Monument Snowboards is proud to announce the release of our 2004.2005 web site today, and we’re pretty stoked on it as well as the addition to our team this year.

In January, we picked up two riders from Virginia, Tristan Herbert (Great Valls, VA), and Jeremy Cline (Harrisonburg, VA). Both riders have ridden professionally for other companies over the past decade, and we are stoked to have them on our roster to represent our brand. The 2004.2005 season will be a season to look forward to since our inception in 2001. Jeff Johnson continues to ride for us in Gresham, Oregon, and is healing from his injuries from an unfortunate rail incident.

In February, we also unveiled our new logo, which looks like spaceship or something from Tron. Tristan Herbert came up with the initial design and the final product came as a result of collaboration between him and team manager Dave Tran. All 2004.2005 snowboard designs were designed by the riders themselves and two designers from Norfolk, VA (theM3thod.com and stopBreathing.com).

Our focus is bringing back the fun in riding and to show another side of riding that isn’t all contests, wearing a different bandana on your snowboard pants each week, or pink goggles. Well, pink goggles are cool, especially on dudes. We just survived a week at Mammoth Lakes, and we should wrap up editing for our video over the next couple weeks.

Our short snowboard flick next season will be available for free (limited supply) at participating shops next season in the Mid Atlantic. In addition to our videos, a few select participating shops will have kiosks in their stores to help riders learn more about the Monument Snowboards brand. The 16-page 2004.2005 catalog is available, and to receive one, please visit our web site(http://WWW.MONUMENTsnowboards.com). All of next year’s boards will be sidewall construction, blessed with a Crown Sintered 4000 base, recessed rails (two models), and all of our materials have been upgraded from last year’s materials. And of course, made in the USA.

On May 1 2004, we will have a table at a skatepark fundraiser in Annapolis, MD that Brian Harris of Nihilism Clothing is throwing, in which 5 bands, a skate demo, and possibly a motocross demo will take place to raise money for a park by the DCSHOE Skateplaza project. To help with the project, we are donating a snowboard to raffle at the event. In the fall, we will keep you updated on our video premiere party somewhere in the DC metropolitan area.

So come check out our new site, we’ll be adding stuff to it, and upgrading the design of it, over the next couple weeks, if you have a sponsor me video, feel free to send it our way. Just email Team Manager Dave Tran at sponsorme@monumentsnowboards.com, for more information.
