Dave Downing is a living legend in the snowboard world who is married to another living legend, Shannon Dunn Downing. But he’s so much more than just a husband. He’s a surfer shop rat who landed a job as a snowboard sales rep and somehow, was able to turn that into 15 years of pro snowboarding before becoming one of the most real ambassadors/whatever he does for Burton, that there is. It’s a history lesson this week that brings it all the way to today….
