DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT BOARD: Hard to say. As above on the multiple choice, I like a mid-flexing positive camber snowboard that can rail a turn but still feels forgiving enough to hit side hips and do smaller spins in the park. I like a positive camber tail with no taper for slashing pow or accelerating into the next groomer turn. I need something that kicks back.

DESCRIBE YOUR CURRENT SETUP: My normal set-up is a positive camber Rome Agent 156. I also ride our Crossrocket a lot for powder because of the power in the tail.

BONUS QUESTIONS:

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE RIDER? Hard to say. Probably Gigi or Bjorn. Guys that can kill natural terrain with a strong freestyle perspective. I also like John Jackson’s riding a lot. Historically, Noah Salasnek for sure–Noah sits at the top of my list of early-era riders.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BRANDS? n/a
