Drew Petersen’s life and times have been defined by highs and lows from the time he was a little kid. On one hand, he lived in Colorado and developed a passion for skiing young. While that passion grows, so does depression and bipolar disorder, which is not diagnosed until much later in life. Combining that with a life of winning ski contests on the weekends and then returning to school as the smart, intense kid wasn’t the best combination. But Drew pushed through, made it as a pro skier, then had terrible accidents in the mountains, with a lot of head trauma and the suicidal thoughts became way stronger than they were at 9 years old. I’ve said enough, this is a heavy podcast, Drew is not afraid to share, and everyone should listen.

Mike Styskal, aka Styk, has lived his life as a creative force in snowboard design, but Styk is so much more than that. He's one of those people that exudes effortless cool: he always has a different unique look, and his sense of style is always on point. It's a characteristic that helped this Nebraska farm boy go from the small-town USA to the progressive city of Seattle and thrive. On the podcast, we talk about Nebraska, Burning Bush Studios, Ride, China, trouble, Draplin, and so much more. If you like business episodes, don't miss this one.

Brant Moles is one of those legends that have zero ego. While he’s a quiet guy, he’s not afraid to share what happened with his career…and in the first part of his career, he was a Wisconsin-based ski racer who went to an east coast academy with the goal of making the US Ski Team…but with all stories like Brant’s, politics play a role. When that happens, it usually doesn’t work out. The good thing is Brant Moles’ career isn’t remembered for racing; it’s remembered for winning extreme contests, filming with the heavy hitters of his time, and helping lobby the industry to make fat skis. Brant Moles helped change the sport of skiing with product and how he used it in Alaska, and his story is one that should have been told long ago….but this is his first podcast.

33:00:  Post Grad years, and doing all he could to make it all over again only to have politics end his career,  not caring about skiing

40:30:  10 Barrel Brewery:  Buy their beers; they support action sports more than anyone

GoPro:  The only action sports camera that matters

Elan Skis:  Over 75 years of innovation that makes you better

43:00:  Blizzard of Ahhh’s, Snowboarders in Exile, Filming with Rob Bruce, and Spinal Snap

54:00:  Getting the Golden Ticket to Hollywood and Europe, access to the mountains that no one else had, and sponsored by Nobis

60:00:  Survival skiing, out of his comfort zone, and no tracks anywhere in France

65:00:  Inappropriate Questions with Jeremy Nobis and Rob Bruce

Sep 12, 2022

Michelle Parker has made a name for herself in the big mountains, but her roots go all over the board when it comes to sports and skiing. An elite soccer player with a big future, Michelle was forced to choose between soccer and ski racing at a young age. She chose ski racing, became a Junior Olympic Champion, and then quit racing in favor of the park and skiing powder. While Michelle competed for a bit, injuries made her realize that contests were not her thing and her focus shifted entirely to filming. She’s arguably one of the most important skiers this century. We talk about real issues in this one, and Michelle has a great perspective. Roy Tuscany asks Inappropriate Questions.

Eric Schrijn is a street skater with legendary status and infinite wisdom. He was the winner of the first ever IMYTA street contest, he’s had timeless video sections, magazine covers, pro model products and  X Games hardware. While he was making this happen, he was also dealing with a family suicide, a diagnosis of bi-polar and managing all of that.

But did you know the show pre-dates TPM?  Years ago, I had a podcast with Powder Magazine called “Sponsored,” and to build my own audience off that show, I created Inappropriate Questions as a stand-alone podcast and put it out on the TPM feed.

Mike Adams’s legendary 45-year career in snow business has come to an end.

Nick Sargent is the SIA President who moved the business and sold its key revenue generator, the SIA Tradeshow...but he’s so much more than that.

Louie Vito has done it all: Champion snowboarder, reality TV star on ‘Dancing with the Stars’, playing himself in the sequel to ‘Point Break’, and there is so much more to him. On part 2 with Louie, we dive into sponsors, contests, Danny Kass and the Grenade Crew, the fact that no brand ever put big marketing dollars behind him, and so much more.

Louie Vito is a badass snowboarder. He’s an Olympian, a US Grand Prix Champion, a Dew Tour Champion, an X Games medalist, and he comes from a 300 vertical foot hill in Ohio. He also seems to know everyone form celebrities to pro athletes, he’s competed in Dancing With The Stars, he’s been in a Hollywood blockbuster movie and he’s pretty humble about it all.

Tyler Bereman is a badass when it comes to riding his dirkbike but that is only part of what makes Tyler so special. He’s the kid who was born into a motorcycle family and while he didn’t have the same finances as his competitors to make his supercross dreams happen, after some ups and downs, he made it.

Mark Fankhauser has been a creative force in snow for over 20 years. “Fank” grew up worshipping Glen Plake, Scot Schmidt, and Mike Hattrup before he found the opportunity that came with snowboarding. From there, Fank chased Peter Line down the mountains of the PNW before landing his gig at Ride Snowboards while still in college. Eventually, Fank created and led the in-house design agency at K2 Sports; he spent time inside the walls of DOE, Mystery Made, and REI. These days Fank is a part-owner and head of design over at J Skis, and his story is a fun business episode.

Trent Bush was born into a family of technical outerwear designers at a time when snowboarding didn’t exist. Trent grew up learning how to build outerwear and skateboarding. He was a grom before groms existed, and when Wave Rave opened its doors in Boulder, Trent hung out there daily until they hired him and his brother. From there, they grew with the sport of snowboarding, eventually creating the iconic Twist and Analog brands and running design for brands like Burton, Mountain Hardware, Fenix, Fjallraven, Saga, Black Diamond, and more.

Marco de Santi has the most interesting journey of any athlete I’ve had on the podcast. Born in a less than desirable situation in Sao Paolo, Brazil, Marco did what every kid does; he played soccer until he found skateparks. Marco quit team sports and headed to the USA at age 15, with literally nothing, to make his pro skating dream happen. While Marco eventually became a world Champion, inline was dropped by X-Games, and the organizing body of his sport didn’t include Marco in future events. So the first skater to land a triple was forced out of competition and into a life of LOVE, which he performs in every night with the Cirque de Soleil. It doesn’t get more rags to riches than this one.

Marco de Santi Show Notes:

3:30:  Issues around his backyard vert ramp, growing up in Sao Paolo, and family life
