Whats are your thoughts on the snowboards scene these days: Shit is going insane right now! Doublecorks everywhere you look and rail riding is at a higher level than ever. I think its all sick, but because everyone can do such crazy shit, i'm personally stoked on people that film legit video parts with good style! I defenitely respect contest riders, but its all about doing shit proper. Just like the way i roll up.
Anything else: I was born and raised in the Bay Area in California, but have spent time living in both Colorado and Utah. I like to have good time all the time, but I still never leave my house or do anything. In the winter i try to spend as much time as possible traveling and filming. I mostly like to hit street rails, but would like to get in the backcountry more and get in as many avalanches as possible. This next season i hope to travel with all my homies and go to some radically hellacious places like minnesota,tahoe, montana, maybe washington. Its gonna be an awesome year, and I hope to progress my snowboarding a lot!
