Another reason Red is rad.

The article reminds me of all the folks over the years, like friend’s parents or friends of my parents, who have commented on how stoked I must be about another Shaun White win. But he doesn’t represent us… he builds million dollar private halfpipes. Red builds a rope tow park in his backyard and brings it to his local mountain for free.  One of many reasons 😋

No competing pro athlete represents the average park/pow-head. Those (most at least) people train, have special diets, have coaches, went to special schools, etc etc. This as jock as it gets. And its fine if that is what you want. And is also fine to pocket the money or give back to whoever you wish if you want. Its just that all this isn't the side of snowboarding i like.

I totally agree, I just mean he himself is an actual snowboarder. Regardless of exactly what he chooses to do (competing, etc), he’s one of us, whereas Shaun is not, that’s all I meant.

I think Tim Eddy best represents my view & love for snowboarding.

On the evening of December 25, 2019, snowboarding lost one of the most colorful, charismatic, creative, talented, and authentic individuals to ever strap in and send it. The joy of the holidays has suddenly been juxtaposed with sadness with the news that Jaeger Bailey took his own life in Mammoth Lakes, California on Christmas Day. Seemingly from the moment his 2011 season edit dropped, Jaeger’s viral-ready trick regimen made his timelines required viewing for anyone looking to be dumbfounded, inspired, and entertained. Accomplishing Never Been Done’s was no big deal for Bailey, as he had an uncommon ability to flip on command, maintain board control while unstrapped, and handle kinks with confidence. While he competed in the X Games, both in Real Snow and in person, won rail jams like Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails, earned SNOWBOARDER’s Rookie of the Year award in 2013, and was featured in numerous films including The SNOWBOARDER Movie: Foreword and Think Thank’s Brain Dead Heart Attack, Jaeger is mostly remembered by the snowboarding masses for his endless stream of WTF moments, including but not limited to the Christ Air backflip, closeout hang-up frontflip, 540 erection plant, double-backie-to-knuckle-to-nollie-frontflip-out, and many, many, many more. Ultimately, Jaeger’s legacy in snowboarding looms larger than his 5’2” height, but for those who knew him personally, his good nature, wide smile and fearless style will be what we miss the most.”-Pat Bridges

From Instagram looks like Nate Bozung is riding a Hometown Hero with Step-Ons.

I wish him no ill will, but Bozung is a waste of a human.
