Gilson X GI Joe Skis and Snowboards

Granted, it’s the 80s, cartoony version of GI Joe and not the classic 12″ version, but hey, knowing is half the battle, or something like that.

At any rate, snow sports company Gilson has introduced a line of skis and snowboards emblazoned with iconic Joe images.


Cobra Commander

Snake Eyes

Storm Shadow

You can also select a Team Joe or Cobra T-shirt.

The Gilson Hybrid-Camber Snowboard is blunted 3cm in the nose and 3cm in the tail, which makes the board measure a full 6cm shorter than their freestyle model.

The 99mm ski model is the All Mountain Ski which is the Best Selling Ski in the history of Gilson Snow.

    I remember back as a kid collecting the action figures with all my friends…I really f’d up one day playing a trick on my friends – I called them and told them the local mall toy store had a bunch of new Gi Joes…I hadn’t been to the mall, I didn’t know of any new GI Joes, I was just messing with them….next day, we’re on a school field trip and three of my friends showed up with brand new releases of GI Joes…turns out that the toy store had just gotten a new release the day before boy did I have it rubbed in my face all day during that field trip…by the time I showed up to the mall after school that day, nothing was left, except for one, Icebreaker. I learned a valuable lesson that day.

    So, my winter sport is ice hockey… I’ve never been skiing or snowboarding, but we’ve been meaning to give it a shot. This post may have put me over the edge. This child of the 80s has been sucked in.
