Priv- How've you been man?
GS- Yo dude, Ive been good thanks.
Priv- So where are you from?
GS- Hayden, Idaho
Priv- Looks like that collar bone musta healed up nicely eh?
GS- The collar bone is ready to roll! its been feeling real nice since late March I'd say.
Priv- Did you just decide to double cork at that setup or have you been dialing em in all season?
GS- I just decided to throw it there. It was the perfect jump for it and there was a fairly good session going on so I just went for it. It worked out. It got the blood flowing and the heart pumping thats for sure. hah.
Priv- Haha heck yeah dude! So how was your winter?
GS- My winter was overall awesome. But there were a few issues that made it a little challenging compared to other winters. #1 I broke my collarbone which put me out for a good part of the season and #2 the lack of snowfall in Tahoe. But I cant complain! Once I was healed some really good opportunities fell in front of me and the spring brought a little snow. So made the best with what I had going! One of the best things this winter was living in our house in Truckee called the Hotel De Schneebs. It was a house that was full of friends and games all winter. My brother Corey and 3 best friends Shane, Ben, and Shane Deebs all lived there too. Oh and cant forget Durell who posted up for awhile also.. Out of all the memories made this winter the ones at the Hotel were some of the best haha.
Priv- What are your summer plans?
GS- For this summer I will be working back home In Idaho. Enjoying some summer Idaho living. Its good stuff. I for sure plan on making a few MT Hood trips this summer to go say hi to everyone and ride the parks a bit. Excited for that!
Priv- So what inspires your shred sticking?
GS- I get my inspiration from one word. FUN. Its what I love to do! And I feel thats why I go out and chase it as much as I can. I look at snowboarding now, and I realize I have the same amount of fun as when I was 11 years old snowboarding. From the the friends you make to the wild traveling adventures and places you see its a FUN gig.
