No More Tomato Talk

So apparently Shaun White is over the whole "Flying Tomato" thing, and wants a new nickname. I was under the impression that a nickname was just whatever you ended up with, something that someone called you that just stuck. Not your own personal choice... but whatevs.

Anyway check it out. You can even leave a comment on there with a new nickname choice of your own (I can't wait to see what people suggest -TEO)

All-Time Steeze...

If you happen to have a few hundred bucks just sitting there, burning a hole in your Paypal account, here's your chance to score a classic... In my opinion one of the top stand out board graphics of all time from one of the best skate/snowboarders. Noah Salaznek's 93/94 Sims pro model snowboard. There have been a few other skate style snowboard graphics over the years, but this one no doubt tops them all in sickness.

Don't sleep on it, though 'cause this one ends soon... -TEO

Mike Ravelson Rookie Card

Mike Ravelson has been on point lately, whether he be shredding your local mountain harder than you, or throwing down tricks on a rail at your school that you didnt even think was do-able. The kid has been the topic of the majority of recent snow related blog posts, and recently got a two page rookie card photo and write up in eastcoast snowboarding. Much deserved coverage for a dude who loves snowboarding and works his ass off. Come on down to Eastern Boarder Worcester and pick up a copy for the incredible value of Fo' FREE. Hats off Mike, keep up the good work.-NIX

Why don't you sell bikes on the website?

Why don't you sell bikes on the website?

We get this question all the time. So let me address it directly, we don't sell bikes online because bikes need to be built correctly and need service to work properly, its something you just can't get from a website. If you order your bike online and build it yourself you void the warranty and most likely will have mechanical problems down the line. When you purchase a bike from Eastern Boarder you get the full factory warranty, a professionally built ready to ride bike adjusted to your liking, and a 30 day tune-up to help maintain and keep the bike running smooth. All this is included in the the purchase at no extra cost. Plus when you come down to the shop you can get sized up on it, ride it, and talk to a real live person about the differences between models. When something does go wrong with the bike our shops are full service centers able to fix a simple flat or build you a custom wheel set and everything else in between. So when your ready buy your next bike, take a minute to think about what's the better deal. Let me ask you this, has DANS COMP ever fixed your flat tire? bent rim? or anything for that matter? -SPK

Product Review: EB Nashua on the Arbor Draft

Headed out to midnight madness with a couple of the homies last weekend and got a chance to get on a 153 Arbor Draft. Earl, Scott, and I made a video review of the board, and we kinda gave an overview of the board here and a couple of riding clips too.

It was cold, it was late, and it was pretty icy (as you'd expect in lovely NH), but the Draft rode very well throughout the course of the night. The Draft utilizes "The System", a way to integrate different technologies to work in unison to create a true-twin reverse camber board designed for the freestyle minded rider. Arbor uses brass edges on the Draft for a better sliding experience. Bronze is softer than steel, so it allows for a more catch-free rail riding experience. The board boasts Arbor's Grip-Tech sidecut, which offers extra contact points beneath your feet, allowing you better board control, and constant edge-hold on hard-pack conditions. -Tommy J

The Arbor Draft is in stock at Eastern Boarder Worcester.
