In the Online Video Project Of The Year category, The Manboys took the win. This is one of the most competitive categories with projects like Burton Presents and Rome’s Find Snowboarding on the original voting list for riders. While a range of projects made the final three nominee list, including the adidas Nomad series and Jon Stark’s Chikenmeat, the riders ultimately settled on The Manboys.
A huge congrats to Rusty Ockenden and the crew for representing Canadian snowboarding so well.
Music is a direct reflection of our individual style and personality. Endeavor has always used music as a muse and a source of inspiration. This limited edition collection of snowboards celebrates one of our generations most iconic hip hop groups - The Wu-Tang Clan.
The Wu-Tang Clan is a groundbreaking hip hop collective from Staten Island, New York, consisting of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Led and produced by RZA, the group assembled in the early 90s and adopted their name after the film Shaolin and Wu Tang.
The Wu-Tang Clan gained a sizeable underground following after the 1993 release of the independent single “Protect Ya Neck“ and their tour with Cypress Hill and Alcoholics. Their critically acclaimed, debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), was released in November, 1993, on the Loud/ RCA label and stands as one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. Their second release, Wu- Tang Forever, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and sold over four million copies in the US alone.
The group has launched the careers of numerous affiliated acts, collectively known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential groups of the last two decades. The Wu-Tang Clan helped pioneer modern-day rapping, production techniques, subject matter and image. Among these contributions have been RZA’s sampling style, members’ mafioso rap personas, usage of slang terms and artists’ tendency to run in tightly knit groups.
The Archetype Snowboard Lab by Endeavor Snowboards is our commitment to innovation. A truly unique R&D facility located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Archetype’s mandate is to inspire new ideas and give us the capabilities to make, test, and validate new innovation in snowboard technologies.

THE SMOOTHEST RIDE EVER
Urethane absorbs vibration, just like skateboard wheels. This seamlessly integrated sidewall
is fused directly to the woodcore, creating the strongest and smoothest riding boards Endeavor has ever produced.
It’s not a question of choosing performance over price or design over function. We want boards that have everything – unquestionable quality, dope aesthetics and ride amazing on all terrain.
Next we add in the individual flavour – the [X]. For us, it’s bombing pow runs in the morning, hit laps mid day, some park hits in the afternoon and a speed run to the bar for chicken wings and caesars.
We ALWAYS ENDEAVOR to raise the standard of what snowboarding should be so that you can have that perfect e[X]perience.
