Davis Griffin - Our creativity is spawned from our inability to remain satisfied with anything.
Bring in the New:
When I first saw a glimmer of light in my hopes of becoming a professional wakeboarder, I knew I wouldn’t be able to get anywhere doing what had already been done. I think we all knew that, and that’s what we’ve always been about.
Lately I’ve been getting my inspiration from the smallest rails in the park. I used to be all about going huge, but now I’m having the most fun and learning a lot from the little things. It allows you to work on your switch game and lets you focus on technique and style rather than effort. Although this particular feature doesn’t fall under the “little things” category, I like to think: less rail, more style …
Before we settle on any idea we have to consult the snowboard gods. They tell us whether or not it would be a good idea and if it would be cool or not. Then we build whatever it is. We’ve really honed our building skills over the past years of obstacle construction. It’s something we really enjoy doing, and a different side of Shredtown no one really gets to see (unless you come here, then we make you build shit too). We still ride boat to get in touch with our roots, and winch season is about to be here so we are all stoked for some road trips and new scenery.
Shooting photos is a rare occasion here in Texas, so when Bear (Bryan Soderlind) comes to Shredtown it’s like a photofest free-for-all. We take pictures all day and all night — it’s so sick. I did this back tail like 100 times trying to make it look super chill.
