Urbanears is offering 3 lucky readers a pair of their compact Medis earphones. What makes the Medis unique besides the mulitple colorways, is how it sits in your ear. “The Medis uses the patented EarClick solution to secure the earpiece at two separate points to the outer canal of your ear rather than one, relieving pressure to a nearly non-existent level while keeping it firmly in place. Meaning the days of uncomfortable in-ears that repeatedly fall out are over.” enter: “Like” Highsnobiety on FACEBOOK and jump into the Urbanears discussion HERE.

Congrats Ultimate!! Bringing out the big guns for this night.
'Once upon a time a cute little vodka guzzling teen from Winnipeg, Manitoba figured out she liked to snowboard. Six years later I would meet this young lady. At this point she had a rebuilt wrist, two new ACL’s, a strict Vegan diet, a clean liver and an unbelievably chipper Canadian personality. The personal and professional life of Darrah Reid-McLean may have been full of roller coaster like obstacles, but whatever elements helped form this young lady one thing is certain, she is now one of the brightest young stars of female snowboarding. With her tween dreams of Olympic Gymnastics dashed and her hard partying ways largely behind her Darrah is now filming parts, climbing the popularity ladder and impressing the shit out of every boy that gets a chance to see her ride.'

The idea came when I was sitting around with Oliver Barton and we were thinking about everything that went into it last year. I didn’t know how we could top it. I just wanted to have fun. So I started thinking about how there’s so much emphasis on indoor skateparks now. It made me think of recreating the old World Industries days, because that’s the park I saw on videos from when I started skating. We didn’t want to script it. We just got the first batch of clothes from that era, which took a lot of work to find—those really baggy pants, T-shirts with thick collars, like cotton was really thick then. I got little iron-on graphics for the shirts, like the Rudy Johnson 40 ounce. I was psyched on using a camera from that era, too, so I thought it’d be cool to film in Hi8. Oliver shot on film, too, so it looked authentic. I wanted guys to skate and I just ran around and filmed it, kind of how they probably did it back in the day. I think everyone was surprised on how much footage we got in the end. The video we made was only part of all the footage we had.' Click HERE.
Thanks to the almost 1,800 supporters of skateboarding who came through the Emerica Stay Gold premiere. The wait was well worth it and the video delivers! Not going to ruin it if you have not seen it. You're just going to have to go to your fav shop and demand this video. Shouts to all the Emerica team who came through and see more photos by Mark Gutknecht HERE. Push.ca coverage is HERE.

Alongside their numerous contributors, the cali-based company makes clothing that can satisfy a very wide range of fashion-forward skaters and non-skaters alike.'
