This, he's done cork 7s on 50ft kickers on a board this season. No clue what the motivation behind the switch was. Maybe just sick of skiing, he started out snowboarding so I can see why he would want to go back. Making a change from something you already know well is definitely not a bad thing, plus snowboarding gear is usually slightly cheaper than ski gear.
Could someone be a hero and send this thread to him on IG or something to get a response from him in here?
