So, for our new weekly-ish column, we’ve caught up with some of the most relevant riders in the biz to share some of their favorite, and not-so-favorite, things about snowboard culture.

    I agree with her Utah comment, I hate everyone that moved here to SLC too… I’ve met people I like that aren’t from Utah, but for the most part they can all fuck themselves haha.

    I tried the blueberry mint. I wouldn’t necessarily say I loved it, but I also wouldn’t necessarily say I hated it. Actually blueberry mint is a fucking awesome flavor combo, and i wish it would appear more besides just in kombucha and vape juice (?)
