It’s the same story every year. Transworld picks a bunch of up-and-comers to blow up in their video project, and inevitably there’s a few Canadians in the mix. All of a sudden, the kids down south start taking notice, and Transworld gets the credit for “discovering” these guys despite the fact that they’ve been all over Canadian snowboard media for the past few years.
I can’t say it’s a bad thing, because usually the guys deserve all the coverage they’re getting (and have usually deserved it for a long time). Well it’s happening again, and this year Mark Sollors, Greg Desjardins, Phil Jacques and Jake Kuzyk are on deck.
