21) What do you like most about Kanuk and why do you ride for them? I was able to be with kanuk and help them get started when it was just an idea long before the name Kanuk was even decided, Getting to spend time with them and watch the ideas come to life was just a blast and it feels like it has become a Surf family and everyone on the team seems to be so comfortable with everyone and I think we have one of the best environments out there ! Everyone is full of support ! I’m sure any of you last year at any of the events where we had riders we had a strong presence everywhere we went ! I also love that the team tends to try to make it to the same events and I end up being way more exited to see and ride with everyone then I am for the event.
