Injuries are apart of snowboarding unfortunately, what has been your worse slam?
Trees and powder are a good mix for 2 broken femurs, luckily not at the same time though. Trees, yeah they don't move, you move around them.
Why do you ride for Yuki?
Because I love being outdoors amongst our environment and it is vital that we do everything we can to protect it. This was a huge reason why I was so excited to represent a brand that is giving back to our ecosystem and trying their hardest to support a healthy environment. It is an added bonus that the gear looks and feels amazing as well.
Any Advice for up and commers getting after it?
Ride on the days when the conditions are terrible, when the visibility is scarce and it's basically boardline blizzard conditions outside, these are the days when you will grow as a rider. Keeping moving forward, and don't look back.
