Blake Geis likes to play it tough and board tougher, but deep down, he’s a chill and genuine Oregon-bred homey with a work ethic that’s second to none. He can talk shit with the best of em, slam with the best of em, and definitely holds his own on the gnarliest of spots. Thanks to his tenacity, you’re less likely to get stuck in a rut at summer camp and this season, he’s sharing a Dinosaurs Will Die promodel snowboard wth all his closest digger homeys. With the recent release of his latest punk rawk part, we tapped into his wit for your entertainment.

Hate: when the wind fucks us and strips all the moisture out of the snow
Love: When you hit terminal velocity. Best feeling ever.
Hate: When you catch your edge trying to stop before the cat track

Snowboarding in the streetz

Living with your mom
