We’ve been lucky to look on from the sidelines as Red Gerard has made the ascent into snowboarding’s ranks over the past few years. Summers in Hood, winters in Colorado, and a cadre of older brothers who have made turns with Red from the beginning have helped to groom this grom into one of the most talked about up and comers (and also one of the most polite individuals you will come across). Red is one of the only riders who has had the distinction of riding at all three SNOWBOARDER Magazine events, The Launch, Superpark, and Ms. Superpark, the latter where he was a forerunner on the jumps. With each appearance, Red has further cemented his rising star.
