Background

Austin's first time on a snowboard was during a family trip to Ruidoso, NM in December of 2003. His dad introduced him into the sport, and what would eventually become his career. Once he strapped his feet into his crappy rental board, he fell in love. He fell so in love with it that it only took one month after for him to get his first snowboard setup.
Fast forward to Winter 2012/Spring 2013 and one can see how far he has came, despite his many disadvantages. From becoming sponsored to entering his first competitions and everything in between, Austin is planning on showing that Texans can ride, too.
