Monument Snowboards is pleased to announce Mike Casanova as the newest addition to the MNMNT Snowboards Youth Crew. ‘Nova is a super talented rider that will bring some experience to the young and hungry line-up that’s already in place. Growing up a Midwest ripper who is now holding it down at Breck and Keystone; Mike will be riding the 2010/ 2011 Monument Snowboards BlackBlack deck.
“Mike is an amazing person with more focus than anybody that I know. He has a heart bigger than an elephant and more talent than most people would know what to do with. I think he is a great fit for Monument snowboards and joins an already stacked team. Monument can finally give Mike the creative freedom and support that he needs to show the world of snowboarding what he can do. Oh, and he’s not a bad student driver either.”
-MNMNT Team Manager Connor Stohlgren
Casanova is excited about joining the team and being part of a small rider driven company. He is stoked on the opportunity saying that "..being involved with a tight knit crew where it's direct friends making it happen. Not feeling like a number, but someone appreciated. Also, the involvement in the creative side of the company, whether that be graphics, softness, etc.." is a big part of why he joined the Youth Crew.
