Pat's a typical redhead: Intense, super-focused, and a little crazy. He's also from New Hampshire, the "live free or die" state. These two factors plus overdoses of snowboarding combine to create a strange beast whose red beard, tattoos, and taste in music are almost as frightening as his arsenal of video hammers. With a proven ability to stomp big, backcountry airs, bone-splintering street gaps and everything in between, Pat Moore has firmly established himself as one of snowboarding's best.
Iikka's premature display of snowboard skill allowed him to escape the icy, mini-mountains of his native Finland at a rather young age. Hungry for travel and adventure, he began a decade-long ascent from crazy, park-riding party grom to becoming one of the world's most-respected backcountry video pros. Summers in SoCal and winters in Whistler allow Iikka to balance out his passions skating and surfing with his ongoing quest to spend as much time riding powder as humanly possible.

With influences ranging from hip-hop to skateboarding to the OG Whistler pros, Mikey is his own man with his own plan, and fun is priority one.

However, there is one thing that sets Wallace apart, he is the youngest athlete to ever win an X Games medal. Just at 16 years old and only three professional touring seasons under his belt, Torin already has mastered the art of freeride park skiing, becoming an almost overnight sensation.

He has travelled to places near and far to capture the most unpredictable filmography we've seen. P White proved he could hold his own when he jumped the infamous transfer gap switch and did a zero spin in Sun Valley, Idaho. This 110-foot jump landed Parker on the cover of the 2010 film, "Eye Trip" (L1P.) We believe this is just the beginning for Parker White.
