If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you go? Switzerland in February. Largest mountains I’ve ever seen in my life, endless terrain.
Favorite Terrain: Parks, natural kickers, cliffs, anything powder.
First Time: At a golf course on a 140 elite Burton, riding down a little bank down the tee off.
Is snowboarding ready for the Olympics? I think it will help the growth of the sport, but I expect it will not be very accurate as far as freestyle is concerned. At least slalom & GS will be easy to judge.
If you didn’t snowboard what would you be doing right now? Most likely married, living somewhere in the mid-west, a lifetime college student.
What do you do when you’re not snowboarding? Skateboard, surf, spear fish, design clothes and graphics, try and meet girls.
Who most influences your style? My friends and people I get to ride with when I go on trips, like Brian Thien, J.P. Walker, Jeremy Jones, Devun Walsh, Jason Murphy, Peter Line.
Who do you ride with the most? Same as above.
If you were going on a trip and could only take five things with you (other than a change of clothes and your snowboard) what would those things be? CD player, skateboard, surfboard, money, and a girl.
