Anyone heard a cause of death for Jake Phelps? I've looked a few times but don't have the whutsapp rumor feature on my phone.

SoCalitis

I've heard hints of pancreatic cancer and alternatively some nebulous digestion issue, but those are very different and unsubstantiated so I believe those are just rumors and loose talk speculation.

So it looks like Muller has got his girlfriend pregnant already.

Looks like the April fools joke worked better than they expected haha.

 

Nico continues to remind me of a 70's era PBS kids show host. 

His GNU book spread surrounded by fruits and veggies was the first.

And now this where he looks like Slim Goodbody x Mr. Conductor in Shining Time Station x Bob Ross (or something).

He rides for them AFAI understand. No idea if he bought part of it or something but i think this company existed before he got involved.

I don't understand what your argument is here? You think it's not odd for a pro to be paid by a company to ride their products, but instead ride another company's products and have this be visible in videos and photos? Is this not a breach of contract? Imagine if an Adidas rider was seen wearing old Nike boots?

It was pretty widely known that Kazu was riding old Burton boots with three stripes painted on them for a while after he signed with Adidas.

This stuff happens semi-regularly. My ex-gf had a conversation with several of the Full Moon ladies during their Seattle premier about how, when the cameras weren't rolling, they all fought over riding Annie Boulanger's Pillow Talk. They talked her into buying one.

how widely exactly? I didn't know.

Well, we talked about it in that era's version EasyLoungin. There were a bunch of Instagram posts by several of the signed adidas riders at the time who didn't yet have adidas boots to ride so they just painted adidas stripes on what they did have. It was covered online by various snowboard sites. A quick Google search result had the first hit as a link to a post by Avren at Angrysnowboarder:

Welcome To The Snowboard Industry adidas

If you didn't hear about it at the time, I'm not sure why. Maybe your oft-stated disgust with (and disinterest in) snowboard gear made by the likes of nike and adidas?

When Adidas first started up there was definitely a photo of Kazu sat in the back of a car putting on some DriverX that had some thick white lines painted on.

Back on the Lando topic, he just posted a couple shots that my boss took from their Idaho trip... there is no mention of Lib, but he does thank Burton and Downing. I wonder if something is now actually happening with that...

Love the first shot. So rad when you can feel the action, like the mountain is angry.

He will catch an edge and die

Noticed lately that Terje isn't wearing Oakley goggles any more. Feels weird in a way. Some people are associated with certain brands.
