THE MODS AND ROCKERS OF SHRED

So what if the snow ruins your chances of skating over the winter? You can always dig out that old hunk o’ junk with bindings you still keep in the garage for such occasions. And if your summer skate spots don’t quite work out with a snowboard you can always make your way over to a nearby ‘resort.’ Make sure you never tell anyone you actually had to pay for a lift ticket though, instead drop strong hints that it was through a ‘hook up’ you have in the office.

This tribe is perfect for those with a love of instagram and a hatred of big jumps, and if you can’t even be bothered to tailpress (sorry I mean 5-0) that donkey dick in the park you can just ride underneath it and tell everyone it’s part of the new-skool-nu-wave progression movement.

Look to the pros:
Brandon Hammid, Forest Bailey, Desiree Melancon

Do say:
Have you heard of this new band? Oh yeah, probably not…

Don’t say:
Do you mean Mumford & Sons?

Get the look:
Facial hair; either an ironic Kip-from-Napolean-Dynamite mustache or a full on unkepmt grizzle. Throw on a ripped barbour jacket over a skateboard branded tee and some impractically skinny jeans and you’re good to go.
