The homie Eddie Wall has been killing it in snowboarding and the snowboard related industry for years and years. He also gives one of the best interviews out there. Check this one out from Pyramid Mag where he gets real. They talk about filming for Forum videos, traveling, parties, his retirement from pro riding and the current state of snowboarding amongst other things.

Sample:

I can imagine that to end up riding for a team as popular as Jeenyus and Forum , being surrounded by your hero’s must be a surreal experience, were you nervous to ride with those guys on the first trips?
Of course. Everyone on the Forum team was my idol. I was just a kid from the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania and now I was riding with my heros. I was nervous but that just made me try to film better clips, try to keep up with them and show them I was worthy enough to be on the team.

You travelled the world riding, what is the most memorable trip that you went on and have you got any stories about weird team trips?
I always say one of the coolest parts of snowboarding for a living was the amount of countries we were able to travel to. I’m on my third passport which is pretty crazy. My first trip to Japan with the Jeenyus/ Forum team was unforgettable. We had a big tour bus and we all got air soft guns and would just have gun battles the entire trip. We ended up riding some of the best powder ever and just partied to the next level in Tokyo. On the majority of the trips we were filming so although we partied a little we were mainly focused on getting shots. The most fun trips were premiere tours. Like the Video Gangs World Tour was insane. We went all over the US, Europe, Japan, even South Korea. Just non stop partying and mayhem. The THAT tour across the US and Canada was really cool because we had one of those big tour buses and we all had our own bunkbed. So for a month straight we just cruised around the US skating and going to huge premieres and sleeping on the bus. The tours were memorable because we were all hanging together and traveling but didn’t have the pressure of waking up in the morning and filming a trick that you were scared to death to try.
