It's not even December....

And it already feels like February. It's pretty hard to believe how good it has been on the West coast this month. From Whistler to Tahoe, the stoke is high, for bounties of powder- it's no longer dry!

The Great Fall Transition

The Great Fall Transition is upon us and everyone is rejoicing. Here in Tahoe- just last week- Mother Nature snuck in to deposit a healthy layer of fluff to the high peaks. Two days prior, the back of my truck was home to a surfboard and a wetsuit as the windswell on the majestic Lake Tahoe offered plenty of rides to those willing to brave the brain freeze. Those same winds also brought my first turns of the season as I joined some close friends to poke around 9500 feet. I'm claiming best first day of any season prior; glorious pow turns and zero core shots. Bring it on winter, let's see what you got!

"The Cadet is the board that you can take anywhere, and in return will bring you everywhere. No nonsense and straight to the point, this board will bring out the adventurer in you and leave you grinning ear to ear, run after run." -Snowboard Magazine
“It’s simple design and old school flavor combined with quality materials make the Cadet your perfect all around rip tool. It is super responsive and quick edge to edge. This board is great in any condition, it floats in powder, holds a solid edge in hard pack and the fast sintered base blasts through slushy chunder.” -Hannah Eddy

Developing progressive, high performance snowboard designs is our forte, but it doesn't stop there. We're snowboarders with a passion for seeking peaks, drawing lines down an open face, digging slalom runs through the woods and waiting for first chair after the big storm.

With good design and clean aesthetics as our backbone- we promise when you're out on the mountain and look down at the shape under your feet, you will be uniquely inspired and ready to shine in any condition ahead.

Thank you and enjoy the ride,

Gray, Pete and Steven
