ABOUT ZEB POWELL | @ZEBPOWELLL
a Vermont resident originally hailing from North Carolina, rose to
stardom this year during X Games Aspen by taking home top honors in the
Knuckle Huck event. The 20 year-old goofy footer has a knack for melding
classic style with creative tricks and amplitude. His signature blend
of a super-smooth rail game with shifty spins and tweaked-out grabs has
been turning heads for years.
ABOUT JESSE AUGUSTINUS | @JESSEAUGUSTINUS
No mountains is no problem for Jesse Augustinus, the Dutch rail master. At eight years of age Jesse Augustinus
stood on a snowboard for the first time. Why? Because he was bored
during the winter. These days he’s a familiar face on the international
scene, competing in competitions like Burton Rail Days, Stairsmaster and
Red Bull The Station, which he won in 2015, while in 2016 he topped the
podium at DC Shred Fest.
ABOUT BENNY MILAM | @MENNYBILAM
Born and raised in the heartland of America and a hotbed of professional snowboarding, Benny Milam’s
Minnesota roots shine through both in his skillset and his work ethic.
Benny is the definition of a natural as his riding is powerful, fluid
and technical, all melded into one innate style that is visible in all
aspects of his riding. On top of taking home the top spot at last year’s
renowned rail jam Rock-A-Rail and landing in third place at the 2020
Winter Dew Tour Streetstyle jam, Benny has also been filming some of the
most mind-bending video parts of SNOWBOARDER Magazine the last two
ABOUT MILES FALLON| @MILES_FALCON
from Island Heights, New Jersey, Miles Fallon’s surroundings shaped his
snowboarding. “I grew up riding at Big Boulder and I was able to jib a
lot and flip off a bunch of little jumps. Everyone there has a pretty
unique style and because I was surrounded by that, I was able to
discover my style, which is sick.”
ABOUT SEAN NEARY | @_NEARON
A born-and-bred, tried and true east coaster, Sean Neary is a powerful technician both in and out of the park and a prototypical product of the famed Mountain Cree, New Jersey. According to Sean, he grew up riding typical right coast conditions with a crew, which helped shape his riding to be versatile and spontaneous, which is a recipe for explosive snowboarding. “We ride sugar, ice, and there are big crowds. It’s New Jersey, so we learn to love the conditions and taking an alternative approach to them while zipping around people. The conditions are what you make it out to be!”
