Burton x Dead New York Artist

by The Editors on January 22, 2007

Burton SoupBurton Snowboards has collaborated with The Andy Warhol Foundation to create a limited edition collection of snowboards, boots, and other cools stuff. Ever the sportsman, Andy probably would have loved having his art on a line of quality action sports consumer goods. Plus, we’re guessing working with dead artists is a whole lot easier than dealing with those who are still with us. All the details after the jump.

SIA Gets Urban in “the YARD”

by The Editors on January 11, 2007

Theyard-1We posted the Label Lab PR so we’ve really no business making fun of this special trade show zone, but we will anyway. SIA has created a two-story structure called the Yard. And it will be a place for all the new brands to band together and show off as one. It is described as follows:

the YARD is designed with an urban street atmosphere in mind that is determined to clearly define the diverse trends that will be displayed.

Yeah, kind of like real Hawaiian food served in an authentic, medieval dungeon atmosphere. The rest after the jump.

Emerica x Bishop Don “Magic” Juan

by The Editors on January 4, 2007

Em-Bishop-HeroIf you want to move product, why not hook up for a reportedly reformed Chicago street prostitute manager?

Being from the suburbs we’ll never understand the intricacies of “The Game,” “The Player’s Ball,” or his “vision from the Most High” however, Emerica’s new Don “Magic” Juan high top is, like the man hisself, loud and pimpin’. All the official details after the jump.

The Dew Action Sports Tour Letter

by The Editors on December 21, 2006

Wade MartinWe got the nicest (seriously) email today from Wade Martin, the General Manager of The Dew Action Sports Tour. It included a wrap up of all the wonderful things The Dew Action Sports Tour did last year. Of course, Wade included few hard numbers. The on-site attendance was up 17,000 (which is 7% over year one). Their website pageviews “increased by more than 50%.” Yet, Wade made no mention of the tour’s TV ratings. Wonder why? Read the entire letter after the jump.

Quik’s New Old Guy Website

by The Editors on December 18, 2006

Qse Web AnouncmentIf you like dressing like a surfer and you’re old or just prematurely grey, then Quiksilver would really like you to check out their new QuikSilverEdition website. You’ll be able to check out photos of handsome, familiar older surfers, at Malibu (with a hot blonde), or some more urban familiar faces out on the streets of Santa Monica with the same hot blonde (she gets around). But you won’t be able to purchase anything because Quik still doesn’t do e-commerce. If you can believe that?

SIA Gets Boot Tariffs Reduced

by The Editors on December 14, 2006

Trade shows, whatever. Newsletters, fine. What trade organizations like the SIA are really good for is saving money on bringing products in from third-world manufacturing centers. Seriously. Chinese snowboard boots are expensive enough without having to pay a four percent tarrif. Aren’t they?

Oh Yeah, We Have A New Site

by The Editors on December 10, 2006

Welcome to Sacklunch 3.0. Roll around. Check it out. And let us know what you think. You can simply click the comments link below this post and let us know immediately. Or, you can click the FORUM button up in the navigation and go soak in the completely redesigned Sacklunch Forum.

One thing about those new, orange navigation items up top. They are not new “sections” of the site. They are simply category links for the purists who don’t want to muck around in the stuff they don’t care about. If you only care about Skateboarding then click the SKATE button and you’ll get only the SKATE entries. You don’t have to use those, but if you want to bask in the warmth of the data you care about and nothing else, then do it.

We’re still getting the bugs out, so if you see anything, please let us know.

Ta, dah!!

DJ Underwear Search

by The Editors on December 8, 2006

EesadjThe crew at eesa lux-layering is looking for music that they can share with the world of snowboarders. It’s called the eesa lux listening dj division and was created by some dude named DJ Anubus. As much as we dislike the idea of Vermont hip-hop (and all the wack music that area of the country produces), what they’re trying to do is cool. If you DJ, send them a mix tape and the’ll get you out to their people. More after the jump.
