Colin is an American snowboarder, mountaineer, and surfer currently based out of Wanaka, New Zealand. In 2011 & 2012 he won the Whakapapa Extremes at Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand, a qualifying stop on the Freeride World Tour. Colin is currently training for the 2012-2013 big mountain comp season, will be returning to Black Diamond Tours in Hokkaido, Japan to work as a ski/snowboard guide, is an integral part of the Helisurf NZ team as they continue to help surfers enjoy the Fiordland coast line of New Zealand, and also works as a marketing coordinator for Logic Funds Management. He’s happiest behind the wheel of a used cargo van full of gear, en route to the mountains or coast, far from the nearest cell tower.
