Pat Moore has influenced product since 2008, when his first Forum Destroyer hit the market. At this point, the pieces the buzzard has a hand in designing span from head to toe, and there's a theme that runs through it all. Each is built with traditional sensibility, intended to last. While most modern snowboards employ some form of hybrid profile, Pat's has regular-ass camber with radial sidecut. His jacket sports a simple aesthetic and enough waterproofing for BC. Boots are one thing no one needs a quiver of, and as one among a handful of pros who can ride the street and backcountry with equivalent acuity, Pat created a boot with laces and a rugged sole that can do both. The following represent the choices of someone who's able to not only ride whatever product he wants, but also play a role in its design.
