To kick off the summer, Slaysh has partnered up with the guys at Half Cab Productions to throw a party at Babylon Night Club on Friday June 1st. The party will be the first official Canadian release of LIPSMACK; a wakeboard film by Slingshot Wakeboards. The doors open at 10:00pm with the movie premiering around 11:00pm and will be followed by an after-party from FRENZY.
We just got an update from team rider Taylor Antila from the land down under. He is enjoying his Aussie experience and skating hard. On this freezing cold Ottawa spring day we are kind of jealous of the palm trees in the background.
Yesterday Sarah and I braved some wicked winter weather to get to the K2 show room in Montreal to check out all the goods for the 2012-2013 season. Despite the blizzard and the slippery roads, we got there and were super stoked on what we saw. I can’t spill all the details but I can certainly say that K2 keeps pushing the envelope with the technology that goes into that plank beneath your feet. Expect to see more progression on their rocker base shapes and some new additions to their already outstanding line-up of snowboards. For the ladies, K2 has completely revamped their board shapes and core technology to be even more female rider friendly.
As for their boot and binding line-up, K2 threw some D’s on them. Riders can expect getting in and out of both boots and bindings to be even easier with some smart new upgrades. Expect to see a kick-ass eyewear line from K2 that we will have in Slaysh next winter, too. All in all, Sarah and I were both extremely impressed and stoked on the new gear for next winter. K2 just keeps out doing themselves.
I (Andy Marr) recently had an article written about me in the Carleton student news paper, The Charlatan. The article highlighted what it’s like riding for Slaysh and being a Student. Check out the article by Jessica HuynhHERE.
