Shit Ski Hats - A Tribute

MONUMENTALLY AWFUL HEADWEAR

We love Tim Eddy, if you haven’t heard of him before you should have. He is one of the simplest, humblest and funniest snowboarders out there right now. From his Pow ‘n’ Chow snowboard cookery web series to his hand built forest eco-house, he is the epitome of the good time, fun lovin’ snowboarder that handily comes with great environmental credentials. We couldn’t be more stoked that last month he finally became pro for K2.

Plus he wears awesome hats, all the time. In much the same way that way back in the past (ten years ago) the now ubiquitous Thug Rug was known as the humble ‘punter warmer,’ Tim Eddy is bringing back the ‘shit comedy ski hat’ to the height of fashion again, and doing so single handedly at that.

So, seeing as next year these pieces of headwear will be a common site in the next round of hyper-cool jib vids and park edits (you laugh, but who could have predicted the fisherman hat craze?), here’s a handy guide – neigh a tribute – to the crap cherry on top of every ski dad’s head: the Shit Hat.

Still doubting? Look how much better this laid out backy looks with the addition of a trailing ‘Wee Willy Winky’ cap. Remember – snowboarding is not serious.
