TWS: How did you get your hair so red and crazy?
Haha, actually I was born like that-it turned kind of red when I was around ten … okay, it’s not a sickness!
What was the heaviest thing you saw go down this season?
When Torstein (Horgmo), my DC homey, broke his back at the European Open- he’s coming back, though!
We saw you come close as hell to a 1440 at the Vail Session. How dizzy does a trick like that make you?
A lot! The Web site says that it was a Cab, but it was switch backside. There were a lot of 180s in that one anyway, haha-close but no cigar.
If you could have any sponsors outside of snowboarding, who would they be?
Actually, I’ve got a poker sponsor. I’m playing some poker when I’m not riding.
What would you do with a million dollars U.S.?
Invest a lot! Sounds weird I know. Maybe just buy a cool boat and a car, and then invest the rest-go for a trip with a lot of people … party!
