Talented British Snowboarder Nate Kern on 1080's & Husky's






1. Hometown?

FOREST ROW- EAST SUSSEX

2. Use 3 carefully selected words to describe what snowboarding is to you

FREE, FUN & ADRENALINE

3. Where are you at the moment?

BRECKENRIDGE, COLORADO USA!

4. What are you snowboarding and personal goals for the future?

TO KEEP PUSHING MYSELF, RIDING IN THE X-GAMES, TTR EVENTS AND WINNING. ALL FOUR 1080'S.TO BUILD A HOUSE HERE IN COLORADO AND GET ANOTHER HUSKY WITH MY GIRL TANYA. SHARE THE WELLNESS OF NIKKEN WITH HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.


5. Where do you see snowboarding in say 10 years time?


BEING AT ANOTHER LEVEL WITH RIDING BEING WAY MORE TECHNICAL AND EQUIPMENT BEING INSANE. LIKE PRESS A BUTTON AND YOUR BOOTS ARE READY TO GO. BOARDS BEING MADE OUT OF NEW MATERIALS FOUND ON MARS. TONS OF PEOPLE HAVING PERSONAL PARKS LIKE THE DC MT LAB!!


6. What are the benefits and drawbacks (if any) of being a British snowboarder?


BENEFITS ARE FEW AS FAR AS I CAN THINK... ITS NICE TO BE STAND OUT AND INSPIRE THE YOUNGER GENERATION. DRAWBACKS ARE PLENTIFUL, GOTTA PAY A TON TO BE ON THE BRITISH TEAM AND REPRESENT YOUR COUNTRY, UNLIKE NEARLY EVERYWHERE ELSE WHERE THEY PAY YOU. THE SNOW SCENE ISNT MASSIVE SO ISNT TO MUCH MONEY IN IT IN THE UK.


7. If snowboarding didn't exist, what would you be doing instead?


SKI... HAHA JOKING. SKATEBOARDING IS SUPER FUN AND WOULD BE DOING A LOT MORE OF THAT.


8. Who is your favourite rider, and why? (Choose as many as you wish)


TRAVIS RICE... REMEMBER SEEING HIM IN SNOWBOARDER MAG BACK IN THE DAY DOING A 112 FOOT RODEO AT MAMMOTH SUPER PARK AS AN UNKNOWN GUY AND THINKING HE IS GONNA BE HUGE. LOOK AT HIM NOW!! "THATS IT, THATS ALL" SAYS IT ALL REALLY. HES SICK AND RIDES FOR DC!!


9. Who are you sponsors?




10. Any 'Nate Kern' words of wisdom ? (WOW)


IF THIS IS A DREAM, I HOPE I NEVER WAKE UP! YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE. GO RIDE AND HAVE FUN.


THANK YOU TO: MY GIRL TANYA, MUM,DAD, FAMILY FRIENDS AND OF COURSE MY SPONSORS FOR THE SUPPORT, DC, SMITH, DROP, BAWBAGS, ME.GLAD.
