2014 and the state of Forsnowboarding



Working on 2013/2014
We decided to take the better part of 2012 off to reassess the current site and what it had to offer. Our focus has always been about design, both in and outside of the snowboard industry, and that’s why we’ve decided to rework the current website in order to better serve our audience and have a better focus on design. To our loyal readers, thanks for the continued support, the new site is in the works, and will be up for the 2014 season.

One that stood out in particular was by artist Complete Technique (aka Osamu Koyama), who created a gold-plated Zoom Force-1 boot. Filmmaker Ronin follows the entire creation process which was shot over the course of nine days. (Via Hypebeast.com)
