How did you get started?
Caught the snowboard bug as a teenager and then ordered an alpha 112 off the web. I was lucky to live close by Freebord Mfg. and got some support from Tim Seward, Steen, etc.
How long have you been riding?
Best Freebord Memory:
I always forget them then someone says, “Hey remember the time…” probably my trip to Europe.
Freebord 85, trucks tight with back tighter and low rocker with back lower.
