Clearly, the best 4th of July parties involve boats, BBQs, beverages, fireworks, and – FREEEEEDOM! I remember one particular party my family threw the year I turned 21. I finally had the freedom to consume something called a Bucket of Fun with my older cousin. Later, while setting off fireworks, my cousin tripped into the plywood staging we were using to ensure they’d shoot straight into the sky. Instead, the fireworks shot straight across our yard towards our neighbors, who were enjoying the display from their hot tub. I didn’t get in trouble though, because hey – freedom!

* Applies to orders shipped to US (including Alaska and Hawaii)
** Applies to orders shipped to the lower 48 States.

evogear.com Celebrates Dad’s Day with Free Shipping

3:37 pm   -   June 5th, 2008

We wanted to give a shout out to Dads and Grads with this week’s hookup. Shipping (to the lower 48) is free on all orders through June 15th!

Are you getting your dad a scraper to clean his barbeque for Father’s Day? And are you expecting him to be so excited that he’ll cook you up a juicy sirloin steak right away? Me too! If I had known about this offer, though, I would have gotten us both Dakine Heli-Pro packs so we could head out to the woods for a hike for some quality bonding time. I’d carry the gummi bears and handheld GPS tracker and dad would carry all the other stuff we might need – 3 pounds of trail mix, a dictionary, rocks to throw at any bears we might bump into, and 5 liters of water. He’d tell me funny stories about waterskiing in the 70s and I’d ask him a million questions about life and stuff, just like old times!

evo and Burton Snowboards Team Up Again

4:00 pm   -   April 9th, 2008

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 4/8/2008

Brief: Burton announces the winners of their controversial “Poach 4 Freedom” contest. With the support of the ski and snowboard retailer evo, each winner walks with $6,250.

Mad River Glenn: The Hawk
Alta: The Shin Diggers
Deer Valley: Andrew Braden & The Monoski

Burton’s controversial challenge initially offered $5,000 to the person or crew that submited the best video documentation of their poach experience from each of the last four remaining “fascist” resorts that didn’t allow snowboarding. evo, which sells both skis and snowboards at it’s Seattle Ski and Snowboard Shop and online at www.evogear.com announced they would add $5,000 to Burton’s total purse for the “Poach for Freedom” contest. evo’s additional $5,000 increased each award by $1,250.

As a retailer that represents both skiers and snowboarders, evo felt the time is long overdue for archaic discriminatory practices to fall by the wayside. Owner, Bryce Phillips explains, “Burton is a leader. We see their move to challenge the resort community as a catalyst for long overdue change. Our company was founded on the concept of inclusiveness and we want to wholly support Burton’s move by adding $5,000 of prize money.”

In the end, Taos ended up opening up to snowboarders in March but 3 resorts still remain closed to snowboarders. Burton and evo are asking you to continue to spread the word and remember, it’s not over till it’s over.

evo is a specialty retailer rooted in the board and action sports world that explores the collaboration between culture and sport by seamlessly joining fashion, music, art, and sport. Through unique events, movie premiers, art exhibitions, and partnerships evo is simply providing a venue to share its love. Passion for building community is a driving force; both on a national level with www.evogear.com and locally in it’s Seattle Ski and Snowboard Shop.

Seattle-based Online Ski and Snowboard Retailer, evogear.com, and Burton Snowboards Team up for $5000 Video Contest

1:46 pm   -   January 3rd, 2008

Online Ski and Snowboarding Retailer www.evogear.com is adding $5,000 to the total prize money for Burton’s “Poach for Freedom” Snowboarding Video Contest.

In a surprise move, Seattle-based ski and snowboard retailer evo (www.evogear.com) announced that they will add $5,000 cash to the total purse Burton is giving away in their “Poach for Freedom” contest. Burton’s controversial challenge referred to as “Sabotage Stupidity” offers $5,000 to the person or crew that submits the best video documentation of their poach experience from each of the last four remaining “fascist” resorts that do not allow snowboarding. Videos entries can be submitted and watched on Burton’s website at http://www.burton.com/poachers/. evo’s additional $5,000 increases each award by $1,250.

As a retailer that represents both skiers and snowboarders, evo feels the time is long overdue for archaic discriminatory practices to fall by the wayside. Owner, Bryce Phillips explains, “Burton is a leader. We see their move to challenge the resort community as a catalyst for long overdue change. Our company was founded on the concept of inclusiveness and we want to wholly support Burton’s move by adding $5,000 of prize money.”

evo regularly brings skiers and snowboarders together for events like movie premiers and other industry parties at its 6,000 sq. ft. retail location. To further promote synergy among skiers and boarders, the company sponsors a “switch day” when all employees go to the mountain together, trade ski and snowboard equipment, and ride together.

From the very start evo has given equal representation to skiers and snowboarders. Many evo customers participate in both sports and evo feels that it’s time for resorts to recognize that reality. What better way to do so than by augmenting Burton’s “Poach for Freedom” challenge. Phillips elaborates, “If you add our contribution to Burton’s generous prize, it should almost be enough to buy a season’s pass at Deer Valley after they open their doors to snowboarders.”
