Jeff Brushie one of a kind, and ahead of his time…


jeffblogMeet meek mild mannered Jeff Brushie, now the mellow man, married with two lovely kids. Jeff has moved on from snowboarding, but still has his hand in on judging events. For the past few years Xgames has used him to as one of the main superpipe judges. This year the Dew tour used him in both events, slopestyle and superpipe.
If you get a chance to see some footage of Jeff Brushie back in the day, you’ll see the for-shadowing of tricks. Jeff remains one of the stylish rider ever, in any era. Mr. Smooth to you, he was one of the consistent riders who brought snowboarding to the next level. You could still better your riding byseeing him ride. He wife Greta could teach most riders a thing or two too. I can’t wait to see how well their kids ride….

Greg Bretz’s Superpipe run at the Winter Dew Tour


Kinda like the Mozart of snowboarding, Greg began at the age of 5 and started competing at age 10. Taking all of his opponents off guard, he added two World Cup podiums and his first World Cup win to his resume in his first season. His first snowboard was given to him from his father who worked for lift maintenance at Mammoth Mountain. It seemed to fit him better than a pair of skis ever could so he stuck with it. In his free time Greg skateboards and dirtbikes — his mind never strays from sports. He doesn’t have a favorite movie, a favorite band, or a favorite TV show, but some of his favorite athletes are Tara Dakides, Keegan Valaika, and Travis Parker. Watch out for this kid, he just turned 18 and shows no sign of slowing down.

Mason Aguirre’s Superpipe run at the Winter Dew Tour

 


Mason Aguirre and his family moved to Mammoth Lakes, CA when he was in the 8th grade so he could focus on snowboarding. The move paid off, at the age of 15 Mason became pro and now he’s on fire! He’s nailed the requisite back-to-back 1080s, and his off-axis 9s and smooth, lofty style set him apart for the rest of the pack.
In 2006 Mason landed a spot on the prestigious US Olympic team, and he got the chance to stepped up his game in Torino. He came through with a noteworthy 4th place finish in superpipe, but being there was a dream come true for Mason and he was proud to represent the American team.
Family plays a big part in Mason career. His older sister Molly is also a fellow pro snowboarding and they both share a spot on the Burton team. It is having that family support that continues to motivate Mason and encourages him to bring it up to another level!
When he isn’t riding or spending time with his family, Mason enjoys playing golf, skateboarding and playing his guitar.

Andy Finch’s Superpipe run at the Winter Dew Tour

From World Cup events, to the X Games, to the US Open, Andy does it all, and perfects halfpipe riding as the world knows it. Andy is a consistent competitor that all riders watch out for in the halfpipe.
California native Andy Finch started out as an SBX racer because his local mountain didn’t have a halfpipe. Now a standard in the pipe finals, Finch is known for his fearless style and impressive arsenal of inverted tricks. His aggressive no-holds-bared approach to snowboarding has garnered him the nickname of ‘Pitbull.’
