When you see Mike Skiba dropping in with his lenses ablaze, don’t think the thick frames signify any timidity or lack of coordination. After all, Clark Kent wore glasses—and that dude could shoot laser beams out of his eyes. And in a game of snow with Skiba v Superman, our bets are on Mike. The kid is seriously talented and he has been masterfully shaped by that revered mentor of Midwest snowboarding: the Trollhaugen towrope. With this new heavy addition to their roster, The Interior Plain Project has a trick-stomping, jaw-dropping machine under their aegis. Congrats, Mike!
