Staff Pick : Derek Huntoon

We heard about Derek quite some time ago. I believe the first time was in discussion with Marhar Snowboards owner Nathan Morse.  That would make sense considering Derek is a member of the amazing team of shreds Marhar has managed to put together. Lots of emphasis on Derek’s jump skills whenever is name is brought up. We haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Derek in person, but in our brief contact he seems rad and has us stoked on his short early season edit.  While although Derek’s edit is a bit out of the norm of our usual staff pick it is no less entertaining. It also has a quite a “feel good” vibe to it. We like positive! Derek seems pretty nimble and we really hope to catch him at some of this year’s events putting that double back to good use.

Give us some info on you. Anything you want to talk about snowboard related?

I’m 19 years old and have been riding for about 4 years now. I love to snowboard and I love compete in slopestyle. First time I ever went snowboarding was at Apple Mountain and I knocked myself out on the bunny hill! On a better note I finished 6th at the 2013 USASA Nationals. Huge shoutout to Team Marhar!! 

Talk about the edit. 

This edit was just one day of riding at Hanson.  We had been trying to get a crew together to get some shots and everything worked out with weather and what not. It was a decent  little edit for what we had to work with as far as the small jump lol
