San Francisco’s The Darkside Initiatve links with K2 for a special edition of the latter’s AFTERBLACK snowboard. Emblazoned with commemorative graphics and a bold color-blocked Triax glass & carbon DarkWeb base, the board is limited to a mere 24 pieces. “I was really inspired by the blocking on old hockey sweaters,” The Darkside Initiative’s Colin Miller said. “I wanted it to look simple and clean. … We know how authentic a brand K2 is and we want people to see this snowboard in use.
