From the heart of the 973 in New Jersey, street rat Sam Zahner grew up making something out of the nothing on the small hills of the ice coast. He later made the journey to higher ground in Colorado enabling him to progress at the speed of thought on bigger terrain.
However he always felt most at home in the streets, where he and his crew of skiing misfits worked the night shift on the prowl for the next nasty urban terrain to challenge and destroy! They lug around more gear than a construction crew, working relentlessly through dark frigid nights on a mission to document skiing in the darkest back streets and alleyways of the snowiest and coldest cities across North America. After a long winter of hungry days and thirsty nights, they edit their footage into a work of art that blow minds and inspire other skiers around the world.
Sam has made a name for himself as one of today's rowdiest street skiers, and if you haven't seen it already, check out his psycho closing segment in the bad ass ski movie, "Banged Up".
JSKIS built only 200 pair of this new "Street Rat" Limited Edition graphic on "The Allplay" ski and hand signed and numbered each pair so you have a very unique ski like no one else. Order yours before they're gone and get out there with your crew to destroy terrain from the mountain to the streets!
In addition to the hardgoods, we teamed up with JSKIS to put together a capsule collection featuring the art on Sam's ski. A classic coaches jacket and SUPIMA tee let you rep the Street Rat on the hill, in the streets and everywhere in between.
