Well before snowboarding’s limelight shown down on Lonnie Kauk’s shoulders, he was killing it with a misty and already legendary air about him. There were stories being whispered around Mammoth about an unsigned heavyweight who lived on the outskirts of town. No one knew much about him other than that he would show up like a quiet storm and settle the heaviest sessions. At the time Lonnie would quite often be the only snowboarder on cue due to the colossal size of the obstacles he was pitting himself against.
Nowadays, a Snowboarder Magazine Superpark standout three years running Lonnie Kauk has shown up, and now they know his name. Today Lonnie is hitting those colossal obstacles alongside the best in the business, and raising the bar of what a man is capable of doing on a snowboard—and he does it all with a style and air all his own. It’s not uncommon to see Lonnie summoning the spirit of the eagle on his way into a jump, and it’s not uncommon to see that spirit show up flying with Lonnie in true colors.
A true man of the mountain, Lonnie avoids the city as much as possible and is peacefully at home in the expansive outdoors of Mammoth Lakes, and neighboring Yosemite. When not strapped in and soaring through the sky, or pointing it down monster sized lines in the backcountry; you can usually find Lonnie at The Brothers Skatepark in Mammoth, or ascending a monster sized face in the surrounding backcountry—following in the footholds of his father, widely celebrated rock climber Ron Kauk. Incidentally, Ron filmed climbing videos with Mike Hatchett of famed Standard Films, who in turn would send snowboard movies to the Kauk household. Watching those movies as a kid was Lonnie’s first taste of what snowboarding could be, and seemingly by fate Lonnie’s dreams are now being realized through that same crew. Now he’s on the big screen and sharing that space with the best snowboarder’s in the world.
Lonnie Kauk is an envelope pushing snowboarder, a matter of fact game changer, and a positive force to be reckoned with. We would say be on the lookout, but you can’t miss him. Stay tuned
