It seems that Nike is set to release its Fall/Winter 2008 line of snowboard boots. They promoted their new line via some toy boots (as in the photos in this post). I wonder who Nike will get to join their team. For sure not Shaun White as he just inked a 10-year endorsement deal with Burton early this year. That, and it’s just going to be weird seeing him go with Nike as Burton has been there since he was a little kid.
I have to give it to Nike though, they’ll probably attract some share of the market as they are a well known brand. I just don’t know if they will attract those season-riders (such as myself) as I have been a brand-whore with ThirtyTwo in terms of snowboard boots. They are just damn comfortable and does what it needs to do to have me ride all day/night long.
Anyways, time will tell if Nike’s snowboarding line will be a hit or miss1.
It’s been about 5 years to this day since a dear friend passed away. I guess that is why I like to go snowboarding… to remember the good times with him on the mountain, and to just remind myself that Life is short.
well… today, or tonight, is the start of my “track-and-field” workout. just came back from 24, that was dope… 11pm and not a lot of people—sweet. i did a lot of pondering on my way to the place, as well on my way back from it. one major thought that i did remember was… working out isn’t hard at all. its making yourself want to go, get dressed for it, and drive to the place that is. after doing the workout itself, its driving back to your place, taking a shower, and calming down your nerves to go to sleep. meanwhile, the morning after, the hardest thing is not to be sore, or at least not to walk like it. i’m glad i got psyched even though it was pouring big-fat rain drops outside; flash-flood warning and all in the OC. tomorrow, shit—i’ll be walking like a duck.
in other news, the mammoth trip left me with a sweet taste in my mouth; and making me want to get some more of it. a few suggestions have been made by people that there might be another trip or so …soon. i myself would like to go again fo’shizzle. that’ll be dope if i can go on the 29th of february… geez, that day doesn’t come often; and how many times can you say that you boarded on feb. 29th …you know?!?! if you would like to roll, or going to be up there sometime soon, drop a line.
from my mind to yours, …eat, drink and be merry! …i mean live healthy! (too)
