Minnesota | Wakesurfer
  • My “Edge” sports would include mountain biking, skateboarding, Wakesurfing, and snowboarding.
  • Smoooooth Jazz just gets me in the mood to go boardin’! Not too smooth though. Just kidding, I’ll listen to just about anything though.
“I am just a dude from Minnesota that likes learning about the outdoors and boarding with good friends.”

What events do you attend?

In snowboarding, I compete in USASA in the upper Midwest region. I go to snowboard Nationals in Colorado each year. For Wakesurfing, I travel to various locations across the US. I have qualified for the World Series of Wakesurfing Championships the past 4 years. This past year, Worlds was in Florida. If I’m not competing I’m usually mountain biking or fishing. I like to tie flies and I fish from my SUP quite a bit.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I look up to a lot of people but some of my favorite snowboarders are Erik Leon, Mike Skiba, and Jesse Paul. They all just look comfortable on a snowboard and they are fun to watch. I definitely like smooth and styley riding. I think it shows up in my riding as well.

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

Yes. But I’ve also been part of some professional video shoots for Supreme Boats.

Do you play video games?

I’m not a huge gamer but I do have an original Xbox that my dad bought at a pawn shop.

Do you belong to any charities or non-profits, do volunteer work?

Our snowboard team, Foundation 7.25, is part of Action Sports Ministries which is a local non-profit that promotes boardsports programs for kids that are looking for an alternative to traditional sports. It’s a really great organization.

What are the top 5 brands you’d like to work with?

Volcom, Body Glove, Quicksilver, 686, Vans
