Nixon's head office - the building was originally an old lumber yard.

Easy Rider x Nixon Contest

The store ran a contest in conjunction with Nixon Watches last fall.

One lucky customer and one of our staff won a trip to Nixon’s head office in Encinitas, California to build their own custom watch.
We also tied the trip in with the Supercross event in San Diego.

It was a great trip of a lifetime.

Thanks to Nixon for making it all happen.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story.

Easy Rider x Lib Tech Co-Lab boards!

We have once again teamed up with Lib Tech to create some Ultra Limited production snowboards.
The graphics are again done by legendary skate artist Jimbo Phillips. It is our “take” on the classic Lib Tech Skeleton graphic, mixed with our Yeti that Jimbo has done for us on several other pieces.

Similar to last season we chose the Lib Tech TRS Model for our boards.
TRS stands for Total Ripper Series – and these boards will make you a Ripper for sure!
This year we also had some made in the Horse Power construction.

The Regular construction comes in 148N / 151N / 154 / 157 / 159 / 159W / 162 and 165
The HP versions come in 154 / 157 and 159

Big THANK YOU to Jimbo for the art work and of course to Lib Tech for being a company cool enough to do this!

Stop by and check them out – they won’t last long.
