What is your Hometown/ Home Mountain?

Bend, OR and Mt. Bachelor is my home mountain. 

What is your favorite Never Summer profile?

The Fusion Rocker Camber is my favorite profile. I loved the Ripsaw Profile for years and still prefer Ripsaw Profile when on resort days when it hasn't snowed for awhile. But, when NS set the Ripsaw Profile back and fused it with the floaty feel of the Original Rocker Camber, I personally think that's when they built the best board snowboarding has ever seen. Fusion Rocker Camber is the jam. 

What snowboard do you ride and what is your overall setup? 

Maverix 160. You can hold a deep carve on ice and groomers, then go pillow bashing all on the same board. The all mountain profile is extremely responsive under foot and allows for wuick edge to edge control while maintaining a fun laid back surfy feel. I spend 90% of my days in the backcountry, and love this board for its ability to ride variable conditions, not only good conditions. The new Shaper Series shapes look as sick as they ride. 

What is your favorite place to ride?

In the backcountry with the Never Summer Family. The laughs, the shredding, can't beat those days exploring new terrain on our snowmobiles and boards.
