He isn't pretentious, learn what the word means, he literally is the most dominate snowboarader of all time... The guy is a legend, not pretentious. But he is a douche bag, like I legit think he is a horrible person, after watching that documentary on kevin pearce just wow, huge douche.
Point is I don't like him, but almost entirely for his personality... The guy brought a lot of money and exposure into snowsports. Give credit and respect where it's due. But he is a dbag.
