For those of you that are my age you probably know who Chris Roach is if you were a die hard park rider, for you kiddies out there you owe all that skate style influence to him and Noah Salasnek. Here’s what VBS had to say about this episode: Chris Roach is a no bullshit kind of guy. That’s why it seems only half as shocking as it might when he admits feeling like he’s been paid more to party than to snowboard. That said, Roach’s talents should not be underestimated. With an incomparable style, Chris is as talented on both a skateboard and motorcycle as he is on a snowboard. In this episode of Powder & Rails, VBS roams Roach’s backyard motocross track to talk about the role skating played in his early snowboarding career and to get the definitive story behind his lifetime ban from both Japan and the World Cup Tour.
