Rory Silva, Pro Skier


Rory Silva was a child prodigy and one of my favorites…. He was this talented kid, who had a really unique style, and was progressive. What he didn’t have was the assertiveness, ambition, and guidance to become a household name in skiing….But he still had a huge impact on the skiers of his era. On the podcast we talk about weed, video parts gone wrong, diabetes, and more...
