What’s your best story from Japan this year?
I had a really fun day with Yosh Mike Yoshida, Wizard Alex Sherman, Derrek Lever, Scott, Colton, Louif Paradis, and Jake Durham. I had some Sour Patch Kids with me that were a bit special and we all ate them on a medium-ish pow day and somehow got kicked out of the resort for snowboarding! For me, it was a highlight of my season.
When you’re watching snowboard videos, what do you personally look for in a good part?
Style, trick selection and music. Sometimes people are so fucking good but they just do tricks that are kinda lame or that you see way too much. It’s not really their fault and I don’t blame them because filming snowboarding is hard, but if you’re channeling rollerblading into snowboarding, it’s just really obvious and it looks like shit to me. At the same time, anything can be done cool.
What are your three favorite activities besides snowboarding?
Skateboarding, spending time with family and eating good food.
You and Blum in a cage match, one man comes out alive. Who is it and why?
I would probably win a wrestling match. I’m pretty sure we’ve had some roommate squabbles when we lived together in Mammoth and even though he might have more experience “fighting,” I have a few pounds on him so I could get him in some sort of hold and keep him there.
Whose part are you most looking forward to seeing in Resolution and why?
I don’t know.
Ultimately, what did you want to get out of this video part?
I don’t like to think like that. I just like snowboarding, hanging with friends, and traveling. I was hoping to go on some trips with Jake Blauvelt, Mikey Rencz, and Mikkel Bang in the backcountry but it didn’t happen this season, so what can you do?
