“The one snowboarder who wins all the competitions-Shaun Palmer. My son and I watch him on TV. He talks shit, but backs it up. He’s the most talented, best I’ve ever seen.” Tim Adelman, Buena Park, California (A32)
“Peter Line. I saw him at the X-Games and he amazed me-the tricks he tries. He’s consistent and he just doesn’t care either. He just goes out.” Veero Derkarabetian, Southern California (A31)
“Probably my friend Blake Gleason, who’s just the most incredible snowboarder I’ve ever seen. But I haven’t seen that many.” Lesley Townsend, Fort Worth, Texas (A33)
“Ryan Neff-he taught me how to snowboard. Before that I didn’t know how to ski or anything. This was just last year.” Freddy Riceputo, Florida (pictured with son Joey and wife Valerie) (A34)
