Are you happy with the amount of footage that you’re sitting on?
I think I am considering the way the season went. I didn’t stress or took it too seriously but I still tried to get stuff every time I was riding.
Who was your main crew this winter?
I hopped around between crews, but my main Resolution crew was Harrison Gordon, Grenier and François.
What’s the best or craziest example of Frank “Franking” someone at a spot?
This winter, we were in a village for a week and the first spot we hit there, a cop rolls up to see what we’re doing, so Frank goes and talks to him. Next thing you know, it’s his old buddy from high school or something, and he’s a snowboarder himself. So for the rest of our stay there, if someone was to call the cops, that guy would just show up and talk to the person and give us some more time. Another time, at that wallride to lipslide spot, we knew that spot was becoming a bust, so we went and got it ready on a Saturday night (it’s a school) and the cops show up asking what we’re doing, saying the Principal of the school complained. So Frank asked the police if he could speak with the principal. The police called the principal back, Frank “Franked” him and we got permission to keep going.
Tell us the story of being stabbed in the chest.
We were riding this line in some back alley. I think Harrison should have a clip in his part from it. I was just waiting for my turn to film, lapping it and trying to figure it out before Colton Morgan was gonna follow me with the camera. And I was jamming up a big wood pole to backside 180 and landing on an angled fence. One time, my board slipped out on the outside. I landed on my butt on the pole and flipped backwards and taco’d the fence. Some sketchy rusty T-post stabbed me through all my layers in the armpit. I wasn’t sure I only had a scratch or what so I lifted up my first layer and there was a decent sized hole there! Frank drove me to the hospital and couple hours later I got stitches.
