The TransWorld SNOWboarding crew took the show on the road this week for episode six of Eddie’s Wall. On our way to Mt. Hood for the Drink Water Rat Race, we decided to stop in and visit one of the original members of the Forum 8 and creator of the award winning Heart Coffee Roasters in Portland, OR, Wille Yli-Luoma. Coming up in a much different time in snowboarding’s history, Wille seems to have seen and done it all. Wille sat down with Eddie to recount some crazy travel stories, his career decision to leave Forum for K2, his transition from snowboarding into coffee roasting, and much more. Watch the full episode here, and if you’re pressed for time, don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
