Dogggg and I were supposed to get a dual interview in that awesome mag ALLUS, but it didn't run cause were too old, so here ya go...
Tindy, not even scared!!!
So growing up in the sweet state of Minnesota in the early 90's
no one really knew about snowboarding. My first video was anthem.
Where you could see how cool Colorado was. Such amazing names as Todd
franzen, tr jay Nelson tarquin Robbins kickin it down. Once I moved
here. I have meet most of them. In snowboarding there are 2 types of
shredders. The naturally gifted and the strugglers. Chad is just gifted.
When you can watch him closely everthing he does is epic. From his
slashing to general everyday lifestyle. When you can see him catch
his heel edge on a 70 foot jump and magically turn it into a backside
rodeo Without death wow. When you can see him at the bar calling you
out for being a complete dude that's also super sweet. I can say that
if you are blessed to have him as a friend get ready for an amazing
I can say that knowing him has afforded me the availability of
keeping the dream alive.
Chad is one of the few names that has survived the industry. He is
in it for the long haul. And I cannot ever forsee him stopping EVER.
I really hope this interview shows his passion for the game.........
Method Berthoud Pass high school trip
1: why breck? Actualy copper, but for the champaign powder. Why else would I live here?
2: who do you love to shred with? I shred with my girl, most of my old friends that moved outta town and some of the new ones that still live here. I just like shredding with people who send it or like shredding a lot!!!
3: where was the worst job you worked at in the county? Overnights at city market, it wasn't that bad though, your sleep schedule was all screwed up that was the only bad part. Otherwise walmart sucked pretty bad. I liked most of the jobs I've had though. I worked at farmers corner for 2 years, that was an awsome job.
4: what was your most favorite moment in summit? Champaign powder days with your friends. The early days were real fun too cause everything was new.
5: what was the worst memory in summit? Everytime I got hurt snowboarding!!! Separated ribs and shoulder, torn mcl, bruised nerve in my leg, a couple concusons, sprained wrist, knees,hips and ankles, knockin my teeth out. I also hate it when people drive in the left lane all slow and dont use there blinkers. I have a problem with ski patrol too, I got yelled at the other day for slashing snow into a fence. I couldn't say anything I just had to say "sorry sir I won't turn down the hill anymore". You cant say anything or they will pull your pass. I cant handle it when they power trip on you. Otherwise it's pretty sweet here. Not too many bad memories.
6: who do you dislike the most in this county? Skiers that bite snowboarders. I don't hate em, but It took you this long to figure out fat skis float in powder better. And when skiers go backwards. I totally respect skiers, i used to ski and own a split board. Just keep it to goin big in the pipe or doin crazy lines, or buy a snowboard, it's way less effort!!! Quit biting trends that snowboarders started, most of them were wack in the first place. I saw this kid dressed like target the other day on the hill. If you fall going backwards, grabing "pinching" your skis, slide anything, you kind of deserve it. Unless your a skier I know right, then your awesome, RIP skier Erik. Otherwise I don't really like it when people live here for the wrong reasons. They come up here lookin for a free ride, you always see em at the bars sprayin down, but you never see em on the hill. They end up movin outta town claimin this town sucks, when its awesome. It'll never change, but we could do without all the sprayers.
7: tell us about the red rocket? I hope you mean red racer? That was my old car. Id deliver food for cabby with it, honking at tourists all night, cutting em off. I wish i still had it.
8: what is your favorite trick? Tricks are for kids.
9: who did you look upto as a kid in the snowboarding world? Peter Line, Blaise Rosenthal, Bryan Iguchi, Marty Carlson, Todd Richards, Terje, Daniel Frank, Roan Rodgers, Dale Rehberg, Nate Cole, Jake Blatner, Noah Salasnek, Jonny B, Tarquin Robbins, Jay Nelson, Jamie Lynn, JP Walker I could go forever.
10: dude where's my car? Thats a long story about a stolen rental car in Norway, it would take two pages to write. But I should be saying that too you...
11: what is the best hidden spot that kids should know about in
summit county? The Meyer Mine zone up humbug hill out in french creek. Everyone should go there. Check a topo map its called "American Gulch" seriously.
12: where is your favorite night spot to chill or blackout at? Liquid, Cecelias, Dredge. Ive been trying not to black out. Its not good for chucking moves
13: night cap of choice? Olympia
14: mountain or backcountry? whats the difference. I like riding chairs on a pow day.
15: most entertaining person to hang out with and why?My girlfriend and Tha Dogggg
16: what happened to the resturant you owned? Main street station didnt renew our lease. We should have been a bar instead of a resturant. It was just hard at that location because there were condos all around and it was too noisy. Sure was a good time though. I wouldnt recommend opening a resturant in Breck. Have you seen all the signs down at Erics.
17: If you could tell one story about the county that stands out
what would it be? Theres a lot of them. I heard OJ was out at the golf course one day.
18: what is you favorite video part of all time who and what video? Bryan Iguchi, the hard the hungt and the homeless. It was the most progressive video part ever. It had jibbing pipe and jumps. Before most people could do 360s. Im down to watch people who can ride everything.
19: do you still back the Vikings, t-wolves and the wild? I back the Wild. Im not into football. And as far as Basketball goes im a Celtics fan now that KG went to Boston. Always Minnesota before Colorado.
20: how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck
