Vexum Strikes Again


They’re on our radar again.

The snowboard-inspired clothing line, owned and operated by two local 15-year-old shredders, is looking for the next big riders to sponsor.

“With the help of the ‘Shred for Drake’ shirts, Vexum has really taken off, and we think it’s time to build a street team of both snowboarders and skiers,” Jacob Roscoe, Vexum owner said.

To be eligible, teams of four riders (skiers or boarders) should create a short film to be entered by noon on Feb. 3. The films will then be premiered at Sun Valley Sports, 6-9 p.m. Feb.7.

The contestants of the winning video will receive:

  • 425693_539583752738136_678567523_n1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum hoodie/T-shirt per member.
  • $50 Sun Valley bucks

Second place will receive:

  • 1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum T-shirt per member
  • $25 Sun Valley bucks

Third place will receive:

  • 1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum T-shirt for each member
  • $10 Sun Valley bucks

As an added bonus, Vexum will choose one rider from both the first and second place videos to be sponsored by the clothing line.

“We are really excited to see the local talent,” Roscoe said. “We won’t promise anything, but if we are really impressed by the videos, then we may sponsor more than two riders.”

Roscoe said they are looking for originality and solid bangers when choosing winning videos.

The price to enter the video contest is $25 per team. To enter, visit the Vexum blog.

Vexum, previously known as Lumen, is owned and operated by Jacob Roscoe and David Ross. The 15-year-old boys started the company on a whim after a creative study hall. The company, now on its second line, creates T-shirts and sweatshirts with extreme sport enthusiasts in mind.

On your day off..

ImageThe lovely state of Ohio has given us another day off riding with the recent heat wave and closed home resorts.

Depressing.. I know.

So in an effort to keep your spirits up, here’s the second episode of Mark Gilc’s “Grilosode” Series straight from the European Alps (and yes, those are hard boots).

“$1,000 for a triple cork”

As the U.S. Airbag crew stood outside the new Brandywine bar, they joked about giving $1,000 to anyone who can successfully throw a triple cork at the BmBw U.S. Airbag event that weekend (Jan.4-6).

U.S. AiRBAGAlthough no one landed a triple cork, the four crew members agreed on their favorite tricks of the weekend:

1. Double Cork Backside 1080

2. 360 Truck Driver

3. A boosted Rodeo 7 Tailgrab

So as the airbag makes it to your local resort this winter, take advantage of the “softest AiRBAG in the industry,” and go big or get creative.

The airbag will be at Mad River Mountain Jan. 18-20 and Seven Springs March 15-17. For more dates in both the West, Midwest and East Coast, check out

Let’s Get Silly

I’m tired of everything being so serious..

So relax, have some laughs and watch this not so serious ski edit from 4bi9 Media.

4Bi9 Media

Thanks Newschoolers for cheering up my day once again!


A little more about 4Bi9:

On their site, Saga Outerwear said “The documented travels of the 4bi9 crew give inspiration that it’s not all about high dollar sponsors trying to bring this industry to the main stream like some sort of franchised extreme sport. It’s about a rooted company of friends, founded on the pure enjoyment of riding and filming while cutting out the mainstream popularity contest.”
