Saturdays at the Creek
Its not all the time you get to find your roots. I grew up in New Jersey and getting to take a trip with friends back to VERNON where I learned my first a 360 on a snowboard is a big thing to me and any other person to strap in and jump. I hope this piece makes you want to come visit NJ, just watch out for the new McHc (Mountain Creek Hard Core) viva la snow boarding. Don’t forget-where you came from. Filming the experience on a 8mm camera just is the hot sauce on the wings. Enjoy this piece filmed by Zak Bush. Thanks for the 8mm Justin! -Danny Kass
Magic Carpet Ride!
The two time Olympic silver medalist and five time US Open champion’s mid wide twin C2 BTX with new Liquid Crystal Polymer is a high- tech smooth riding Banana that will take you where ever you want to go. 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. Danny just wrapped up season five of Danny and the Dingo and will be floating over a mountain near you on his magic carpet.

Do you like to get weird, if so why and what do you do, if not why not?

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 après 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.
