Tribes of Snowboarding


Will Smith getting all street in the domes

Less of place, more of an international community for those not lucky enough to live near real snow/mountains, UK and Dutch snowdomes have produced an interesting breed of rider. Balaclava-ed or dreaded up to the max, they exist solely to bring mischief and chaos to the parks, whether they be of the ski resort or city centre variety.

Again, they may look scary, but anyone who gaps kinked rails directly to the flat part obviously can’t have knees any older than an eighteen year old’s; the IRA-style face mask is simply an easy way to cover up pimples.

How to take balaclava fashion too far. Thanks Illicit.

Look to the pros:
Will Smith, Simon Houlind, Denis Leontyev

Do say:
Bitch I’m thuggin’.

Don’t say:
The LA river fucked your liver? I though you were from Hemel Hempsted?

Get the look:
Think back to Belfast circa 1992 for inspiration, the more of your face you have covered the better, it does get down to minus 5 in those snowdomes after all! Pair that with a tight black pants and either a black or grey hoodie and you’re good to go!
