We've MOVED!

Hey guys and girls,

Thanks for being continued readers over the years, even when the job of making snowboards took my attentions elsewhere, I'm glad to have been of service. It's so cool to see all the people from around the world who love action sports as much as I do. Sick!

This blog (and all its contents) has moved to my NEW official home:

My wife, L.J. Acker's, blog ( has become quite the hit and we've agreed that she's going to help me write and edit all the cool things I'm up to in action sports - some behind the scenes at trade shows, events, and at work at Salomon Snowboards- and all the recent news in the action sports industry. It's easy to see that she's the brains behind the operation and I'm the beauty.

Take a look and cruise around. We'll be fooling around with the layout until we find the right fit. Say hello on Twitter and on the blog. I can't wait to hear from you.

Thanks, guys!

Kelly Slater Number 10

Holly Shit,Kelly Slater has just won his tenth title

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


I woke up this morning and heard the sadest news that Andy Irons just passed away (he was battling against Dengue fever).

To lose a Brother, a son, and a husband (soon to be father) must heartbreaking far beyond what I can imagine.

My deepest thoughts are going to his family. So while it may not bring any comfort to this huge loss, His soul, his inspiration is alived through most surfers you are seeing in the oceans all around the globe because like me, thousands of other kids have watched him surf and try to copy his style.

for more info, here is the press release from Billabong.

Harrison Gordon

About two weeks ago, I went to Hintertux and met Harrison Gordon, super chill dude and I have to say he is pretty fucking talented .

Here is a part I found on Whitelines site...too bad it's only jibbing footage because Harrison shreds in backcountry as well.

Bonfire and Salomon

It’s breast cancer awareness month so we have to make sure to spread the words to our friends. For the guys it is always a good way to start a conversation with a chick in your local pub. Anyway Salomon and Bonfire are contributing in cool ways to spread the love and the awareness!

Final Heat Kelly Vs Fanning

Hossegor is one of my favorite place to surf : super thick lips so that you have to be ultra committed.

Trestle Circus

Almost everytime I went to Trestles, there would be a full crew of pros/photographers in the water. Well that time of year, it is simply crazy and the whole WCT is back to So.Cal

When tattoos go wrong

Il ike tattoo, it is about personal expression sometimes it has big meaning and sometimes it is womething you got while being drunk in Vegas (but usually you in that case you also got married to a hooker who has three kids so that the tattoo will be the least of your problem).

So anyway here is a picture I saw from this site which show that some people go a bit weird on their love for snowboarding:

Sheep Surfing

Bad Slam

Andy Irons short films

At the end, Andy is talking about his first waves...funny because my friends and I we all remember our first wave and and I was a surf instructor that was my goal to get my students hooked on their first's a sensation hard to describe so you will have to try surfing next time you see some waves.
