That’s it, that’s all. Fin.
Once again, the battles were close with JSLV & Hydro74 at each other’s throats all day long. And it stayed that way. One would go ahead by a vote, then the other would tie it. Then they’d both get a vote. Then another. This went on for hours until I decided to push the voting another 12 hrs. In the end, after thousands of votes, JSLV narrowly beat out Hydro74 to take the crown. Congratulations go out both of them, as well as the weekly category winner. Thank you to thousands of people who have voted on the brackets. I can’t express how grateful I am that you all enjoyed this & voted along all month.
Congratulations to Per Welinder and the crew at JSLV for taking the Snow Category title this year. Therew was some CLOSE battles all week with Willie McMillon’s Bluebird Wax battling them hard well into the finals.
I’ve probably seen the full movie 1000x with being on daily rotation when my crew of friends and I moved up to Mammoth to clean the main lodge toilets at night / ride our snowboards during the day. It was a fun time in snowboarding, long before everybody rode, let alone snowboarding being in the Olympics. Crazy to think shortly after this came out is when I started my design career, ultimately getting a job at Plan B Skateboards / Type A Snowboards and over the years have become pretty good friends with many of the riders in the videos at that time.
March Logo Madness is back again! Brought back after such a tremendous response last year, the competition is back again this year!

Made the annual trek out to Denver for the SIA / Snowsports show. Always a good time seeing old friends, checking my work & hopefully getting my shred on. This year it was actually winter like & the snow was amazing for the demo days. Like powder days amazing. Good times. Check after the jump for more photos of the shenanigans…Gimme some more.

Known Willie from Bluebird a long, long, long, long time. Rad dude. I’m surprised he could make something like this so fun to watch because he’s always so serious, as many people who live in Jackson, WY usually are #sarcasm
Max Jenke is a former pro-shred & one of the founders of Endeavor Snowboards. In case you didn’t know, Endeavor kills it on the design front. I’ve talked with him a few times & he’s a really nice guy. He’s up for a $100k grant in Cannuckian land (aka Canada), all he needs is votes. Trying not to get too into it but a vote for him isn’t necessarily a vote for Max or Endeavor or even snowboarding, but a vote for all of action sports. Vote away, then tell your friends and then vote some more!
So, this is it, we’ve reached The Finals. Thousands of votes cast and we’re down to two logos. Both are icons in the industry. 90s upstart, Volcom with the Volcom Stone vs 60s originator, Vans’ and their “Off the Wall” Skateboard. Round 5 was another close one. Both Powell & Burton had the early lead, Vans overtook Burton midweek and Volcom had a late day surge on Friday to overtake Powell by a few votes. This one’s for all the marbles and the illustrious World Champion of the World / best logo in action sports title.
Another round down, another close battle. This time the closest was between Vans & Adidas, with Vans winning by 7 votes. Not quite as close as it’s 1-vote squeaker last week but still, it was a bit too close for comfort if you’re rooting for the Original Skate Shoe. This week Vans battles against snow heavyweight, Burton while on the other side of the brackets, the Skate titan Powell dukes it out with Surf superstar, Volcom. Judging by the past few weeks, one of these will be decided by less than 10 votes, but which one?
Head on over and vote on the Final Four in round 5.
The fourth round is open for voting in our March Logo Madness competition. The battle between DC & Vans was as close as it possibly could be with Vans besting DC by a SINGLE VOTE. For the 4th round, the bracket champions will be decided and every one is a heavy contender for the competition championship.
The fourth round / Elite 8 are:
Best of Skate: Powell vs Element
Best of Surf: Quiksilver vs Volcom
Best of Snow: Burton vs Santa Cruz
Best of Lifestyle: Adidas vs Vans
The response to the contest has been great, it’s down to the last couple rounds now and only eight logos remain but these four votes may take more time to decide than the entire 32 votes in the first round.
Ayumo Hirano should brush up on his english, he’s going to have a lot of interviews at the Olympics next year.
Ride along will you? This looks too fun, I’d really like to do it one day.
