Hi to all of our awesome DU Supporters. You may have noticed that we haven’t been as active for quite some time now.

We want to send out a huge thank you to everyone by kicking off a sale right in time for the holiday season. Our left over stock at duapparel.com will be available for sale from $9.99-11.99. (Prices are already marked down, no code required). The sale with start now until the end of April 2018.

It definitely was not an easy decision to make but we did want to let everyone know that over the next couple of months, we will slowly be shutting down dulifestyle.com.

DU started as an idea and brought individuals together from a variety of different scenes including; action sports, music, art and fashion. From that idea, it developed into a household brand around Ottawa, shipping apparel from coast to coast in Canada, parts of the USA, Europe and we made even made our way down to Australia. We will remember the countless Canada Day parties, nights that turned into mornings, podiums, photoshoots, concerts, events and the one idea of being the crew from Manotick, Ontario.

During the transition, we will be giving shout outs to those whom have a helped out tremendously in evolving DU throughout the years. Without these creative and talented minds, DU wouldn’t be what it is today.

We wouldn’t be here without our supporters! We can’t thank you all enough.

We’re not saying good-bye for good, we’ll see you again in the future. Simply, see you later.

I threw a short video of our trip to Mt Hood, Oregon with our intended song.  We ended up going with something more upbeat, but I felt the need to have this footage edited to this specific song as we planned.

This time, last year.  The Better Days

Robyn Marie Shaw takes you behind the scenes of her preparation before her final school project for OCADU’s 100th GRAD EX.

In the summer of July 2014, I got the opportunity to work with Momentum Ski Camps on the Blackcomb glacier.  I was working alongside Graeme Meiklejohn filming and producing the weekly recap videos.  During this time I was learning the ins and outs of glacier life and skiing the best park Blackcomb has to offer.  It was a long month of filming, editing, skiing, drinking, partying, no sleeping and sun burning, but wouldn’t have traded it for anything else.  I have put together my hightlights from throughout the month into a short video for your enjoyment.

I want to thank John Smart, Graeme Meiklejohn, Colin Sutherland, James Roberts, Kevin McHugh, Anita Facundo, the diggers, all the pros and the rest of the Momentum Ski Camp staff for making it the best month/summer of my life!

Taking a step back from the past few videos, Carlo Mion now has the camera pointed on himself.  Moving to Whistler, Blackcomb in October 2013 put him in front some of the best terrain he’s ever skied.  These are some of the best clips he scored last season.

With some extra time on our hands we are sorting through and posting a lot of leftovers and extra footage from the past season.  Keep your eyes open for more of these short videos to come!

Brenden was on a complete slay last year and most of the time had a ton of extra footage that just couldn’t fit into our edits.  This is from one day in February at Blackcomb Park.


Getting you excited for this upcoming season, Alexi Godbout destroys Whistler, Blackcomb park in one day last spring!  The sun was booming and Alexi was ripping as usual, his unique style makes watching this one a breeze.
