    Snowboarding Expert

    Store: CASTLEFORD-LEEDS

    Johnny is another of our pro riders, so as well as being sponsored by The Snowboard Asylum, he gets free kit from Lobster, Thirty Two and Union. He started boarding over 18 years ago, and at the age of 16 went to his first local competition. His snowboarding career built from there, and last year he managed to get to 10 different resorts and two end of season competitions

    During his time as a snowboarder Johnny has completed 5 full seasons in resort, and he’s been on the last 5 TSA board tests. Needless to say he knows a lot about snowboarding so if you want some expert advice, drop in to the Castleford shop and talk to Johnny.
