I’ve been snowboarding since 1987, so I’m into my fourth decade. A lot has changed in that time, stances have gone from narrow to wide and back again, boots are actually comfortable and outerwear keeps you dry these days. Coming from skateboarding I was naturally into jibbing and freestyle in the early days but spending seasons in Chamonix soon turned my attention to freeriding. Getting hooked up by Quiksilver in 1997 gave me the opportunity to travel and so the search began for out of the way places to go snowboarding, from Greenland, India to Macedonia and Kyrgyzstan there have been some epic trips and not just because of the snowboarding. I’ve never really enjoyed competing but fell into competition snowboarding quite late in my career through the Freeride World Tour. Although a great experience travelling and competing with like-minded people I don’t miss shitting myself at the top of some gnarly mountain. After all this time snowboarding hasn’t changed for me, I still most look forward to shredding around with my friends on a powder day at home in Chamonix.
