Checking In: Midwest Rome Rep Rich Whinnie


Words: MichiganBoarder.com

Where are you from originally?

Originally from Indian River, MI. I grew up riding Nub’s Nob, my favorite Michigan resort!

Years Riding?

14…I have a team rider that just turned 13 and he’s way better than me… jeesh.

Setup?

Seems to change every year, but right now I’m riding a 150 Mod Rocker, 390 Boss bindings with 3.5 degree cant pads, Libertine boots, Rhythm Outerwear, and Ashbury Goggles. I love this setup! It allows me to ride both park and charge every part of the hill. Should I get all early 2000′s SnowboarderMag and tell you my stance?? Ok here it is – Goofy, 20.5 inches, 9º x -9º

Home Resort?

Currently I live in Grand Rapids, MI so Cannonsburg is the place to be! Nub’s Nob will always be my second home though.

Your companies?

The companies I rep are Rome SDS and Rhythm Outerwear.

Favorite Michigan spots?

There are a lot of good handrails and spots scattered all over Michigan that are fun. Resort riding is always a good time with the crew. Really my favorite place to ride is wherever my friends are.
