Live from the TransWorld SNOWboarding HQ, in Carlsbad, CA, it’s episode 17 of Eddie’s Wall, with special guest, and Oregonian, Josh Dirksen. Dirksen turned pro in 96, so with a 20 year long professional career in snowboarding, he’s learned a few things along the way. He’s got some helpful hints on keeping gear dry while backcountry camping, talks the art of the perfect turn, reminisces on the days of Robot Food, and gives the low-down on his signature event, the Dirksen Derby. Enjoy this talk with wind-lip master Josh Dirksen and Eddie Wall, and check Josh’s outstanding part in Insight.
