Luckily enough on a trip for Brian Greens birthday a while back I sneaked down to Mexico with him and the gang for a 30th birthday party.  So when we had to find a spot for a few nights near California for the family, I knew just the place, K38 down in Baja, Mexico. WhereRead more

Back on Snow

So working backwards I figured out that this year is my 20th season snowboarding. Some how may first day was a race day.  But turns out I love racing these days. Also love to see when friends are able to leave an imprint on Snowboarding such as these Dragon goggles from Schoph. Bryan Fox, anotherRead more

Optimism for Snowboarding

This past weekend, we were in Bend, riding Mt Bachelor for the 10th annual Dirksen Derby.  A hand dug course with the tightest turns imaginable, a few icy spots and a good few hundred of the great and the good snowboarders from current heroes like Austin Smith, Louif Paradis, legends like Scotty Whitlake to theRead more

Twenty Two – Hamish Duncan

Back in the day I used to live religiously by snowboard magazines.  Every month making the trip to the shops to pick up Snowboard UK, Whitelines & Onboard.  Essentially 3 monthly bibles which shaped everything around my life at that point.  Which tricks were going down, which riders are coming through, places to go, peopleRead more
