WINTER ANTICS

WINTER ANTICS

Some of the best things about the holidays are the quick little trips to the snow and the memorable times that come with them. It seems that everyone has a story revealing a time where they were either thrown off a snow sled mid air after their dad built some botched snow jump, or pegged...

Best Week Ever.

Best Week Ever.

It's been a productive week for the COMUNE snow team. We've hit up some deep powder in the Tahoe backcountry and hit up a wallride street spot. Here's some photos from our adventures. Can't wait for next week! Merry Christmas!

CHINA DAY 4

CHINA DAY 4

It’s amazing when you get to be part of the current culture in a foreign country. The history is important as well, but you can’t be part of the past. From my past few trips here, I remember tons of people dancing in the parks, but I thought it was only something done in the...

SIDE STREETS AND SIDECARS

SIDE STREETS AND SIDECARS

On one of my first trips with Jake to Shanghai, we were blown away when we saw a guy fly by us on what I thought was a BMW service motorcycle. He pulled into a gas station, and I hurried to talk to him.  The bike looked to be WWII era, but was surprisingly clean....

CHINA DAY 3

CHINA DAY 3

Finally kicked the hangover from the Korean rice wine two days ago. Jake and I spent the majority of this morning at the sidecar motorcycle shop. After we left there, we took the subway to Changle Lu which is sort of like the Soho of Shanghai. We ate at Citizen Café, which is usually amazing,...

Vintage Snow Shoes and Secret Zones

Vintage Snow Shoes and Secret Zones

After torrential  rainfall, mudslides, power outages, and resort closure the weather in Tahoe finally stayed cold enough to accumulate several feet of fresh snow. COMUNE snow contributors geared up all the necessary backcountry equipment and hiked out out to our secret zone. I was lucky enough to be loaned some vintage snow shoes which worked...

CHINA DAY 2

CHINA DAY 2

Woke up this morning with a mind crushing hangover from the Korean rice wine last night.  There is nothing worse than being hung over in a foreign country, without all the comforts of home that make hangovers of this magnitude manageable.  Regardless, the best thing to do is get up and get outside.  I went...

CHINA DAY 1

CHINA DAY 1

Shanghai is the one place I have to mentally prepare myself for every time I go. There is something about the crowdedness and sheer size of everything that is unlike any where I have been. Your senses really have to adjust and at times it is extremely overwhelming. Things are constantly changing, and every time...

COMUNE JAPAN TRIP DAY 1

THE LIARS WEAR COMUNE ON THE ROAD

THE LIARS WEAR COMUNE ON THE ROAD

Back in March, COMUNE outfitted The Liars for their ‘Sisterworld’ tour. Who knew that seven months later Angus would still be rocking the pocket tee as part of his stage uniform. As they wrapped up their tour this past weekend at The Sex in Los Angeles it was nice to see the band looking as...
