I am Xavier and I work at Spy Optic.
This is a pretty cool place to work.
Our HQ are in California, in Carlsbad, our products are designed in LA, and manufactured for most of them in Italy.
We are present in Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Surf, Wakeboarding, BMX, MX, Music…
The winter season started already for us, having the premieres of the movie we sponsored already done (Absinthe, Pirates, AdVita).
We already joined some cool events this year, like the Frontline jam organized by Kareem up in Sweden, or the Apocalypse Rail Battle organized in Italy, in Varese, the city were our products and handcrafted.
Check Daniel Ek from Norway doing a nice front board in Sweden, while Iouri Podladtchikov landed a switch back lip on the down rail (below)…
And here’s Morgan Le Faucheur in a classic front board all over the box, and Devid De Palma, the Italian local hero spinning over the down rail…
Far from those contests, Danny Larsen gets a pretty big interview in Speed the Chinese magazine, and Marco Feichtner, the cover of Snowboarder Japan.
The Pirates are rocking Asia.
Starting this weekend, if you are in Eastern Europe, you might see Darrell Mathes and Louie Vito in the Red Bull Tour looking for some bad ass rails….
Winter is coming, be sure to be ready for it.
