Yes! I love that I can still rock the baggie look with functionality.

Personally, last season I got to work a bit with organizations like Hoods to Woods and they really changed my perspective on snowboarding. Not everyone has had the opportunities that I have, but everyone deserves the chance to excel at what they love. The people I have gotten to work with have shown me that we need to make this industry more accessible and I would like to work to change that.
Who are the people in snowboarding right now that keep you motivated and hyped on the current state of snowboarding community and/or direction?
