Coming soon: Industry Profiles 2011

11 May, 2011

The world of snowboarding has many names, faces, talents and ideas.  These people aren’t the poster child of snowboarding, they aren’t making millions but they are the people behind the curtain making snowboarding fun.  Somehow we’ve all been drawn to snowboarding, we’ve taken different routes to find our dreams and have ended up working in the snowboard industry.  Each summer the Industry Profile Interviews take over to give a glimpse into the jobs, people and experience it takes to work in the snowboard industry.

Starting in June, the series will continue on for 2011 and every Tuesday and Thursday you’ll find a new interview on  There are people in every type of job, from every type of background who help contribute to the snowboard industry.  If you know of someone in snowboarding who you think would be great to interview, leave a comment or email me

Here are the 2010 Industry Profiles in case you missed them…

    Any chance you could interview someone from TGR? I’d like to learn more about how they take their movies on the road and make $$ from them.

    Martin, I got two rad people from TGR last year, Founder Todd Jones and Pro skier Dash Longe. Maybe a different type of interview is needed for TGR 🙂 Thanks for the Cedar recommendation, if you have his email send it my way.

    Phil, awesome to hear!
