Previously unseen footage, gathered in a dark basement somewhere in the Freetown-Fall River State Forest, Massachusetts… The Freetown State Forest sits smack dab in the “Bridgewater Triangle,” an area in southeastern Massachusetts swarming with paranormal activity—roaming specters, UFO encounters, and even Bigfoot sightings. Some believe that the forest’s haunted history dates back to colonial times, when settlers purchased the land (sacred burial grounds included) from the Wampanoag Tribe. The transaction is said to have cursed the area, which has since been the site of satanic cult rituals and murders in the 1970s and 80s, as well as comparatively innocuous poltergeist and fireball sightings more recently…

Today, we have chosen to release this disturbing footage gathered by one of our own, who barely managed to escape with his life intact. His findings were both beautiful and unsettling. Possibly unwatchable for some… Have you left the lights on? Good. You will need them.

We hope this Halloween season finds you safe and healthy, dear friends. Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, mostly in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.

This day marked the end of summer, the harvest, and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort during the long, dark winter.

This winter, should you find yourself feeling rather spooky and otherworldly, perhaps the graphics for the new Pyre will strike a chord with you. Inspired by occultist naturism, animism, supernatural and strange phenomena, the 2022/23 Niche Pyre snowboard is a celebration of divination and occultism in relation to nature itself.
