Stance: Goofy, 22.5 inches wide, set one inch back, with 21 degrees on the front foot and negative-six on the back.

Board: I ride the Salomon ERA 163 because it likes to do pow turns and it has a big ol’ tail for going backward.

Boots: DC Rogue boots with the BOA system. I like stiff boots so my ankles don’t break off.

Bindings: Salomon SPX Pro.

Worst trend: Dull edges—a little good, but mostly bad.

Superstitions: I don’t ever call last run.

Riding style: Wacky.

Quote: “I ride to see Parker do backside rodeo 1080s.”
