FAST-GROWING POLES

Lifelong skier and coach Blake Andreassen handcrafts bamboo poles ($89.95) in a North Vancouver studio. More than hearkening back to simpler times, Blake’s retro-looking bad-boys offer something more futuristic than aluminum or carbon fibre; they;re the only sustainable, biodegradable alternative out there. Besides being light, they’re kick-ass tough. Check out his flex test video and custom order the poles online.
