What was the very first snowboard video you watched that got you hooked?
I can't remember the first video I ever watched but one that pops up in my head is JP Solbergs part from Transcendence in 2002 I believe. I was about 8 years old and watched that movie over and over again!
What was it that made you like that video so much?
I've always loved his style of riding and the bunny suit he wears through most of his part was pretty entertaining, especially for an 8 year old!
How does that video still inspire you today?
Transcendence and the riders in that movie still inspire me today because it was all about style and how good you could make tricks look without going upside down a thousand times. Riders like Gigi, Romain deMarchi, Wolle Nyvelt all showed that style, above everything else, is gold.
What activities are you in to other than Snowboarding?
I spend a lot of time surfing whenever I can, it's the only thing I can really do that relates to snowboarding. I've tried to skate but I just end up in pain someway or another!
Do those activities translate or influence your Snowboarding in anyway?
The fluidity and power that you see when watching surfers is definitely something that I think influences my riding. Working the board and enjoying the ride is what it's all about.
Who are you calling when there is 2 ft of fresh at your home resort?
Plans or Goals for the 2016 season?
2016 is going to see me continuing on the competition circuit, but would love to spend some time filming and just finding new places to ride. I like to try new things and do something different every season.
