Ed: I blew it on posting this one in a timely fashion. Hell, most of these have probably already been broken by now, but whatever.
Friends, your New Year’s resolution should be to shred more. In case you forsake those words here are some of our favorite snowboarders and their wonderful tips for another fantastic trip around the sun. Let’s hope it’s a snowy one.
Zander Blackmon – Probably snowboard and laugh everyday.
Kevin Backstrom – I don’t really have any but lets send it. Snowboard harder than last year, party harder than last year. Stay out of newspaper trouble, or if i do any trouble I’m gonna do it secret agent style.
I need to take better care of my money. I suck at that. That’s pretty much it. Stay healthy, of course!
Have a great New Year’s!
Brendan Gerard – Get blunted and stay trill.
Red Gerard – Spend more time in the backcountry, grow an inch, get that first kiss and last but not least, get my grade 10.
Chas Guldemond – My new year’s resolution is to spend less time away from home. I need a lot of luck in trying to.
Bryan Iguchi – No idea, but I’m sure I’ll find it tonight just before midnight after a bunch of drinks.
Nima Jalali – Wear baggier pants.
Denis Leontyev – I really want to start speaking English better next year, so that people see the real me when I’m traveling and meeting new people.
