Ingemar Backman

Ingemar Backman makes a rare media appearance to talk about his life in snowboarding. He's now running a resort in Sweden with his friends Johan and Jacob. It was a great honour to talk with one of snowboading's true legends.

Sean Kearns

What can I say about my experience spending the day with Sean Kearns that could possibly portray the depth of experience that I had? I left his house with two and a half hours of audio, a 163 Santa Cruz Sean Kearns NOS snowboard, a head full of high minded ideas, and a smile so big I'm still wearing it 30 hours later. This show is our in-studio conversation in it's entirety (at Sean's insistence as he won't be edited...)

DCP

David Carrier-Porcheron is a Canadian snowboarding icon. He was a competitive halfpipe rider for Burton from the late 90's until 2002 when he dedicated himself to filming in the backcountry. He still rips and is an owner in YES. a progressive snowboard brand run by snowboarders. I recorded with DCP in his home in Squamish BC.

Chad Otterstrom

Chad Otterstrom pushed the progression of freestyle snowboarding in the late 90's and 2000's. Originally from Minnesota, Chad's been in Colorado for 22 years and still tries to ride every day of the winter! Do yourself a favour and watch his video parts on youtube.

Mark Gallup

Where would snowboarding be without photographers and filmers documenting the progression of the 90's? Not here. This week's guest, Mark Gallup, was the first senior photographer for Transworld Snow. He also was a close friend of Craig Kelly so get ready for some serious Craig talk.
