Professional snowboarders Danny Davis, John Jackson and Mark Sollors are featured in a fashion pictorial in Playboy’s March issue (on newsstands now).
The Burton Team freestylers model looks from Hugo Boss, Bottega Veneta, Surface to Air, Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange, Acne and Burton, all amidst the backdrop of the beautiful mountains of Vail.
Playboy also caught up with the guys to talk snowboarding. Following are quotes from the interview:
John Jackson on professional snowboarding: “The tricks now have extra spins and flips, the jumps and rails are bigger and the consequences are much heavier. At this point, we’re at the edge of what’s humanly possible.”
Mark Sollors on snowboarding style: “Fashion and style have always been part of snowboarding. It’s a way for people to express themselves and sometimes even stand out. But it’s really about comfort – when you feel good, you look good.”
Mark Sollors on the best perks of being a professional snowboarder: “Traveling for free and experiencing things I never imagined. The fun answer I’ll keep to myself.”
