I like Danny but if he thinks he's contributing to snowboardings growth that's kind of a joke. If he wants to be able to live off snowboarding somebody has to make it mainstream, otherwise no companies are gonna put sponsorship money in to it and expose it to the world. Kids have to get inspired to ride somehow and locking yourself in a cabin in the woods all winter and riding for yourself isn't gonna do that. We all wish it would but there needs to be exposure for there to be money in the sport and for new riders to emerge. Shaun is really one of the only people pushing that. Hating him for being the only person actually bringing snowboarding to the world is stupid. Seriously If white didn't exist how many households would even be able to know a snowboarder. There's your proof that snowboarding needs Shaun White.
