Get Phat

High in the snow-covered mountains of North America, a new and strange species of Homo sapiens is mutating. Characterized by wide, boardlike appendages that attach to its feet, this new species has built a language, a community, a world, around the act of riding a buttered stick down a slippery slope. The scientific name for this species is Singleplankus ripthehillicus.

That's Snowboarder to you and me.

So begins The Snowboarder's Total Guide to Life. Part anthropological study and part field guide, it gives the inside look at the mating rituals, migratory patterns, and grooming habits of nature's most recently evolved creature: the North American Snowboarder.

Bill Kerig, a self-confessed member of the species (and a snowboarding addict), lets us in on the Snowboard Creation Myth, explicates the Freudian significance of the stick, and gives us the skinny on how to...

perform the essential Cool Daddy Handshake
walk the walk
talk the talk
achieve the look
and, most important, how to be phat
