If you're a snowboarder and you haven't heard the name Travis Rice before then you must be living under a rock. LibTech and Quicksliver Pro Travis Rice has been pushing the limits of freestyle riding for years now, and released his newest full feature movie this year, The Art Of Flight. AOF might just be one of the best snowboard movies ever made and showcases every type of riding from big mountain to park and pipe. With US made brand Lib Technologies backing Travis, he gets all the technology he needs in his snowboards to go further and push the limits even more. This Travis Rice limited board comes with all the same amazing technology as his regular Pro Model board, but with a limited graphic and a full color book on the making of AOF, as well as the AOF blu-ray and dvd combo movie pack. Also check out the Travis Rice Banana Hammock. Lib Tech's experimental true twin pow board with bio beans top sheet and ovalized drag free flotation shape. This thing is CRAZY!

Many people may not know one of the biggest names in the freeride snowboard community grew up right here in New England! Jeremy Jones started riding at 9 years old and at just 16 turned pro for Rossignol Snowboards, at which time he primarily focused on racing. After racing for several years, he later turned to big mountain riding, a decision which would turn him into one of the most progressive and notable names in snowboarding. Today still pushing the sport, he has parted ways with Rossignol to create his own snow company, Jones Snowboards. Jones Snowboards, which are handmade in Switzerland, use premium materials and patented technology thats keeps big mountain riding progressing.
|One of the most popular boards in the line, with mellow magne-traction, cam-rocker, and a medium flex The Mountain Twin has won numerous awards for its twin but versatile shape and all mountain feel. In stock 159 and 164w.|
|The Flagship is the big mountain killer, and Jeremy Jones' board for any backcountry riding. Stiffer flex along with mellow magne-traction and cam-rock insures a stable and fast ride. In stock 158, 161, 163w.|
|The Hovercraft is Jones' powder board with an old school fish look. Directional rocker insures its float in deep snow, and the mellow magne-traction gives optimum edge hold on groomers. In stock 156 cm.|

Yes folks it's still snowing and the title is correct! We have gotten our hands on a 2013 Lib Tech Skunk Ape Horse Power 165! We all know big feet could cause big problems for any serious snowboarder who wants to ride aggressive. No other wide board will give you the amount of edge hold and turning power like the Skunk Ape will, and new for next season the board will have Horse Power making it lighter, even more powerful, and more responsive edge to edge. Not only is this thing rad but it's our only one, and to top it off we have it sale priced at $569.99 (reg. $700)!!
