Northwave Boots and Drake Bindings are proud to announce its newest addition to the team, the “Red Headed Step Child, Brett Butcher. Butcher has been riding on the Northwave/Drake AM team for the last 3 years and his progress over time has landed him on this year’s Pro Team.

Growing up in Portland OR, Brett learned to ride on his back yard mountain, Mt. Hood Meadows. Butcher usually spends his summers giving back to the groms, coaching at Windell’s Snowboard Camp. During the winter he can be seen killing it on big mountain booters in the Tahoe area and all over the west coast. You can check out Brett’s skills in the new ThinkThank film, Patchwork Patterns.

With his talent and character, Brett makes a perfect fit for the team. He may be a red headed stepchild, but he’s proven to be a strong member of the Northwave/Drake family. Other sponsors include: Batalion, Ogio, Sessions, Smith, Nixon, Exit Real World, Atmosphere NW, Mt Hood Meadows, Skull Candy. The Northwave/ Drake team consists of: Hans Ahlund, Priscilla Levac, Patrick McCarthy, Matt Beardmore, Matty Ryan, Shayne Pospisil, Michael Goldschmidt, Jeff Pepperdine, Chanelle Sladics and now, welcome, Brett Butcher.
