    Thanks everyone for reading and glad it was enjoyed. It was fun to write up and kept me from going crazy waiting to Skiboard. I got stuck helping family move this weekend, so I still haven't gone!!! I'll get out this weekend no matter what it takes...

    Note to Bluewing and Greco -- I see the rider profiles are just in the general skiboarding subforum. Would it make sense to create a subforum just for rider profiles so they are all together and do get lost in the mix of posts once they get old. A bit of a hall of fame. Also, if you create this subforum, can you restrict it so only SBOL rider interviews are posted to it not any profile created by any forum member? Open to comments from all by only creation of new profiles by Greco or Bluewing.
    Great idea, done!

    I take a loose definition to skiboarding. I believe skiboarding is achieved when you take your equipment down to the bare minimum required to ride the way you desire. That said, for a long time I felt a little sad inside when novice riders would be recommended skiboards over 100cm. Why? Skiboarding is the freedom you feel when the equipment disappears, and the shorter the boards, the more quickly they become invisible. I hate to think that someone’s first “skiboard” may be 130cm long. I know these are great boards for a ton of riders, but I think people new to the sport should first experience it in its purest form – where it is a distinct and separate entity from traditional skiing. Only after experiencing this extreme can you have perspective to assess the middle ground boards that may better suit your needs.

    This, this and this, but mainly this.

    We're plenty lucky to have a fellow as thoughtful, intelligent and talented as Kirk representing the sport. Folks who've been lucky enough to meet him also know what a pleasant, personable and well-spoken young man he is. Great job by all involved in this rider profile series.
