SIA 2011: Day 3
30 Jan, 2011
Day 3 of SIA is definitely the most tiring day; the partying starts to catch up with the overall tiredness of being on your feet all day at a tradeshow but it’s still sooo worth it. Day 3 for me was the big guns of snowboarding, the brands that have a lot of products to go through but also have things on lockdown.
Burton Restricted snowboards…look out girls Nuggette for you!
Rome Snowboards Addictive Collection
Also at the Rome booth was Sully on video for The House crew.
Lib Tech Snowboards: Attack Banana, MC La Nina with C1, Dark Series
DC snowboards getting fun with the DC
Unity Snowboards splitboard
686 Fallen Collection
A stop into the Sessions booth
Quiksilver’s Travis Rice collection lets you blend in easy on the mountain
Jones Snowboards has been constantly packed and has a lot of momentum into its second year with four models for riders.
Frends came out with their own headphones that are taking off. Here’s a look at some of the ear buds they are offering
A stop into the Vans booth to meet the crew and check out the latest. I’ve been rocking the 2012 Vans Veil’s for the past month as a wear tester giving feedback and really happy with how the line is looking for next year.
Ride Snowboards definitely creates the best booths and this year’s peep show was hilarious to check out. Of course walking by this sight, I had to take a photo of the hilariousness of it.
A look at the 2012 Ride Slackcountry, helmet, strapper keeper boot, ill eagle contraband and optimo contraband
At the end of the day, walked out of the tradeshow to see the 686 Reclaim contest. Definitely interesting to see what they were doing and how it all came along.
For the first time since arriving, spent an hour relaxing at my hotel room before heading to dinner with Jessica, Autumn, Eric and Micaela (?) at the Capitol Grill which was amazingly good food and drinks. A good nights sleep to get ready for the always fun on-snow coming up soon. Now it’s time to check out of my sweet hotel room and head into Day 4 of the show!
