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. It’s a fun walk through snowboard history with an outerwear visionary

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

10:00:  Soccer, finding skating, stereotypes, roller rink skateparks, how does he pay to get to the US, and how does he stay

Paddy Graham wasn’t supposed to be a pro skier wearing a Red Bull helmet. He’s from Sheffield, and everyone knows Brits for their football, not their talent in the mountains. But Paddy changed that school of thought, and it all started on a dry slope. Yep, before Paddy was filming powder segments, he learned how to ski on carpet. And that magic carpet had taken Paddy all over the world in pursuit of deep snow and the biggest jumps ever built. We talk about his interesting journey, the Legs of Steel crew, getting the most airtime ever, and so much more on the podcast. It’s a different road map than most take to becoming a pro skier.  Ahmet Dadali asks the Inappropriate Questions.

While Tyler Turner has lived a life of adventure, he almost had it all taken away from him a few years ago when a skydiving accident destroyed his lower limbs. Between amputations, addiction and depression, it would have been easy for Tyler to throw in the towel and feel sorry for himself. And while there may have been a little of that in the beginning, Tyler quickly realized that he wanted to live again….and living is what he’s doing these days. On the podcast, we take you through his life before and after his life-altering injury. Complete with Paralympic medals and wingsuit jumps. It’s an incredible story.
