Terry Kidwell

When talking about the ‘Fathers of Snowboarding’ it’s important to talk about Terry Kidwell. Terry is know to be the ‘Father of Freestyle’ snowboarding, which we guess, unless you’re all racers, is the type of snowboarding that you all participate in. He’s the first guy to do a McTwist on a snowboard. Without Terry we could all be wearing spandex and going through gates. And that doesn’t sound too awesome.
