A few years ago I was introduced to James Nicol and Ryan Holmes, the founders of a local snowboard and ski manufacturer in Bend, OR. SnoPlanks are made almost entirely of bamboo and are surf inspired in form as well as function. James and Ryan, being the awesome guys that they are, allowed me to represent their brand as a team rider which eventually turned into a job at the company as a board builder.
Recently I have been focusing on building, testing, and improving the boards that I help build and getting creative with new board shapes. In the future I look forward to building out my van to go explore new zones, and surfing this summer!
