3 words that describe Winterstick in your view?
What’s your favorite board in the Winterstick line?
The round tail 58 is my fav in the lineup, carved like a dream, fun in the pow.
Why did you build the boards you made? How does it feel to build a custom board? Inspiration behind it?
The Space Case 153 was an idea I had for around 6 years now. A true twin fun jibby board that would still slay in the trees and pow. The nose and tail profile make it super easy to ride both ways and the core profile was even all the way threw making chunder and rough trails fun. Blowing through powder bumps in the trees, laying down turns and catching air in the park it loves it all. All wooden construction with an elm topsheet makes it feel good under feet as well as look awesome. It was an honor to be able to build my own board it feels like a dream, taking that idea of a snowboard that was so unique to what I wanted and turning it into reality. After it was done and the first storm hit it was so worth the work to get here.
