From the FRENDS crew:
Well, we all know that everyday should be a day to appreciate your frends, peers, family members, and anyone of the matter. But, on October 10th we wanted to extend an invitation to you and the rest of the world to join our holiday we have dubbed as “Frends Day.” Use Mother’s Day or Father’s day for example. You appreciate your parents everyday, don’t you? But yet there is still that one day you go that extra mile to show them how thankful you are to have them in your lives. So with that being said, let’s use October 10th to appreciate your frends and have the best time possible together!
In anticipation of Frends Day we will be having daily contests and free giveaways on our Facebook Page (facebook.com/noIinFrends), previews of our new Frendsvision vidoes on wearefrends.com, announcing new FRENDS, and on 10/10 we will be launching our new Frends website and giving away the Grand Prize surprise that you can be apart of by entering the contests going on now on the Facebook.
There is no I in Frends Day, and there is no I in Frends. Enjoy the new excuse to take the day to let loose and have as much fun as possible with your frends!

For snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, the decision to pose naked in ESPN The Magazine’s third-annual Body Issue, which hits newsstands Friday, was not made lightly. “I took it so seriously,” she says. “It’s such a vulnerable thing for an athlete to do.”

She knows from experience. In February 2004, Bleiler appeared on the cover of FHM weaing only body paint. A few months after taking silver at the 2006 Winter Olympics, she posed for Jane magazine’s “clothes off our back” feature covered only by a not-so-strategically placed sheet. Bleiler even appeared once before in the buff in ESPN The Mag, in the 2004 Winter X Games preview issue, along with four other athletes willing to bear it all. But she swore she’d never do it again. At least not until it was on her terms. She says she was young each of those times and felt pressure to say yes. More than once, she felt the magazine’s editors didn’t portray her image as promised.
“That’s why I turned down the Body Issue the first two times they asked,” she says. “I wasn’t ready. This time, I was saying yes because I wanted to do it. And I felt confident in my decision.”
In each of the first two Body Issues, one action sports athlete was featured in the much-anticipated and all-nude Bodies We Want section: surfers Claire Bevilacqua in 2009 and Kelly Slater in 2010. This year’s issue features three: Bleiler, Olympic snowboarder Louie Vito and four-time world surfing champ Steph Gilmore.

The K2 Snowboarding PopThis! Tour is kicking off again. And this season with an international mission – mission 100 cm. As last year’s winner Sebi Müller from Germany popped 100 cm at the PopThis! Highest Ollie Tournament, there is a huge challenge to be met. Join in and prove your ollie skills at one of the tours stops and win a trip with the K2 pros to High Cascade Summer Camp at Mt. Hood, USA.
We will have our award-winning K2 Fastplant board with its BambooyahTM technology available that provides you with the ultimate pop in order to fullfil the mission! No registration required! The only thing you need is plenty of pop in your pants!
The tour kicks off as a part of the Hotzone.TV Park Opening in Hintertux on the first weekend in October. The final takes place in April 2012 at Camp K2, Steven’s Pass in the USA. Each tour stop winner will receive a limited-edition K2 skatedeck, designed by Don Pendleton and a watch from the new G- SHOCK collection, which is as indestructible as the K2 Fastplant. Taking part is certainly worth it!
