Rome Snowboards – Beer & Rails Teaser

Liquid courage. Nerve tonic. Pork chop in a can. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same once it hits your lips: BEER. This adult beverage has been entwined with snowboarding since the dawn of time—cold ones kicked back in the parking-lot, a 12-pack at the spot, or late-night shotguns at a house party.

The Strange Brew boys are no strangers to slugging cold ones. They’ve built their reputation out of Tahoe by thrashing urban environments, traveling by van, and crushing cans all the while. Thousands of miles away across an ocean, Toni Kerkelä has spent his seasons meticulously picking apart street spots and filming hammers on his home turf of Finland. Toni’s built his reputation by putting out multiple video parts every year, full of his crisp style. When you park the Strange Brew van in the U.S. and mash them and Toni together in Finland, you get “Beer & Rails”.

When the wave of fermented grain finally crashed and washed Strange Brew up on the streets of Jyväskylä, Finland, they got a two-week guided session of Toni’s home-town spots. The crew was comprised of Riley Nickerson, Keenan Cawley, Ian Daly, Jasper Tripp, and Toni Kerkelä. With equal parts raw snowboard talent, beer-soaked ambition and an eye for unique lines, the newly-forged crew took it hard to the streets in search of late-night sessions and urban creativity.

Beer & Rails hits taps 8.31.15.

Robbie Roethler | Park Edit | 2014-2015

You may think this is just a highlight real, and it is, but this park edit also displays how Robbie Roether rides every day.  Robbie Roethler’s 2014-2015 Park Edit is nothing short of amazing.  Hammer after hammer, banger after banger, Robbie rips jumps and thrashes rails.  It’s difficult to fill a 2:41 edit with so many heavy tricks, yet somehow Robbie goes above and beyond what is extraordinary.  How many riders riders have a Cab 270°- Front Board to Back Board (Change Up) – Pretzel Out as an ender?  Just one, Robbie Roethler.

Chima Ferguson | Vans Propeller | Raw

Chima Ferguson is no joke.  With flawless style Chima does what he does best in Vans’ Propeller.  Even after a beating Chima owns every drop, stair-set, gap, and bank he skates. Maybe it the Australia waters that give him his super powers, or just maybe his pro-model Vans Chima Ferguson Pro Skate Shoes help him out.  What ever it is, it works.
