I won the Mallay day 2010 biggest method contest on a split board. Josh was one of best natural freestylers this world will ever see! I would love to have seen the creativity he would have brought to the backcountry. RIP Josh! Destroy

Haha, wish I had some footage or pics. After spending several seasons riding Breck's park regularly way back when, moving to Tahoe with shitty parks and more featured terrain with good snow just lined up perfectly for bringing freestyle to natural features. But the past couple dry winters, coupled with improved parks, had me getting back into some park riding. Pointing it at a large booter is still a huge rush, and helps build good air awareness that translates to other parts of the mountain, I just gotta remember that I weigh twice as much as most of the young jibbers and I'm not gonna land on the tranny if I hit it with the same speed they do.
