The thoughts of K2 go out the the family and fellow friends of Aaron Robinson. News of his tragic passing has made us all reflect on his life and infectious smile. Over the last few days it has been incredible to hear all the good words people are saying and posting despite the difficulty it is to find those words. As all of us at K2 process the news and our feelings we have collected some words, drawings, and best of times photos that we are sharing as part of the remembrance of a person we all loved so much.
“Yesterday a gem in the snowboard world passed on. Aaron Robinson (A Rob) has suddenly left us…..doing what he loved; snowboarding with friends in Chile. When a life is cut abruptly short there are no words, just feelings and memories. I feel blessed to have gotten to know A Rob at a K2 photo shoot last August in Chile, and I smile when I think of his contagious passion and pure spirit….not to mention he ripped! A Rob you will be missed but never forgotten because you’ve left a contagious way of living life that will be celebrated and shared by everyone you touched along the way. My condolences to the Robinson family and all of his friends.” – Gretchen Bleiler
Words from Frequency Snowboarding
A collection of photos we had of A-Rob over the years
How’s it going suckas, Pete here. In case you didn’t know, K2 Snowboarding has been in the game now for just about 25 years. During this time not only has K2 been supported by many of the industry’s top snowboarders but they’ve executed damn good work to progress the product side of our beloved sport as well.
Over the next six weeks we are going to excavate some of the fossils, taking a look at the most revolutionary moments in K2 Snowboarding’s history. Centered around influential riders and the boards they rode we’re taking a step back in time (some further than others) as a way to investigate progressive moments in snowboarding. You can look forward to the voices of Shawn Farmer, Chris Engelsman, Travis Parker, Bobby Meeks, Wille Yli-Luoma and Gretchen Bleiler walking you through board design and the inspiration behind their board graphics.
Legend big mountain rider, Shawn Farmer will be kicking things off next week. In the meanwhile, here’s one of my favorite snowboard parts of all time. SNOWBOARDING IS FUN, SO HAVE FUN SNOWBOARDING!
Went up on the mountain and caught some air, grabbed my board, tweaked out, and had a blast with some friends. Here’s a video from the day.
The Boa Lacing System has been a staple of the K2 boot line for over 10 years now. Did you know their laces and dials are guaranteed for life? So confident in the strength of their cable they like to tow cars around with them in their spare time.
The video is a bit cheesy, pulling a semi with a boa lace system, but it does show there is nothing stronger on the market or guaranteed for life
We’ve tested the Boa Lace extensively in the lab.
Our 300+ member field test team has run it through the wringer (and up mountains, around dirt tracks, in blizzards, and through conditions that would make many people curl up and beg for mercy).
We even have a Lifetime Guarantee on the laces, just to back it all up.
Just in case you still questioned how strong the Boa Lace is, we created this video.
Caught on the ground with his pants off, Mason Aguirre talks about the K2 facilities as he gets dressed for his photo shoot. I think he may have been drinking when he packed his snowboard bag.
There’s nothing like some spring time splitboarding adventures in your local mountains. Enjoy this little video and get out on some mountain tops! -Tim

Tim Eddy – Panoramic Splitboarding Video
Yesterday was a glorious day of splitboarding, powder snow, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, beautiful scenery, oh and more powder snow. This is one of Tahoes many peaks that are easily accessible via splitboard(the best invention since pizza). Hope you enjoy this video of a most excellent day! -Tim
