After this interview I went and stopped eating meat, gluten and refined salts until the Shred season started and stop smoking (my addiction was about 1 cigarette every […]

Frank April doesn’t really need an introduction. If you have been exposed to snowboarding for the last couple of years you will know of the name. Frank was having dinner with his grandmother when I called him. Believe the hype, this grandmas boy can kill it on a snowboard.

New “ground breaking holy shit balls better than the banana craze” technology […]
