…The Grinch is ready to tow you?


Distortion Boarding’s Grinch Winch and Snow Grinch are winch machines designed for wakeboarding, skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, and any other board sport where you need a little extra speed and momentum to pull off sick tricks.

With an adjustable hand throttle for varying the towing speed, a hydraulic brake for quick and easy stops, a rope friendly roller system that allows you to tow from almost any angle, and a 7 hp gas engine with 90:1 overdrive for top speeds of 25 to 30 MPH and deepwater starts, the Grinch is designed to be very user friendly.

With an adapter for a 2” receiver hitch on your vehicle, a tow kit for wheeling around, and the old school mounting method of just hammering the thing into the ground with stakes, the Winch is ready to go when and where you are, provided you can bring the necessary board skills to the table of course.

Just make sure your health insurance is in good shape before grabbing the rope, because this is one fun way to go down in a blaze of glory.

…It’s TGI Friday: Adidas Originals


Adidas Originals are fantastic Flash games that bring sports back to the streets with events like Urban Archery (score by shooting arrows as far as possible), the 10M Dive Bomb (twist your body to make the biggest splash possible), Freestyle Hurdles (get over (or under) 10 hurdles in a 400 meter race through a construction zone) and the Shopping Cart Bob (you, a tricked-out shopping cart and a steep hill full of obstacles).

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Pontiac Red Bull Solstice GXP?

Rhys Millen

Rhys Millen isn’t good at going straight.

Rhys Millen is good, however, at going sideways. And he’s good at doing it very, very, very quickly.

Lucky for Rhys, there are two driving sports that don’t require much forward momentum: drifting and hill climbing. And also lucky for Rhys, he’s a god of both.

Why then did he give up his tire frying V8 powered GTO that was given to him to conquer the hills and slides with?

Because Pontiac made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Would you turn down a 500 hp turbocharged roadster?

Didn’t think so.

Rhys’ new GXP uses the 2.0 liter ECOtec engine that comes from the factory, but it’s been tweaked and tuned to produce over 500 horsepower thanks to turbocharging and a host of other go fast goodies (thick-wall iron cylinder liners, a race-ported cylinder head, tubular stainless steel exhaust headers, a performance camshaft, a unique engine control system and a water to air intercooled turbocharger).

Rear-wheel driven, Red Bull painted, six-speed shifted Pontiac Solstice GXP that runs off of E85 ethanol-based fuel (it’s good for the environment too)?

Yes please.

…Mystic Ball makes Chinlone look beautiful?

Mystic Ball

Mystic Ball is a documentary about Chinlone, a “combination of sport and dance, a team sport with no opposing team. In essence Chinlone is non-competitive, yet it’s as demanding as the most competitive ball games. The focus is not on winning or losing, but how beautifully one plays the game”. It’s played by the Myanmar of Burma, and really does look quite beautiful (and difficult).
