Eric Messier is the most influential snowboarder you have never heard of. His lengthy career has been underground because his snowboarding has always been two-steps ahead of the pack. From years dedicated to wooden stair cases and urban influenced backcountry to leading the newest generation of snowboarders mastering the art of the carve and the beauty of the turn, Messier is often bored by the status quo but often influencing the trends that we see today.
