About the Athletes:
• Cole Navin – Receiving the coveted Transworld Snowboarding Riders’ Poll Rookie of the Year in 2017, Cole came onto the scene last year strong with edits in ‘Rendered Useless’ and ‘Lords Of The Chiken 8′. Navin got into the urban riding scene in his hometown of Worchester, Mass.
• Jake Blauvelt – Starting out in the competition circuit suited Blauvelt well, but he quickly realized the backcountry was his calling. Based out of Mt. Baker, Blauvelt is a big mountain snowboarder that sees natural terrain as a blank canvas to make his own.
