Expert Member Profile: E13

SierraSnowboard.com Expert Member E13
Sierra Snowboard Username: E13

Real name: Eric, my friends call me E (Hell, even my Mom calls me E at times, I think it’s endearing).

Age: 27

Gender: Dude

Hometown: Originally from Casper, Wyoming, now live in Tucson, Arizona.

Home mountain: Mt. Lemmon, Sunrise. I travel quite a bit to board.

Favorite board(s): I’m diggin’ my new Burton Custom V-Rocker at the moment (Thanks Sierra, much love). I also love my Capita Scaremaster like a fat kid loves cake. Zoe tricked it out for me E<3Z

Favorite bindings: It’s a toss up between the Burton CO2s and the Burton Cartels. The Cartels have been my go-to binding for years now and have seen me through some pretty awesome times.

Favorite boots: Burton Ions or 32 Ultralights. The 32s are super comfy, but the Ions are the most responsive boot I’ve ever ridden.

Favorite other gear: I really dig some 686 outerwear. That Smarty system is a lifesaver in AZ. I mean, we have days here where I’ll be riding in a T-shirt, but can then use the same pants to ride in Jackson Hole on a -13 degree day.

What terrain do you like to ride? I LOVE tree runs. If I ever go missing, that’s where you’ll find me. Untouched, untracked goodness.

What’s on your iPod these days? My riding list is random mix of the following: Diplo, Massive Attack, Portishead, Lovage, Zero 7, Tricky, Bob Marley, Sublime, Thievery Corporation, Gorillaz, Z-Trip, Kinky, Spearhead, A.O.S., Supreme Beings of Leisure, G. Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, Jurassic 5, Bill Withers, Delerium, The Buena Vista Social Club, Sneaker Pimps and Hooverphonic.

What would be your dream snowboard trip? I really don’t think it could’ve gotten much better than what I just had in Tahoe with the gang from Sierra Snowboard. Good people, good times, good snow. It was nice to finally meet all of the people that make Sierra, well Sierra. The people that you’re with make such a huge difference in how your day turns out, both in terms of progression and on the fun-ometer. I’d really like to make it up to Alaska eventually, or somewhere in the Swiss Alps.

Why do you spend so much time in the Sierra Snowboard online community? Frankly, I haven’t always. I first came to Sierra in search of a 2007 Burton Twin 157. Not only did Sierra have it, but it was deeply discounted, so I made the purchase and continued to purchase, not knowing about the community that had assembled on the site. It wasn’t until about 8 or 9 months ago that I discovered the community side of Sierra. Frankly, I’ve met some of the coolest people, and never would have even guessed that it would be online at a snowboarding site. The primary difference between SS and a social networking site is that everyone has a collective common interest: SNOW. The online interaction is a great way for people to share ideas, information and good times.

Best advice you would give someone new to SierraSnowboard.com?
* Get involved in the Sierra Community. There’s a whole new world out there comprised of knowledgeable riders and good peeps.
* Be respectful, appropriate (relatively speaking) and insightful. The vast majority of people on here are good people that may end up being someone you can shred with.
* Meet up and ride with new people! The best times I’ve had snowboarding have been with community members on Sierra. I’m hoping to meet some cats from AZ this year to shred with up in Sunrise.

Words to live by (e.g. favorite quote, unsolicited advice)?
“Ride with people that are better than you. Watch what they do and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Pains and spills lead to steeze and skills.” And “Live your life for the people that love you, not the ones that hate you.”

E13 E13 - I must've missed him, Hoon. My buddy Walter has been trying to get me to go biking with him for a long time but I haven't made it happen yet. There are some great places to ride for sure.
