Well i am close to hitting 30 years old. I have had a good life as a pro snowboarder but never hit the top. Have been close at times but blame it on what you will. Lack of funding, no real coaching program like many other national teams have.
But a few years away gave me an urge to get back and push for myself. Not for any brand, sponsor or ranking. Just for satisfying my own personal need.
I know im not the first person to do a double but its not something to be taken lightly. Its scary shit!
So have a look and make of it what you will.
Thanks to Big Nick Atkins, Hamish (coach) McShite, and to Xavier from Head for getting me there and helping me get it done.
