“I like to partner with the world’s leading brands. That’s why I choose Bollé. Their eyewear is the best and I can rely on it in all conditions. Reliability is key for me, I need to know that my equipment on the mountain is going to hold up and give me the confidence to attack every corner. There can be no compromise on quality equipment and Bollé goggles are the best in the business. Additionally, they have some great styles so you look good while you are out there too!”

“I started when I was 8 and quickly fell in love with everything about snowboarding, especially freeriding the whole mountain as fast as I could. I think this is how I also loved competing in SBX as it has all elements of snowboarding in one event: speed, jumps and bank turns. I won the Australian nationals in open mens when I was 15 and started traveling overseas. I won the Nor Am tour at 18 and qualified for the World Cup tour. Since then my major titles include 2 World Championship gold and 1 bronze, Two overall World Cup titles (Crystal Globe) and represented Australia at 2 Winter Olympic games. Still love what I do and looking forward to more racing!!”
