Can you send me 300 000 bucks so I can buy a building and finally open my own shop and be the only Lib Tech dealer in the area? Make it quick, got to open it before the winter!
Sure thing, If you could just meet me at Washington Mutual at 3:45 on Next Tues. then I’m sure we can work it out. Its just gonna be a 60/40 split with myself retaining First Right of Refusal.

What would you say helped you progress the most in regards to both freestyle and backcountry riding? For ex: what helped you learn a mctwist or something like that…
For most of my younger years it was gymanstics and skiing. this helped me build alot of good skills. Then I started yoga. this brought me inline with the planets. Then fly fishing let me climb out of the harsh world and into a very happy place. and that is where i found the inspiration for the mctwist. While starring into the eyes of a big mouth bass cought on five pound test. I slammed his little head on a rock and bammm. He slipped out and did a perfect Terje haakonsenstyle, japan grabbing, tuck knee like a muther fuc$er Mctwist. The fish stomped it so hard he just went home afterwards. So I went out the next winter and pulled it first try and I haven’t done one since. I’m over mctwists. These days it’s all about having a mean nose butter combo.

Is danny really shorter than lil jon?
Listen up buddie. You might think it’s funny to make fun of Danny cause he’s short. You might also think it’s funny he has to run and jump to put his shoes on. I bet you also think that just because he has a little guido mustache that it’s now going to be a trend in mammoth to have a thin little slimey mustache. Well your right. you win the big prize. Here’s a free month of heli skiing at “Hecklers Womb” New Hampshire. There you will enjoy over 400 vertical feet of fresh pristine northestern concrete and nothing ot get in your way.

what do you like better double back flips or double front flips?
I have to say that when i first started doing the double backie on film people hated it. I don’t even think it even made it in the movie. then i do one in japan and the croud looses their shi@. So on one hand the film editer throws the shot on the floor. Then on the other hand some little japanees girl throws me her painties.

after all you’ve seen/done, and whenever you fly back into the black hole…is is still heaven? you gotta admit, there’s probably no place on earth like it. nothing beats the tetons, jackrabbits, and matching polaris jackets on hill climb weekends..right?
Jackson hole is always going to be my home. Let’s just say that when this is all over for me, there is one place you’re for sure going to find me. And that’s Jackson hole Wyoming. And sometimes Hawaii. And of course the bahamas. and new zealand. Oh yeh and I can’t forget Rock Springs. And the occational visit to the epcot center.

Are you actually aware that you are The Golden Child, or do still actually think you are a “normal” pro? After seeing the way you rode in Water To Wine, and everything since then, I hope that one day you and I will ride mountains others once thought were unridable. Honestly, I couldn’t visualize being that good at ridding until I saw the way you do it. Good thing it was the first snowboard vid I saw or maybe, just maybe I’d be lost. Thanks! You have the force. Let the revolution begin…
Dear Mr. Deep Backcountry Pow Scientist.
Flustered from the props, but seriously man, I’m about as normal as the lump on your testicle. Not that common but their around… All it is is trust in ones self.. Get out there and feel your own flow..
