Josh Dirksen has an almost peerless reputation as a snowboarder. He combines surf style flow with a skate influenced outlook on the mountain. He also has one of the great turns in snowboarding.
His part in this winter’s Insight movie from Transworld Snowboarding is a beaut. It’s all about home and riding the mountains and terrain in your backyard, which seems to be a theme that’s becoming more and more relevant these days. Fortunately the volcanoes in Dirksen’s backyard have the kind of snow and terrain just made for his style of riding. Or perhaps he rides how he does because of the local terrain?
