What is your first memory of the SIMS brand? No specific image just always an awesome SIMS back cover in Snowboarder Magazine. Also the SIMS Switchblade was my older brother’s first board and as he was my biggest influence, obviously what his first snowboard was sticks in my mind.

You had a pretty epic showing at Superpark this past season, tell us about that experience? It was amazing and definitely an honor getting the Super Park standout. I just went into it with the plan to charge from start to finish every day.
As a coach at HCSC what is the one thing about snowboarding you think is most important to teach the young little rippers? I think confidence in your riding and commitment are the two things I really push on all my campers.
