Ski Superstar Jossi Wells stopped by The House to chat with PaddyO about the saddest truth: his extreme and utter lack of a Shampoo Sponsor. Jossi is known for his high flying acrobatics and technical precision in Ski Halfpipe and Slopestyle. More notably, he is known for his coif and beard. His new wave Tony Hawk esque side part comb-over and chiseled grizzled soup strainer crumb catcher are inspiring and eye catching cabeza adornments. Yet they are on the brink of becoming a hindrance. The beauty of their look is undercut by their noxious nature. Quite frankly (and Jossi admits), his head smells like the inside of a kangaroo pouch. How can Jossi concentrate on ripping mountain crumbling slashes when the heat from his french onion soup, burnt Korean BBQ, and low tide smelling beard melts his goggles? He can not. How can he concentrate on throwing whirly birds in the stunt ditch when his hair looks like an Exxon Mobile disaster? He can not. This Kiwi needs a Shampoo Sponsor like Hall needs Oates, like Soul Glo needs the Jerry Curl, like spandex needs the deep single leg squat and forward lunge. Sponsoring this man’s dome piece and face fur is sponsoring his future, allowing him to be the man he is meant to be. Let us band together in an alliance for aroma, a fellowship of fuzz. We’re with you Jossi, you Weirdo Beardo…we’re with you!

That’s right, People Magazine awarded House Boardshop employee and overall man hunk Shane the Sexiest Man Alive. If it wasn’t for his baby blue eyes, chiseled jaw line, and flawlessly sculpted hair Shane would be just another average joe, but he’s not. If you think Adam Levine can get the ladies, he stands no chance against what Shane pulls in. Not only is Shane a total babe, but he loves back lipping boxes on his skateboard and snowboard!
In this episode of Roner Vision, Eric Roner needs to get rid of the snowmobile he was given by his friend, the late and great Shane McConkey. How does a professional skier, BASE jumper, and dare devil badass free space in his garage for a new SnoMo? Does he sell it, does he put it out to pasture, does he junk it? Nope. He drives it off an 800 ft cliff. It is actually a fitting and touching memorial BASE jump. Shane would be proud…but he would have done it naked.
Nike dropped there most high tech snowboard boot they’ve ever made early in the fall of 2013. It was called the Nike Lunarendor Snowboard Boot and featured more tech than anyone though possible, and then this happened; the Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots. The Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boots feature the same tech as the Nike Lunarendor Snowboard Boots – most notably Lunarlon Cushsioning, Interchangeable Flex Inserts, Free Sole, Heat Moldable Liners, and a Flywire Harness, but then they add some spice to the Quickstrike. The spice is LED lights, 30 of them embedded into the swoosh. Damn. Read More
