If the return to work is killing you before you've even made it to lunchtime, then here's something to raise your spirits.

686's Compton Snow Club gets younglings from some of LA's most disadvantaged communities onto the slopes of Bear Mountain. And not only that, coaching comes from the likes of Forest Bailey, Riley Nickerson and the rest of the 686 pro team.

It puts us in mind of the top work being done by the guys at Snow-Camp in this country, and it's always great to see snowboarding making a difference, however small. You can directly support the Compton Snow Club by picking up some limited edition 686 clobber here.
