World Snowboard Shop, Version
Stance: Goofy, 22.5 inches wide, set one inch back, with 21 degrees on the front foot and negative-six on the back.
Board: I ride the Salomon ERA 163 because it likes to do pow turns and it has a big ol’ tail for going backward.
Boots: DC Rogue boots with the BOA system. I like stiff boots so my ankles don’t break off.
Bindings: Salomon SPX Pro.
Worst trend: Dull edges--a little good, but mostly bad.
Superstitions: I don’t ever call last run.
Riding style: Wacky.
Quote: “I ride to see Parker do backside rodeo 1080s.”
