TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders' Poll 16 Men’s Rider Of The Year, Video Part Of The Year
It's been a long time coming, but Bode finally snagged our coveted Rider Of The Year and Video Part Of The Year awards in 2015. "It was the greatest accomplishment of my short life, but just like landing a trick that you've been trying forever, the high only lasts so long," Bode says. "I still want more out of snowboarding." Of all his gear, he says his board is the thing that takes the worst beatings while filming. "I'm a big guy and I tend to have bad luck when I ragdoll, especially in the streets."
