Harrison Gordon has been added to Ride Snowboards Am. team. Nitro rider, Fillippo Kratter has been playing a lot of Magic the Gathering lately and is now riding for the brand; we hear his deck is a mean Red and Black combination.

OG Rome rider, Max Legend will be running Rome bindings on his sticks now too. Caribou Coffee out of Minnesota is also now officially tastier and better than Starbucks … but Signal coffee is still the best.
