The 50-60 degree spine wall you hit in your segment of Deeper was so insane-What do you do to calm yourself down and focus before dropping in?
I take some very deep breaths, and usually I'm so nervous that I talk to myself, to sort of get my stoke up.
If you won a free heli trip for 2 anywhere in the world-Where would you go and who would you take with you?
I would go to AK specifically Haines. Or if it was "anywhere" the Fairweather range in southeastern Alaska. I would bring my buddy Chris Galvin that I shred with at Squaw. He stokes me up more than anybody on a snowboard. It would be rad to show him the mountains I grew up in and throw down on some nasty spine walls!
You grew up on a commercial fishing boat and now captain your own boat-What keeps you motivated to transition from grueling winters to grueling summers?
I don't really consider the winters to be grueling. I live to ride, I just feel very fortunate to have such a rad job in the summer time that I can take the winters off to pursue my true passion.
