Roughly two weeks have passed since the first glimpse of issue SIX. We hope you made it out to the Depot on Halloween to watch the curtain get drawn, but if you didn't, we hope you know how to read. A recap of the night, through the eyes of Keenan Faulkner-Cawley, is second to none.
While the cover is definitely revealing, we wouldn't blame you if it left a bit more to be desired. You still may be wondering... is Parker tormeneted? Are you tormented? Is the past year in snowboarding just one big manifestation of tormentation? A bit morbid, but valid nonetheless. You just have to buy some print to find out.
Presented by Arc’teryx, Burton, K2, The North Face, Ride, Salomon, 686, and Vans, Issue SIX is a 228-page, ad-free, snowboard yearbook. You could call it a magazine, but it’s actually a coffee table book featuring 9 articles, 99 gallery pages, and a gloss text cover.
A half a year in the making, this issue (like the five before it) is a carefully curated selection of images and stories, compiled into one perfectly bound stack of paper. We truly pour everything we have into it, so grab a nice drink, find a comfy seat, and settle into the last year of snowboarding.
