Ozzy and Randy, 1982 Photographed in Chicago by Paul Natkin

Continuing our music inspired collaboration boards we present Ozzy Osbourne. Ozzy is an English vocalist and songwriter. He rose to prominance in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the rock band Black Sabbath, whose sound was influential to the development of heavy metal. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979 but has since had a successful solo career releasing 11 studio albums. The first seven of which were all awarded multi-platinum certifications in the U.S. He has reunited with Black Sabbath on several occasions such as recording the album 13 in 2013.

Osbourne’s longevity and success have earned him the informal title of “Godfather of Heavy Metal”

Tribute is a live album featuring Ozzy’s work with hard rock guitarist Randy Rhoads, in whose honor the album was released in 1987, 5 years after his passing.

Endeavor is proud to launch another season of music inspired snowboards. Run DMC is an American hip hop group from Hollis, Queens, New York, founded in 1981 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jam Master Jay. The group is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture. Run DMC is one of the best-known hip hop acts of the 1980s who, along with LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy, signified the advent of the new school of hip hop music.

They were the first group in the genre to have a gold album (Run DMC, 1984) and be nominated for a Grammy Award. They were the first to earn a platinum record (King of Rock, 1985), the first to earn a multiplatinum certification (Raising Hell, 1986), the first to have videos on MTV, and the first to appear on American Bandstand and the cover of Rolling Stone. Run DMC was the only hip hop act to perform at Live Aid in 1985.

The group was among the first to highlight the importance of the MC and DJ relationship. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked them number 48 in their list of the greatest musical artists of all time. In 2007, Run DMC. was named “The Greatest Hip Hop Group of All Time” by MTV.com and “Greatest Hip Hop Artist of All Time” by VH1. On April 4, 2009, rapper Eminem inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In doing so, Run DMC became the second hip hop group in history to be inducted, after Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. 

Endeavor is proud to launch another season of music inspired snowboards. Run DMC is an American hip hop group from Hollis, Queens, New York, founded in 1981 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jam Master Jay. The group is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture. This photo, taken in Paris by Ricky Powell, is iconic and the perfect image for our snowboard collaboration.

Along with LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy, Run DMC signified the advent of the new school of hip hop music. They were named “The Greatest Hip Hop Group of All Time” by MTV.com in 2007 and “Greatest Hip Hop Artist of All Time” by VH1. Featuring Run DMC on our late release snowboard is an absolute honour.

50 Years of Going Beyond - The Movie (Full Video)

For the last five decades, Whistler Blackcomb has left its mark on those who are drawn to the mountains.

But while 50 Years of Going Beyond solidifies the resort's legacy in the past, there is no denying that the last 50 years is just the beginning.

The Manboys: Spinal Injections For All

Hi-yo, Manboys here. This is some stuff that went down with us this late spring. Some of it will shake you up and really make you rethink what’s important to you in your life. And some of it will make you thirsty. Like literally dehydrated. We don’t know the science behind it, maybe something to do with crying or maybe just the heat from your computer causing you to sweat? Whatever it is, we apologize, but we cannot prevent it. So yeah: Monster Shred Show, end of the season goofing, and a spine on Whistler that we hit at one point with some international pals that know how to send it like a bunch of surgeons. Enjoy, amigos!

The Manboys are Mark Sollors, Rusty Ockenden, Jody Wachniak, Robjn Taylor, Matt Belzile, and Chris Rasman.

Also including Kazu Kokubo, Kohei Kudo, Arhur Longo and Craig McMorri$

Endeavor Snowboards // The Archetype Lab

The boys over at http://thegemsstock.com did a little write up on the Archetype Lab.

Article by Andy Malton

Endeavor Snowboards were born back in 2002 when legendary photographer Scott Serfas and pro rider Max Jenke joined forces. Based out of Vancouver, BC where the nearby Coast Mountains provide a vast and inspirational testing ground, Endeavor produce a tight range of decks that are renowned for offering all terrain versatility combined with a high build quality.

Although Endeavor manufacture their snowboards outside Canada, they have the facility to design and produce prototypes in a bespoke R&D lab in Vancouver itself. This is the Archetype Lab. Archetype is a concept that allows Endeavor to try new shapes, materials and constructions before production.

The vertical design philosophy breeds and encourages an unhindered creative approach by minimizing the time between the initial creation of an idea, to the actual testing of that idea. Sketch a concept / sleep on it / build it next morning / ride Whister mountain in the afternoon. No emailing foreign factories, no waiting for samples. Archetype decks are on the snow within hours. As Endeavor also have exactly the same materials to hand in the Archetype Lab as their production factories do, it also means that anyone who rides an Endeavor production board should know that it didn’t just go from computer program to factory to snow but has been sampled and tested by Endeavor and their team first.

Unsurprisingly some pretty special one-off snowboards come out of the Archetype Lab. At ISPO this past winter a rather beautiful looking powder board caught the eye of many who visited the Endeavor stand. TheGemsstock got in touch with Endeavor brand manager Rob Dow for the low down. It turns out this deck is an experimental board that Rob made recently using a zebra wood veneer top, along with Canadian Aspen for the core. The distinctive Carbon section in the tail makes it a pretty stiff board to ride but I imagine it holds an edge really well. It looks like the kind of board that would be awesome to ride on deep, big mountain lines in BC or Alaska.
