, deep, and full the bass sounds, it does nothing to drown out vocals or precision highs.

In addition to quality, the Skullcandy Crusher Headphones also look cool. Their ergonomic design and sleek, streamlined construction make them a fashion accessory in and of themselves.

The Skullcandy Crusher Headphones are super comfortable too. This is largely thanks to super-soft leather ear pillows. In fact, once you put them on, you’re probably not going to ever want to take them off.

Love music? Love bass? Who doesn’t. Grab your own pair of Skullcandy Crusher Headphones today. You’ll never need another pair.

Snow Season Is Here

With a handful of ski resorts already open and dozens more preparing to open in the weeks to come, it’s evident that snow season is here. Snowboarding 2013/2014 here we come. Get pumped, ya’ll. What mountain are you most excited to hit this winter?

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Like all of Wes Anderson’s films, The Grand Budapest Hotel is set to be great. Set to be released in early March 2014, the comedy-drama film broods on an unlikely friendship between two hotel employees in 1920’s Europe. It’s a Wes Anderson film, guys! C’mon, that should be enough for you. And Adrien Brody is in it.

Take a look at The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer here.

Morrissey Autobiography

Though it is certainly must be a bit ridiculous, Morrissey (rock legend and lead singer of band The Smiths) has just released his new autobiography. I haven’t read it yet but it’s bound to be great. I love the dude. I think he is hilarious and knowledgeable in his own way. Anyone with a passing interest in the history of the music or The Smiths would do well to pick a copy up.

Check out the Morrissey Autobiography here.

2013 Quiet Life Fall Collection

The Quiet Life is one of the coolest skate lifestyle companies around. Their Fall 2013 collection is full of awesome hats, clothing and accessories. Check it out in their online store here. Heck, even if you’re not in the market for new duds, their lookbook is worth a peek. The Quiet Life definitely puts an emphasis on photography to promote each new release.
