Okay, so this isn’t entirely new, but we were simply waiting for the right moment to put this up on our blog. And what better time than the middle of summer when you are dreaming/dying to get on some mountains. Stop thinking about how you’re going to sticker your board this season and kick back, relax, and watch Kevin Jones fishing the mainstream in this recent commercial for the new Ford Explorer. Kevin rules.

Brad Oates recently interviewed Rob Kingwill for YoBeat Mag. Click the image for the full deal. “He’s been snowboarding since putting ski boot liners in your sorels was the next big thing. He’s passed many an Olympic piss test administered by a midget cowboy named, Mickey. He has worked at Camp of Champions for over 10 years straight. He snowboards over 200 days a year. He was in the first X Games boardercross. He beat Terje to win the Open. Friends, Rob Kingwill is the man! With almost a quarter of a century snowboarding under his belt and the sun ain’t setting anytime soon. Rob’s skills on a snowboard are matched by few, mimicked by many and revered by all whom shred. He is currently riding 50-degree powdery lines in Alaska with Mike Basich and loving every moment of it. In a season of too much snow, not enough sun, television commercials, tram laps, private resorts with Justin Timberlake and board detail right down to his own graphic production, Rob finds time to get humped by Yobeat.”
