Twin Power Freestyle from an American Hero

Danny Kass is an American hero and has one hot mid wide Banana! Danny spent years riding super taco’s all over the world and polished his Banana to perfection, in an environment where carrying a fast line through the flat bottom is the difference between victory and defeat and controlled pop off the lip is the difference between progression and the hospital. The two time Olympic silver medalist and five time US Open champion’s mid wide twin XC2 BTX with new Liquid Crystal Polymer is a high-tech smooth riding banana that will take you places you never imagined. Camber at each end for pop and stability on landings, Banana between your feet for float in powder and incredible edge-hold and carving control on hardpack and ice.

I have really enjoyed hiking pow terrain. I like catching me some airtime so really everything from pow to slush.

Whats an average day in your life right now?
Well the average day in my life would consist of waking up eating some food packing a lunch and heading to the hill for one really long run of hiking and building. Then off the mountain for a little apre maybe, then followed by a candle light dinner with my cat on skype.

Optimist / Pessimist? Realist? Weirdest?
I would have to go with a cross breed of weirdest/ radicalist so it would be a weirdicalist.

Do make a living off the snow?
Yes i have worked in the snow industry since i was 16 and i have been doing it on gnu snow toys since i was 12 years old.

What does Gnu mean to you?
It means the self expression of ones riding fun and getting the opportunity to be weird.

Besides Shredding, what do you enjoy doing? i enjoy canoeing on fool moons. you?
I like to build bird houses as a new hobby. I also enjoy skating at midnight and instagraming

What gets you out of bed in the morning, what inspires you?
Sunrises and music.

Anything with the banana tech my favorite is my promodel.
