New shot of the shop

Last year, we finally broke down and PAID someone to do our landscaping. Usually I go out and pick the cheapest plants, that don't look at all good together, and kill 1/2 of them in 6 months. So here we are coming to the end of our first year with the new landscaping, and I must say it still looks nice. It raining for the past 6 weeks help out alot as well.
It would be really great if the all powerful Loudoun County would allow me a bigger sign. This little one is hard to see from the road. But we all know that won't happen. They are too busy taking away our road front and raising our taxes. hahaha....(It's funny because it's true).

Flip for the kids

It's hard out there for a kid if their looking for a dope skateboard that is actually "good". That's why we at Alpine always try and keep great shapes and graphics for the kids with size 5 feet who want to slay it too. The 2 decks on the right,from FLIP, are 7.0 and are built just the same as the bigger models.
Model on the left is a Santa Cruz that we keep getting in, and selling out of. The Graphics are simply SICK!

Independent Trucks Re-Up

Back in stock are the Reynolds and the Koston Independent trucks. These are both super rad looking, and they have the same strength and style of every set of trucks that Indy stamps their name on.

Creature Wood and NEW Mob CREATURE Grip

This is the first GRAPHIC mob we have had. MOB is alpines favorite grip, and Creature might be our strongest line. Pair these together and we have some hot new flavor for the top of your deck. Show your love of all that is green and demon filled with creature grip. Only $11.
2 New Creature graphics and a re up of the old 8.0 creature kills. AAAhhhhh, We love the green.

Rob Roskopp Re Issue White

Damn this deck is dope. When Sean at NHS said he had a white dipped Roskopp, I knew right away we had to have it. The Re-issue market is hot right now, and there are some SICK decks showing up weekly. We were only able to grab one of these, so if you are a collector, come on in. Next week we should have Jason Jessee autographed decks. Thanks NHS for bringing me back to graphics that I loved.

Alpine's Coach Pitch Team

Well here they are. The "Killer Bees". I saw Johan put up a pic of his squad, so I though I should do the same. (I think we could take them in a 3 game series, but that's just me).
I am in my 3rd year of coaching these groms, and they are slaying the competition. We are proud to sponsor a team in Herndon's youth league. I am lucky enough to have a great support staff, and kids that listen to me 41% of the time. Pretty solid if you ask me.

Kneissl's back?

A funny thing happened when I opened my inbox today. I got an email saying Kneissl's back! What? We used to sell these skis in the 70's and early 80's. I always thought they were cool, because the graphics, when put together, made the kneissl star. This was unheard of back then. Asym Graphics on the red,white,and blue star. But since their heyday, I have seen them pop up here and there, and the company has changed hands more than a few times.
What the industry needs now is another ski company. With no growth, and companies falling on harder times, it might not be the best time to re introduce this brand. Or maybe I'm wrong, and this is the perfect time. Hell, what do I know anyway.
Check out their site here. It's just a shell right now.

Plan B drops One Off Series

Plan B actually made a board series that is somewhat individual. We saw this with the first run of decks they made, then everything else has been cookie cutter. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It's safe, it works, and it sells. Look for these within the next 2 weeks here at alpine.
