After winning Transworld Snowboarding's "Rookie of the Year" award last January and following his promotion to DC's pro ranks in May, Justin Fronius has continued his 2014 tear into December with the opening volume of DC's new video project, The Underline Series. Fronius oozes style, even when getting gnarly on quadruple-kink nosepresses, and shakes off some brutal slams to come through with a trio of epic enders that have to be seen to believed. If you've seen a gnarlier street part this year, you better let us know.
This year marks the celebration of Supreme’s 20th anniversary. The past two decades have brought the NYC label undeniable success, and it treks on as one of the most influential brands in streetwear. They also have gained notoriety for executing some of the industry’s most successful collabs, and this year was no different. In 2014, Supreme continued to make its imprint in a number of territories by joining forces with footwear brands, noteworthy artists, and established fashion labels. We’ve looked back on its 20th year of operation and plucked the most thoughtfully designed and highly coveted Supreme collaborations of 2014.
Highsnobiety has been doing an ongoing project dubbed the Reebok Classic Stylists Project. Essentially they partner with stylist groups and have them create editorial around classic Reebok lines. Back in June they did one with Endless Summer revolving around skateboarding. And their latest installment in Moscow links up with streetwear boutique FOTT uses skateboarding once again.
We're not quite sure how we feel about this one. Unlike the Endless Summer piece, they're merely using the board as a prop in this one—pushing, mall-grabbing, standing in a nose manual, and tick-tacking don't count for skateboarding. Check the video below and let us know your feelings (or disgust).
Everybody loves a good slam, even if it involves (and it usually does) a kid getting wrecked. We've all been there. We can all appreciate the pain. But that's not going to stop us watching from watching and laughing, not as long as little rippers like this dude keep launching themselves into the air in the name of two-wheeled glory. Shout out to the homey who filmed this, slow mo'ed it, and threw it on the internet. You, my friend, are what makes the world go round.

What's a sandy butt photo you ask? It's exactly what it sounds like. A female in a bikini posing with lots of sand on her butt. They're sorta like surfing's beach equivalent of a barrel shot.

So we decided to put some of the best together in one spot for you to look back on the year of sandy butt photos with fondness. You're welcome.

While Terje Haakonsen is know across the world as a pioneer of competitive snowboarding and longtime champion of the DIY spirit–remember this is a man who once boycotted snowboarding’s integration into the Olympics–Where Is Your God Now showcases the legendary Norwegian like you've never seen him.

What do you get when you strap 50 tanks of helium and 90 giant balloons to a lawn chair and tell base jumper and all-around madman Erik Roner to climb aboard? How about the craziest web video of the day. The concept for Rockstar Energy's LIFTED is essentially a real world Up, but Roner unsurprisingly takes it to the next level, riding the contraption over a mile into the sky before pulling out a shotgun and blasting the balloons. After he runs out of ammo, Roner does what he does best, and leaps out into nothing. Trust us, this is just as insane as it sounds.
