Here's a short edit for the Rome SDS' new film "The Shred Remains."


Here's some work from Bansky, a really great street artist. He's got a lot of talent and a lot to say. If you get a chance, pick up his book "Wall and Piece." I'll be posting his work periodically.

Trevor Rhoda

Just giving some love to Trevor Rhoda. I'm not really close to him but he's great friends with a lot of my great friends and I always hate seeing a fellow ripper down, and this kid really does rip. Here's to a full recovery.

STOKEN! AFTERPARTY!! Thanks to Sexy Boyz..

Our Stoken Weekend from Sexy Boyz on Vimeo.

STOKEN! 2010 at Nub's Nob

Here's an edit shown below from Jake Breed ( of the 2010 Rome SDS Stoken! event at Nub's Nob. The non-competitive competition started off with a small air contest to set the mood. Everyone was throwing down. There were no double-corks but plenty of double grabs with some tweaks and twocks. We picked 6 lucky people from that session and put them in the finals. 15 foot airs in the superpipe anyone? NOPE, MINI-PIPE! That's right, the finals were full of kids getting jib-tastic on Nub's Nob's 9ft mini-pipe. Handplants, backlips, and 3ft air tweakers were only a few of the gnarly tricks thrown down. 3rd place and a bag full of goodies went to David Rodebaugh, 2nd place and some 2011 390 Boss' was Nub's Nob's local Charlie Hoffman, and first place winning a 2011 jacket and pant went to none other than Kyle Kearns. The other three people that didn't place we put in a sudden death round on the mini-pipe. Slash contest! Drew Nelson won and received a 2009 outerwear kit. After all of the shenanigans, we had a product toss followed by an epic park session. All the kids were stoked that they got to ride in a contest that was based on fun thanks to the Rome SDS. Thanks to Nub's Nob for holding the Stoken! Nub's Nob will be the only resort in Michigan open until April 11th, so come check it out! PLENTY OF SNOW!!!!!!!

Marie’s award this year marked her sixth Transworld Rider’s poll award…..Awesome! In attendance at the awards was a big crew from Rome which included company owners, reps, Rome in-house, friends, and even Bjorn who presented an award. A great time was had by all.

Congratulations to Marie and Eiki from everyone at the Rome SDS, and thanks to everyone who voted for them.

If you build it, we will come...

If you build it, we will come.

College is a really good time for a lot of reasons, one being the mass amount of free time you have on your hands. If you’re anything like us, some of your best memories are nights that include snowboards, building jibs around campus, and a little after-session partying.

With this in mind the Rome SDS has announced the first Ima Betta Jibba: College Backyard Jib Contest.

Most college snowboard crews already have some sort of set-up to mess around on, whether it is a couple rails or boxes in someone’s backyard, a snake-run through campus or even just some barrels or stumps to do some bonking on. Some crews have even put stuff together that would rival their local park.

Well, here’s your chance to get the recognition you deserve for all your hard work at school. Either get off the couch and build that set-up you talked about doing all fall, or just go out and spruce up the set-up you’ve already built. Shoot a short video, snap some photos and send them in to by February 1st, 2010.

What you can win: we’ll be choosing the top College Jib-Park and sending a few Rome Team members over to shred and put together a video edit with the winners. For good measure we’ll also be hooking the crew up with a couple new Rome boards.

Entries must be in by February 1st 2010.

For more news and Rome SDS happenings keep an eye on, and
