Q & A
Last season was great. I traveled to some amazing place; from filming pow in Japan to riding in the Olympics in Russia. It was my best season so far with how all the contest went and I stayed healthy while snowboarding a whole bunch… I’m having a blast!Favorite or most memorable trip you have ever been on?
I would have to say my trip to Russia this year for the Olympics. I got on the podium and there was so much that happened before and after.What’s your version of living the dream?
I would say living on the beach with a sweet surf break with good friends and good parties during the summer. Traveling around the world Snowboarding on rad mountains with sick parks and powder all winter. Then I guess after a while get a nice family and live in neighborhood surrounded by my friends, with mountains and ocean nearby.Worst bet you’ve ever lost?
I don't think I have really lost any really bad bets. I guess I have to get gnarlier, so I can have something better to write down here.What snowboarder have you always idolized?
