A quick look at some 2014 product from our sponsors Burton, Smith, Dakine, and Rossignol

by Burritos and Snow February 13 2013 0 Comments

The SIA winter convention took place in Denver the first weekend in February and I was there to check out a few of the goods.  Over all, I spotted three trends in products slated for release this fall…

 

  • Photographic top sheets … most companies had at least one or two boards with photographic top sheets. Some time collages, sometimes single pictures, and both in color or black and white. 

 

  • 80’s inspired design … lots of 80’s style graphic design ranging from images to color ways and design shapes.  I saw snowboards with N.W.A graphics, Salt and Peppa graphics, Pac Man, and the list continues.  Lots of angular design and crazy bright colored shapes as well that were very reminiscent of the 80’s

 

  • Island theme … This theme was not as prevalent as the other two but it did creep up across multiple companies and products. Palm Trees, beach scenes, that sort of thing.

 

Anyway that’s my take on trends. Included are pictures from a few of our sponsors in which you can see these trends pop up from time to time.

About the Author

Burritos and Snow

Daniel Cochrane grew up on the East Coast and South East where he surfed and skateboarded. Upon moving to Salt Lake City in 1996 picking up snowboarding was a no brainer. He has spent much of the sixteen years since exploring all that the Wasatch has to offer from groomers and backcountry to powder days and park laps. His background in skateboarding definitely shows itself in his riding not only in the park but in his free riding as well. The DIY (Do It Yourself) aspect of the snow/skate culture prompted him to begin writing about his adventures three seasons ago on his own blog. The success of that blog led to writing with other snow outlets around Utah and ultimately to writing for Ride Utah. Basically Daniel loves snowboarding and Utah and he just wont shut up about it….
