Q & A

How did last season go, any highlights or low points?

No low points, just hard work trying to film a part for DejaVu with my 28 year old body.

Favorite or most memorable trip you have ever been on?

I would say Kazakhstan, while filming Find Snowboarding. Crazy is pretty much all I can say… just new and crazy. Good spots there though.

What’s your version of living the dream?

A house with a huge backyard, beer and a DIY skate park in the backyard. Add yy dogs and my lady Emilie and that’s Livin the Life Dream.

Worst bet you’ve ever lost?

I’ve never lost a bet.

What snowboarder have you always idolized?

All my friends… Louif, Frank, Will, Nic. These are my idols, best snowboarders in the world.

What do you think your spirit animal is?

A pit bull.

Snowboarding achievement you are most proud of?

Somehow I won Snowboarder Magazine Jibber Of The Year couples years ago...pretty stoked on that.

Would you rather?

Front board a double kink, backflip a road gap or hike for early season lines?

Front board a double kink.

Film a video part, compete in the contest circuit or free ride resorts all season?

Film a video part.

Get a sketchy leg tat, get your hair cut into a mullet or shave a moustache?

Leg tat all day.

Go cliff jumping, fishing or skateboarding?

Skateboarding for sure.

Shot-gun a beer, rip a shot of whiskey or sip champagne?

I'm shot-gunning a beer right now, not kidding.

Throw a nasty euro carve on fresh corduroy, unleash a “Perfect” method anytime or drop an untouched pillow line?

Method to 50-50 on a rail.

Start your own brand, work in the industry or retire to a cabin in the backcountry?

I already started my own brand; it's called CrapSack Skateboards, we’re going worldwide once we get money…soo, in a couples years.
