Words: Evan LeFebvre
I first met Alex Cantin, a.k.a. Mr. Carter last summer up at the Camp of Champs in Whistler, BC. We had a good time hangin’ whether it was up on the glacier, lounging at the lake, making mistakes at Garf’s, or getting loose at “The Boys” house. Alex is a good homey and a ripping snowboarder. I was recently lucky enough to get a sneak peak at some stuff for the soon to be released Videograss movie, and plainly put Alex’s shit is looking tight; he had a good year. Be sure to check it out when it drops this fall, and look out for a cameo from the Go Listed “Mon Carter” in the upcoming Skeleton Crew video—that is if those guys get their shit together and actually make that thing.
