Greatest accomplishment as a snowboarder?
Huuuh! Getting a chance to do this for living.

There are so many! Best ones are definitely Nanshan Open trips and last spring when I did a little road trip in the USA. That included one contest in Keystone, riding in Breckenridge with friends and Ms. Superpark in Mammoth. Great memories!
