Damian Sanders, Legendary Snowboarder


Damian Sanders is arguably the first and last real rockstar in the world of snowboarding. He’s one of those riders who had an image that the whole sport could be marketed on. From his look to the way he rode, to how he partied, to his entourage, if you saw Damian out, you wouldn’t think he was a snowboarder. He was larger than life and defined 'go big or go home' on and off snow. On the podcast, we talk about coming up punk/new wave, Tahoe, Palmer, Farmer, Plake, cars, money, and more. It’s a fun chat with a true living legend.
