Justin’s style and skills are unique--he may just be Utah’s next snowboard prodigy. Will he blow up then burn out overnight like a number of gifted underachievers before him? Time will tell, but he’s off to a serious start. At just sixteen, this kid has his shit together--let’s hope he keeps it that way--C.D.

Justin grew up a couple doors down from me, and I always knew there was something special about him. Bjorn and I gave him one of our old snowboards--he must have put it to good use! I finally saw him ride this year and couldn’t believe how smooth he is. Justin’s style is super strong and controlled, like a young Marc Frank.”--Erik Leines


Dozens of shreds threw back lips down this Park City rail--but Bennee settled it. He’s also put together a part in Finger On Da Trigger’s Livin’ Proof--only filming after school and on weekends.
