Rome Artifact & Artifact Rocker

The "Artifact" from Rome has been a team favorite since day one. The positive camber profile paired with a Glass Single Barrel HotRod lets you lean into heavy presses and pop over closeouts. Rebound Sidewalls and the Impact Base will hold up to plenty of abuse. STAY TERRIFIED.
The "Artifact Rocker" is the softer version of the artifact with FreePop Rocker camber which gives you even more pressing power through rails. HotRods make this board responsive enough to hit jumps and ollie over every stump, sign, or barrier in your path. Rome came up with some killer graphics for these park and urban machines! 

Frost River x Damage Mitts

Are you ready for opening day at Spirit Mountain this Saturday? Our rope tow mitts made next door at Frost River are perfect for gripping the rope or taking a hike up the shore and they make for a great gift.

S + B = 2

 Come to BEANER'S at 7:30 tonight for the WORLD PREMIERE of 
s + b = 2 
(the lamedog video). 
(who would pay for it anyway?) 


These UNION CONTACTS are designed for riders who see snowboarding a little different than most. The "less is more" mindset that went into these makes Scott Steven's Contact a perfect binding for park laps and urban features. A "zero forward lean" Asymmetric S2 highback and a mid-soft Duraflex MD base give this binding the feel that you're skating with really loose trucks. If you feel like getting creative and surfing around the whole hill this season than these are the binding for you.  

Chris Grenier did the art for Scotty's bindings this season. The drawing is of Scott, Chris and Austen Granger road tripping in Austen's Audi many years ago. The color scheme is a nod to Change That Tape. These bindings rule!

Opening Day

The waiting game is almost over... Spirit Mountain will open for the season on Saturday, November 18th. Hours and open terrain to be determined. See you in a week!

The CONTACT PRO is a staple in the UNION collection. These are some of the lightest bindings ever produced and are perfect for anyone looking to surf the mountain or shred the park.

A poppy, yet playful snowboard designed for any riding environment, "The Harrow" from I.P.P. is a favorite around here. This season's graphic was done by legendary artist Todd Bratrud as a part of the "Sin-Eater" collection. The graphics are a visual representation of all of the content we digest everyday. 
 The "Harrow" is available in 147cm, 152cm and 156cm.

Footprint Insoles

To prove that they make some of the most high performance insoles on the market, the guys at Footprint tested their impact protection against their competitors and the results speak for themself:

Footprint uses military grade nanotechnology foam in their insoles for maximum energy absorption that lasts which means your feet will be stoked!

Dropping Saturday...

The "Black Pigeon" Dunk Low from Nike SB is a revamped take on the original 2005 version. We'll be releasing them in store on Saturday, Nov. 11th at 10am.  


Feel like you're skating with the brand new ZEPHYR from THIRTY-TWO. Find every side hit and tree jib on the mountain or pick your line in the park with these skate and surf inspired boots. A lightweight Evolution Foam Outsole provides cushioning and comfort while the Team internal harness and Team fit liner provide stability and support for those deep carves and sketchy landings. The ZEPHYR is a great boot for ripping around the Zenith City.

The D.O.D. binding from ROME takes a freestyle-friendly flex and adds a sturdy chassis making this one of the best all mountain bindings in the game. The Antishock 2.0 highback minimizes chatter and gives you the responsiveness you need to spin off jumps and lock into deep carves. Oh, and they look way too good on the artifact rocker... 
Do or Die!

Daewon's latest colorway of the "adi-ease" from ADIDAS continues to pay homage to his Korean heritage. The tongue is made of a breathable mesh with "Daewon Song" embroidered in Korean Hangul and the soles of the shoes are two different colors. One is red and one is blue to represent the Korean flag. These low profile shoes are perfect for getting creative and having a ton of fun on your board.

Public is Here

The whole lineup of boards from This is Public has hit the shop just in time for the start of winter. Here's Ben holding the Bradshaw Opinion (left) and the Sexton Therapy (right). Winter came early this year so get your hands on one of these and go boarding!


UNION'S Cadet is not your average kid's binding. While other binding companies settle for plastic ratchets, Union uses injected aluminum for quick and easy entry making these functional and reliable. The Cadet is the only binding at this price that features an adjustable heelcup. With kid's feet growing so quickly these bindings will grow right with them and last for many seasons.

Vans x Howl Hi-Standard

Vans teamed up with Darrel Mathes and his company HOWL to create this colorway of the Hi-Standard, their best-selling boot of all time.

A great boot with classic style and modern performance!

This summer we filmed a skate video entirely on an iPhone. "(the lamedog video)" is a light-hearted video that showcases just how much fun skateboarding with your friends is. The goal for this project was to get as much footage of as many people as we possibly could while having a really awesome time. It isn't about how "good" the tricks are, it's about having a really good time. We are proud to announce that we will be premiering this video very soon! Come to BEANER'S on Saturday November 11th for a FREE showing of "(the lamedog video)". The premiere begins at 7:30p.m. Stay lame! 


The Strut from ROME is a great women's binding and is ideal for ladies who ride anywhere from 10 days a year to 100 or more.  Designed with a women's specific highback, a balanced flex to power ratio in the UnderWrap heel hoop and the perfect fit of the Comfort Grip 2.0 toe strap. The Strut really provides a fun ride anywhere on the hill.
