ALOHA NORTHSHORE KAUAI

 


Posted on July 24, 2014

In the minds of the 686 faction family, winter is always happening somewhere. According to Brent, who heads up our global marketing efforts, “686 is active at every summer camp wearing our special edition mountain mitts, rolling up our sleeves and getting nasty with it. Team General, Pat McCarthy linked up Woodward Tahoe week 1 takeover, Our Rockies rep, Dave Graves linked up and shredded the shit out of Woodward Boreal week 2 take over with nearly every camper getting a Riders Union jacket. We have our main man Brad “Garbage Bear” Broughton on hill every day at Camp of Champions as well as coach Colin D Watt and a slew of other coaches and local pros now wearing the gear, Mike Gray coaching at Windells , Melissa Evans working and riding at Windells, Dannika Duffy working and riding at High Cascade and Max Lyons ripping the shit out of High Cascade all summer.”

 

Yes, he’s stoked and we’ve been busy in preparation for the upcoming seasons

Vintage black and white photography is priceless. It tells a story in the simplest manner and captures the moment only in that time period. On the other hand, when you colorize these b/w images almost 9 times out of 10, it doesn’t seem to work. I ran into a few images that “almost” make it happen, but not really. You decide for yourself starting with the King and the Mr. Watergate in 1970

The Matix squad just finished the semi-annual Agenda show in Long Beach. Low and behold, we were just awarded the best large booth design at the show! I guess all the years of vintage collecting have finally paid off?! No really, I couldn’t be more proud of the boys for making this happen. Big ups to Gus, Gabe, Chad, Al Pargas, Todd, Daran, Nick, Jaime and of course BD for a job well done. Check it out
