Tasty Skateboards is back!

Eastern Boarder Lifer, and my good friend Jared Nylen recently received his very own signature skateboard from from worcester local company Tasty Skateboards. If you have been involved in the worcester skateboarding scene in the past 5 years you must be at least somewhat familiar with Tasty or seen Nylen throwing himself off a building somewhere in downtown worcester so get yourself down to the worcester shop or the FYC down on 420 Pleasant st. and support your local skateboard company, congrats jared all the bloody palms and heel bruises finally paid off.

It's ganna dump guy!

This short, but hopefully sweet storm should puke out about 12-18'' of fluffy white powda. Lower Vermont and New Hampshire will be getting a decent amount but looks like the place to be is here in Worcester. So get your generator filled up with gas, break out the drop in, and the old camcorder and hit the streets of Woo hard. See you out there. -AUGER

Holden Skatepark Meeting

Holden Skatepark, 1997.

If you, your child, you grandmother, you ex-boyfriend, or anyone for that matter who has ever looked at a skateboard and lives within an hour of Holden, Massachusetts should be at the Senior Center in Holden on Tuesday, Januray 11th at 5:30pm.

Are you sick of going to a skatepark that was just built and hating how it turned out? By going to this meeting you can put in your own input, shaping how the Holden skatepark will turn out. The town was nice enough to fly our designers, all they need now is your ideas. With the holidays over, you have no excuse not to be there. Please go, voice your opinions, and help support the people who have been fighting hard for this for a long time. You know you are going to skate there when its done, why not have some say in what there is to skate. See you there -AUGER

This week’s episode of The Runs comes to us all the way from California. EB homeys Kevin and Sean Bicknell are now living out in Mammoth (where it actually snows) and they have been killing it, so watch the edit they, along with Adam Metterville, made for us. Includes riding from Kevin, Sean, Adam, Andrew Santoro, Andrew McKenzie, and Cody Kuehne.

YoBeat Merchandise is available through Eastern Boarder, head on down to either the Nashua or Worcester location, or pick up the phone (888-360-FLIP) and we can ship anything anywhere. Thank you for supporting your local snowboard shop. — Tommy J

Check back next week for Moore footage, and a new Episode of The Runs, a weekly collaboration between YoBeat and Eastern Boarder.

Living The Single(s) Life

Now that the longer Holiday Hours at the shop are winding down and the crazyness of Christmas Season 2010 (and the 50+ hour work weeks that came along with it) is just a memory, I finally got a chance to get out on the hill at Wachusett last night to take a few runs. You know, try out the new whip, knock the rust off of the old bones & get my snow legs back under me (FLASHBACK: Did I just pull something in my back trying on my new boots at home while getting ready? Uh oh, not a good sign!) After a few pre-emptive aspirins & a quick shot of Dr. Jack's medicine I was ready to go. Since I only planned on being out for a quick hour or 2 of riding I kept it a solo mission. As a result, the Singles Line was the way I rolled all night. Ah yes, the Singles Line... that game of chance that as randomly as the lottery, throws you into an 8 minute rendezvous together with 2 or 3 complete strangers. Always interesting to say the least!

Most of the time a little small talk is the rule here: "How's the snow today?" "How long have you guys been out for today?" "Seems like it's getting a little colder..." If you end up getting on w/ some other snowboarders the topics can drift into board tech or how the park might be looking that day. Whatever it takes to pass the time to the top. Occasionally I'll get recognized from the shop, maybe by someone that I had sold some stuff to: "You look like someone from down at EB." That's always cool, you get a chance to ask about their new gear & how it's working out for them. Last night, I ran into 2 guys that had sold some boots and bindings. Both had nothing but good reviews to give about them!! It's also always pretty cool to see all of the EB stickers that are adorning the boards and helmets of so many peeps... let's us know that we are doing it right!

Later I got put on w/ 3 completely drunk Russian guys on some sweet ski equipment straight out of 1989, wearing some vintage "How's your day glowin?" neon outerwear. The whole ride up they keep conversing boisterously in Russian, laughing loudly and occasionally looking over at me curiously. I have no idea what they are talking about. What's that they keep saying? "Tórmoz"? Is that the Russian name for snowboarder? Are they talking about me? Of course not (then when getting off of the lift at the top I think that the guy closest to me gave me a little shove as he let out a drunken giggle...)

Once in a while you will "crap out" and end up on Death Chair. Staring straight ahead like zombies, only the dead silence of a tomb will accompany you on your long, cold ride to the top when you get stuck w/ this group. No sense trying to make small talk here (as I just pull my hood over my head & join in the fun, hunching myself anti-socially over the front bar)

So roll the dice once in a while & try your luck at the game of chance known as the Singles Line... You never know who you might end up meeting on there! -TEO
