Eddie rips, and even his dad rips. So that must mean that Eddie was born to rip, and maybe you were born to read little shorts on the internet about rippers like Eddie. Or maybe you rip too? Either way, rip on rippers, and check out Edwardo this fall in the new Forum movie aptly titled, Forum Or Against ‘Em. We previewed it at The Program last week—oh it’s good. Check out the newly revamped www.forumsnowboards.com for premiere dates and other amazing things.

Best moment on a snowboard: Everyday that I’m able to ride. In the early days riding picnic tables behind Mammoth before they were open with Kevin Jones. Winning the Red Bull Rail Storm in London was pretty fucking insane too though.
