Why do I snowboard?
For me, snowboarding takes me to a heightened level mentally and physically. I feel challenged and excited every time I buckle in.

2nd at 1999 US Open Big Air 1st at 2003 Grand Prix Big Air Film parts in "DFS Films", and "At Once Films."

Who do I like to ride with?
Cooper, Sheehan, Hindman, Curtis, Jed, Levine, Jodie, Huntsaker, Thornburg, Jordan, Chase, Shaw, Tasselhoff.

From an outsider's point of view, Tom has one of the best attitudes in snowboarding, and I haven't met too many people with the level of enthusiasm Tom takes to snowboarding.
